  • Affenpinscher Banana Joe V Tani Kazari has won the 137th Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show.
    The 5-year-old pup, whose owners call him Joe, is the first of his breed to win the Best in Show category. Additionally, for the first time since 1925, Westminster named a runner-up with the Reserve Best in Show going to 20-month-old Old English Sheepdog Swagger.

    Affenpinschers are known for their monkey-like face and human-like qualities. "They have a comical seriousness about them," Joe's handler Ernesto Lara said. "He doesn't think he's funny. He doesn't know his size or know that he has a pushed-in face. He thinks he's Mr. America."
    After his victory tour, Joe will retire and head back home to Holland.
