CJ, a German shorthaired pointer, was named best in show at the 140th Westminster Kennel Club dog show. A nearly 4-year-old Borzoi named Lucy won the hound group in her first year of showing, after becoming the top dog in Japan.

Though not to be one of the best-in-show contenders, Max is not hurting for love, Schuster said. And though Lucy has another handler, Ozeki opted for her husband, Shota Hirai - a professional handler in Japan - to lead Lucy on Monday night.

"He was born an old soul", Valerie Atkinson of California, his owner and breeder, told a crowd of reporters after accepting the award. Altogether there were 199 breeds and over 2,700 dogs, as well as three times as many groomers, handlers and owners, who turned out for the 140th edition of the show.

"This dog never stopped looking", Meen said.

Do not continue if you don't want to know what happened during the 2016 Westminster Dog Show! "There have been a lot of shows, a lot of "best of breeds" to accumulate national rankings, and the competition has been tough". "She doesn't get excited, she's very easy", said Hetherington.

"He's impatient", she says to her human friends, before turning back to her favorite grump and addressing his pleas directly: "It won't open any faster that way!" However, it was Rumor, the German Shepherd who won the Herding group, who was the crowd favorite of the night.

"For us that are in this sport, this is the pinnacle", she said.

As part of the Westminster competition, judges select the best of each breed and group, divided into seven categories - hound, toy, non-sporting, herding, sporting, working and terrier.

"Oh, they're all so attractive", Scott said.

Another local dog competing in the show was Watson, the French bulldog from Vine Grove, but he didn't place. "I just think she's pretty".


Humphrey, with handler, JJ "Pepe" Leyton, competes at Pier 94 for the Westminster Kennel Club dog show in Manhattan on Tuesday, Feb. 16, 2016.
