The 136th winner of Westminster Kennel Club’s top honor was the Pekingese, CH Palacegarden Malachy!  Congratulations to breeders Jim and Jean Smith and owners Iris Love,S Middlebrooks, and D Fitzpatrick! 

So, if you were keeping track of my predictions from the last issue of Straight Poop.  Only two (the Pug and the Weimeraner) of my 21 picks even made it to the Group competitions, and no, neither of them won.

Did you make any predictions?  How’d you do?
