Each year during the month of February my mother comes into New York City to show her french bulldogs at the two dog shows that are alway the same weekend. The NYC Metro Specialty Dog Show and of course the Westminster Dog Show. This year I decided to bring my camera along and take some photos capturing all the gorgeous dogs.

Eden Winning Best of Breed

The highlight of the NYC Metro show was Eden (the dog in the following photos) winning best of breed. It is always amazing to see the work it takes to get show dogs in the ring looking the way they do.
