Meet Rumor, the adorable dog who just won the Westminster Dog Show
Posted on 15 February 2017
Cute dogs get us every time (EVERY. TIME), and dogs who are also performers in dog shows…they are just out of this world!
We recently heard that the Westminster Dog Show awarded ‘Best in Show’ to Rumor, who is a sweet-faced German Shepherd.
She’s 5 years old, and this win is especially exciting for her because — apart from dog shows of this calibre being notoriously difficult — it’s historic: She’s only the second German Shepherd to win this award since the event began in 1877! And she beat out over 2,800 other dogs to do so. Rumor might not know that, but WE know it, and we’re so freaking proud of this lady (who’s named after Adele’s “Rumor Has It”…FYI).
She definitely deserves some peace and quiet for motherhood, since she’s been competing in shows and winning titles for much of her life (except for a stint as a house pet in Wisconsin). This is actually her 104th career win…so yeah, time for some seriously needed R&R.
Clearly, Rumor has it. The X factor. Huge congrats, girl!
