Westminster Dog Show 2018: And the
winner is ... Flynn the bichon

Fox News, by Gregg Re

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 2/14/2018 1:13:27 AM

Flynn the bichon frise won best in show at the 142nd Westminster Kennel Club dog show on Tuesday night, topping other contenders like Slick the border collie and a pug named Biggie. The choice was a surprise to most of the crowd at Madison Square Garden, with many fans falling silent when the 5-year-old white powder puff was picked. Flynn also beat out Ty the giant schnauzer, Bean the Sussex spaniel, Lucy the borzoi, and Winston the Norfolk terrier. Bill McFadden, the dog´s handler, began showing the breed at the competition in 1991, the New York Times reported. "It feels a little unreal," McFadden said.

Found a great little Norfolk Terrier mix at our local SPCA 10 years ago. Miss Lili owned us for a good 8 years. The greatest dog ever.

Of course, I must now go back and watch "Best In Show" yet again. Fred Williard´s ´commentary´ during the show is a scream.

"We have you down for two queens."

Every year I faithfully watch the Westminster-and pick at least 3 dogs that I really want-and then I look at my 3 cats, and know that´s not happening, life is to short to bring on the havoc that would cause!

The bichon was a pretty ho-hum choice.

I was hoping for Bean, although he was not up to Stump’s level when it came to Sussex Spaniel charm. Would also have liked to see that great Border Collie win.

Our Bichon looks nothing like the one that won. We (mainly my wife) realized early on that long hair requires a lot of time, work and expense to maintain. So, we have the dog groomed with a close cut (except ears and tail) about every 4-6 weeks. Even at that, the ears, especially, still require a lot of work to prevent knots. I can´t imagine how much work it takes to produce this winner. Our dog is very much my wife´s dog - until she picks up the comb. Then, the dog seems anxious to come to me to get away from that comb.

The tall man who squired Flynn the Bichon around had his comb going so frequently that you began to think Flynn could never be seen without either his handler nor his comb.

Stylized dogs do nothing for me. (And what about the pink stains running down from his eyes?)

Bean or the Border Collie - real dogs. I’ve never seen such a well-show-trained Border Collie These dogs are amazing in the field. This one was also a winner at standing still without having to be restrained by the handler. The handler was able to stand aside and let the dog stand alone … I loved that.

North Dakota Republican Rep. Kevin Cramer announced Friday plans to run for Senate against Democratic incumbent Heidi Heitkamp.The decision is sure to come as a relief to Washington Republicans who had been pressuring him to reconsider his decision last month to stay put in the House.With Democrats fighting hard to seize control of the House this fall, Republicans are determined to hold onto their narrow majority in the Senate, now at 51-49. Heitkamp, a Democrat in a deep-red state that went overwhelmingly for President Trump in 2016, is thought to be one of the most-vulnerable senators this cycle. But until

At the direction of Bill de Blasio’s administration, New York City public school principals have begun filling vacancies with teachers languishing on the city’s Absent Teacher Reserve. Everyone knows that this decision is lousy for city kids, especially those most in need of top instructors. In hindsight, though, it was also inevitable: the rules that govern public schools are designed to look out for the interests of adults, not children.The ATR is an example of what happens when commonsense reforms run up against an inflexible system. Former mayor Michael Bloomberg gave principals power to hire the teachers they thought best,

The indictment of 13 Russians and three Russian companies for allegedly interfering in the 2016 presidential election shows that former President Obama´s administration "lost sight of Russia," according to Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel. Moscow targeted the U.S. presidential election with "information warfare" intended to sow discord among Americans, according to the indictment announced Friday by the Justice Department.McDaniel noted that Obama famously mocked Mitt Romney during a 2012 presidential debate on foreign policy after Romney said Russia is the greatest geopolitical threat to the U.S. "Obama took his eye off the ball.

CNN was very upset that Republicans were not coming on their programming in the wake of the school shooting tragedy this week.

Nineteen-year-old Nikolas Cruz -- who mowed down Parkland, Florida, high school students and teachers, killing 17 and wounding many others -- had been thrown out of the same school for threatening his classmates. He had been bragging to them about having a personal armory and implying he would use it, justifiably frightening them. Subsequently he posted a photo of that armory, including assault weaponry, on Instagram as well as a photo of a target riddled with bullet holes with the recommendation to try it as "group therapy."

Revelations that the FBI had been warned about Florida high school shooter Nikolaus Cruz fit an all-too-familiar pattern, in which apparent law enforcement errors have preceded mass murders. The FBI was warned about Cruz after he posted on YouTube saying he was going to become a “professional school shooter.” The agency said they couldn’t identify the user who made the threat, despite Cruz posting under his own name. Five months later, Cruz pulled the fire alarm at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School and began shooting his former classmates with his AR-15. Other mass shooters and terrorists were similarly on the FBI’s radar
