The 2021 Westminster Kennel Club show competition has been postponed from Madison Square Garden to mid-June at the Lyndhurst, New York.
Like what it has been for every game, there is a season, a time of the year when fans mark their favorite occasions.
While June, isn’t that so far, it implies that the best in a show for dogs is just around the corner for the fans. The 12th and 13th of June are the dates when Westminster Dog show fan will snuggle up in the lounge chair with their precious pooch to watch the Super Bowl of Dogs, one of the best and popular dog show not only in America but around the world.
However, for this year things will be tight for the fans to get the best-in-show they want due to the current world pandemic. It is the same reason why the show was relocated from Madison Square Garden to an off-site domain about 25 miles north of New York City.
As fans wait for the bell to ring for their best show, it is time to go through some memories through the years. Today, we consider one breed; the beagle.
Beagles instinctively defend their owners and other relatives. They are made to make great watchdogs for children. Anyway, their sporty and friendly nature doesn’t allow them to be decent gatekeeper dogs.
The first beagle to win in the Westminster Dog show
Beagles had been in the Westminster doghouse all the time. Regardless of how adorable poor old Snoopy hadn’t won the incredible award under any circumstances.
That changed in 2008 when perhaps the best show dog of all time emerged. The beagle god named Uno was also a three-shadowed bunch of characters.
No Beagle had won the Westminster Kennel Club’s prestigious dog show until Uno satisfied old-fashioned Snoopy and barked into the prized silver bowl in 2008. He was unmistakably the group’s first pick, and fans celebrated when he was selected, giving the 15-inch champ a standing ovation.
From a president to marches to stadiums, Uno enchanted admirers wherever it snaked.
Unfortunately, Uno, who turned out to be perhaps the most famous pooch to venture into a dog show ring, kicked the bucket. He was 13 years old.
Uno died Thursday on the 200-section country farm he lived on in Austin, Texas. He was healthy until last month when the malignancy progressed.
Beagle in the last show
Siba, a standard poodle, was named Best in Show at the 144th version of the Westminster Kennel Club dog show in New York.
Siba was examined over seven finalists in front of a cheering group in Madison Square Garden.
It was for the fifth time a standard poodle has won Best in Show and the first run since 1991.
Another huge winner came from Colorado. A beagle named Candy from Boulder.
The Beagle’s disposition is portrayed as optimistic, interesting and an incredible humorist: The handler said, the dog makes her laugh every day.
