To review: the competitors for Best in Show tonight are:
Hound Group: Borzoi “Lucy”
Toy Group: Pug “Biggie”
Non-Sporting Group: Bichon Frise “Flynn”
Herding Group: Border Collie “Slick”
Sporting Group: Sussex Spaniel “Bean”
Working Group: Giant Schnauzer “Ty”
Terrier Group:. Norfolk “Winston”
My pick? I’m torn between the sentimental favorite, the Pug Biggie, who is being shown in place of his uncle who died last summer, and the posing Sussex Spaniel Bean, who stands up on his hind feet for a sliver of liver every time he gets a chance.
But if I were a gambler, I’d bet on the Borzoi.
