Westminster 2018: Flynn the bichon frise wins best in show

Flynn the bichon frise beat out a darling pug, champion giant schnauzer, handsome border collie, sprightly Norfolk terrier, elegant borzoi and one cheeky Sussex spaniel to win best in show at the 2018 Westminster Kennel Club dog show in New York.

Even before competition in the sporting, working and terrier groups at Madison Square Garden Tuesday night, the fluffy white dog from Denver, Colorado, winner of the non-sporting group, had already emerged as a frontrunner for the 142nd rendition of Westminster, the Super Bowl of the dog world.

The 5-year-old Flynn, who rose to the top of a pool of 2,882 dogs in the prestigious show -- including 175 from New Jersey -- triumphed in group competition on Monday. He's just the second bichon frise -- "curly toy dog" in French -- in Westminster history to win best in show after the bichon JR became the first in the breed to win the title in 2001.

6. A dog or a giant marshmallow?

Oh, he's cute alright. But I prefer a dog from the working category.
