Sadie the the Scottish Terrier who won the 2010 Westminster dog show will be on hand as Nestle Purina unveils its new, 84,000-square-foot Purina Event Center this Wednesday in Missouri. She and five other Westminster “Best in Show” winners will alleat Purina Pro Plan dog food.
St. Louis-based Nestle Purina began building the $10 million arena in April 2009. It’s located in Gray Summit, about 40 miles west of St. Louis.
Sadie and the other champs — 2009 winner Stump the Sussex spaniel, 2008 winner Uno the beagle, 2007 winner James the English springer spaniel, 2006 winner Rufus the colored bull terrier, and 2001 winner J.R. the bichon frise — should be aware that they might be the target of vehement Nestle boycotters.
