Gromit Hosts Westminster Dog Show, Kind Of
The Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show is partnering with DreamWorks Animation SKG to inaugurate a historic innovation to showcase the 2005 show. This marks the first time in Westminster’s history that the dog show has accepted a sponsorship partner outside of a dog food company.
For the first time, highlights of the competition in the 165 breeds and varieties during the two days of the show will be shot using handheld cameras and will be posted via streaming video on the Westminster website, http://www.westminsterkennelclub.org. The segments will feature Gromit of Aardman’s Wallace and Gromit as host, in preparation for the release of the first feature film in the franchise October 7. These highlights will be posted within two hours of the actual competition for any particular breed or variety, allowing viewers to see the progression of the different breed contenders as they vie to be Best of Breed.
