Five home-grown canines are in the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show.

I will never, quite honestly, 'get' this particular event, but it's a huge deal every year.

The 141st Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show started on Saturday, February 10 and wraps up tonight (Tuesday).

Here are the five:

  • Faira, also a Keeshond is from Colorado Springs
  • Blus, a Greater Swiss Mountain from Colorado Springs
  • Otto, a Wirehaired Vizal from Greenwood Village

The overall champion, known as the 'Best in Show' will be crowned this evening. Check your local TV listing for channels and times.
