Hickory Brings Home The Hardware
Excitement reached record levels this week at The Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show - the ultimate beauty pageant for dogs - where Hickory, a 5-year-old female Scottish deerhound won Best in Show. Hickory has been ranked the Number One Scottish Deerhound for the last three years, but this was her first Best in Show appearance at The Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show.
The Like Me, They Really Like Me!
Like many of you, I was completely unfamiliar with this breed - which kind of resembles an Irish Wolfhound, right? It turns out this gangly breed is extremely sensitive, perhaps a bit insecure - so I'm thinking Hickory's big win will help make great strides for sensitive Scottish Deerhounds everywhere. As well, Scottish Deerhounds are apparently quite mellow, low-key and easygoing. Learn more about the interesting Scottish Deerhound dog breed at Animal Planet's Dogs 101!
