It’s total perfection.
Martha Stewart couldn’t help but gushed over the chow chow that won at this year’s Westminster Dog Show – revealing the pooch is actually related to her late dog.
The 80-year-old took to Instagram to share the sweet anecdote, revealing that the parent of her late dog Ghenghis Khan won Best of Breed for the Chow Chow at the 146th Annual Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show.
“Great news from @westminsterkennelclub! Non-sporting breeds were judged including chow chows!! Buddakan won,” Stewart wrote alongside a snap of the winning dog on Instagram.
“He is the son of my conqueror Genghis khan, and Genghis was the son of the conqueror Maddox. Three generations of chow chows that I am so proud of!!!!!!!”
In 2012, Stewart’s own Chow Chow, Ghenghis Khan, won Best of Breed at the dog show.
“Genghis Khan did it! Best of breed in Westminster! Big problem,” Stewart tweeted at the time.
This year’s show saw its first sleuth emerge victorious from the event after being crowned Best in Show winner.
The bloodhound, named Trompette, beat a French Bulldog, German Shepherd, Maltese, English Setter, Samoyed and Lake Terrier to win the trophy.
Winston, a French Bulldog co-owned by NFL defensive lineman Morgan Fox, took second place in the nation’s most prestigious dog show.
The competition attracted over 3,000 purebred dogs, ranging from Affenpinschers to Yorkshire Terriers. The objective is to crown the dog that most represents the ideal for its breed.
Usually held in the winter at New York’s Madison Square Garden, the show moved to the suburban Lyndhurst estate in Tarrytown, NY last year and this year due to the coronavirus pandemic.
