On Monday, fans saw the following groups award Best of Breed honors: Hound, Toy, Non-Sporting and Herding. All of the results can be viewed at WestminsterKennelClub.com.
Of note moving forward in this glamorous event are the four Best in Group winners from Monday. Here are the four dogs moving on to vie for Best in Show honors:
Classy, a miniature pinscher, won the Toy group, and his owners, Leah Monte and Armando Angelbello, now will look forward to moving onto winning Best in Show.
Angelbello, who also trains Classy, still seems to be enjoying the moment, however. He was quoted by the Miami Herald after the Best in Group win as saying, “Winning at Westminster is a dream of every breeder and owner.”
This competition is more open than ever. That is due to Swagger not winning Best in Group honors. The English sheepdog is a veteran performer and a proven crowd charmer.
The Los Angeles Times' Tina Susman wasn't shy about labeling Swagger one of the favorites:

Of course, this isn't all that surprising. If Swagger sounds familiar, it is likely because he was first runner-up behind last year's Best in Show champ, Banana Joe—a tiny black affenpinscher.
Alas, none of this was good enough to have Swagger moving on, but that won't stop this show from coming to a riveting conclusion.
