WATCH Beagle Miss P Wins Westminster for Best in Show, Beating Brilliantly Coiffed Breeds

A top dog was named Tuesday at Madison Square Garden, where more than 2,711 dogs representing 192 breeds and varieties competed for awards at the Westminster Kennel Club Show. Miss P, a beagle from British Columbia, won the top honor, Best in Show.

The special canine didn't win any prize money, but there's rich breeding potential and a lifetime of prestige that comes with the title.

A 15-inch beagle from Canada born in 2011, Miss P won the Hound Group honors Monday. She was up against a shih tzu owned by Parry Hearst, a standard poodle, and an English sheepdog for top honors Tuesday.

The dog's registered name is “Tashtins Lookin For Trouble.” The owners are Eddie Dziuk and Lori Crandlemire and Kaitlyn Crandlemire.

Miss P will enjoy a meal at Sardi's per tradition Thursday, and possible belly rubs tonight.

At 4, Miss P is a grand-niece of Uno, the immensely popular hound that barked and bayed his way to becoming the only previous beagle to win at the nation's most prominent dog show in 2008.

Miss P, however, didn't let out a peep in the ring.

"She is a princess," handler Will Alexander said.
