Congrats to Malachy the 4-year-old Pekingese who won Best in Show at the 136th Annual Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show.

Malachy is a veteran of the dog show circuit, having 114 wins already!

That's crazy!

The dog's handler said:

"I'm still in shock, it's such a thrill.

I'm just so proud to have a dog that's of this quality that could win a show like this, and to have the opportunity to exhibit him here – it's the thrill of a lifetime."

It really must be, not only because it's a prestigious title, it has a very long history.

The Westminster Dog Show has been going on since 1877!

It's been broadcast on TV since 1948.

Congrats again to Malachy!

When Dr. Patrick Mahaney isn't helping animals during the work day, he's enjoying spending time with them at glamourous events, like the Pre-Westminster Fashion Show at New York’s Hotel Pennsylvania.

Luckily for all of us, he brought a camera and wrote a review of the whole event.

He said:

"In prepping for the Westminster Kennel Club 136th Annual Dog Show, I attended the Pre-Westminster Fashion Show at New York’s Hotel Pennsylvania.

The "Venetian Masquerade" theme featured both humans and canines displaying their personal interpretation of Venetian masks and attire. The night of high fashion and philanthropy benefitting animal welfare in support of Animal Care and Control of New York City. The event was produced by Oehler Media Productions (publisher of Cesar's Way magazine).

A variety of furry and less-hirsute participants attended the festivities, including CNN and Showbiz Tonight’s AJ Hammer (less-hirsute).

The “puptuals” wedding theme featured canine couples sporting four seasons inspired garb. The Natural Balance Pet Food sponsored “exhibitors runway show” showcased useful pet products, including:

PhysiPet behavior stimulation and exercise toys

Living The Good Life custom pet memorabilia

Style Hounds hand knit canine sweaters and accessories

Waglet Works adventure dog gear

Tails Untold personalized books of pet adventure

Other notable runway walkers included Greg Kleva (Host of It’s a Dog’s Life on Sirius XM 110 Martha Stewart Radio) and Nikki Moustaki (award winning writer and founder of Pet Postcard Project).

Martha Stewart's chow chow, Genghis Khan II, won a blue ribbon at the first day of the Westminster Dog Show for Best in Breed!

Congrats!

She wrote on twitter:

"Ghenghis khan did it! Best of Breed at Westminster!!!! Big Deal"

Stewart was at Madison Square Garden along with Genghis's handler, Jan Kolnick and his co-owner and breeder, Karen Tracy.

They must all be so proud of the cute 3-month-old pup.

Now, Genghis is getting ready to compete in another non-sporting category, trying for the title of Best in Group.

If he wins, he'll be only one step away from the prestigious title: World's Best Breed!

Wouldn't that be something??

Best of luck to you, Martha and Genghis!
