A bloodhound named Trumpet won over the judges at the 146th annual Westminster Kennel Club Dog show on Wednesday, and took the top prize of Best in Show. 

A French bulldog name Winston took second place. 

The world-famous show, held in Tarrytown, N.Y., brings together breeds from around the world, but only one can win. The different types of groups that are judged against each other include hounds, toy, non-sporting, herding, sporting, terrier, and working. 

From Weimaraners to poodles, there might be winners and losers, but they are all very good dogs. 

Here are some of the best behind-the-scenes looks at the 2022 extravaganza.
