Belvidere couple prepare dogs for Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show

Maud Earl's 1896 oil painting of a St. Bernard titled

"Burns has won 26 best in show titles at various dog shows, but never at Westminster, the New York Times reported".

Cheers filled Madison Square Garden as the short-legged, long-eared dog lumbered around the ring.

But everyone's saying the dachshund was robbed.

The grand prize will go to one of the "Best of" winners in seven canine groups: hounds, toys, non-sporting, herding, working, sporting and terrier. King, whose full competition name is GCHB CH Kingarthur Van Foliny Home, is the 15th wire fox terrier to be named best in show.

At 7 1/2, Bean is the grandson of the oldest Best in Show victor in Westminster history: Stump, the victor in 2009.

"I think one of the reasons some breeds don't make it to the end is that they just aren't the glamour breeds who are so flashy in the group", Walter Jones, a vice president of the Dachsund Club of America, told the Times.

Folks flocked to Twitter after the results were announced, with torches, pitchforks and keyboard voices raised for Burns. Filling out the final round, judged by Peter J. Green, was Baby Lars the Bouvier des Flandres, Colton the Schipperke, Bono the Havanese, Burns the Longhaired Dachshund, Bean the Sussex Spaniel, and Wilma the Boxer.


But don't worry, our little sausage doggo champ managed to get a little photobomb in. Colton was allowed to run around the ring, then was excused.

Neither he nor King will have much time to rest. This Wednesday celebration includes a visit to the top of the Empire State Building, lunch at beloved N.Y.C. restaurant Sardi's and several press appearances.

Officials said that while such a snafu is not unheard of in the dog show world, it is unprecedented at Westminster.

On Monday, Heart, a Labrador retriever from Columbia in Warren County, and Linda Brennan, her owner and trainer, won the Westminster Masters Obedience Championship for the fourth consecutive year. He had a playful spirit. Neither has a Havanese, schipperke or bouviers des Flandres.

Rangel has handled two other Westminster Best in Show winners including 2014's champion: Sky the Wire Fox Terrier.

"She does this because she loves me, not because she loves this", Bean said.

The best in show at the 143rd Westminster will be picked around 11 p.m. "But they don't have that sharp expression".
