How Can You Not Love This Face?

  The Westminster Kennel Club dog show is an event I look forward to every year. It's a great way to discover new breeds, since the AKC adds new/old breeds to their roster, and visit with old favorites. I have so much fun remembering past winners.

I've seen this year's winner, the affenpinscher, Banana Joe, in other shows and love his sweet little face and indomitable personality.

Congratulations Banana Joe! You're the winner of many hearts, and of course the 137th Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show.
