11. JUDGES VET WHAT?
As expected, Westminster judges have to examine every inch of each show dog. This includes everything from the tops of their ears to the tips of their tails, and of course, all that's in between. Most people do not know, however, that this thorough analysis includes the dog's nether region (i.e., the male dogs' testicles). It is still uncertain what they are exactly looking for, but a judge did confirm in Business Week that it is a part of the procedure. Thank goodness for latex gloves.
