Show Dog Heads for the Hills after Westminster

Earlier this week was the annual Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show at Madison Square Garden. A whippet, stressing out after not winning, made a break for it at JFK:
The dog, a female Whippet named Bohem C'est La Vie, was scheduled to travel with her owners on a Delta Air Lines flight to California from New York -- where the dog show took place -- when she broke free from her cage about noon, according to Tiffany Townsend of the New York Port Authority.

Port Authority Police said they dispatched a helicopter to aid in the search for several hours Wednesday, and said the dog was spotted in marsh land surrounding the airport, but authorities on the ground were unable to catch her.
Link. It may have been her owners that drove her over the edge. But I suspect is was the ridiculous name. Bohem C'est La Vie? How is that any match for Rufus?
