Dog drama at Westminster: Schipperke ruled out for top prize

012919AKC21TB

Maybe they shouldn't have been: the outcome marked the 15th time a wire fox captured the highest prize at the country's most prestigious dog show, more than any other breed by a wide margin.

Next up is the terrier group.

Rangel twice previously guided terriers to best in show at Westminster - Sadie the Scottie in 2010 and Sky the wire fox in 2014. To celebrate her win, P!nk leapt into her trainer's arms for a hug.

"After you win this magnificent show there's really nothing else to win". "He should be running around in some grass field".

Kent and Gwen Meyer, who own Meyer's Tails Up Farm in Belvidere, are heading to Westminster with two top-winning show dogs.

Bono the Havanese won second place.

A Havanese named Bono came in second among the more than 2,800 dogs who entered here. All dogs in the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show have to be on display for the whole show, with only a few minor exceptions, so there will be plenty of dogs to cover during the two nights of 4K broadcast.

But Colton the schipperke was ruled ineligible for best in show after winning the non-sporting group on Monday.

California Governor Newsom pulls plug on LA-SF high-speed train
He acknowledged critics would ding this move as a "train to nowhere, but I think that's wrong and I think that's offensive". Gavin Newsom is creating a new commission on homelessness and housing to address one of California's most hard problems.

Later, as the show continued, Christa Cook, Colton's handler, posted about the development on Facebook. In 1998, Puig showed the dog's great-grandfather, who was the first and only long-haired dachshund to win the hound group, until Burns matched his feat. He's also done well at the largest dog show in the world, Crufts in England.

A day after earning a coveted spot in the final ring of seven, spirited Colton the schipperke was ruled ineligible for best in show.

Dog drama at the Westminster Kennel Club ...

Burns the Dachsund won for the hound group.

"You can't train a dog for what goes on in the floor of the Garden", said McFadden of Acampo, California, whose husband Bill McFadden past year showed Flynn, the bichon frise who took home the 2018 Best in Show prize.

Packed with personality, Burns had all the qualities of a Westminster champion. Brennan and Heart impressed the judge with a freestyle routine inspired by the 1956 film "The Red Balloon", which saw the dog tugging a red balloon at Brennan's command.

Winky, the bichon frise, grabbed the audience's and the Internet's attention as she took her time during the agility championship preliminary competition on Sunday.
