NEW YORK CITY (WCCO) — It’s a big night for Sally Sweatt of Minneapolis, but a bigger night for her Scottish deerhound.

The dog she co-owns was named best of the hound group on Monday night at the annual Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show in New York City. That means Tuesday night she’ll compete for Best in Show.

Her dog is a 5-year-old female named Foxcliffe Hickory Wind. Sweatt, 65, said it’s a stressful time but she’s happy Hickory has made it this far.
