Over 2,800 dogs in 200 breeds were competing for the top prize in the New York City show , the second-oldest sporting event in the United States behind the Kentucky Derby horse race.

NEW YORK -- From wire to wire, Sky was America's top dog . The 5-year-old wire fox terrier won best in show at the Westminster Kennel Club on Tuesday night, finishing off a year in which she was ranked the nation's No. 1 dog .

"Biggie is a goof," said Esteban Farias, handler of a pug named Biggie, who won the toy group contest on Monday and will be among the seven group champions vying for the ultimate prize.

"He's funny. ... When my kids are playing, he grabs the toys and runs all over the house."

This year's Best in Show winner, picked from a pack of nearly 3,000 competitors, gets a trophy, a media tour and bragging rights that boost breeding fees. It is the reward for patiently withstanding the blasts of blow dryers and tugs of combs and brushes.

Dogs compete in seven groups - hound, toy, nonsporting, herding, working, sporting and terrier - with the winners then competing for Best in Show, in the competition at Madison Square Garden in midtown Manhattan.
