Review

"If you're a dog lover or a dog shower, this is a mandatory book."-- The Dayton Daily News


"Hundreds of amazing photographs and informative captions make this book fun and enriching to flip through. The true connoisseur will appreciate the enlightening information be it cultural, or canine, which lies between these captivating pictures."--Dog & Kennel magazine

From the Back Cover

Everyone loves a dog show and Westminster is the ultimate event. Through heart-warming photographs and engaging anecdotes, William Stifel introduces readers to the group of gentlemen who started the Westminster Kennel Club in 1877 and the dogs who meant the world to them. The sport of pure-bred dogs has grown in popularity and this book is a tribute to the men and women who have made Westminster the most positive influence in the sport. They've kept politics and personal whim from tainting any of the events or causing the club to stray from its objective.
Stifel follows the progression of the dog show, outlining the influence that war, political and cultural developments and changes in management have had on the shows, as well as the dogs. Full-color photographs of Best in Show winners and commentary describing these classy canines reveals the true nature of the dog show. Readers will find themselves entertained by the terrific pictures and enlightened by the text, be it cultural, historical, or canine.

A large and beautifully produced book that shows the winners of Westminster each of its years as it provides a social history of THE big dog event. Doesn't matter what breed you have, the winners here are all top dogs of their type and just beautiful. A great dog is a great dog, and usually they know it. For someone who has followed Westminster since the 1960's, its a trip down memory lane. The winners' photographs are stunning. the text also lets you know what happened to the winners' after their big win, like catching up on old friends. A nice gift for anyone interested in confirmation showing.

This book arrived in mint condition. Very clean. The only thing I was surprised about was a cigarette smell when I read it. Although it was not strong. Somehow it seemed fitting though because every one in the pre 1960's smoked. It was a bit of a nostalgia smell.

Another great reference book for people who show dogs! There are pictures (or paintings) of all the winners of Westminster and also a little bit of information about each dog!
