Miss P, the Beagle, wins Westminster

February 19th, 2015

“Miss P” is now the most well-known Beagle since Peanuts’ Snoopy.  Last night in the 139th Westminster Kennel Club dog show the four-year-old 15″ Beagle from British Columbia took top honors, following in the paw prints of her great uncle, “Uno”, who won in 2008.  “Miss P” beat more than 2,700 other dogs to become only the second Beagle and the 36th female to win the prestigious show.
