The Oneida Daily Dispatch (Oneida, NY) - - Localnews -

NEWYORK » Amer­ica’s new top dog is set to be­come best in a Broad­way show.

Flynn the bi­chon frise is tak­ing quite a vic­tory lap on Valen­tine’s Day, hours af­ter he won the West­min­ster Ken­nel Club dog show at Madi­son Square Gar­den.

The white pow­der puff ’s tour of the town is set to fin­ish Wed­nes­day night with a walk-on part in the Tony Award-win­ning mu­si­cal “Kinky Boots.”

Af­ter be­ing picked late Tues­day night over nearly 2,900 other dogs, Flynn was up early and on the go with han­dler Bill McFad­den. They ap­peared on “Good Morn­ing Amer­ica” and “Fox & Friends” be­fore head­ing over to “The View.”

Also on the dog’s docket: The tra­di­tional steak lunch at famed eatery Sardi’s and trips up the Em­pire State Build­ing, Top of the Rock and the One World Ob­ser­va­tory.

Flynn is nearly 6 and al­ready has a mu­si­cal theatre back­ground. His full cham­pion’s name in­cludes All I Care About Is Love — the lyrics sung by char­ac­ter Billy Flynn in the pop­u­lar show “Chicago.”
