Terrier 'Sky' Wins Westminster Dog Show
In order to reach the pinnacle of show dogs, Sky had to beat out a Cardigan Welsh corgi, a Portuguese water dog, a bloodhound, a miniature pinscher and a standard poodle, who was the runner up at the 138th Westminster Kennel Club dog show, reported USA Today.
Sky was an underdog coming into the competition, by the simple fact that she is a terrier and not a toy breed. For the last couple of years only toy breeds have one the Westminster Best in Show. Last year, an Affenpinscher named Banana Joe won the top honor, while the 2012 title went to Malachy the Pekingese.
Sky, who has ginger coloring and hails from Malibu, Calif., was ranked as American’s No. 1 show dog in 2013. She’s won an impressive total of 129 best-in-show titles throughout her short, but successful career. In order to win the Westminster Best in Show, Sky had to prove herself more worthy that 2,845 dogs.
