Miss P, the grandniece of Uno (the first Beagle to win Best in Show at the Westminster Dog Show in 2008), took the prestigious prize last night. Her full name is Ch Tashtins Looking for Trouble. She beat out winners from six other categories.

The finalists for Best in Show competing against Miss P were: Swagger (Old English sheepdog), Rocket (Shih Tzu), Matisse (Portuguese Water Dog), Liz (English Springer Spaniel), and Flame (Poodle). Many thought Swagger, a favorite of the crowd, was expected to win.

Matisse is the cousin of President Obama’s dog, Sunny. For the third time in a row, Matisse won in the Work Group category. Miss P also took the prize from Rocket, the Shih Tzu co-owned by kidnapped heiress Patty Hearst. Rocket won in the Toy Group category.
