13th Westminster Favorite Is Top Dog

13th Westminister Dog Show

A happy beagle named “Uno” made history last night, becoming the first of his breed to win the 132-year-old Westminster Kennel Club dog show in New York.

The 15-inch-tall (38-centimeter) champion beat six highly ranked, highly coifed pooches for the title: a standard and toy poodle, a Sealyham terrier, an akita, a weimaraner and an Australian shepherd.

“Everything he does is correct,” said J. Donald Jones, the 75-year-old judge who bestowed the top prize for purebreds on the beagle. “This is a great dog.”

Uno was the crowd favorite as he sauntered back and forth on the floor of Madison Square Garden, his tiny tail wagging.
