Hot Dog: Affenpinscher Banana Joe Wins Best In Show

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.
