2008 Westminster Winners: Hound Group

The first group we saw at the big show was the Hound group. Its members include the "scent" hounds; these pooches are typically low-to-the-ground with an acute sense of smell like the Basset Hound. Also in the hound group are those that are considered "sight" hounds and use an incredible speed and stamina to relentlessly run down their quarry! It was a great group to watch (including my über-cutie fave) . . . and the results are in! Unless you've got it stored on TiVo (and you don't want to see who won just yet),

.

Hooray for the 15-in. Beagle! As the announcers kept referring to him, this was the "big Beagle," as opposed to the 13-in. variety. A favorite of mine from the AKC/Eukanuba National Championship show, I was über-happy to see "Uno" capture . . . well, número uno in the Hound group at Westminster, too!

The top placing pups in this group were:

  1. Beagle (15-in.): Ch K-Run's Park Me In First. Male born May 5, 2005.
  2. Dachshund (Longhaired): Ch Solo's Drag-Queen SL. Female born Oct. 27, 2003.
  3. Harrier: Ch Downhome Family Tradition. Male born Feb. 13, 2005.
  4. Petit Basset Griffon Vendéen: Ch Afterglow Ebeneezer. Male born Dec. 24, 2004.
