Best in show at Westminster: Buddy Holly, a petit basset griffon Vendéen

(SOUNDBITE OF SONG, "RAVE ON")

BUDDY HOLLY: (Singing) Well the little things you say and do...

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep.

Buddy Holly made history. The dog named after the rock 'n' roll legend is - give me a second here - a petit basset griffon Vendeen. That's PBGV for short. And Buddy Holly is the first PBGV to win the best in show at Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show. Winston the Frenchie was a crowd favorite and was expected to come out as top dog, but Buddy prevailed. He's a rock star.
