More than 2,800 elite dogs from across the country compete for top honors on Monday, Feb. 13 and Tuesday, Feb. 14 at the 141st Annual Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show, presented by Purina Pro Plan.
PPP has asked Andy Roddick, guardian to two adorable English bulldogs, Bob Costas and Billie Jean King, to weigh in on upcoming competition with some bark-etology (get it?).
And this isn’t just for bragging rights. Back by popular demand, the Purina Pro Plan $1 Million Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show Bracket Challenge (a mouthful, right?) rallies fans to apply their best bracket strategies to correctly predict the seven Westminster group winners and the top prize – aka “Best in Show” – for a chance to win $1 Million.
“I’m no stranger to bracketology, and I’m a huge dog lover, so I’m excited to partner with Purina Pro Plan as this year’s ‘barketologist’,” said Roddick, who picked the miniature poodle to take “Best in Show” honors.
“[I] challenge other dog lovers and sports fans to put their bracket skills to the test.”
