Stump, a 10-Year-old Sussex Spaniel is 'Best in Show'


A senior canine is the nation's top pooch!

A 10-year-old (isn't that 70 in dog years?) Sussex spaniel named Stump was named "Best in Show" at the Westminster Kennel Club dog show last night at New York's Madison Square Garden. He's also the oldest dog ever to be given the honor in the show's history. It was also the first time that a Sussex spaniel had won the prize. Stump's owner only decided to show him a week ago.

Watch the report, AFTER THE JUMP...

  1. I myself was rooting for Spirit but my sister kept IM'ing me that she thought that while Stump wasn't the most photogenic, he had more charisma. And when he won, I thought, that is how it should be. Way to go Stump!

  2. Old cats and dogs like Stump stay cute and adorable no matter how old they get! They are always loveable babies!!!
