The Westminster Dog Show concluded yesterday, with Miss P., a 15-inch beagle from Canada, taking home the grand prize for Best in Show — beating out the crowd favorite, Matisse, a Portuguese water dog who also happens to be related to the president’s dog. Over the course of the two-day, high-stakes competition, photographer Chris Sorensen was behind the scenes, documenting the beautification process of the prizewinning canines, from doggie manicures to Shih Tzu ponytails to an English sheepdog named Swagger getting a blowout. Click through the slideshow for a look at these and more award-winning dogs with big personalities and regimented beauty routines.
