The dogs of Westminster

Many dog breeds recognized by the Westminster Kennel Club are named for the work they were bred to do, such as pointers, retrievers and shepherds. But some dog breeds are not as obvious. <a href='http://www.westminsterkennelclub.org/breedinformation/herding/pembrok.html' target='_blank'>Pembroke Welsh Corgis</a>, for example, are well-known as the foxy, playful pet of Queen Elizabeth. No taller than 2 feet, this dog was originally bred to herd and drive cattle.
