Flynn the Bichon Frise Wins Best in Show at Westminster

Would you rather hang out with your pet instead of your friends? A study conducted on 2,000 dog owners on behalf of the American Kennel Club suggests that dog owners do in fact ditch their friends to spend time with their furry family members.

Flynn the bichon frise has won best in show at the Westminster Kennel Club.

The choice was a surprise to most of the crowd at Madison Square Garden, with many fans falling silent when the white powder puff was picked.

Flynn beat out Ty the giant schnauzer, Biggie the pug, Bean the Sussex spaniel, Lucy the borzoi, Slick the border collie and Winston the Norfolk terrier. The giant schnauzer was the runner-up.

The 142nd Westminster event drew 2,882 entries in 202 breeds and varieties.
