With the Westminster Dog show upon us, I would like to shine the spotlight on a serious matter that requires national attention and a healthy dose of cable outrage.
You know what dog is the most popular in America for the 23rd straight year? The lab. Chocolate lab, black lab, yellow lab…America loves our Labrador retrievers. Golden retrievers too. They were 4th most popular
They fetch stuff. They farm, they hunt, they bark. They wag their tails. They are dogs with a capital "D"
But you know what dog has never won best in show at the Westminster Dog Show? That's right. The lab, the golden. No retriever. Not once, not ever.
Instead they award scottish terriers, Norwich terriers, this terrier, that terrier. Affenpinshcer Pekingnese, …even a Bichon Frise. Think about that…Pekingnese and Bichon Frise…these animals with their curls and frills and manscaping…or Bison Frise-scaping in this case. These animals are cute, sure. These animals fit nicely in your lap, absolutely. But where I come from we have a name for cute animals that fit on your lap. Where I come from, we call them CATS!
And this is the Westminster DOG show. So "At This Hour" I call on Westminster to end this outrage, allow labs and goldens not just in the Public square but in the winners circle…. End this "War on Labs"
