Now that these new breeds are in, the Westminster Kennel Club is REALLY going to be a party!

The treeing walker coonhound and russell terrier are the next contestants in the Price is Right the Westminster Dog Show, after the WKC accepted the breeds as new competitors.

While we have no idea what treeing is (it's when dogs force animals up trees to be shot by hunters…sad), we think the treeing walker coonhound (top) and the russell terrier (bottom) are excellent choices.

The treeing walker coonhound is described as intelligent, confident and sociable by the WKC, and the russell terrier is considered to be the ultimate working terrier.

Welcome to the big leagues, boy and girl doggies!
