Ryan Hanigan’s Dog Wins Best in Breed Ribbon at Westminster Dog Show


 

Spoiled pooches seem to be a theme this week in baseball. First there was Masahiro Tanaka spending a couple hundred thousand to charter a jet apparently so his poodle could have space to run around on the flight from Tokyo to New York. And now there’s this:

Rays catcher Ryan Hanigan has a dog named, I’m not kidding, Copperridge What’s Your Dream, that just won a Best in Breed ribbon at the Westminster Dog Show.

Ryan was pretty happy about his animal, an Australian shepherd, beating out 43 other dogs to claim the ribbon at the world’s snootiest and most over-publicized dog show.

“It’s incredible that she went from my No. 1 bed buddy to best of breed at Westminster!!!” Hanigan said in a text to the Associated Press.

So Ryan’s pretty excited about his dog being deemed the best-looking by a bunch of rich people with nothing better to do than judge animals?

Okay. But what I want to know is, if the dog pees all over the living room, does it still get its face shoved in the pee to teach it a lesson? Or does a Westminster dog get to pee wherever the heck it wants?

Does a Westminster dog think, “Rich people said I’m pretty, I’m gonna urinate on that carpet and there’s nothing that moron can do about it?”

I think we need to cross breed Hanigan’s dog with Tanaka’s poodle. See if we can create the world’s most insufferable animal. Name it Taylor Swift.
