Crowd-Favorite Pekingese, Deerhound Advance at Westminster Show

A regal three-year-old Pekingese, a Scottish deerhound, a Chinese Shar-Pei and a bearded collie who likes to stand on his hind legs and hug people advanced to the final round of the Westminster Kennel Club show in New York that ends tonight.

The four champion purebreds face the winners of the sporting group, which includes Golden Retrievers; working dogs, such as Akitas; and terriers, before the best in show is named. Judges will name winners of various individual breeds during the day. The best in show will be picked at about 11 p.m. New York time.
