The finals of the 138th annual Westminster Kennel Club dog show (pretty much the dog Oscars or puppy Olympics) took place on Wednesday evening NZ time.

Here are 17 of the cutest pics from the event ... we say give them all best in show!

But alas, there can only be one overall winner, which this year was a wire fox terrier named Sky ... 

Congrats to @Skywirefox #BestinShow winner and Pro Plan fed dog! #WKCDogShow #NutritionThatPerforms pic.twitter.com/xqhNaivLOm
