Local teen handler and her Saint Bernard compete at Westminster

Wausau, Wis. (WSAW) --- A Plainfield teen and her Saint Bernard have now competed twice at the prestigious Westminster dog show in New York.

Mikala Seymour, 15, and her dog, Ellington, qualified for Westminster this year for the second time in a row.

This year, Ellington was invited to come to the Midtown Manhattan Police Department for some pets and pictures. The pair was also invited to take part in a Road Scholar seminar at the New Yorker Hotel.

Although the pair showed well in Juniors at Westminster, they did not make it to the finals. But, Ellington did win an Award of Merit in the breed competition.
