Malachy the Pekingese Wins Best in Show!

by at . Comments

Malachy the Pekingese took home the coveted Best in Show ribbon at the prestigious Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show in New York City, ending last night.

Congrats, Malachy! Take a bow-wow! Sorry, that was lame.


While Martha Stewart's Chow Chow, Ghenghis Khan II, took home a Best in Breed ribbon Monday morning, but it was Malachy who was dubbed the nation's No. 1 show dog.

When the finals came to a close, he had bested nearly 2,000 purebred pups!

The competition was the 136th edition of the world's most famous battle of the canines, which inspired the classic faux-documentary Best in Show.

Here's Malachy getting groomed before his big win:


I think it's an unattractive breed. It seems to hobble along with that massive amount of shaggy hair. I could pick a better breed for all-round appearance.


If Malachy is anything like my fox colored Pekingnese Chu Chu that I had as a child,he is adorable with a "gorgeous" face that only an owner could love, and a snore equal to the sound of a lawn mower from across the street. Bravo to Malachy!!
