Scottish deerhound Foxcliffe Hickory Wind has been named best in show at the 135th Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show.

"She's flying high," said Charles Grice, the husband of Vivian Grice, who went to New York with Boykin spaniels Allie and Woody. "She's enjoying it."

This is the first year that the breed was entered at the world-famous dog show.

In another first, the big winner Tuesday night was a Scottish deerhound. Five-year-old Foxcliffe Hickory Wind was named best in show, the first Scottish deerhound to get the nod.

Shamrock, just paws and consider a moment before you start dogging the AC and making catty remarks. (Sorry, that's the best I can do this morning). She's a pretty dog, isn't she. I used to dislike dog shows but the dogs seem to enjoy it and seem to be very well cared for so now I think they just good fun.
