Handler Bill McFadden and Flynn pose after winning. Recognized for its fluffy white coat and baby-doll face, with charcoal-colored eyes and nose, the bichon frise is known for its perky, good-natured disposition. The breed name is derived from the French phrase meaning "curly lap dog." The victor receives the coveted Best in Show trophy, a media tour and the lure of higher breeding fees.
