Hot Dog: Affenpinscher Banana Joe Wins Best In Show
Tuesday, February 12, 2013
He's America's top dog: An affenpinscher named Banana Joe was named best in show Tuesday at the Westminster Kennel Club in New York.
Here's more from The Associated Press:
"Affectionately called a monkey dog because he looks just like one, Banana Joe made up for near misses the last two years at Madison Square Garden.
"The 5-year-old wagged his tail a mile a minute after earning his 86th best in show title overall. It was a timely win, too, coming a day before he was set to fly back to the Netherlands with his owner."
Swagger, the old English sheepdog, was named reserve best in show.
An American foxhound, a bichon frise, a German wirehaired pointer, a Portuguese water dog and smooth fox terrier rounded out the top seven.
More than 2,700 dogs took part in the competition.
