    Barking and baying up a storm, Uno lived up to his name Tuesday night by becoming the first beagle to win best in show at the Westminster Kennel Club.

    My beagle Rupert is one proud dog tonight.

    About time something other than a poodle wins! I loved that Newfie that won several years ago.

    This made my daughter very happy. She is only 9 but raises beagles.
    This started as a homeschool project and turned into a small business for her..by business I mean she was to raise the dogs and sell them but she and my dad (her business partner,lol) doesn't have the heart to part with any of her "babies" so we have 5 little spayed beagles running in our yard.
    DIVA DOGS is what they have turned into!

    Wasn't he just the cutest thing? Snoopy must be proud. I bet he's on top of his doghouse pounding out a congradulatory letter to Uno right now.

    Oh yes! Josh! Wasn't he absolutely beautiful. Ran around on his victory lap letting everyone know he won too. lol He sure had personality.

    My daughter and I are big dog fans. We have a Bichon Frise. I took my daughter 2 years ago to the Westminster Kennel Dog Show when "Rufus" won Best in Show. It is absolutely the most amazing event! You literally need a full day at the Garden to appreciate everything that goes on with that show, both in the rings and in the background. We got to see first hand what goes on "backstage" with the grooming and prep of all of the gorgeous dogs.

    I had a beagle many many years ago and they are the most loveable dogs! I am so happy for Uno and his family!
