Winky the Bishon Frise takes things at his own pace. And that was on full display when he competed in the agility contest preliminaries at the Westminster Dog Show 2019.
He took to the course with his own unique brand of enthusiasm. He stops several times around the course, pausing at the high perches to survey the crowd and soak up all the attention.
At 58 seconds in, he goes up one ramp and looks over at the crowd as if thanking them for their applause.
He’s definitely in no rush. His laconic, leisurely pace won him plenty of fans at the show and online after the dog show posted the video on Twitter, writing:
“One of our favorite moments from yesterday’s Masters Agility Championship Preliminaries, Winky the Bichon Frise!”
Winky does make his way through the entire course and finished with a time of 192 seconds. But no one was clocking his time by the end.

“Winky, a good boy having a fun time at his own pace,” one person commented on Twitter.
Another responded, “I love how he pauses whenever he’s high above the ground to look over at the crowd and marvel at them clapping for him.”
“We are all Winky going through the obstacle course of life,” one other user wrote. Yes, we’re all are Winky, or wish to be as relaxed and as easy going as Winky is. We can all use a little more Winky in our lives.
