Uno the Beagle is Numero Uno! Wins Best in Show at Westminster Dog Show

For the first time ever, a beagle is the top dog. Uno the beagle won the top overall award, Best in Show, at the 2008 Westminster Dog Show at New York's Madison Square Garden.

In the 100 or so years of the Westminster Dog Show, this is the first time that a beagle has taken the top prize.

Uno, a three-year-old beagle, received a standing ovation from the sellout crowd upon being announced as the winner.

And Uno seemed to enjoy the attention, barking up a storm for the crowd. The Snoopy dog beat out two poodles, a top Sealyham terrier, a Weimaraner, an Australian shepherd, and a Akita.
