Westminster: Scottish Deerhound takes hounds group

The legs have it. P’shaw.

On Monday night, only plaids and kilts were missing. A 7-year-old Scottish deerhound named Tiger Woods — his owner is a huge golfer — won the hound group, then a Scottish terrier took the terrier group.

“Maybe I ought to have a Scotch,” said Gabriel Rangel, the terrier’s handler.

Rangel came with his own good-luck charm. He led Sadie around the ring with the same leash that guided a Scottish terrier called Bingo to the 1967 best in show prize at Madison Square Garden.

“Worked pretty well, didn’t it?” owner Amelia Musser said. “I think we’ll keep using it.”
