I’ve been on the floor since 8 am this morning. The better part of my day was spent at Piers 92 and 94, watching the best of the best battle it out for the chance to make to Madison Square Gardens.

I had a chance to get up close and personal with dogs you wouldn’t always see at the dog park. Ibizan Hounds, Cirnechi dell’Etna, Brussels Griffons, and a few Xoloitzcuintli. But in the end, there can be only one… in each of the judging group. Here are the winners of day 1 of the 2017 Westminster Dog Show:

Hound Group Winner

Norwegian Elkhound: GCH CH Vin-Melca’s Daggarwood Delight

Toy Group Winner

Pekinese: GCHB CH Pequest Pickwick

Non-Sporting Group Winner

Miniature Poodle: GCHB CH Danfour Avalon As If

Herding Group Winner

German Shepherd: GCH CH Lockenhaus’ Rumor Has It V Kenlyn

Check back in tomorrow for the rest of the Westminster Dog Show Results, along with the announcement everyone is looking for – the Best in Show!
