Sarasota, FL (WWSB) -- Over two thousand dogs representing 209 different breeds will descend upon Madison Square Garden in New York City this weekend. The Westminster Dog Show is the most prestigious dog show in the country with all the teams vying for the coveted "Best in Show" prize. 

Keke Kahn, of Sarasota, is an all-breed judge - having been a part of the Westminster Dog Show since 1972. She began her career as a breeder in 1960, when, she says, "I fell in love with the Lhasa Apso." Since then, she has bred 58 AKC champion Lhasas, including six all-breed BIS dogs and many group winners. 

The dog show begins Saturday with Agility Championships, with the main dog shows on both Monday and Tuesday.
