The 8 Wackiest Hairstyles from the Westminster Dog Show
Who’s that lady? That’s Foxy the Chinese crested at the 139th Annual Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show, working her salt and pepper locks like a sassy Diane Keaton. (Note the fashionable coat, which covers the breed’s hairless skin).
BELLE OF THE BALLS
There’s a very good reason they call them toy poodles, because some of them carry their favorite toys – balls – on their feet! See what we did there?
Excuse us, sir, you’re missing the point here! There’s a perfectly coiffed Pomeranian in your arm and you’re checking your email? There ought to be a law against this behavior.
THAT'S A WRAP
Clearly, this Maltese takes her look very seriously. It’s called wrapping. Wrapping is the process of placing sections of the dog’s long hair in sheets of silk paper and then holding it with a rubber band. It’s believed that it makes their coat grow faster.
It makes perfect sense that Paris the standard poodle would prefer his primping laying down. The dog show catwalk can be so demanding.
Like a celebrity on Oscar night, dog show prep is a process. And for this Komondor, a Hungarian breed often referred to as a “mop dog,” it’s one that includes lots and lots of purple hair ties.
KING OF THE JUNGLE
We’re not lion when we say this Tibetan mastiff seems bored with his look. We assure you, buddy, that you’re the show’s mane attraction.
Just like a watched pot, a watched poodle isn’t dog show ready in mere seconds. All good things take time.
