Scottie Takes the Crown at Westminster

Ad Feedback

The Westminster Kennel Club Championship is the Super Bowl of the dog world and the top prize -- Best in Show.

This year's crown goes to a Scottish terrier named Sadie. Sadie was the favorite going into the show. She also won two other awards making her the first Triple Crown winner in the show's history.

"She was perfect," said Sadie's handler, Gabriel Rangel. "I couldn't ask for anything more."

The winning Scottie will spend the next week making the rounds on TV talk-shows.

"She likes to watch TV," Rangel said. "We have dinner together at the hotel and watch Animal Planet."

Terriers are the show's most winning breed. Sadie became the eighth Scottie to win at Westminster, becoming the record 45th terrier to win in a show that began in 1877.

This was Sadie's third try at Westminster. Two years ago, the little dog was spooked by strange sounds from the crowd. Last February she had a potty accident on the green carpet.

A total of 2,500 dogs entered this years competition, from 173 breeds and varieties.
