The 27 Saddest Dogs at the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show

The Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show, according to its website, "predates the invention of the light bulb, the automobile, and the zipper; the building of the Brooklyn Bridge and the Washington Monument; and manned air flights and the establishment of the World Series...The dog show has survived power outages, snowstorms, a national depression, two World Wars and a tugboat strike that threatened to shut down the city."

That's not a brief history, it's a show of strength. It's the Kennel Club's way of saying: dogs, your resistance is futile. We will outlast you.

But dogs can't read websites, so they don't understand. They just look at you with those pleading eyes, silently crying out for help. "Sarah McLachlan?" they ask. "Is that you?"
