Uno, a three-year-old beagle from South Carolina, has won best in show at the offensively useless Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show. It’s the first time Westminster has seen a beagle get the top prize, with a judge calling Uno “the most perfect beagle [he’s] ever seen.” Now that he’s won the biggest dog show in America, Uno’s owner says he’s finally going to stop fucking with him.
I am officially the biggest geek on the internets. Not only did I watch the show, I cheered for Uno to win and teared up when he did.
We beagle owners have issues.
No, now he is going to start fucking him…as in the pooche is going to get to bang all the bitches on the block! The snoopy’s getting laid, a lot!
I’m ambivalent about most animals (except the ones belonging to my friends) but that beagle is a real cutie. Congrats.
That is a damn fine looking beagle. It’s my secret wish to have a puppy but my husbo does not want any pets. If I could I’d like a beagle.
juju say someone gave it to you to watch but never came back for it
I luvs this doggie…cutie pie :-)
juju… you’re welcom to come over and play with Bart and Mr. Beaglesworth anytime. :)
I’d love to. and Mr. Beaglesworth is a really awesome name. I don’t know why but I love it when people ad a miss or mr to their pets name. I just imagine Mr. Beaglesworth has a monocle and top hat. I don’t know if he can work a cane.
looks like the beagle will be the new jack russell terrier
He really is an adorable dog. SM, I probably would have teared up, too. Embrace your animal sappiness. I do. :)
I have to say though, at first I read the last line of this story as “Now that he’s won the biggest dog show in America, Uno’s owner says he’s finally going to stop fucking him.” and thought there was tawdry Westminster gossip for a sec.
I watch Westminster just to see the pervy judges do the genitalia check. My mom calls me to make sure I am watching & we laugh and try to determin which judge is the biggest perv (that trophy usually goes to the lady judges, in case you were wondering). Yes, we are lame.
Mr. B’s full name is Charles Jerome Beaglesworth. Bart is Bartholomew J. Beaglebutt.
yes… we give our pets people names. They are big sweeties! (Said in my best doggie mama voice.)
I agree with the Mr./Mrs./Miss/Sir in front of a pet’s name making it exponentially more awesome.
I like the fact he started howling to the audience. Now there’s a REAL DOG, not some sort of fru-fru dog.
Sugar Magnolia: I don’t officially name my pets like that, but they almost always end up being called names like that. I named the cat to which I’m addicted “Cillian” (hard c, like k) because it’s the diminutive form of of the celtic word for war, and as a baby his M.O. for exploration was pretty much to pounce and play-attack everything in his path. Plant? “Have at you!” Shoe? “Have at you!” Sofa…
After putting serious thought into a good name to match his personality, he now gets called Mr. Cilly J. McFlufferson, or Admiral Furrybutt
Oh, an admiral. I’m sure he runs a tight ship and I would not mess with him.
Lily - his owner is part of NAMBLA - The North American Man-Beagle Love Association.
Phew. That other NAMBLA has a few issues. I like the NAMBLA who like cute and furry puppies.
My dog, Simba, thanks Mollygood for providing canine gossip. He feels it’s an area that is woefully under serviced by other news outlets. Kudos to you, Mollygood!
Lily, the kitty we had to have put to sleep last week (Homer Fries Junior… named by the child) thought he was a dog. He’d chase Bart around the house and tackle him in the corner… knock him out of the way and steal his food dish.
When I met my hubby he had a dog named Hilda Jane Cooley. He tried to tell me I couldn’t give our daughter the middle name Jayne because the dog already had it. I told him that Jayne was after my (deceased) mom… not his dog. I won that argument.
We have a beagle - her name is Betty Bobcat Beagle because my boyfriend runs heavy equipment and as a puppy, Betty would ride in his lap while he operated the Bobcat excavator. She’s always on the job with him.
When Uno started barking and howling on that show, she almost went through the screen to get him. Ah, Beagle love…
When they hold him up like that, he seriously looks like Underdog.
Sugar Magnolia - you’re not alone. I watched the whole thing and cheered him on, as well. As soon as the Golden Retriever was out of the running, I was all about that damn beagle FTW!!!!!!!
I love that little guy, especially the look on his face whenever the audience cheered for him. He was like, What, me?
SM: I too watched it. I can’t help it, I love dog shows. That should have gone on the secret thread from yesterday.
Cord, if you don’t like dog shows or have no interest in what they really mean, why post about them? Just leave them alone. Westminster means an awful lot to some of us.
The Westminster Dog Show is over 130 years old. Why would you call something with that kind of history offensive and useless? Do you really not understand what dog shows are all about? Do you really not understand what it means to just get to that level in the dog world?
My guess is you have no clue. So stick to your celebrity gossip and leave things you have no interest in alone.
It is a cute dog ya know Cord. We know your heart is made of little more than a hazelnut shells and lost hopes, but still, it’s a freakin beagle for Christs sake! Look at him!
I think Cord doesn’t eat animals because he secretly hates them.
You know Trevor, some cultures eat dog.
Some cultures eat other humans. What’s your point?
Trevor, I agree. As an owner of a show dog myself (afghan hound), Westminster is a big deal, a very big deal. Dog showing is one of the oldest sports and one of the very few where the entire family can participate. Westminster is clearly whe Superbowl of the Dog World..Don’t knock it till you try it!
Quite right, Emily. I am also the proud owner of a show dog - a Plott Hound. Since this is the first year my breed has been eligible to compete at this level, it meant more to me than any time before.
I am also a rescue. This event raised more than a half million dollars for homeless animals.
Useless and offensive? I think not.
