    There would be no major upset Tuesday night at the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show. That happened earlier in the day when a black cocker spaniel named Beckham, the top-ranked dog in 2011 according to Dog News, lost to others in his breed.

    But statistics matter, or at least tell you something about a great dog’s strength.
    A Pekingese called Malachy, last year’s No. 2 dog, won Best in Show — the fourth time for the breed and the 10th time for the toy group.
    Malachy is not a speedy dog. While his six competitors sped around the ring at Madison Square Garden, Malachy moved so deliberately that he only had to make a half circuit on the green carpet. It did not matter. Beneath his long coat and lion’s mane — and behind that distinctive pushed-in face — was the club’s ultimate champion.
    The judge, Cindy Vogels, put Malachy ahead of a German shepherd, a Dalmatian, a Kerry blue terrier, a Doberman pinscher, a wire-haired dachshund and an Irish setter who gave birth to 15 puppies last May (using the frozen semen of a long-dead sire) and had just returned from a year’s maternity leave.
    “He’s a super dog who had a stupendous night,” Vogels said of Malachy.
    In triumph, Malachy relaxed, splaying himself on a table for his news conference. If you looked hard, or close enough, you could see his little eyes. His face was framed by a coat that gave him the look of a 1960’s guru — or perhaps Cousin Itt’s pet.
    The great man sneezed. He looked at the microphones as if they were toys.
    He was spritzed with water by David Fitzpatrick, his handler and co-owner.
    “He’s a very happy dog,” Fitzpatrick said. “He’s an extrovert in the ring.”
    Malachy defeated the other toy dogs Monday and had 24 hours to relax. “I kept him quiet all day to save his energy for tonight.”
    Last year, Malachy also made it to Best in Show, but lost to a Scottish deerhound.
    “Malachy’s a little more mature this year,” said Fitzpatrick, who had a broken arm last year.
    Iris Love, also a co-owner, said that she was wearing a yellow blouse in Malachy’s honor, one that is sprinkled with images of a dragon, which is her dog’s insignia.
    “This is the year of the dragon,” she said, then proclaimed: “We are in the presence of an imperial Pekingese. That doesn’t happen very often.”
    Fitzpatrick knows that his Pekingese was a bit different from the other dogs. He is small, about 12 pounds. Maybe a half-pound of it was hair. But when he was asked about Malachy’s clear lack of speed, he responded with a bit of testiness about his dog’s rivals.
    “Their gait should be slower,” he said.
    Of course, it is hard to tell a Doberman to slam on his brakes to keep up with Malachy. Who was going to tell the Irish setter, with his shimmering coat and elegant form, to slow down for the Pekingese? Nature’s canine order would have to be altered.
    But, then, it was the little Pekingese, with his unhurried, short-legged style, who won. “His demeanor was spotless,” Vogels said. “He was flawless.”
    For Malachy, his 115th best in show performance was his last.
    At 4 years old, he is retiring, to live with Fitzpatrick as his pet.
    “He will chase squirrels,” he said. “He will be pampered.” Even as Malachy hunts for rodents with fluffy tails, he will not lose his signature coat. “I don’t have the heart to trim him,” said Fitzpatrick, who has had Pekingese since he was 14.
    The night began with the judging of the sporting, working and terrier groups following Monday’s selection of winners in the toy, non-sporting, herding and hound groups. Emily, an Irish setter, won the sporting group; Chelsea, a Kerry blue terrier, defeated all other terriers, and Fifi, a Doberman, was chosen over other working dogs.
    Jocleyn Mullins, who owns, breeds and handles Fifi, extolled her Doberman’s intelligence. “She has a beautiful mind,” she said. “She’s brilliant.”
    Why name her Fifi?
    “The breed has kind of a harsh reputation,” she said. “It’s like naming a Chihuahua Spike.”
    The decision to show Emily at Westminster was made at the last minute. A mother of 10 boys and 5 girls, Emily needed her muscle tone and gorgeous red coat to return after her pregnancy. Adam Bernardin, her owner and handler, said: “It took a lot of road work to get her back in shape. We gave her good food and lots of work.”
    He added: “She’s just the best dog ever.”

    Tout d'abord, un rapport special avec les Chinois?

    Le Pekinois est juste une race de chien certes originaire de Chine, longtemps reserves aux empereurs chinois, mais pourquoi associer ces chiens aux Chinois? Ca gagne souvent les competitions ces petites bestioles rien qu'avec leur tetes marrantes, par ailleurs^^

    De toutes facons, tout le monde est un chien quelquepart^^ Un chien pour sa vie^^ A mediter au second degre^^

    Du tout.

    Du tout.

    Pékinois est un habitant de Pékin, ce qui te définit , à ma connaissance.

    Accessoirement, ça définit une race de Chien (racisme?).

    Un peu de légèreté, les mecs.

    Venant de ta part, le Chti, c'est provocateur et quelque part tendancieux ...

    L'humour est humain mais en l'espèce, on a dû mal à y croire venant de ta part ...

    Merci d'enlever la dernière phrase que tu as rajouté ...
