Pure Michigan: Michigan Dog Wins Westminster!

The Westiminster Kennel Club Dog Show is the Olympics of the dog world and Michigan Scottie, Sadie walked off with the top prize, the gold medal, Best in Show!

A four-year-old Scottish terrier from Michigan has been named Best in Show at the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show. The dog named Sadie is owned by Amelia and Dan Musser of Mackinac Island.
Sadie's official name with the American Kennel Club is Roundtown Mercedes of Maryscot.

If you are not from Michigan, Mackinac Island is truly a magical place where motorized vehicle have banned for more than a century and it remains a charming living Victorian community.

It is home to a pre-Revolutionary fort, Fort Mackinac built in 1780.

And Mackinaw Island is also home to the world famous Grand Hotel built in 1887 and boasts the longest Front Porch in the world

I recently was up on Mackinac Island and I can personally testify of the beauty and charm of the island and the magnificent Grand Hotel (picture taken on the porch of the Grand Hotel, Sept. 2009)

Well it just so happens that the owners of the Grand Hotel, are Amelia and Dan Musser!

Does that mean we may get a glimpse of Sadie lounging on the porch of the Grand Hotel?
Let's hope so!

Congratulations Sadie, to the Musser's and Michigan
