Sadie, a Scottish Terrier triumphed at the 2010 Westminster Dog Show, bringing home the coveted "Best in Show' trophy.
The most interesting category for me was the Toy Dog Category. This years' trophy was stolen by Smash JP Moonwalk, an overdressed poodle. Typical.
I was voting for the Brussels Griffon myself. The dog that looks most like Chewbacca.
Either way, I don't see how a poodle could beat a pug, but then I don't know anything about dogs.

I'm thinking of trading in my fine BONE China for this even finer ORGAN China. Designer Lisa Turner celebrates the 19th Century's etchings of the human machine and the beauty of who we are inside with this new dish set. The anatomical drawings will resuscitate any boring lunch. You can get them at tableart.com The teacup? $95.oo and the plate $74.00.
For those that won't bother the waiter when there's a fly on their plate, Monica Tsang has created ENTO, a bug- inspired dinnerware set. You can also find this at Tableart.com.
The artists are part of Paul Bishop's British company "The New English". Bishop organized the group of contemporary designers to turn the table on the traditional English Pottery. Could I have some more, please?

Punxsutawney Phil has predicted another six weeks of winter after seeing his shadow this morning. Yet Staten Island Chuck has declared an end to winter. So, as for their weather-predicting capabilities, groundhogs are no better or worse than the guys on the six o'clock news.
But how does the woodchuck function as a savior of mankind?
In the film Groundhog Day, Bill Murray is stuck repeating the same day over and over again until he squashes his egotistical ways, learns to be compassionate and generous, and accepts others as they are.
In religious terms, he needs to learn how to live life right.
