"Stump", a 10 year old Sussex Spaniel, won Best in Show tonight at the Westminster Dog show on USA network. The oldest dog to ever win this distinguished title, Stump is an inspiration to everyone who is long on years (and ears...in Stump's case) but always young at heart.
Stump competed against other gorgeous dogs that included a Standard Poodle, a Giant Schnauzer, a Scottish Terrier and a black herding dog with long dreadlocks that looked sort of like a sheep.
Special cheers for the sponsor Pedigree, which advertised a charitable website where people can give money to help shelter dogs. Go and donate so someday every dog can have a loving home!
