Here's What Good Dogs Snack On

The Westminster Dog Show is this week, and if you're not watching, you're missing out on fun facts like this:

Other favorite snacks of the canine elite include potato chips, pizza and Cheetos.

Best in Show will be crowned Tuesday night at Madison Square Garden, so the contestants are probably carbo-loading as we speak.

Speaking of dogs: If you've ever tried to take a selfie with your dog, you know it can be a struggle.

Speaking of SI Swimsuit...

It's almost time.

Two Decades of Winning

As a lifetime Bullets/Wizards fan, all I can say is, sigh.

This Was Pretty Fancy

Speaking of the Wizards, though...they're on fire right now.

Bryce Harper is a Cowboys Fan

Nats fans are not pleased, to say the least.
