| The Westminster Kennel Club Show is held at Madison Square Garden in New York City every February. It is considered the most prestigious dog show in the world.
In 1992, the Westminster Kennel Club changed the format of their show to restrict the dogs that may compete to only AKC champions. In this same year, the Chinese Cresteds, 32 of them, competed in Westminster for the first time as a Toy breed. Since that time, Gingery Chinese Cresteds have competed in this gala event almost every year.
Unfortunately, our entries were not accepted in 1997, having arrived just after the 2,500th dog (the show's limit) was reached.
