A West Highland Terrier named Geordie Girl won "Best in Show" at the 2016 Crufts dog show on March 13.

More than 22,000 dogs took part in the four-day competition at the National Exhibition Centre (NEC) in Birmingham, central England – the 125th year of the show.

"To win 'Best in Show', I don't think you can find the words to describe it, it's just unreal," said Marie Burns, the owner of Geordie Girl, also known as Devon.

"I mean I think it's every dog show exhibitor's dream to be standing here, and you just don't think it's ever going to happen to you, and I don't think it will sink it until I watch it on TV." – Reuters
