LAKE STEVENS — The pony-tailed pooch from Lake Stevens didn’t win Best in Show, but she brought home a ribbon.
Hay Look Me Over placed second, known as “select” or next best, among the girls in her Biewer terrier class at the weekend Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show in New York. The 2-year-old long-haired terrier goes by Hayley for short.
“She did really well, she got a ribbon,” said Llyle Morgan, the dog’s publicity agent. “She likes to show. She’s clearly part of the breed standard in that she is playful and whimsical.”
The best male and female Biewer advanced to the toy round to compete with other small dogs. The next bests got a ribbon and tail-wagging rights.
Best in Show went to an even hairier toy, a Pekingese named Wasabi, who is the grandson of a previous winner. A whippet named Bourbon was runner-up.
Biewer (pronounced “beaver”) is a new class this year after being recognized by the American Kennel Club in January 2021.
When not strutting the ring, Hay Look Me Over lives with Lynn McKee, a longtime Lake Stevens breeder and groomer who started specializing in Biewers five years ago.
