Best In Show! And The Winner Of The Westminster Dog Show Is…

| Filed under: AwardzCuteness!Dog

The winner of the Westminster Kennel Club dog show is a wire fox terrier named...

The 138th annual Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show went down last night at Madison Square Garden in NYC.

After all was said and done, which pooch came out on top??

The winner of the prestigious Best in Show is…

Sky! The wire fox terrier!!

Sky beat out an Irish water spaniel, a cardigan Welsh corgi, a Portuguese water dog, a bloodhound, a miniature pinscher and a standard poodle!

In all, there were 2,845 doggies competing for the top prize, but Sky beat them all.

What's amazing about Sky is that she's already won 128 best in show titles during her career! A wire fox terrier has won a whopping FOURTEEN times, a feat done by no other breed!

We'd have picked her to win based solely off the extreme amounts of cuteness blasting out of this pretty pooch!

And, even more heartwarming is that one of the contestants in the inaugural competition was Emma, a mixed-breed dog who was rescued by her owner Christy Wrede, just before being put down at a kill shelter! WOW! As we mentioned, this was the first time the Westminster Dog Show included mixed breeds! Aw!

Congrats on the big win, Sky!!

    Another freak'n terrier wins — so tired of these little dogs and poodles wining.. I would love to see some of the big dogs winning for a change and from the bully group would be nice too, or Newfs, Boxers, Rotties, Leonbergers, Huskies.. you rarely see these beauties win.

    Re: Bigdawg – I thought the same thing when I saw the winner. I'm partial to big dogs since my family has one, but it'd be nice to see one win for a change.

    LOVE this little guy. I have two part terriers and they're *smart* and game little girls.

    Re: Bigdawg – Check out the list of past winners. There's quite a bit of variety. In 2011 a Scottish Deerhound won best of show.
    Re: mlyjn – I used to have a gorgeous Scottish Collie and Shepard, along with a Golden Retriever so love the big dogs too.

    Wish they would publicize the show more, caught it once by accident. Yes they pick some strange winners.

    I'm aware of past winners, but in general terriers have won the majority. 45 Terriers WON the west minister over the years . Here's the breakdown
    45 terriers
    19 Sporting (majority springers/spaniels)
    15 Working
    10 Toy
    1 Hound
    I love all dogs.. but the slant on wins is just a joke.

    I love dogs, and I love my lab but the picture turns my stomach. I don't care that people say dogs tongues are cleaner than humans, it still licks its own ass and breath smells rank. I don't want that tongue near my mouth. Ugh!
