Oh I have seen this already. Wonderful! I did a little bit of agility with Pepe who disgraced himself one session by weeing in the tunnel. I had to disinfect!

Winky is having her "15 minutes of fame," which is astounding her owner, Joanne Ouchterlony; I am friends with her on FB.

Joanne says that of all her dogs, Winky (full call name Periwinkle) is the one who has no interest in humans. 

Inside Edition came to their home for an interview.  Winky was mentioned on The Tonight Show withe Jimmy Fallon, on Good Morning America, Huffington Post.com, Elle.com, FTW.USAToday.com, lohud.com, deadspin.com.

lohud is their local newspaper, and they called the story:  Winky - Chill Dog - Show Phenomenon   I love that!

Karen Berkes Graeber is her breeder, equally proud.

Joanne felt it necessary to pull up of photo of Winky actually RUNNING at Westminster last year, lol.

A fluffy white dog felt no urgency about completing the agility course but won over the crowd anyway.

    One of our favorite moments from yesterday's Masters Agility Championship Preliminaries, Winky the Bichon Frise! #WKCDogShow pic.twitter.com/p55IxGC5iH

Rudy, the little bulldog that could, gained a legion of fans at the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show as he attacked the course in the agility competition on Sunday.

But a fluffier, less determined dog named Winky also grabbed the spotlight with a decidedly different approach to the apparatus. The bichon frise’s complete lack of urgency may have lost the competition, but it won the hearts of the crowd and people who viewed the run ? er, stroll ? through the tunnels and over the obstacles.

When Winky reached the top of the A-frame, it seemed like the perfect time to stop and take a look around. And when crossing the dog walk, the bichon stopped again to acknowledge the cheers of the crowd.

Winky’s final time of 192 seconds, which included 92 faults, was nowhere near Rudy’s time of 51.63 or winner Verb’s time of 32.05.

But Winky’s fan club may rival Rudy’s.

    Winky is my spirit animal...she completed the course, posed for her fans all while enjoying it...she’s won my heart my heart for sure!!!

If you order supplies and ESPECIALLY if you order pet medications from Foster & Smith, you need to make other arrangements. Closing as of Feb 12. Sad, this was a really superb company. PetCo bought it in 2015. 

This was a great company, and the first one (that I knew of) to obtain VIIP certification for their pharmacy. I spent $$$ on meds for my Willy they always had the best prices for the meds he needed for the 6 years he lived with me.

Thank you Sandie and Susie
It is hard - there is this empty space in our living room just silent. My poor husband is ok as long as he doesn’t think about her but sometimes is so sad. She was part of our lives for so long. We collect her ashes this week and that will be fraught. But I am resolved that in the Spring we will take them along with Pepe and Titch’s ashes which we still have, over to the west coast of Dumfries and Galloway and release them there in a much loved spot.
Ah me, thanks again
Pam x

Oh my, I am so sorry for your loss, Pam.  Poppy was a dear girl and yes, we 'oldies' on here do remember everyone!  It is so hard losing a family member.
