Brussels griffon "Lincoln" wins Westminster's toy group
Ch. Cilleine Masquerade, a popular pick to win best in show, has won Westminster's ultra-competitive toy group, beating out Taser the affenpinscher. Lincoln, as he's known for short, has been on many Westminster watchers' short lists of "dogs to watch" at this year's show.
Lincoln is a smooth-coated Brussels griffon, perhaps less familiar to many than the rough-coated variety, one of which was featured prominently in the film "As Good as It Gets." He's 4 years old and owned by the Gregory and Jahlelka families.
Rounding out the top four toy dogs were a pug named Ch. Tupelo Shoboat Tu China Tu, a Pekingese named Ch. Pequest Match Point and a pomeranian named Ch. Velocity's Shake Ur Bon Bon.
