2. Love em all, but especially the working dogs and those not requiring all the grooming!

Guess there are choices for everyone though.

3. Siba the Standard Poodle Wins the 2020 Westminster Dog Show With a Regal Attitude

Siba the Standard Poodle Wins the 2020 Westminster Dog Show With a Regal Attitude

On Tuesday night, New York’s Madison Square Garden really went to the dogs. Quite literally: the stadium was packed with a crowd cheering on their favorites — but not for the Knicks, not Phish, not even Harry Styles. This time, they were assembled for the 144th Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show. And an hour before midnight, the champion was finally crowned: Siba the standard poodle, a surprise to a crowd rooting for the golden retriever and Havanese fan favorites.

“She just has this confidence in herself, this attitude. She keeps me on her toes. She’s so elegant and full of herself and funny,” Siba’s handler Chrystal Clas told reporters before the big win.

Her owners had already decided that it was Siba’s time to retire after this Westminster round, making the win all the sweeter. “We think she’ll be a great mom,” Clas said just after the show finished. Even better: she’ll be retiring to live with Clas and her family, including her two-year-old son, who Clas says loves Siba already.
