Virus postpones Westminster Kennel Club’s annual dog show

NEW YORK: The Westminster Kennel Club’s annual dog show has become the latest event in New York to be postponed or canceled as the number of coronavirus cases rises.

The club’s board of governors announced on Wednesday it was postponing its 2022 event, which is due for the end of January, to a later year. No new date given.

The health and safety of all participants at the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show are of paramount importance, the group said in a statement. We appreciate the community’s continued interest and support as we delay the show at a time when we can safely hold it.

The dog show attracts contestants from across America and is usually held at Madison Square Garden in February. Last year it was moved to June and held at the Lyndhurst Estate in suburban Tarrytown, north of New York City. Spectators were not allowed, and human participants had to be vaccinated or tested new.

A Pekingese named Wasabi won Best in Show by defeating a Whippet, a French Bulldog, an Old English Sheepdog, a German Shorthaired Pointer, a Samoyed and a West Highland White Terrier.
