Banana Joe The Affenpinscher Takes Home The Top Prize At Westminster Dog Show
Well, what do we have here? Allow me to introduce you to Banana Joe, this year’s Westminster Kennel Club Best in Show. The five-year-old Affenpinscher snagged the trophy over the crowd favorite, an English sheepdog named Swagger. Best in Show judge Michael Dougherty said of the upset, “This little fella seemed to want it a touch more. He’s a fantastic Affenpinscher, with a fantastic face, a great body.” That he is! (I nominated him for today’s Hump Day Hottie, but as you can imagine, I was overruled.) My favorite thing about Joey (that’s what his handler calls him) is his little tongue, which lives outside of his mouth. So darling. A few more gloriously time-wasting photos of the Westminster winner, after the jump!
