(SOUNDBITE) (English) WESTMINSTER KENNEL CLUB PRESIDENT, CHARLTON REYNDERS III, SAYING:"Lyndhurst, one of the finest examples of 19th century Gothic revival architecture in America, is no stranger to dog shows. For three decades, local kennel clubs hosted dog shows on these parklike landscaped grounds. We are honored to hold Westminster this year, in particular because it's allowed us to keep our tradition alive as the second oldest continuously held sporting event in America."
