Dog handlers faced criticism during the 138th annual Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show, but not for how they handled their dogs. Folks on Twitter couldn't help but pick apart what they were wearing.

A handler makes the rounds with her Bouvier des Flandres during the best in herding competition.

Check out some of the tweets.

Another Twitter target last night was the winner of the non-sporting group -- Ally, the Standard poodle. While folks tend to get pretty ornery on social media when their favorite dogs lose, there seemed to be a larger than usual outcry when Ally won Best in Breed. Here she is competing (below).

Yikes. But Ally does have her fans, as evidenced by these tweets:

Can't get enough of the Westminster dog show? We've got you covered.


See photos from the first night of the competition and meet the winners of the toy, herding, non-sporting, and hound group.


See posh pups primp for prime time backstage at the Westminster dog show. It's not easy being beautiful.
