They say you can't teach an old dog new tricks. Well, have you ever watched the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show?
The 146th Annual Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show is underway at the Lyndhurst Estate in Tarrytown, New York, six months after the competition's original January date was postponed due to surging COVID-19 cases.
Nearly 3,500 dogs of more than 200 different breeds are on hand, and after the 2021 event went on without spectators, fans have returned to the historic Lyndhurst Estate.
The coveted "Best of Show" honor is up for grabs. The ultimate prize will be announced on Wednesday at 7:30 p.m. ET. Wasabi the Pekingese won last year's honors.
Westminster breed competition runs from 8 a.m. ET to 4:30 p.m. Monday, June 20, Tuesday, June 21 and Wednesday, June 22 and can be streamed live

Will the hound be trumpeting a victory, or is its tiny cousin toying with a win? What about the French bulldog with an owner in the NFL? Or has the German shepherd got the flow to take the top prize?
Trumpet the bloodhound, Hollywood the Maltese, Winston the French bulldog and River the German shepherd were chosen Tuesday to advance to the final round of the Westminster Kennel Club dog show. Three more finalists will be selected Wednesday night, when all seven will face off for the coveted best in show prize.
One of Winston's owners is defensive lineman Morgan Fox, who was signed last month by the Los Angeles Chargers after six seasons with the Los Angeles Rams and Carolina Panthers.
"If this is how my parents felt watching my games all these years I apologize," Fox tweeted after Winston's win.
Athletes have found their way to Westminster in the past.
New York Yankees great Lou Gehrig brought his German shepherd to the competition in the 1930s and fellow Hall of Famer Mike Mussina had an Irish setter that competed. Big league catcher Ryan Hanigan owned a breed-winning Australian shepherd during his playing days and former Florida State linebacker Keith Carter showed a Rottweiler.
Trumpet, a bloodhound from a storied bloodline, loves for the crowds and energy of the big show, his handlers say. River took the ring in stride, but handler Lenny Brown said they're taking the competition "one step at a time."
And Hollywood has, well, star quality.
"She loves being in the ring. And she loves outside the ring, too," handler Tim Lehman told the crowd in an in-ring interview.
Among Hollywood's pint-sized opponents in the toy group was Porsche, the first-ever semifinalist from her breed, the Russian toy. It just became eligible for the Westminster show this year. Not quite a year and a half old, Porsche took a spirited turn under the lights Tuesday night.
"Small dog, but big personality," owner and handler Jolanta Terrell of North Palm Beach, Florida, said before the competition.
Also new was the mudi, a Hungarian herding dog. A mudi named Guava took the breed's first Westminster award.
On the other end of the spectrum, American Staffordshire terrier winner Louie goes into the semifinals Wednesday to try for his final best in show.
After winning the top prize at dozens of other shows, the 8 1/2-year-old Louie is retiring after Westminster, where he's made the semifinals multiple times.
Whatever happens Wednesday night, all he had to do was look at his competitors to see his legacy. Two of his daughters and one of his sons won ribbons alongside him in their breed competition Tuesday.
And to owner Kim Rudzik of Westfield, Massachusetts, Louie has a bigger title than best in the show.
"The coolest dog ever," she said.
