Tuesday night was one of those rare occurrences lately when both the Flyers and Sixers had the night off. There were no live sports to watch in the Philly sports scene but there was that dog show which so many people seem to get caught up in every year.
It's one of those things we can absolutely say we have no idea why people are into it. None. I mean, look at that thing that won.
smushed-in face frames a mop of flyaway fur and whose pace rivals a
snail's, is the fairest dog in the land.
The Peke put on a peak performance Tuesday night, wobbling off with best in show at the Westminster Kennel Club.
That thing looks like the kind of dog you'd watch for your ex-wife when she and her boyfriend go to Hawaii. You certainly don't take it bowling or buy it a fucking beer.
My favorite fact from the AP story: this was that dog's 115th best in show victory. Basically, he never gets to scrounge through the trash or chase squirrels because all he does is compete in dog shows. Poor guy.
