A pet who lives with former Cincinnati Reds catcher Ryan Hanigan won a ribbon at the Westminster Kennel Club dog show.
Of the 44 Australian shepherds entered, Hanigan's Copperridge What's Your Dream was picked as the best of its breed.
"It's incredible that she went from my No. 1 bed buddy to best of breed at Westminster!!!'' Hanigan wrote in a text message to The Associated Press.
Hanigan was traded by the Reds to the Tampa Bay Rays in December.
