Quick Facts
  • There have been 283,841 dogs entered in Westminster's 128 shows through 2004.

  • Through the 2004 show, there have been 1,623 judges who have officiated at least once, some as many as 22 times, at Westminster.

  • Only one time has the offspring of a Best In Show winner duplicated the feat. In 2000, the English Springer Spaniel Ch. Salilyn N' Erin's Shameless repeated the 1993 BIS accomplishment of her sire, Ch. Salilyn's Condor.

  • Two Best In Show winners, Norwich Terriers, had the same sire: 1994's Ch. Chidley's Willum the Conqueror and 1998's Ch. Fairewood Frolic were offspring of Ch. Royal Rock Don of Chidley (making them half brother/sister)

  • The Papillon, Ch. Loteki Supernatural Being, is the only dog to capture Best In Show at the World Dog Show (1998 in Helsinki) and Best In Show at Westminster (1999).

  • Two dogs have won Best In Show at both Westminster and Crufts in England, each of them winning at the English show before coming to the U.S.: the Lakeland Terrier, Ch. Stingray of Derryabah (Crufts 1967, WKC 1968) and the Kerry Blue Terrier, Ch. Torums Scarf Michael (Crufts 2000, WKC 2003).
