Last year's Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show winner Hickory was the first of her breed, the Scottish deerhound, to win the coveted best in show prize. She's among quite a number of first-timers in the show's 105-year history who will (hopefully!) pave the way for more of their kind. We think that every breed deserves a prize for being cute and unique and we envy the group of judges who ultimately must select the one winner! Who do you think will be top dog in next week's 2012 Westminster?
