"God loves a terrier."

Oh, yes, it is once again time for the Westminster Kennel Club dog show.  The pomp and circumstance began yesterday, so in honor of it, I'll spend some time tonight watching the mockumentary Best in Show.  Brought to you by the same folks that made This Is Spinal Tap, Waiting for Guffman, and A Mighty Wind, it is absolutely hilarious.  Christopher Guest, Fred Willard, Michael McKean, Catherine O'Hara, and Eugene Levy (just to name a few) star. 

The Norwich terrier that wins in the movie is a former best in show.  Cookie (Catherine O'Hara) loves her dog so much that she and her husband (Eugene Levy) write and perform songs about terriers.  Here's a clip:

It's fabulous - a must see!
