The 2017 Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show took place from Saturday, Feb. 11 to Tuesday, Feb. 14 at the Piers 92, 94 and Madison Square Garden in Manhattan.
Staples’ very own Marri Carroll, the Director of Student Activities/Purchasing, and her own two Corgi’s were in the show. Carroll handled her male dog, Puck, while Joan Scott, a professional handler, showed her female Corgi, Mimsi.
Carroll has been showing dogs for almost 40 years and was excited to make it this show, “Westminster is the ultimate dog show. The very best of the breed is there. It’s an extremely prestigious show” Carroll said. On Monday Mimsi won the Award of Merit, essentially 3rd place, while her male, Puck, unfortunately didn't place.
