America has a new top dog! Eira the Wire Fox Terrier won Best in Breed and Best in Show at the National Dog Show held in Philadelphia. Her show name is Steele Your Heart. She adds Champion and Grand Champion to her title. Eire means snow in Welsh. Next up is Westminster in February. If she wins, she'll be only the 3rd dog ever to win both championships in the same season.
