From the 42nd annual Westminster chem dog club show, anyone named best in show and here he is. Come on out, Lara, with the gold medal dog. Yes. Look at Flynn. Hello. Come on, buddy. Come on, buddy. Come on up. Good boy. So soft. Oh, my gosh. It's like a living snowball, everybody. Oh. Show, Flynn, what do we think? Perfect 10s? Got to give it up for these two his handler bill Mcfadden and Gail Miller Bisher. Thanks for bringing Mr. Flynn to us. So exciting. So how does it feel for you, bill, it's been quite a journey for this fellow. I understand this might be his last show. It's got to be all the more sweet. It's bittersweet because I enjoy being around him. He's lived with me for two years but that's a pretty awesome way to stop. Where does he go? He'll go back to his breeder/owner in Michigan.

There are almost 3,000 dogs compete at the Westminster dog show. What do they do after? Are they Normal pets. Absolutely. And actually Flynn as bill said is retiring. So he's going to go home to Michigan and roll in the snow and sit on the sofa with his other bichon friends and cat friends. He wants to go right to George's apartment. I mean, I'm looking at Flynn and thinking I need to grow an afro and grow my beard out. Why not. Yeah. There you go. So beautiful. We obviously -- we love Flynn. I tried to adopt him four times. So far no luck. So we have one more award for him. This is the "Gma" top dog award. I don't know if he'll -- we love
