The first beagle to win top honors at the Westminster Kennel Club dog show was Uno in 2008. His grandniece Miss P followed in his pawprints Tuesday night.

Following her "best in show" triumph, the 4-year-old, British Columbian canine will have a full day today, The Associated Press reports, including "appearances on morning TV shows, a meeting with Donald Trump, lunch at prominent Manhattan restaurant Sardi's and a walk-on part in the Broadway hit musical 'Kinky Boots.'
