Concluding two days of fierce and fluffy competition at the 141st Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show in New York City, a German shepherd named Rumor earned Best in Show honors Tuesday night at Madison Square Garden.

Rumor had won the Herding Group a day earlier en route to the overall victory.

She had been a favorite to win at last year's Westminster Dog Show, and finally achieved that goal this year.

Photographers gathered around the winning dog and her hardware late Tuesday night.

"It's, like, unbelievable," Kent Boyles, who's Rumor's owner, breeder and handler, told Fox Sports 1 moments after the dog's Best in Show victory. "I gotta wind up just maybe not sayin' a lot, just so I keep it together."

Rumor faced some stiff (and adorable) competition in that final round.

Adrian, an Irish Setter, won the Sporting Group and was named runner-up.

Duffy, a Norwegian elkhound, won the Hound Group.

Chuckie, a Pekingese, won the Toy Group.

Aftin, a miniature poodle, won the Non-Sporting Group.

Devlin, a boxer, won the Working Group.

And Tanner, a Norwich terrier, won the Terrier Group.

WATCH | Before the winner was crowned at MSG, Circa strolled behind the scenes at Pier 92, where early-round competitions unfolded and these Bergamascos set some serious #squadgoals.

WATCH | Even the most low-maintenance pooches were pampered and preened for the big event. Who says hairspray and attitude are just for humans?

WATCH | And with news that this year's event allowed cats to be a part of the event, at least one person in attendance found the feline inclusion a bit dubious.
