SALT LAKE CITY — If you blinked while watching the Westminster Dog Show Sunday, you might have missed the crazy fast run of a little dog named Gabby who’s stealing the hearts of the internet this week.
What happened: Gabby, a papillon who is 8 inches tall and 3 years old, completed the Westminster agility course at the 2019 WKC Masters Agility Championship with a blazing fast run of 39.31 seconds, according to Fox Sports.

- According to Metro, Gabby’s time wasn’t the fastest of the competition — that distinction went to Verb, a border collie from Wyncote, Pennsylvania, who finished the course in 32 seconds — but Gabby did win the 8-inch division title with her run.
Social media users were quick to share their admiration for the dog’s speed and energetic presence on the floor.

I want this dog to fight crime. Not as a sniffer dog, but as a slalom pooch— Greg Jenner (@greg_jenner) February 11, 2019
Imagine Usain Bolt sprinting over two dozen 5 foot hurdles, around a 400m track in under 30 seconds for a pat on the head and a cheesy nibble. I'm outa breath just sayin it.— Paul Bibby (@Paul63B) February 11, 2019
