Dog Pillows Sales Boom Expected - Kennel Club Show

The 135th Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show is taking place today and tomorrow at New York's Madison Square Garden, and I'm bracing myself for a run on needlepoint pillows that feature dogs.

It's not news that dog pillows are popular--but I didn't realize that there are approximately 1.6 million dogs in NYC alone, with Yorkshire terriers topping the city's list of most popular dog. That many dogs means there's millions of dog lovers too, who are expected to be out in record numbers to root for their favorite breeds and to get a glimpse of less common dogs, like the high-energy wire-haired pointing griffon.

Wonder if Sadie the Scottish terrier will win top prize as anticipated or if the bulldog from Manhattan (Razzle Dazzle) will grab it.

Either way, I'm stocking up on souvenir needlepoint pillows and I suggest you do the same.
