NEW YORK -- Banana Joe didn't monkey around this time. The little affenpinscher with the bouncy step and shiny black coat walked off as America's top dog Tuesday night, winning best in show at the Westminster Kennel Club.
Affectionately called a monkey dog because he looks just like one, Banana Joe made up for near misses the last two years at Madison Square Garden.
Either one of my cats could whup ya, though. I was kind of rooting for the bichon frise. Since I first saw the one in "As Good As It Gets," it's been my favorite breed. Yeak, I know, they're probably not half as cool as the one in the movie.
