2015 Westminster Dog Show Preview

Coton de Tulear
Football season is over.  Baseball spring training hasn't started yet, and the NASCAR season doesn't start for another week.  What's a sports fan to do?  Well, I suggest the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show.    On February 16 and 17 of 2015, the finest canines in the world will gather at the World's Most Famous Arena to vie for the title of top dog at the 139th Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show.

Television coverage kicks off on Monday night on CNBC at 8:00 p.m.  Monday's coverage will include the group competitions for the Hound, Toy, Non-Sporting and Herding groups.  The Non-Sporting Group features one of the two new breeds in this year's show, the Coton de Tulear.

Pretentious Wirehaired Vizsla
Tuesday night's coverage will begin at 8:00 p.m. on USA.  Tuesday's coverage will include the group competitions in the Sporting, Working and Terrier groups.  The Sporting Group includes the second new breed at this year's show, the Wirehaired Vizsla.

At the end of Tuesday night, the WKC will crown one canine with the prestigious title of Best in Show for 2015.  According to the Wynn Sports Book and Casino, the odds on favorite to win Best in Show is Matisse, a Portuguese Water Dog.
