Meet Winky the bichon frise, Westminster’s breakout star

One of our favorite moments from yesterday's Masters Agility Championship Preliminaries, Winky the Bichon Frise! #WKCDogShow

A stone-cold wire fox took the top prize — but a platinum blond bombshell is the true breakout star of the 2019 Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show.

Winky the sassy bichon frise slayed the crowd Tuesday with her relaxed approach to the agility challenge. Now the internet is turning this four-legged beauty into a bona fide viral sensation.

While her fierce competitors raced through tunnels and over and around obstacles, Winky calmly walked the runway to the top of the A-frame — and struck a pose before sauntering back down.

And when working the doggie version of a catwalk, Winky stopped once again as if acknowledging the cheers of her newfound fans.

In the end, however, Winky’s losing time of 192 seconds included 92 “faults” and made her fashionably late.

Still, it’s worth noting that there were boos when esteemed judge Peter Green declared King, a 7-year-old wire fox terrier, America’s new top dog Tuesday night.

We’d like to think it’s because the audience was well aware of who America’s real top dog is.

@Boronia, I can’t open any of your vids - even those on the joke threads :( :(.  Any ideas??

 

O blast, what a nuisance LmO, can you right click on the video and when the URL appears click on that to highlight it then right click to copy then paste it into your browser's search-bar as a 'paste and go' then watch it there.

Try it with this NY Post link as it has Winky's agility video in the article   https://nypost.com/2019/02/13/meet-winky-the-bichon-frise-westminsters-breakout-star/

edited to add...do you have some sort of No Script program?

That is such a little dog thing to do .. standing on top of the A frame and the Dog walk to see how many people are admiring them .. and for the better view.   @persephone, I think she was a little overwhelmed at the start, but then she was "performing" , I think.
