The day of the Scottish deerhound has finally come at the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show.
Hickory, a 5-year-old female from Virginia, became the first of her breed to win Best in Show at Westminster, taking the top prize on the second and final day of the event at New York's Madison Square Garden on Tuesday.
The victory also is only the fifth at Westminster for a dog from the hound group. The Best in Show prize has been given for 104 years.
"It's just the thrill of a lifetime," Hickory's handler, Angela Lloyd, told USA Network, which showed the contest. "People who own, breed (and) show dogs dream of this day their whole entire lives, and here we are."FULL STORY
