Well, we've been singing beagle's praises for years, but I'm glad the West Minster Kennel Club finally caught on.
This is my Super Bowl. West Minster Kennel Club Dog Show has been on the last two nights. It is so fun to watch and this year was extra-enjoyable, as one of the very best breeds won Best in Show. The Thurman-a-riffic BEAGLE!
You can read the article in the NY Times.
MY best in show pick will always be our beloved Thurman Allan Cole. He passed away, but he will be a part of our pack forever.

*Please, always RESCUE dogs, cats and other animal friends you bring home. There are countless buddies already out there who need a home, and most breeders and pet stores are less than ethical, not to mention, kind. Rescuing and adopting is a charitable and green act in itself. What could be more earth-friendly than taking care of animals?
In honor of Thurman, a true animal rescue success story, here is an animal rescue link list that I will continue to add to.
-PetFinder by state
-BARC Shelter in Brooklyn, NY
If you make a donation to the Beagle Rescue or the ASPCA, please let me know to receive a free Enderby gift.
