Woof! (Which means "I'm going to Disneyland!" in dog)
Somewhere, someplace, Snoopy cries tears of joy. For the first time in the 132-year history of the über-popular Westminster Dog Show, a beagle is the king of the canines. His name is Uno, he's of the 15-inch variety (who knew there were two different types of beagles), and while he fought against the force of history (he was an "underdog" - get it?), the buzz in Madison Square Garden was that he was the pooch to beat this time around. And he was.
Of course, Uno's landmark victory sets the stage for more groundbreaking events as the year goes on. Now watch Barack Obama get elected president and, of course, the Cubs win the World Series. Let's just hope Uno didn't use, er, anything extra to get to the top - you know, like HGH or enhanced kibble. That would be a doggone shame.
