I just love how competitive male swimmers are just absolute himbo meat heads. They spend every free moment from 9 to 22 with their head in a pool, going in a straight line, eating everything in sight. Every interview their eyes are so empty, their smiles are so big, their muscles are so rippling, their skin is so clear. They just exist in a pure state of tablua rasa. What a delight.

The 145th annual Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show took place at Lyndhurst Mansion in Tarrytown, New York, on Sunday, and it is one of my life’s greatest regrets that I was not in attendance. Luckily, there was plenty of photographic evidence of the event, which closed out strong by offering its top honors to a Pekingese named Wasabi. Naturally, Wasabi’s gorgeous countenance inspired many thoughts; let’s delve into them, shall we?

so wait is it incorrect to say 'WKC judges'? meaning judges that judge at Westminster?
The judges that judge at Westminster are AKC judges. That’s where they’re judging the rest of the year, and receive their education and credentials from.

i wonder why WKC judges are so hot for boxers. like, genuinely i wonder if there's a reason for it.
You mean AKC? Who knows, some sort of kennel club politics for sure. If you look at the other groups you can also see that each group has breeds that are likely to win more often, some a ridiculous amount. Just statistically these dogs cannot represent their breed better than other highly accomplished individuals like the ones at Westminster so to me it’s just…stupid.

Hi, where'd you find those stats? Are they available for other groups?
Yes, on the Westminster Kennel Club website under About > Records > Conformation Records > Group Records.
Link HERE.
The Working Group statistics are also…suspicious:

A Pekingese named Wasabi, who is the grandson of a previous winner, has been awarded best in show at the Westminster Kennel Club dog show, notching a fifth victory for the unmistakable toy breed. A whippet named Bourbon was named runner-up.
Waddling through a small-but-mighty turn in the ring on Sunday night, Wasabi clinched the prestigious prize after winning the big American Kennel Club National Championship in 2019.
“He has showmanship. He fits the breed standard. He has that little extra something, that sparkle, that sets a dog apart,” said Wasabi’s handler and breeder, David Fitzpatrick, who guided the Peke’s grandfather Malachy to the Westminster title in 2012.
How will Wasabi celebrate? “He can have a filet mignon. And I’ll have Champagne,” Fitzpatrick, of East Berlin, Pennsylvania, said with a laugh.
Wasabi came out on top of a finalist pack that also included Mathew the French bulldog, Connor the old English sheepdog, Jade the German shorthaired pointer, Striker the samoyed, and a west highland white terrier named Boy. Altogether, 2,500 champion dogs entered the show.
My boy Boy got robbed! I was also rooting for Striker.

Creepy Little Mop Somehow Wins Westminster Dog Show
Tumblr media
The Westminster Dog Show is the second-oldest continuous sporting event in the United States, and the 2021 edition was somehow won by a creepy little flat faced mop. Claiming to be a Pekingese named Wasabi, the sentient mop creature and its handler duped the judges to win Best in Show, beating out several actual dogs. “This marks the first time a living mop has won at Westminster,” said Judge Patricia Craige Trotter, who probably forgot what real dogs looked like during the pandemic. “Whether it’s a dog or not, that mop was very cute and just stole my heart.”

….AND the Pekinese went BIS (for the second time), and the Whippet went Reserve BIS. UGH.
nothing against the dogs, they’re both beautiful representations of their breeds, but STILL. UGH.
At least I can finally say that a Samoyed won the Working Group…
