Still Number One!

Its been quite a while since I updated Uno's blog that I felt it was time with the 2 year anniversary of his BIG win at Madison Square Garden. It seems Uno is still a crowd favorite no matter where he goes and his fans sure haven't forgotten about him!

Recently Uno was seen in NYC at the "AKC Meet the Breeds" spectacular along with his successor "Stump" the sussex spaniel. Also, On his recent visit to New York City, Uno, got to match Best In Show credentials with Hollywood's version of Westminster.

Michael McKean, who played Shih Tzu owner Stefan Vanderhoof in the hit movie, "Best in Show," met up with the famous Beagle at the Music Box theatre, where Michael is performing on stage in "Superior Donuts." In addition to his "Best In Show" role, Michael has a long list of credits, among them the role of Lenny in the long-running "LaVerne and Shirley."

Look who showed up on the front page of the St. Louis Post Dispatch today (September 24)? That's right, it's Uno, Westminster's 2008 Best In Show-winning Beagle. The illustration was part of a story about the St. Louis Cardinals needing just one more win to clinch first place in Major League Baseball's National League Central Division.

I'll be attending WKC this year and hope to have more to update about Our boy "Uno" in the weeks to come.
