The excitement is building in New York, with the Westminster Kennel Club show well underway. In agility, handlers guided their dogs through a timed course of tunnels, ramps, weave poles, and other obstacles. The grand champion of the event was Trick, a Border Collie, owned and handled by John Nys of Rhode Island.

Watch Trick’s winning run:

But extra points for enthusiasm went to Shetland Sheepdog, Stripe, who won the 16-inch class barking all the way!

The darling Beagle, Mia,  may have lost  a bit of her concentration, but she won the audience’s heart two-fold over!

Watch her run:

Now comes the breed judging, and the much-anticipated Best in Show on Tuesday evening. Will C.J. the German Short-Haired Pointer hold his crown? What we know for sure is that our canine friends won’t disappoint us: The audience will leave smiling at some unexpected antic, kiss, or surprise winner.
