The 137th Westminster Dog Kennel Club Show started today, bringing thousands of well-coiffed dogs to Madison Square Garden in search of the coveted prize of "Best in Show." In honor of this day, we've put together our own Best in Show collection of recent and upcoming dog books.
We'll admit that most of the dogs in these books don't meet the standards of Westminster (the subject of Uggie and Sorry I Pooped in Your Shoe have probably never seen a blue ribbon), but odds are they don't care about that.
