Some fun Westminster Facts:
The Westminster Kennel Club was established in 1877, making it America's oldest organization dedicated to the sport of purebred dogs.
The first telecast of Westminster was in 1948, three years before "I Love Lucy" premiered.
First held in 1877, the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show is America's second-longest continuously held sporting event, behind only the Kentucky Derby
Only one time has the offspring of a Best In Show winner duplicated the feat. In 2000, the English Springer Spaniel Ch. Salilyn N' Erin's Shameless repeated the 1993 BIS accomplishment of her sire, Ch. Salilyn's Condor.
