1. Backstage at the Westminster Dog Show…
2. There were a ton of cute dogs.
5. But one stood out…
6. Swagger, the Sheepdog.
And he was totally chill about the attention.
7. Everybody wanted to ask Swagger’s handler questions.
And Swag’s handler was really cool. He took time to chat with everyone (and subtly show off his tattoos).
8. And Parker Posey fell in love with him.
10. Then it was showtime.
12. And the crowd went wild!
14. People in the stands kept yelling “Give it to the sheepdog.”
15. “Give it to the big guy!”
16. But when the judging concluded…
17. Swagger was awarded 2nd Place.
19. Oh well…
20. We still love you.
Can I call you Big Swag?
