And the winner is ...

With floppy ears and a slow gait, the golden-red Sussex Spaniel, Stump, won over a giant schnauzer, a favored Brussels griffon, a Scottish deerhound named Tiger Woods, a standard poodle with 94 best-in-show victories, a Scottish terrier and a puli. Stump, 10, is the oldest-ever winner of the 2009 133rd Westminster Kennel Club dog show at Madison Square Garden in New York. Stump won the sporting group in 2004 but then became ill and almost died.

That was by far the oddest best in group of dogs I've ever seen at the Westminster show -- and how cool was THAT?

And Stump? He simply sparkled.
