Flynn the Bichon Frisé wins Best in Show at Westminster

Add Westminster Dog Show as an interest to stay up to date on the latest Westminster Dog Show news, video, and analysis from ABC News. The white Bichon Frise, a clear crowd favourite, won Best in Show at the Westminster Dog Show.

"He's been a special dog and I've really enjoyed showing him", McFadden said after the win. "So, no, I did not know".

"I show dogs for a living and some of them you fall in love with, some you just you have a working relationship with", said McFadden, who said he thinks Flynn will retire after the win.

"It feels a little unreal", Fynn's expert handler Bill McFadden said.

The Westminster-winning team gets no prize money.

'I'd have to ask the owners, but I'm pretty sure I can drop the mic and say he's retired, ' McFadden told Fox Sports.

The win marked the second time a McFadden-trained dog took Best in Show honors.

Wednesday's schedule includes visits to the morning TV news shows, a steak lunch at Sardi's, a trip to the top of the Empire State Building, and he's been invited for a walk-on part at a Broadway hit "Kinky Boots".

"He has the dark round eyes that create the attractive expression of a bichon", she said.

She pointed out the Bichon Frise's "beautiful" expression and noted some of the features a breeder would look for like its straight back.

GCHP CH Belle Creek's All I Care About Is Love, a Bichon Frise known as "Flynn", owned by Patrina & Bruce Odette & Lindsay Van Keuren & Lorrie Carlton & L Letsche DVM. The day before, four dogs advanced to the final. "Then he gets "scissored" on for a while".
