A dog named King crowned winner at Westminster



A wire fox terrier from Brazil named King was announced Tuesday as the winner of the 143rd Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show.


There were some boos — along with cheers — when the judge pointed at the 7-year-old wire fox terrier.


Bono the Havanese came in second. More than 2,800 dogs competed before the finals at Madison Square Garden.


Among the finalists: Bean, a popular Sussex spaniel that has won the sporting group two years in a row; 



Burns a crowd-pleasing longhaired dachshund; Wilma, a boxer; and Baby Lars, a bouviers des Flandres.



There is no prize money for the win, just a shiny silver bowl. But the rewards come later - in the form of breeding rights and bragging rights.
