Westminster Dog Show 2012: Meet Malachy, the Pekingese best-in-show
About 20,0000 people poured into Madison Square Garden in each of the past two days to cheer for their favourite dogs at the 136th annual Westminster Dog Show. Victors included Genghis Khan, a chow chow owned by homestyle guru Martha Stewart that also won a best-of-breed award Monday night.
The overall top dog from the group champions – an 11-pound Pekingese named Malachy – was crowned on Tuesday night. Malachy triumphed over a German shepherd, a Doberman, an Irish setter, a dachshund and a Kerry blue terrier.
It’s Malachy’s 115th overall best-in-show title. “He’s a super dog, who had a stupendous night,” Judge Cindy Vogels said. (Photos: Mike Segar/Reuters)
