The Westminster Dog Show winner 2014 has been announced, the AP reported Tuesday night.
Find out which dog took Best in Show at Madison Square Garden in New York on Feb. 11. Whether or not you're a fan of this year's winning breed, it's hard not to be happy when a dog, any dog, is being celebrated for any reason!
Sky, a five-year-old female Wire Fox Terrier, has taken top honors at the 138th Annual Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show this year. Almost 200 breeds and varieties competed at this year's event, and the contestants came from all 50 states, as well as numerous foreign entries.
Even before her WKC win, Sky was already a very famous dog; she gets more love on Facebook than most humans we know! Her personal Facebook page had over 46,000 likes on Tuesday; that number will likely increase significantly in the coming days and weeks. (Sky is also on Twitter and YouTube!)
Like many celebrities (think Jennifer Aniston, Mel Gibson, and Barbara Streisand, just to name a few), Sky lives a pampered life in Malibu, with the Pacific Ocean as her backyard.
Sky's win on Feb. 11 didn't come as a complete shock, but there were several other dogs who could just as easily have become this year's most celebrated canine. Take Nathan, the Bloodhound who placed top in his category; or Matisse, a gorgeous Portuguese Water Dog, who even other dog trainers admitted was "one of the most beautiful dogs we've ever seen."
But in the end, it was none other than Sky who would take this year's Best in Show title to become the top Westminster Dog Show winner 2014. Good girl, Sky, and congratulations to Sky's owners, handlers. and trainers!
