Big news from the Wesminster Kennel Club Show.

Friend of the PhilCast Julie Seaton's Australian Terrier named Mac won best of breed earlier today and will be on TV tonight!

Julie, a breeder from Muskego, Wisconsin, calls it a "dream of a lifetime".


This is pretty amazing stuff.

So tonight Mac will compete in the overall Terrier group and the winner of that group will be able to go for the ultimate prize, 'Best In Show'.

Mac was one of the dogs I featured in a report from the Wisconsin Kennel Club dog show a little less than a year ago.

There we are last year posing after Julie had told me about her plans to enter Mac in this year's Westminster show.

At the time she explained that Mac was something special and that indeed he may have a shot to make the "TV round" at the biggest dog show in the country.

And so he shall.

Tonight. Coverage begins on the USA channel at 7:00 central time.

Julie will be live on the PhilCast today right after the 3:30 news to talk about her big night tonight.

I first met Julie quite by accident.
Sandy and I had just rescued a little Cairn Terrier from the Wisconsin Humane Society about five years ago.

At just under a year old we were not sure if indeed that was her breed or perhaps she was an Aussie like Mac. It was hard to tell at the time and I wanted an expert's opinion. I found Julie on the internet. She was local and more than happy to invite us over with Gabby to take a look for herself.

 And to wrap it up, I had to post at least one picture of my little girl too.

She'll never win in Madison Square Garden, but she'll always be our champion.
