NEW YORK -- Scissors, blow dryers, bobby pins -- they're as much a part of the Westminster dog show as commands, crates and treats.

There were 2,721 entries this year, though some missed out after getting stranded by the recent blizzard that hit the Northeast. The 137th Westminster features dogs in 187 breeds and varieties with a pair of newcomers, the treeing Walker coonhound and the Russell terrier.

The 2013 show concludes Tuesday night with the crowning of Best in Show.
