Best Of The Best

Back home after spending a long weekend in Denver. One of the things I did while there was watch the first half of the Westminster Dog Show. Last night, after I got back home, I watched the second half and was pleased when a Sussex Spaniel named "Stump" won Best Of Show. First, because he is a sporting dog (my dogs' category) and, second, because he is ten years old.

His winning Best Of Show would be equivalent to Helen Mirren winning the Miss Universe Pageant.

Which would be great, too, now that I think about it.
