A Pekingese that clearly was the crowd favorite has won America's top dog show. Malachy the Pekingese wobbled off with best in show Tuesday night at the Westminster Kennel Club in New York City.

The 4-year-old bobbing pompom won his 115th overall best in show title. He beat out a Dalmatian, a German shepherd, a Doberman pinscher, an Irish setter, a Kerry blue terrier, and a wire-haired dachshund at Madison Square Garden.

Judge Cindy Vogels picked the winner as fans at crowded Madison Square Garden hollered for their favorites.

The champion at Westminster wins a coveted silver bowl, but not a cent of prize money. Instead, the prestige of this title lasts a lifetime for any owner, and brings a wealth of opportunity in breeding potential.
