Scenes from the Westminster Kennel Club dog show

Nearly 2,600 dogs are competing in 179 breeds and varieties in this year’s Westminster Kennel Club dog show in New York’s Madison Square Garden. They all carry the abbreviation “Ch.” before their names. It stands for champion, since every purebred dog at the 135th Westminster Kennel Club event has already been a winner somewhere.

Six breeds are newcomers, including Icelandic sheepdogs, redbone coonhounds, Leonbergers, Boykin spaniels, cane corsos and blue tick coonhounds.
