ALL Beagles, rejoice!
The Top dog in this year's highly prestigious Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show is a beagle!
Miss P, a four-year-old beagle snatched the coveted Best in Show title from all other hopeful breeds, big and small, from six other dog groups. She is only the second beagle to ever win the title in the 139 years history of the show. The first and last beagle to win the Westminster in 2008 was Uno, P's great-uncle, who ended the beagle's losing streak since 1907.
Miss P, a Canadian, 15-inch beagle, also defeated a Portuguese water dog that is cousin to US President Barack Obama's presidential dog “Bo”.
Miss P breezed through the competition by doing everything flawlessly according to her handler. The victory of Miss P, full name "Ch Tashtins Looking for Trouble," is hailed as the victory for the common pooch.
