These Photos from the West Minster Dog Show 2011 Will Melt Hearts

The Westminster Dog Show 2011 was this year's incarnation of the world’s most prestigious canine competition, and even if you don’t keep up to date on the details of dog judging, you will be hard pressed not to enjoy this collection of pictures from the event.

In preparation for the show, both dogs and owners don their finest hairdos and grooming in order to look their absolute best. This year, the Westminster Dog Show 2011 was no different in this regard. These pictures show that the results were a hilarious mix of adorability, confidence and of course, at times, even absurdity.
