In the Washington Post story, the owner said he had given Flynn two hours of scissoring and bathing the night before. "He likes being groomed," said the owner. I would think that a dog in such a competition would have to love being groomed!

Two hours of scissoring and bathing.....On Good morning America Bill McFadden, his handler said when Flynn is being shown he gets 2 to 3 baths a day!!  Love that Flynn won, but worry that with the increase in popularity of the breed, people are not going to realize what a commitment to grooming and care these little ones need.

And Flynn is a great grandson to JR who won in 2001.

He is very beautiful that is for sure and must have shown brilliantly.  I often watch Crufts and biased though I am, the Bichons never do very well in best of breed.  (And as for the Bolognese - not a chance.  Just the wrong sort of dog/temperament.)

What I loved best was an interview I heard on the radio with the judge wherein she said she chose Flynn for his personality- that he seemed to being thinking “hey, lady, come over here!” every time she looked at him. Way to be a bichon!
