This was a big deal to us at the Lucky Penny household.  Every year we watch the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show.  I love seeing all the dogs.  I don't understand the sport, it's just so subjective.  But it's fun when a dog that I like takes the big prize.  After many years, a Piccolo dog.  A Pekingese!  I was quoted in the Red Eye this past week, which was a little of a let down, as my book and web site were discussed (my credentials other than being the companion of a Peke) but not mentioned in the article.  This little one is just magnificent.  I read a lot of ignorant comments on Facebook about how he was not a "real dog".  I've lived with six so far, and they like to roll in smelly things, and play just like any other.  The closest I've had to a show dog in appearance was my Penny, and her looks contributed to her miserable life prior to the one she had with me.  I love my imperfect little Piccolo, and every day she's my Best in Show.

I, too, was happy to see a Peke win. My little guy,Pooh, got an extra treat that night. :)
