That must have been the year when the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show triumphantly returned to Madison Square Garden. Unfortunately, the coronavirus pandemic prevented it – again.
But while the environment and time remain atypical, the winner of the new best show will be crowned on Wednesday, ending his run as the reigning champion of Wasabi Peking, who appears to be enjoying retirement – even if he refuses to play.
Originally scheduled for late January in New York, the annual competition was moved to June due to an increase in corovirus cases. And for the second year in a row, it will be held in Lyndhurst, the Gothic Renaissance Palace in Taritown, New York, rather than in the Garden.
Dogs, so far, are not bothered.
How to watch tonight’s action
The New York Times will cover Wednesday’s group finale and best show awards, with comments, analysis and photos from Lyndhurst.
TV coverage in the United States will be on FS1, starting with a preview at 7 p.m. In Canada the event will be held on Sportsnet One.

Event streaming is available on Fox Now and Fox Sports apps. The Spanish-language version of the show will air on Fox Deportes on Thursday at 6 p.m.
