Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?

The 140th Westminster Dog Show starts tonight at 8pm Eastern on CNBC. I always get a kick out of watching the pups strut their stuff. But this year we’re not just cheering for fun, we’re cheering for big bucks! Purina Pro Plan is running a million dollar bracket challenge!
The 140th Westminster Dog Show starts tonight at 8pm Eastern on CNBC. I always get a kick out of watching the pups strut their stuff. But this year we’re not just cheering for fun, we’re cheering for big bucks!

Purina Pro Plan is running a million dollar bracket challenge! You can sign up here

The game is simple. Just pick which pups you think will win each category and then pick which of those seven pups you think will win Best in Show. Pick a perfect bracket and you’re in for a fat chunk of change!

Here’s my “Zero Chance” bracket. All picks were made on the basis of dogs I like, which happens to strongly overlap with “dogs who never win.” Don’t bet with your heart like me and you’ll have a much better shot of winning

That said, we’re holding our breath, holding out hope the Ridgebacks could pull off the upset

Bracket entries are accepted up through 5pm Eastern today, so there’s still time to enter. Also, let me know who you’re rooting for. When the Ridgebacks get bounced from competition we’ll need some other pups to cheer on.

Good luck!

Comments for Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?

  1. I entered too… with the dogs I like… so I think we both will win the same lol.

  2. Pat says:

    Me, too! I think you have a better chance with Ridgebacks than I do with Bassets. 🙂

  3. Victoria says:

    i alerady put in my bracket and did not bet on ones i like as like you mine never win – but heres hoping that a Newf and a Ridgeback tie! Making both of us OVER THE MOON!

  4. Jan & Rusty says:

    Because my Rusty is a Welsh Terrier, I always hope the Welsh will win. But they seldom even give the Welsh any TV time, much less pick as a winner. My apologies to all the other doggies, but the world has no idea what they’re missing by not being owned by a Welshie.

  5. Kismet says:

    A complete waste of time-it’s all political anyway.

  6. Thanks for sharing, that was a fun bracket to fill out! I did a mix between breeds I like and breeds that have done well in the past. Fingers crossed that the Akita goes all the way!

  7. KarenS says:

    Well. Ridgebacks of course! Followed by Newfoundlands (remember Josh!). Kind of biased with my choices too 🙂

    We all root for those pups that are sitting there watching with us. They think we are crazy, as they know who already won our hearts.

  8. Jeff says:

    Go vizslas!

  9. Elyse says:

    I love these things! What fun to pick and choose. I went with a combination of dogs I’ve had, dogs I never heard of but think are cute, with an Aussie as the winner. I’m sure I’ll have as much luck at this as I do at Powerball!

  10. Abbie says:

    Ooh, fun! All my favorites never win, either. I probably will try to make an (un)educated guess, but even still, I don’t have much chance since I never have seen the Westminster. But it will be fun to put together a guess. Thanks for sharing!

  11. We have to watch the Ridgebacks tonight! We’ll be barking on Shadowridge One N Only At Firedance. She’s Khoi’s aunt!! (his sire’s litter mate) She’s a beautiful girl and looks a lot like Khoi (minus all the scrapes from running through brush…and better mannered) Three woofs for Adele!!!

  12. Cupcake says:

    Good luck! We’re rooting for the Ridgebacks, too!

    Love and licks,
    Cupcake

  13. Emmadog says:

    We just realized you guys are in the hound group which means some day, we may be competing against each other. We always hope for a hound to win!

  14. Jo Rhodes says:

    We’re mutts. Our mom loves us and thinks we should win because were the best of two or more worlds. Our mom is putting us on a t-shirt…We think Eko and Penny (that face!!!) should be on a t-shirt too. We’re not Ridgebacks but we are Rhodeses. Yay dogs!

  15. Oh Shoot!!!! We thought it started tomorrow…DUH!! And I did a bracket but I forgot! What a jerk I am. Will watch tomorrow night!

  16. Caroline says:

    Why don’t they Ridgies ever win? I mean, I know they don’t, but why?

    There is not a more stately dog on the planet.

    Pout. I am pouting.

  17. Of course I was rooting for the Chessie. Great line up of dogs as always.

  18. I didn’t even get to watch it this year, too much going on. ;(

  19. Your guys will always be ‘Best in Show’ no matter what those judges think. 🙂
