"It's bittersweet because I enjoy being around him - he's lived with me for two years - but it's a pretty awesome way to stop", McFadden said. Fynn was the second bichon to win Westminster. Flynn is co-owned by Patrina and Bruce Odette, Lindsay Van Keuren, Lorrie Carlton and Larry Letsche.
Flynn, 5, came out on top over Ty the giant schnauzer, Biggie the pug, Bean the Sussex spaniel, Lucy the borzoi, Slick the border collie and Winston the Norfolk terrier in the final round, according to ESPN. His co-owner, Sandra Nordstrom, is from Ocean City and he is handled by Katie Bernardin of Chaplin, Connecticut.
Dogs in the Westminster show compete in a total of seven groups.
More than 200 dog breeds and varieties were represented in the two-day event, joining the contest from all 50 US states and 16 other countries, including Canada, Mexico, Japan, Russia, Australia and China, the Westminster Kennel Club said in a statement. The groups are terriers, toy dogs, working dogs, herding dogs, sporting dogs, non-sporting dogs, and hounds.

It's also got it where it counts, with the Performance Model rocking an inline six-cylinder engine. The coupé-like SUV shares a lot in terms of powertrain, chassis and equipment with the X3 SUV.
Wife of Flynn's trainer Bill McFadden, Taffe McFadden, explained how they get the pooch ready for a show by shampooing and conditioning his coat and adding some hairspray to keep his fur in place.
His full name is Belle Creek's All I Care About is Love, and this champion from the nonsporting group delivered a few minutes before it became Valentine's Day.
Rumor, a German shepherd and 2017 Best in Show victor, poses for photographers during a trip to One World Trade Centre in NY previous year. In 2016, C.J., a German Shorthaired Pointer, won the top prize and the year before that, Miss P the Beagle was "Best In Show".
That meant there was a long wait between the victory in the group and the Best in Show competition.
The Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show is really for people of all ages, and a lot of times it starts at a young age.
