Bichon Frise Wins Applause At Westminster, And Isn't That The Point?

"Winky" thought he was there to get applause, not win a race, and he won the applause meter at Westminster by a mile. (open thread)

Too funny! Winky the Bichon Frise was supposed to go through the obstacle course under timed conditions, but he kept stopping to receive applause from the audience!

"Winky's time to beat: 40 seconds. Winky's actual time: 100 seconds with 92 errors. ...While the course is very impressive when done by a dog who seems to actually care, I actually found Winky's "window-shopping at the mall" pace to be the most inspiring."
