The thing about the Westminster Dog Show is (and this is going to sound obvious) that there are so many dogs. If you watch the primetime TV broadcast, you see one of each breed—a perfect kibble-sized snapshot of the dog world. But attending the show, something you should absolutely do if you're in New York, is another beast altogether. Row upon row of dogs, dozens of each breed, and on any given pass through the benching area, there are hundreds of dogs out and about and ready to meet you.
These sheer numbers are something I wanted to capture, but it's tough to do in just a few photos. So I dumped a couple thousand pictures I took over the last two days, many of them blurry, and strung them together in the video above. Think of it as the world's largest animated gif, or the world's fastest slideshow—or just a feverish plunge into the trenches at Westminster.
(If you spot a favorite breed you want to see more of, holler in the comments. I'll pull out a photo for you if I can.)
