A 10-year-old Sussex spaniel has become America's top dog.

Stump is the oldest winner ever at the Westminster Kennel Club show. He came out of retirement only last week and wound up with the biggest prize in dogdom.

Stump beat out six other group winners Tuesday night.

Nearly 2,500 dogs were entered at the 133rd edition of Westminster. Last year's champion, a beagle named Uno, was perhaps the most popular winner ever.
