A border collie has just finished off a Slick night at Westminster.
Alert and agile, Slick won the herding group and earned a place in the best in show ring. This is the third straight year he's earned a ribbon at this event — next, Slick and handler Jamie Clute will try for the biggest prize in American dogdom.
Already, he's a winner in Clute's eyes.
“He's a once-in-a-lifetime dog,” Clute said, adding he's also playful: “He's a blast. He bites my feet and licks my ears.”
Now, it's on to the sporting, working and terrier groups Tuesday. And sometime around 11 p.m., we'll find out who becomes the nation's top dog.
