The GBGV Makes a Grand Entrance to Westminster


As we know, AKC’s 192nd breed, the Grand Basset Griffon Vendéen makes its Westminster debut in this year’s Hound Group. All things considered, it’s fair to wonder why it took so long.

Pier 92 was the site for the 143rd Westminster Kennel Club breed judging just a couple of weeks ago. The parking facility on the roof of Pier 92 was closed during Westminster due to the structure’s instability. It seems now that city officials have declared the entire structure to be unsafe, not just the parking structure. It makes one wonder if this will affect next year’s Westminster breed judging?
