Stump the Sussex Spaniel Is the Best In Show Winner of the 133rd Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show

2009 Westminster Winner: Best in Show!

It's the moment I've been waiting for! The results are in for all seven groups. I've listed the competing pups and the last time their breed took Best in Show at Westminster:

Group Breed Name Last Won In
Hound Scottish Deerhound Tiger Never
Terrier Scottish Terrier Sadie 1995
Non-Sporting Standard Poodle Yes 1991
Herding Puli Conrad Never
Sporting Sussex Spaniel Stump Never
Toy Brussels Griffon Lincoln Never
Working Giant Schnauzer Spirit Never

See who won it all when you


Stumpy! I mean, Stump, is the Best in Show at the 133rd Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show! The oldest winner in the history of Westminster at 10 years old, this Sussex Spaniel last won his group in 2004! I'll be following up with more info and photos of this cute fella as soon as he digs – I mean I dig – it up! Until then, we salute you, Champion "Clussexx Three D Grinchy Glee."

Does AnyOne know the final results at Westminster 2009? All I heard was Stump winning but no announcement was made as to 2nd or 3rd place? Particularly, where did Sadie the Scottish Terrier finally place?

I love that dog and his story about recovering from a near fatal illness. I could never be a judge though because I liked all the dogs!!

I was so happy for the Sussex Spaniel! They are one of my very favorite breeds! He was a darling with his little tail. And good for him showing that age ain't nothing but a number!

The only one I liked was the Scottish Deerhound. I HATE those froo-froo poodles and they always seem to win the Non-Sporting Group. Where's the Boston Terrier love? I don't think they even showed it this year. My Boston was pissed!
