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!
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!
