An adorable little cloud Bichon Frise won Best in Show at the 142 Annual Westminster Kennel Club’s Dog Show.

Flynn — or, as he’s officially known, GCHP CH Belle Creek’s All I Care About Is Love — beat out nearly 3,000 dogs to win the top prize on Feb. 13, 2018.

“It feels a little unreal,” Flynn’s handler, Bill McFadden, told Fox Sports following the competition Tuesday night. “I came in expecting nothing except hoping for a good performance, and I think I got it.”

The super-fluffy Flynn won his group, the Non-Sporting Group, before moving on to join six other group winners in the Best in Show competition. He came in third place in the Non-Sporting Group last year at Westminster, which saw a German Shepherd named Rumor take Best in Show.

The six other dogs who competed for BIS with Flynn this year were:

1. Norfolk Terrier GCHS CH Yarrow Venerie Winning Ticket, aka Winston, winner of the Terrier Group.
