'Diamond Jim' Wins Westminster Dog Show
RENÉE MONTAGNE, host:
Good morning. I'm Renee Montagne.

He won Best in Show at the Westminster Kennel Club last night, beating more than 2,600 other canine competitors. After celebrating, top dog Diamond Jim will enter retirement. But his handler says he's not going to be just a couch potato, the new champ is a therapy dog that's worked with Alzheimer patients.
