The 137th Annual Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show is the annual canine confab where champion dogs, as well perfumed and blow-dried as Beyonce, get to strut their stuff. Will Golden Retrievers stay in the top spot as the show's most popular entry when Norwegian Elkhounds are nipping at their heels? Bloomberg Rankings analyzed entries from the past five years and found some breeds are surging to the head of the pack.
