And The Winner Is...


Westminster Kennel Club's 2009 Best In Show.

This ten-year old Sussex spaniel became the oldest dog to ever win the title.
Just for fun, he came out of retirement for this year's Westminster. In 2004 he took top honors of the Sporting Group. Then, nearly died shortly thereafter of a mysterious illness. He truly is the come back dog!

But before you go looking to get one of these pups, please consider a shelter dog first. Pedigree brand dog food sponsored the coverage of Westminster and they are matching donations for placement and care of shelter dogs. Check out their site
As well as local shelters, there are many organizations helping place homeless animals. Best Friends, I have mentioned before.
Who knows? Maybe you will find your "Stump" at one of these.
