Why do dog shows make me cry?

This is so stupid, but I am wondering if I am just a sappy freak or if this happens to other people as well.
As I was flipping through the channels tonight, I happened upon a dog show. I watched for about 10 minutes, and as the winners were named, I started to laugh and get seriously teary. The descriptions of the dogs get to me ("...lhasas were originally bred for rat-catching and indoor defense in Tibetian temples...") What is with this?!
I am not particularly overemotional, or known for crying at movies or during sad shows. I am not really thinking the dogs are being mistreated or that the show is inherently cruel, but I cannot figure out why a dog show would make me cry.
Anyone else have this kind of problem? Maybe not with dog shows? Am I just a wacko?
