Siba the standard poodle named Best in Show at Westminster

With her stylish standard poodle locks, Siba won the best in show award at the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show Tuesday night.

On its website, the Westminster Kennel Club says the men chose to put on a dog show named for the meeting spot, while trading stories about hunting and their dogs' exploits.

Monday brought the first night of group competition at Madison Square Garden in NY, with winners in the toy, non-sporting, herding and hound groups. Because the Jersey duo has won so many times - every year since obedience was added to the dog show in 2016 - they retired the obedience trophy. A standard last won in 1991.

There are three remaining group competitions: Sporting, Working and Terrier.

To get to the final round of the competition, the dogs first had to compete against their own breeds and then win their group competition. Siba beat out the boxer, the golden retriever, the Shetland sheepdog, the wire-haired fox terrier, the whippet, and the Havanese. After each group selects a victor, those three dogs will join the four winners from Monday night to compete for Best in Show. For one, the Poodle was in competition with breeds, groups and specific dogs with a longer history of success at Westminster and beyond, including Bono, pegged by Dog News Magazine as the top-ranked dog in competition. It is the second-oldest sporting event in the country, after only the Kentucky Derby horse race. One mistake, like confusing a wire fox terrier for a smooth fox terrier, could set off a Twitter firestorm among dog show enthusiasts. He was the 15th member of his breed to take the "Best of Show" title.
