Flynn the Bichon Frise Wins Best in Show at Westminster

Flynn the bichon frise was crowned as America’s top dog Tuesday night at the Westminster Kennel Club dog show in New York. The 5-year-old pooch beat out six other finalists to win Best in Show, apparently impressing judges with his powder-puff fur and light-footed prance. “It feels a little unreal,” Flynn’s handler, Bill McFadden, said after the event. “I came in expecting nothing and just hoping for a good performance and I think I got it,” he said. A total of 2,882 entries competed in the 142nd Westminster event, with 202 breeds and varieties. Flynn competed against six other finalists, including Biggie the pug, Bean the Sussex spaniel, Slick the border collie, Winston the Norfolk terrier, Lucy the borzoi, and Ty the giant schnauzer, who was the runner-up.
