Plot Synopsis

Each year approximately 2500 dogs -- all of whom have attained the rank of champion -- compete in seven groups (Toy; Hound; Terrier; Herding; Working; Sporting; Non-Sporting) in a two-day event, and the seven group winners then vie for Best in Show during the evening of the second day. First held in 1877, the Westminster Kennel Dog Show is America's second-longest continuously held sporting event, second only to The Kentucky Derby. Westminster was first telecast in 1948 with Ch. Rock Ridge Night Rocket, a Bedlington Terrier, selected as Best in Show.
