MM, a Lakeland terrier, won the terrier group title. MM, which has fur covering its forehead that looks as if it’s impending vision, is the fifth Lakeland terrier to win the group. MM stood out among 31 other terriers, the largest of any of the groups competing on Wednesday night.
The terrier group has dominated Westminster, with 47 Best in Show winners, the most of any other group. This is the first group victory by a Lakeland terrier in over 40 years, with the last win coming in 1980.
If MM wins Best in Show, it will be the second terrier win in the last four Westminster shows, and the first overall win by a Lakeland terrier since 1976.
