Unattractive Dog Wins Best in Show

Hickory became the first Scottish deerhound to win Best in Show at Westminster. - 
***This is one of the most odd-looking, unattractive dogs we've ever seen. We watched the dog show and the Weimaraners and Dachshunds didn't come close to winning. However, a dog that looks like a dirty grey mop wins "Best in Show." What kind of "Show" were they looking for?
The NY Times Says:  The Labrador retriever is the most popular breed in the United States, according to American Kennel Club registration statistics. And yet, when set against a Westminster backdrop of elegant Afghans, jaded poodles, lumbering St. Bernards and impertinent Pomeranians, the humble Labrador retriever can get lost in the crowd. So perhaps it is not surprising that the Labrador retriever has never won Best in Show in Westminster’s 135 years. Other breeds better known as pets have also been overlooked. The golden retriever has never won, either, and the German shepherd and the pug have only won once apiece.

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
