“He’s got that It factor” says a story in the October issue of Oprah Magazine. Martha Beck (“O’s resident life coach”) is writing about Uno, Westminster’s Best In Show Beagle from 2008, in a story about charisma.
“Whatever he’s doing – striding past paparazzi, greeting a cheering crowd, or licking a reporter – Uno the Beagle embodies pure charisma,” she writes. “…I’ve come to believe that there’s no better way to amp up your charisma than to follow his example.”

A new state-of-the-art USD 10 million Nestlé Purina Event Center was officially opened in the United States this week.
The 84,000-square-foot facility – based at Gray Summit in the Midwestern American state of Missouri – first began construction in April 2009.
Designed for dog shows, the center features a 45,000-square-foot Great Hall, a 13,500-square-foot benching and grooming area, banquet area, catering services and visitor parking, including 74 full service Recreational Vehicle (RV) hookups.
The red carpet event was attended by six champion dogs who each triumphed at the annual Westminster Kennel Club dog shows from 2001-2010. The prestigious canine event had crowned various Nestlé Purina Pro Plan-fed dogs as winners in each of their categories – including a 5-year-old Beagle, Uno (pictured), the 2008 Westminster Best in Show Winner.
