After two long days of breed judging at the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show, the best dogs came out to compete in their respective groups. The groups are terriers, toy dogs, working dogs, herding dogs, sporting dogs, non-sporting dogs, and hounds.

This year's Best-in-Show victor, picked from a pack of almost 3,000 competitors, will win a trophy, a media tour and bragging rights that are sure to boost breeding fees - all rewards for the dog's patience while enduring seemingly endless blow dryer blasts and tugs of combs and brushes.

The bichon frise, named Flynn, beat out almost 3,000 four-legged competitors to take home the top title.

"It's just magical", the dog's handler, Bill McFadden, told a reporter for Fox Sports.

All right, when we come back, we will see our final group before we get to Best in Show. His full champion's name includes All I Care About Is Love - the lyrics sung by character Billy Flynn in the popular show "Chicago".

"I'm pretty sure I can drop the mic and say he's retired", McFadden said of the dog, which is co-owned by Patrina and Bruce Odette, Lindsay Van Keuren, Lorrie Carlton and Larry Letsche.

Guided by expert handler Bill McFadden, Flynn beat out Ty the giant schnauzer, Biggie the pug, Bean the Sussex spaniel, Lucy the borzoi, Slick the border collie and Winston the Norfolk terrier. Ty won the working group after entering Westminster and was ranked No. 1 dog in the country.

"These dogs were bred to entertain people".

The famed JR was the only other bichon to win Westminster, in 2001.

The victor of the sporting group, Bean, a Sussex spaniel from Hampden, Massachusetts, endeared himself to the crowd with a well-timed trick. And Bean was a clear crowd favorite, the way he sat up straight on his hind legs and begged judges for the biggest treat in dogdom.

Last year, Rumor the German Shepard took home the "Best in Show".

A total of about 3,200 dogs competed during Westminster events this week. "There was no wasted time".
