His name is “Uno” and he won “Best in Show” last night!
Apparently, this is the first time a beagle has one the title for almost 100 years, according to MSNBC:
The only dog consistently listed among Americaâ€™s most popular breeds for nearly 100 years, a beagle had never won in the 100 times Westminster picked a winner. That changed when judge J. Donald Jones pointed to this nearly 3-year-old package of personality.
Uno was numero uno, beating out two perfect poodles, a top Sealyham terrier, a sleek Weimaraner, a lively Australian shepherd and a sprightly Akita.
When I was in school training for my veterinary technician degree, I had an assignment to go to a dog show. It was actually pretty interesting, but I doubt I’ll go to one again.
