Scottish Deerhound takes Westminster

 

     As soon as we saw Hickory walk into the best in show ring DH and I both said, “There’s the winner.”  We were right.  She was the perfect example of the Scottish deerhound standard.  Her movement was breath taking.

     Our hearts will always belong to the terrier group, especially Bull Terriers, but we know a good dog when we see one.  Hickory stood out a little above the rest of the competition.

     Congratulations to Hickory, her breeders, owners, and especially her brilliant handler.  Three cheers for the first time ever Westminster best in show win for a Scottish deerhound.

  1. As soon as i saw the dog show was on i just knew you would be watching glad u enjoyed it say hi to your DH for me & i hope u had a happy valentines day

    You sure do know us! Never miss the show on Tuesday–have to watch the terriers and best in show! We did have a happy day thank you.

  2. I also knew you’d be watching that show, lol.

    I was working when the dog show was on. However, I did record it and plan to watch it this weekend. Doesn’t bother me to know who the winnner is early.

    LOL! At least you knew ahead of time that my post for the day would be a spoiler on the show.

  3. I had the same reaction to the deerhound. She stood above all else literally and figuratively. She was indeed a “dearhound”.
    The mini-BT I just wanted to hug. I was already planning where to put her food dish.

    Yes, that mini-bull was adorabull!
