As the sun set Tuesday night, a strapping group of elite athletes readied for a final blazing night of competition. No. I am not talking about the Olympics.

Arguably, the FIERCEST of sporting events, 2,800 dogs fluffed, jumped, sprinted, and wagged to the best of their abilities to be crowned top dog at Madison Square Garden.

The storied two-day event culminated with the final seven best of the bestest dogs. They were evaluated in Best of Group competitions, as well as obedience and agility contests — and they outshone even the most impressive of humans.

It was the second time that a bichon frise won the impressive title, dog officials said, praising his style and attitude. Just look at that focus and form, my goodness. Really taking fluff to new heights.

The 142nd #WKCDogShow Best in Show winner is Flynn the Bichon Frise!

Right after Flynn, whose registered name is apparently “Belle Creek’s All I Care About Is Love," won, his handler said, “I think I’ll have to ask the owners, but I’m pretty sure I can drop the mic and say he’s retired.”


And repeatedly hugged his human whenever he did a good job.

Speaking of strut, this is Winston. He won the terrier group.

And was far from surprised because he is Winston, king of the terriers and way better than you.

Other magnificent athletes included these boxers, who owned the green with speed, power, and agility. Just beautiful.

#Boxers move like the athletes they’re named for: smooth and graceful, but powerful. #WKCDogShow

And notable runners-up in the fluff department included the Samoyeds.
