Meet Grand Champion Foxcliffe Hickory Wind

She’s a Scottish Deerhound and she’s your new Best in Show at the 135th Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show. She goes by Hickory for short and in her spare time, she enjoys chasing rabbits and deers on her 50-acre Virginia farm.

“She went in there tonight and she showed like she’s never shown before,” her handler, Angela Lloyd, said. “She was solid and steady and even through all of the lights and cameras and the noise and spotlights, she came right through it.”

Also? Both the Labrador and Golden Retriever breeds have never won the top prize at the Westminster. They are the two most popular breeds in America.

Also, also? Best name for a dog ever. She sounds like an aristocratic British Native American.
