Underdog wins Westminster Dog Show

Upset! For the first time in decades, a beagle took Best In Show at the Westminster Dog Show yesterday. The appropriately-named "Uno" came from behind* to edge out the terriers who usually dominate the upper award echelons. I bet Andrew Sullivan is happy today!

EDIT: *"Came from behind" is kind of bad wording, as commenter Dana tells me. Uno was the favourite to win Best In Show for a few days, so he didn't "come from behind" in this particular contest. I refer to the show in general and the fact that it's the first time a beagle was Top Dog in the show.
