It`s a long way from the Symbionese Liberation Army to the Westminster Kennel Club – but there she is.
Patty Hearst (now Patricia Hearst Shaw) is one of the winners to come out of this week`s Westminster dog show at New York`s Madison Square Garden, as her French bulldog, Diva, won a red ribbon as "Best of Opposite Sex" (a male dog won the breed, and Diva was top female).
Hearst Shaw, 53, calls the win "overwhelming." "It`s like winning a gold medal at the Olympics. Or would this be a silver?" she tells the Associated Press (via CNN.com).
As for her unexpected appearance at the show, she adds, "When people find out it`s me, it`s like it doesn`t make sense. The Frenchie people know me because I`ve been around. But others, they seemed surprised."
