    Bill, a Leonberger dog owned by an Arlington family, competed in the Westminster Kennel Club.

Bill, a Leonberger dog owned by the Taft family of the Arlington area, competed Thursday in the Westminster Kennel Club dog show in New York City.

Bill, a champion in his breed, also works as a certified therapy dog in the county.

His owner, Lori Taft, volunteers so nursing home patients and others can share a little love with her dog.

Leonbergers are better known in Europe, where the breed is revered as a working class water rescue and service dog much like Saint Bernards, Newfoundlands and Great Pyrenees.
