"I couldn't have asked for anything more," Jason Lynn said after his triumph at Birmingham's National Exhibition Centre.

"He gave an absolutely beautiful performance and I am so proud of him.

"He was top dog all breeds last year and we decided that this would be his last show -- and he has ended it in the most wonderful way possible."

The poodle fought off competition from a Pomeranian, a wire fox terrier, an Irish Wolfhound, a Samoyed, a Rottweiler and an American Cocker Spaniel in the final round of competition.

The show celebrates its 123rd anniversary this year.
