Something to howl about!!!


My dog has a new role model. (See my Bailey on my sidebar)

Westminster Dog Show

Uno, the barking beagle became the first of his breed to ever win the coveted best in show prize at the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show. Despite the popularity of beagles in the U.S., none has ever won the top spot in the 100 year history of the prize. Uno strikes a pose with handler Aaron Wilkerson Tuesday night, after winning best in show at the 132nd Annual Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show at Madison Square Garden in New York City.

Watch his win!

Three cheers for beagles!!! Hopefully Bailey will use Uno's picture for some diet inspiration.

We always had beagles when I was growing up. They are such wonderful family pets. Everyone of ours was named Rebel.

Such a cute post! I don't think my little Paris Fifi would win a dog show, but she's a star in our eyes here! lol I love your Grandmother's blanket chest Nan, what a wonderful thing to have! I hope you're having a terrific weekend sweetie!

Oh, I heard about this earlier this week! One of the ladies in our office was so excited about it! Thanks for the post - I didn't get a chance to see the winner...

Best, Jen

I heard this on the news up here. I love beagles I think they have so much character and the ones I have met are so loving.

Although we have Jack Russell Terriers we were also cheering the little Beagle to win.

The April issue (out a little early, isn't it?) of Dog Fancy has an article on Beagles and features one on the cover. You might also like to meet Mr. Puffy, the beagle who helps his owner with her knitting blog. There's a link to it in the Blogroll section of my blog. I'll bet Bailey and Mr. Puffy would be great cyber friends.

Oh what lovely dogs those beagles are! Glad to see one getting some recognition. Will it be your darling dog next?! :-)

Hi Nan. My heart swelled with pride when I saw the little beagle win! I'm hoping Uno will be a role mode for my Mr Puffy who could use a role model!

Most of the movies you've listed are my favorites, too. I was happy to hear about that pretty little beagle winning best in show. It was fun to hear the crowd on the news. Hope you are having a lovely weekend.

How adorable! :-)

And the fact that you were playing Donny Osmond Puppy Love really melted my heart (as a Donny Osmond fan from way back!).
