Rufus, a Colored Bull Terrier, won Best in Show at the Westminster Kennel Club Show.

Rufus beat out a Rottweiler (Working Group), a Pug (Toy), a Dalmatian (Non-sporting), a Golden Retriever (Sporting), a Scottish Deerhound (Hound), and an Old English Sheepdog (Herding).

It's the first win ever for a Colored Bull Terrier, ending a curse put on the breed by Frank Chance who was upset at one for attacking his cat back in 1909.

No working, no toying, no sporting, no herding, no hounding -- those damn terriers are all show.

According to the NY Times, a terrier has taken the top prize at Westminster 43 times, which is way more than any other breed.
Oddly, the most popular breeds are usually snubbed.

But Rufus is cool. Cool name. Cool face. He should be rolling over in endorsement deals today.

This would never happen if the Westminster Kennel Club show had a salary cap.

I'd enter my mutt-Terrier mix but I don't know if you get points for peeing on the carpet.

As I type this, I'm printing "Break Up The Terriers!" and "Fight Terrerism!" t-shirts for the next Westminster Kennel Club.
I'll be the beagle-owner brave enough to end their reign of terrier.
