Great Scottie

Perhaps the biggest favorite in dog show history, Sadie the Scottish Terrier, winning the Westminster Dog Show.

Sadie has won 112 Best in Show Ribbons in her illustrious career.

While I prefer a bigger dog like 2006 champ Rufus and Mrs. Poop prefers one with floppier ears like 2008 champ Uno, we know greatness when we see it.

Unfortunately Sadie’s moment was ruined by some people from PETA. While I don’t hate PETA the way most people do (I appreciate their mission and think they have good humor on most topics but they should chose their battles better, ie stick with hot naked chicks in anti-fur ads) I’m angry that they chose to upstage Sadie. Their signs said “Mutts Rule” and “Breeders Kill” protesting the fact that dog show dogs are purebreds in an effort to encourage people to adopt mixed breed dogs from shelters instead of buying purebred dogs from often unscrupulously breeders.

But it’s not Sadie’s fault she’s a purebred or that’s she’s dominating the dog show circuit. I guess there will always be haters.
