Meet Flynn, the Michigan Dog Who Won the Westminster Dog Show
He represented the mitten state well on Tuesday at the 142nd Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show.
This is Flynn. Yes, he looks like a stuffed animal, but he's as real as it gets. He's a Bichon Frise from Plymouth, whose parents are Lorrie Carlton and Dr. Lawrence Letsche. Dr. Letsche is a veterinarian at Remrock Farms Veterinary Service in Plymouth, as well as the owner of Belle Creek Bichon, a kennel.
And Flynn absolutely KILLED IT on Tuesday at the infamous Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show at Madison Square Garden in New York. There were over 2,000 entries in 200+ breeds to compete with.
Flynn beat out Ty, a giant schnauzer, Biggie the pug, Bean the Sussex spaniel, Lucy the Borzoi, Slick the border collie and Winston the Norfolk terrier.
I grew up with a Bichon named Rufus, and he was the sweetest dog ever. They're also hypo-allergenic, meaning that they don't shed and can be kept by people with allergies to pet dander. Congrats, Flynn!
