Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show is now history for 2012. The Pekinese won Best In Show and was toted around New York City under the arm of the handler during the celebration. In my opinion the "show" was in the other dogs. Of course, being partial to the Doberman we were on her team but the Irish Setter and the Dalmation were eye catching, showy dogs who definitely left an impression on me.
Typically this means an increase in the demand for puppies of the breed of the moment, which now could be the Pekinese. This article in Forbes Magazine gives a good illustration of the first time puppy owner's experience. It's worth the few minutes of your time to read it.
