An Affenpinscher Named Banana Joe Wins Best in Show at 137th Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show
And then...there were seven. Seven dogs were chosen from the pool of over 2,700 canines. Seven dogs who best represented their breed, and eventually their American Kennel Club recognized Group, rose to compete in the Best in Show contest at America's most prestigious dog show on the iconic green carpet of America's most famous arena.
Receiving ovations from the crowd, old favorites and unexpected competitors like the Old English Sheepdog captivated the hearts of those in attendance and those watching afar on TV or online. While all were certainly worthy of praise in their own right, only one can win Westminster's Best in Show.
This year, the honor of being crowned Best in Show at the 2013 Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show has gone to an Affenpinscher called Banana Joe. This pooch rose from the pool of those displayed on Day 1 and advanced from the field of almost 2,700 dogs to compete in and eventually win Westminster's Best in Show prize. Congrats, Banana Joe!
