CJ the German shorthaired pointer had tails wagging on Tuesday night when he was named Best in Show at the 2016 Westminster Dog Show.

The three-year-old took home the top honors to close out the 140th annual Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show held at Madison Square Garden, New York City.

He beat out fellow fan favorites Annabelle (a Bulldog), Rumor (a German Shepherd), Lucy (a Borzoi) and Panda (a Shih Tzu).

Best in Show was judged by Dr. Richard Meen of Ontario, Canada, who crowned Lucy from Temecula, California, as the reserve.

CJ now gets to enjoy the traditional steak lunch at Sardi's restaurant, which was almost abolished in 2012 due to health code concerns, where he will lap up a gourmet meal from a silver platter.
