Stump the Sussex Spaniel wins the 133rd Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show in 2009
Super-Cute Gallery: It's All About Stump Now!

Last night this pup made all kinds of history being the first Sussex Spaniel and the oldest dog ever to win Westminster. I think Stump's rather stumptastic and my favorite thing about this pup is hands down (paws up) this trick. Doesn't he look like he's pretending to be a stump posing like that?!

As cute as the pup was in the show ring at MSG, his life hasn't been easy. Although he won the Sporting group when he last competed in 2004, he got a mysterious illness shortly thereafter – "his whole body completely quit" – and spent 19 days in a Texas A&M hospital before being miraculously cured. Since then he's just been hanging out and doing whatever he wants to do . . . and, last night, he wanted to win.
