A four-year-old beagle from the B.C. Interior has won “Best in Show” at the Westminster dog show.
Miss P, owned by Enderby, B.C., resident Lori Crandlemire, took top honours Tuesday night at the Westminster Kennel Club Show at Madison Square Garden.
She triumphed in the final best-of-seven round, beating out competitors such as an Old English sheepdog, a Skye terrier and a Portuguese water dog.
The dog, the grand-niece of a previous “Best in Show” winner, and her owner had earlier claimed the top honour in the hound category on Monday night.
A total of 2,700 other canines from 15 countries competed at the event, known worldwide as the Super Bowl of dog shows.
