A first-time sponsor of the Westminster show, Cunard is the only passenger line to carry pets across the Atlantic.
Rumor will have the opportunity to take her place in history among celebrity dogs who have sailed with Cunard including Elizabeth Taylor’s pampered pooches and Hollywood film star Rin-Tin-Tin.
Cunard was the sole travel company represented at the Feb. 11-14 Westminster show in New York. There, Cunard bellmen offered white-glove tea service to canine attendees at the line's photo booth.
Dogs (and humans) took pictures in front of an oversized backdrop of Queen Mary 2 and posted to #CunardatWKC.
Cunard offered Rumor and her family the invitation to sail at a presentation in Times Square on Wednesday.
