Uno, a beautiful beagle, became the 2008 Westminster Dog Show champion and the first beagle ever to win Best in Show.
Uno, was one of 2600 dogs to compete in the Westminster Dog Show. The field which included the competitors below, was narrowed down to 7 finalist.
The nation's new top dog was crowned with a standing ovation from the sold-out crowd at Madison Square Garden. A true champ, he wasted no time stepping right into his winning bowl.
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.
Snoopy would be pleased. His breed, long passed over for glory, had finally triumphed.
