Local Dog Heads to Top Dog Show


Dog lovers all over Central Oregon will be rooting for an Irish Wolfhound named "Paddy" from Prineville, who is invited to the most prestigious dog show in the world: The Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show. Paddy's owner and handler, Nancy Laney says she and her husband Dean will travel to New York in a few days and meet up with a select few other Irish Wolfhounds. "There’s only five of every breed invited. And after that, they open it up for just so many. And they're doing some renovation at Westminster at Madison Square Garden and so they've limited the amount of dogs this year to 2000." And that includes hundreds of breeds of dogs involved. Laney says Paddy is the number five dog in the U.S. and is an imposing dog, standing about 36 inches at the shoulder and when he stands on his hind legs, he's well over six feet. But he's one of the gentlest dogs she's known. You will be able to see Paddy competing at the Westminster Kennel Club's 136th Annual Dog Show on February 13th and 14th.
