Banana Joe, a five-year-old affenpinscher, was named the Best in Show at this year’s Westminster Dog Show. There is no prize money for this achievement, but Banana Joe takes home a silver bowl along with lots of publicity and prestige.
More than 2,700 dogs representing 187 varieties and breeds competed for honors at this year’s show which was held at Madison Square Garden.
The American Kennel Club recently released its list of America’s most popular dogs. At the top of the list is the Labrador retriever, followed by the German shepherd, golden retriever, beagle and the bulldog.
