National Dog Show 2010: Clooney the Irish Setter is Best in Show

best-in-show.jpgThe results are in! This Thanksgiving's Purina National Dog Show Best in Show winner is Clooney, the three-year-old Irish Setter handled by Peter Kubacz.

"He's a dog that I found, he is not a dog that I bred," Kubacz says. "I've been showing him for the past two months. He's a rollicking personality, totally attentive, he just loves to be shown."

"He loves the attention; he loves people; he loves being in the ring and being around all the people and everyone fussing over him. He is a great show dog in that regard," the handler continues. Clooney also lives with Kubacz, though he's got other owners. "He sleeps on my bed or next to my bed, depending on who gets there first. He loves to play fetch. He's into all the toys we have. Our other dogs really aren't toy dogs, but he just goes through all the little places in the house where we stash toys. He's a very entertaining dog."
