Pekingese, Best in Show 2012 = By Sara Bogush
This year, the honor of being crowned Best in Show at the 2012 Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show has gone to a Pekingese called Ch Palacegarden Malachy. In this year's competition, this Pekingese stood apart from the field of almost 2,500 dogs, earning the breed its fourth Best in Show title at Westminster.
In the Group judging, which took place over the course of two nights (including directly preceding the Best in Show competition on the second night), Ch Palacegarden Malachy displayed a potential to take home the top prize in this year's competition, winning the crowd over with his graceful moves on the green carpet. And the premonition proved to come true; in the Best in Show competition, this Pekingese displayed the same grace and left the crowd (and Judge Cindy Vogels) mesmerized.
Truly, it has been a magical conclusion to two eventful days at the 136th annual Westminster Kennel Club Show.
