Scottish Deerhound Hickory, 'The 135th Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show'For the first time in its 135 year history, the 'Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show' (Tue., 8PM on USA) awarded the coveted Best in Show to Hickory, a Scottish Deerhound. She was a beautiful and well-mannered representative of her breed.

"For a lot of people at home, this is probably their first real good look at this breed," the announcers said.

It's certainly not a commonly seen breed in the United States.

'The Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show' has become big business on television in recent years, and the opportunity to see breeds like this has to be one of its biggest draws. Sure, the 'Puppy Bowl' is adorable on Super Bowl Sunday, but the 'Dog Show' is a great opportunity to essentially window shop the best breeds in the world.

Granted, we're talking some pretty expensive animals, but it is amazing to see their diversity in body shape, personality and size. Hickory is certainly a distinctive looking dog, and now it's the 2011 Westminster Best in Show recipient.
