The COVID-19 pandemic has derailed another major sporting event – and this one’s for the dogs.

The Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show has been postponed due to rising COVID cases, and will be held later this year.

The annual show is typically held at Madison Square Garden, but last year was moved to the Lyndhurst mansion and held without spectators. The show had been scheduled for Jan. 24-26.

A new date has not yet been announced.
