The Westminster Kennel Club's annual dog show competition, which, for the first time included an agility event, wrapped up last night.

The top prize, Best in Show, went to Sky, a five-year-old wire fox terrier. Props to Sky. Well deserved. Good walkin'.

While Sky enjoys her fancy ribbon and looks forward to a steak lunch at Sardi's, let's enjoy all the other incredible dogs that showed up to compete, nap, and sniff one another's butts.
