Beagle is truly numero Uno at Westminster

February 13, 2008


— America has a new Snoop doggie.

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.

The nation's new top dog was clearly the fan favorite, and drew a standing ovation from the sold-out crowd at Madison Square Garden when he was picked.

Uno got right into the act, jumping up on handler Aaron Wilkerson and confirming his other title: noisiest in show. Years from now, he'll be known for the "ah-roo" heard 'round the ring.

The only dog consistently listed among America's most popular breeds for nearly 100 years, a beagle had never won in the 100 times Westminster picked a winner.

If that judge had pointed at Remy or Vikki a riot would've broken out at the Garden and I would've thrown my whisky through a brand-new HD flat screen. Yes, Multi, the best dog won! Now take Uno out and hunt a rabbit over him as a reward.
