Nearly 3,000 dogs traveled to New York City to compete in the Westminster Dog Show this past weekend, but only one could be Best in Show.

This year, the honor was given to Rumor, a 5-year-old female German shepherd.

The Best in Show Judge Thomas H. Bradley told CNN that German shepherds were all about quality and nobility when the prize was awarded last night.

“When you recognize it, it hits you home, and that’s what it really is. She is just magnificent,” Bradley said.

Rumor is named after Adele’s song “Rumor Has It,” according to CNN, which means Adele has so far been completely owning 2017.

The German shepherd won the herding group in order to compete for Best in Show. Here are the six other finalists who won their their category and also competed for the top prize.

Best Hound: Duffy, Norwegian elkhound

Best Toy: Chuckie, Pekingese

Best Non-Sporting: Aftin, miniature poodle

Best Sporting: Adrian, Irish setter

Best Working: Devlin, boxer

Best Terrier: Tanner, Norwich terrier

Congratulations to all of these very excellent doggos.
