NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — The Olympics may be a half a world away but New York had some incredibly talented athletes competing right in town.
More than 200 dogs wowed the crowds Saturday at the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show’s first-ever agility championship, CBS 2 reported.
The event marked the first time that mixed-breed dogs have appeared in the Westminster Dog Show in more than 100 years.
The challenge included jumps, tunnels, and ramps for the pooches to traverse.
Ultimately, it was a border collie named Kelso who won the competition, CBS 2 reported.
The big show returns to Madison Square Garden Monday and Tuesday night, with all the traditional breeds and three new breeds competing for best in breed and best in show.
This is the Westminster Kennel Club’s 138th year, making it the second longest, continuously-running American sporting event after the Kentucky Derby.
