Yesterday marked the beginning of the 2012 Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show which is being held at Madison Square Garden in New York. Over 2,000 dogs of 185 different breeds convened in Manhattan on February 13th for day one of the 136th annual show.

Among the many dogs prepping and primping were six new breeds that were added to the show. A number of breeds have already claimed the best of their breed titles including Martha Stewart’s own Bichon Frise which took its breed title!

The 2-day competition will conclude tonight, where the top dog will take home the title of Best in Show on live television.

Last year, the winner was a Scottish Deerhound named Hickory. Have you been watching the dog show on TV? Which breed are you rooting for this year?
