Best In Show at the 115th Crufts Dog Show was the Australian Shepherd,
Caitland Isle Take a Chance, owned by Nancy Resetar of Royal Oaks, California, in the US.
She said: "It's the best moment in my life. I'm so proud of him."

Winning handler Larry Fenner said: "I am overwhelmed. The greatest moment of my life
was the birth of my daughter, this is second best. I did not expect it.

"The dog is awesome, the greatest I have ever shown in my life.
I probably won't have another one like him."

The reserve Best in Show dog, in second place,
was Wire Fox Terrier El-Rays Snowtaire Iceni Payback. The dog, known as Payback,
is owned by Barbara Becker and Phil Davies, of Upper Killay, Swansea.

Best in Show judge Brenda Banbury said: "The thing that we all have to think about when we are judging dogs is that there are many aspects to look at. "The first thing is how closely does the dog or bitch relate to the standard.
"We then look at how good is its overall conformation, its muscles, its coat and then the temperament of the dog. And then there is this star quality."
