Ayer y hoy ha tenido lugar en el Madison Square Garden de Nueva York el 134th Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show con la participación de 2.500 perros de las más variopintas razas. Este es el tipo de historia que nunca saldrá publicada en nuestro diario. Por ello os presento esta edición de fotos perrunas. Increíble la cantidad de gente que acudió al recinto y también increíble la profesionalidad de los fotógrafos que escriben sus pies de foto con una finura extrema, incluyendo la raza del can y en muchos de ellos el nombre del dueño.
