Sorry, Martha Stewartbut a Peke hit the peak as Westminster's top dog.

While the domestic diva's Chow Chow, Ghenghis Khan II, took home the Best in Breed ribbon at the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show Monday morning, it was Malachy the Pekingese who was dubbed the nation's No. 1 show dog when the finals came to a close Valentine's Day night.

And Malachy had tons of competition at the 136th edition of the world's most famous battle of the pups, with over 2,000 (!) purebred dogs entered into Westminster over all.

Don't look for any sour grapes from Stewart over Khan II's overall loss, however. 

"Ghenghis is in a large crowd of superb champions, each the best of its breed-he showed very well," Stewart tweeted Monday.

Congrats to all the big winners. Take a bow-wow!
