Beagle Wins Best in Show

Uno, Westminster Kennel Club's 2008 Best In Show dog, is our hero! A Beagle winning Best in Show? Uno represents not just the under dog, he represents "every dog." He's the champion of the common dog and a savior to homeless animals and animal shelters everywhere. Sure, previous winners were great dogs, Bichons, Newfies, Spaniels, Poodles, etc., but let's face it, animal shelters don't have an abundance of homeless toy breeds or gentle giants. Shelters do however, on almost any given day, have at least one Beagle or Beagel mix awaiting a new home. Let's hope that Uno works his way into the hearts of dog-lovers everywhere and starts a new fad that helps to reduce the number of unwanted Beagles in our animal shelters!

Just a little fun fact, the beagle was the second most adopted breed at the Arlington shelter in 2007 -- most likely due to the shear number of beagles at the shelter last year!
