Day 2 of the 2014 Westminster Dog Show brought quite a few more beautiful breeds to the spotlight as the Sporting, Working and Terrier groups took center stage in Madison Square Garden.

But the real winner of the second night came late in the show when Sky, a Wire Fox Terrier took home Best in Show, the ultimate crown in the competition. The Westminster Dog Show's official Twitter account reported the winner:

Seven groups overall competed in the 2014 edition—with the Hound, Toy, Non-Sporting and Herding going on the first night—but the Terrier breed proved to be the most elegant in the competition.

As David Spiegel of CNBC reports, the Dog Show owners can churn out some serious earnings just to have their dogs in the event, much less win it at all:

After thousands of dogs were entered into the show, just 168 took home Best in Breed, seven won Best in Group and only one stood as the overall winner as Best in Show.

There were even a few new breeds entering the show from Days 1 and 2, as Purina Pro Plan points out:

Here's a look at all the Best of Breed winners from Day 2, followed by a breakdown of the Best in Group winners and one more look at the Best in Show winner.

Sporting Group

The Sporting went to the Irish Water Spaniel by the simpler name of Riley. While Whistlestop's Riley on Fire is extravagant, this Spaniel's more simplistic look from some of the other Sporting Group dogs earned it the win.

Riley was followed by a Black Cocker Spaniel, Golden Retriever and an English Springer Spaniel, who all won Best of Breed earlier in the day.

The Irish Water Spaniel is a rare breed that also happens to be one of the largest and oldest of the Spaniel breeds. With the win, Riley finished as one of the top seven dogs in the competition and took home some hardware for its efforts, but not the Best in Show.

 

Working Group

It's been a good year for the Portuguese Water Dog.

Whether it's Barack Obama's family bringing home two of their own named Bo and Sunny, who participated in the Puppy Bowl, or Matisse the Portuguese Water Dog winning several competitions throughout the year, the breed is sitting near the top of the dog world.

After crushing its competition throughout the year, Matisse once again won in the Working Group of the Westminster Dog Show.

Elizabeth Griffin, photo editor of Esquire, tweeted out congratulations to Matisse and mentioned Michelle Obama:

Just behind Matisse were the Mastiff, Akita and Boxer, two of which are more traditional dogs in the U.S. But with the Portuguese Water Dog taking the Working Group, this could be a breed that sees a spike in interest over the next year.

 

Terrier Group/Best in Show

Sky the Wire Fox Terrier had to wait until the very end of the competition to earn any big prizes, but it was definitely worth the wait.

Not only did Sky take home one of the ultimate prizes in the dog show competition by winning the Terrier Group but also won the pinnacle of all awards with the Best in Show honor on Day 2.

The Wire Fox Terrier beat out every other dog in the competition for the crown, but Ally, a Standard Poodle who won her group the night prior, finished just behind the Terrier for second in the show.

Just behind Sky in the Terrier group was, ironically enough, the Skye Terrier breed followed by the Border and Russell Terriers. But no one could deny Sky as the ultimate winner on the final night of the competition and the 2014 Best in Show winner.
