Saks goes Doggy with Westminster

When an email shows up that says Saks and Westminster, you know you've got a good one. At least you do if you're like me and love shopping and dogs.

The Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show began today. The biggest and best in the country, it's a great way to watch and learn about breeds. Then, if you are dogless currently, and decide you want a dog, please go the shelter or rescue route. Shelters get many pure breds, and breed specific rescues operate in almost every state. is a great resource. My own German Shepherd was rescued from a puppy mill.

Last week Saks in NYC hosted last years cutie winner Uno. The afternoon benefited Angel on a Leash, a charity of the Westminster Kennel Club.

Is this a fun idea or what? I've always wanted to take my dog shopping with me. She enjoys luxury as much as much as anyone.

"Dog owners gathered on the 8th floor of the Saks NY flagship, to have their pets reviewed by the co-host of the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show, David Frei.

Best in Show prizes were awarded by Saks in three categories: Best Style, Best Personality, and Best Hair.

A long line wrapped around Saks's Home department to have copies of this year's Westminster Poster autographed by Uno, who paw-printed, and artist Trish Biddle. Uno also posed for pictures with suggested donations going to Angel on a Leash. "

Enjoy the show tonight and tomorrow. I'll be rooting for the herding group winner.
