Tucson's own furry friend heads to Westminster Dog Show

CREATED Jan. 30, 2014

TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - One of Tucson's most famous faces is actually covered in fur.

"G-Man," the Yorkshire Terrier is headed to New York City to compete in the 138th annual Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show.

His owner Nancy stopped by our studios Thursday to give some inside information on the glamorous life of a professional pet. 

"He's my life," his owner Nancy Lonas said. "He's a regular dog."

Nancy also said the field of competition can occassionally get the "fur flying," somewhat like in the famous movie "Best in Show."

"G-Man" will have to be in top shape next week. He will compete against nearly 3,000 dogs for the grand prize at Westminster.
