When a dog’s name is “Fanfare”, it is expected to make a big impression at dog shows.

Fanfare – or Fannie, for short – won the title of Best of Variety this weekend at the 145th Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show, held at historic Lyndhurst Castle in Tarrytown, New York. After winning the award, Fannie returned to her home in Boerne, Texas, just north of SA.

Fannie is a six year old raw blue merle collie, owned and bred by the husband and wife team, Mr. Frank Trevino and Dr. April Hain Trevino de Boerne. She was crowned “Best in Variety Rough Collie” after a weekend of intense dog competition.

The award-winning puppy enjoys a quiet Texas Hill Country lifestyle, according to a statement, and is known to patrol the family’s peach orchard, picking and playing with the peaches before the squirrels have a chance.

The winner of this year’s prestigious Best in Show award was Wasabi, the smoosh-faced Pekingese, a three-year descendant of former Best in Show winner Malachy, who won the Best in Show award at the 2012 Westminster Dog Show.
