"Implementing TikTok into our communications strategy this year is creating a whole new layer of fan involvement", says Gail Miller Bisher, director of communications for The Westminster Kennel Club.

Monday brought the first night of group competition at Madison Square Garden in NY, with winners in the toy, non-sporting, herding and hound groups.

Siba the Standard Poodle was named Best in Show at the 144th Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show, putting the Standard Poodle into elite company as one of only four breeds with five or more wins in the annual competition.

The kicker is they could be getting a top-five pick by virtue of being one of the worst teams in the league this season. Wiggins' first basket as a Warrior came with 3:52 left in the first quarter on a triple from the left corner.

The Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show is underway, but the final rounds air tonight, February 11, beginning at 7:30 p.m. EST on FS1. A standard last won in 1991. Siba beat out the boxer, the golden retriever, the Shetland sheepdog, the wire-haired fox terrier, the whippet, and the Havanese.

The sporting, terrier and working groups will compete on Tuesday, just before best in show.

To get to the final round of the competition, the dogs first had to compete against their own breeds and then win their group competition.

"Dogs were originally bred to do specific jobs, whether hunting, guarding, tracking, or companionship", the Westminster Kennel Club explains.

There was Bourbon, the second-ranked dog at Westminster and victor of several Best in Show events in the weeks leading into competition.

Adorned with black puffs and pompoms, the 3-year-old Siba was the absolute picture of what many see as the epitome of a show dog.
