A very fluffy and (we're assuming) very good dog named Siba is officially the best in show for the Westminster Kennel Club.

The standard poodle took home the title Tuesday night in New York.

Siba triumphed over another dog named Daniel to take first place, despite chants from the crowd at Madison Square Garden for the very popular golden retriever.

No golden retriever has won best in show since the Westminster show began in 1877. This despite its being the third most popular breed in the United States, according to the American Kennel Club.
