Banana Joe Wins The Westminster Dog Show
America’s top dog is an Affenpinscher.
The 5-year-old wagged his tail a mile a minute and stuck out his pink tongue 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. That trip has been postponed for his victory lap.
“He’s won a lot of big shows, but not like this one,” handler Ernesto Lara said.
A class clown, this champion also is pretty bright.
“He speaks German, Dutch, Spanish and English,” co-owner and breeder Mieke Cooijmans offered.
