The Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show, now in its 136th year, isn't just about perfection and triumph. The nation's most prestigious dog event has plenty of quirkiness to go around, too. To wit, these spectacular photos from backstage at Madison Square Garden (and another from the days leading up to the show) showcase just how wild – in a good way! – things get at Westminster. So much fur! SO much grooming! Check them all out after the jump.
