Martha Stewart, goddess of domesticity and queen of dressing babies like turkeys, is a champion. And so is her dog.
Stewart’s chow chow, Ghenghis Khan, won best in breed at the prestigious Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show. He will now compete with the non-sporting group Monday and if he wins that, best in show on Tuesday evening.
(Tragically, Stewart’s first chow chow also named Ghenghis Khan died in an explosion at a Pennsylvania kennel in 2009.
At the event, seen in this video created by Buzzfeed, Stewart watches ringside as Ghenghis walks in a circle. After his win, Stewart applauds, smiles and high fives. Sure, it's not very exciting. But it is very cute.
(Note: Stewart spells Ghenghis’s name as written in this post, while Westminster lists his name as “Genghis.”)
Update: A dalmatian beat Ghenghis Khan in the non-sporting group event. There’s always next year, Martha!
