Thanksgiving dog shows are typically viewed as a diversion from football, but this year there is a link between the two… because the top dog has an NFL connection!!!
Winston, a three-year-old French bulldog, took first place in the 21st Annual National Dog Show. Morgan Fox of the Los Angeles Chargers owns a portion of the dog.
Winston was top dog over hundreds of canine competitors. The show drew a huge audience — 20 million folks tuned in to NBC for the fun.
One of the judges, Vicki Seiler-Cushman, gushed over Winston … “He has a razzle-dazzle that says, ‘I am here to win tonight.'” She calls him the perfect pet.
French bulldogs are the Avis of dogs, ranking second only to Labradors in popularity.
Cooper, an English Toy Spaniel, Sloan, an Irish Water Spaniel, and River, a German Shepard are among Winston’s competitors.
Winston got some dog-appropriate treats for his win. Congrats!!!
