    Are Daily Maverick journalists too lazy, too uninformed or too uncaring to find out the names of the dogs displayed in the various pictures of the 147th Westminster Kennel Club Show ? It is really pathetic that in a publication such as the Daily Maverick the pictures of this event have titles such as “a dog performing” or “a cute dog”, really ? Surely when displaying photographs of an event of this nature the prime focus is on correctly naming the type of dogs participating in it. This sort of laziness is not something I ever expected from the Daily Maverick.
