SALEM, Ore. (AP) - A 4-year-old silky terrier bred by an Oregon couple won best in breed at the Westminster Kennel Club’s 140th Annual Dog Show.

The Statesman Journal reports (https://stjr.nl/1LvgWUG ) that the silver-plated first-place trophy was awarded to the terrier named Allie on Monday, the first day of competition at Westminster.

Monmouth couple Carol Infranca and Lee Schlenker entered Allie in the competition alongside her brother, Flash, whom they own.

Infranca says Allie is accustomed to edging out her litter-mate, coming first even in birth. But Flash also earned a prize, winning a light blue and white rosette and placing fifth in the breed.

According to Infranca, Flash will participate in a few dog shows in California before returning to Oregon to live as a pet with his mom and daughter.
