Rookie sheepdog goes into ring at Westminster

 

Four Icelandic Sheepdogs were expected to compete at Westminster today, the first time ever for the breed. But one got sick and another Kol, who we first met last week on Vashon Island, Wash., ran into trouble with the airline. So it came down to only two, and one of them was Rassa, Kols housemate. Rassas owner, Donna McDermott, watched from the stands while her handler and good friend Tammie Wilcox handled Rassa in the ring.  Watch the viceo below to see what happened and be sure to check back for our ongoing coverage of the furry underbelly of Westminster Dog Show.

Rassa, a rookie Icelandic Sheepdog and her owner Donna McDermott head to the ring at Westminster. See if they win best in breed.
