Little Beagle, don't fail me now...

Ever since Paul & I talked about the possibility of getting a dog one day, I have been smitten with anything that has to do with hounds, the Beagles to be exact. That is the dog that we will (eventually) bring into our small furry family (I bet Poppy & Beasley will be all too thrilled about that). We have a name picked out for him (since the name we picked is totally for a boy, Steagle Colbeagle, don't steal our name, it would kill me) & at this point, it is only a matter of when (we, number one, need a house with a big enough yard for him to play in and I want a pure breed which means I need to shell out big $$ for that kinda thing, which I am totally willing to do).

I have been watching the 2008 Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show on USA all night. As it turns out, my little beagle won Best Hound group. He moved on to the Best In Show round, but he has some stiff and tough competition. Apparently, a Beagle has not won Best In Show ever in the 132 years of the show and the Beagle has not won the best Hound group since the 1930's either. Anyways, I am sitting here as the judge looks at the Toy group, the Sporting group, etc. I am crossing my fingers for him. The beagle they picked is to die for! (oh, and his name is "Uno", 10 bonus points for cuteness!)


Uno the Beagle won best in show!!! Congrats, little beagle, I knew you would make me proud :) Isn't he the cutest little thing ever?
