Transcript for Roughly 2,800 dogs vie to be America's top dog
Finally tonight here, the primping, the pampering, the pooches now up for top dog. ABC's linsey Davis takes us behind the scenes at the Westminster dog show. Reporter: If it's true that every dog has its day, this is it. From the cute and cuddly to the compact and colossal. Roughly 2,800 dogs, more than 190 breeds, all vying to be America's top dog at the Westminster dog show. If this is what it means to be treated like a dog count me in. Is this a bad hair day or is this just every day? No, we consider this a good hair day! Reporter: Teased and trimmed. Sprayed and stroked. Before competing for best in show, these pups are pampered and primed. More than pets, they're prize possessions. How much does something like this cost? Thousands of dollars a year? If not tens of thousands? Yeah. Hundreds of thousands probably. Reporter: And the reward? A fancy bowl. No prize money. Just prestige. Some of these pups might have a known pick with that. I love the trainer that says no that's a good hair day. Thanks to linsey Davis tonight. Thanks for starting with week off with us. From all of us here, good night. I used to think news is news. It's all the same. But It's not!
