This Is What Happens When A Commoner Goes To The Fanciest Dog Event In The World. SO MANY DOGS.

Most of the dogs will sit in your lap if you call their name. They won't even be pretentious about it, despite their accomplishments. It's the best.

I found this article and thought it was perfect for the blog.  After all, this blog is about having fun…and what can be more fun than a commoner at the Westminster. Enjoy today’s article and let me know your thoughts below.

Hi, I’m Chelsea. I’m the animals editor and tend to steer clear of anything that ONLY promotes purebred dogs.

Purebred dogs are cute and deserve all the love but so do mutts!

More than anything, I am ~pro dog~ so wanted to see what the whole fuss was about. As a result, I did the very difficult task of hanging out with some adorable dogs and their very nice humans. This is what happened.

1. Arriving at the Westminster Kennel Club dog show is kind of crazy. Like, WOW LOOK AT ALL THESE DOGS crazy.

People are VERY pushy to want to get in while the dogs are very calm and very “whatever” about the whole thing. The man controlling the elevator entrance is VERY aggressive with his demands so you know he’s been yelling at a lot of people all day. The dogs know where to go and have a lot of chill so maybe humans should start learning from them. I’m just saying.

2. It’s really odd looking at a sea of dogs sorted by type. They mostly behave the same and they ALL have the same hairstyle.

3. Basically, they’re just in a clique that only their humans know they’re part of.

4. Oh, and DO NOT touch them while they are getting their hair done.

This was a mistake I made on more than one occasion. I AM SORRY. WHEN A DOG SMILES AT ME, MY INSTINCT IS TO PET IT. Everyone enjoyed this except the humans grooming because it takes a lot of time to look that good and the dogs have to wow everyone with their hairstyles.

Oh, and DO NOT touch them while they are getting their hair done.

5. The way they check the dogs is ALARMING.

Like, I know it’s all part of the “process,” but a grown-ass man in a fancy-ass suit being classy going up to a dog and scooping at his balls is really fucking weird. Like, you’re not a vet and checking for diseases. You’re a dog show person and just checking to see if his business is up to par. WHAT IF WE DID THAT TO YOU, SIR???

The way they check the dogs is ALARMING.

6. I found this magazine and it’s very dramatic. Papi seems to be the soap opera star of the dog world. This is all I know.
