The results are in from the 2013 National Dog Show presented by Purina. The winner of Best in Show is the American Fox Hound — a beautiful girl named Jewel. Handler Lisa Miller says afterward, “Nobody ever pays much attention to them. I wanted the world to stand up and take notice of this breed.” We don’t think that’ll be a problem after today.
But let’s see how we got there:
The Hound group saw the American Fox Hound being picked as Best in Group.
The Working group saw the judge actually picking Best in Group without even making a cut. The Standard Schnauzer was picked as Best in Group to advance to the finals.
The Toy group saw the Pekinese win Best in Group — this little fella has won 35 Best in Shows, so he’s quite the decorated show dog.
The Sporting group judge named Irish Water Spaniel, which is the top Sporting dog in the country right now.
The Herding group Best in Group went to the Bearded Collie, with his gorgeous white fluffy coat flying.
In the Terrier group, the top pick went to the Norfolk Terrier and in the Non-Sporting group, it was the Bishon Frise (the Buffalo Bill dog, heh).
What do you think, dog show fans? Did your favorites win Best in Group? How about Best in Show?
