We thought they were all equally adorable – insert awww – but there could only be one top dog at Westminster.

Congrats, Miss P!

The beagle from the hound group ran off with the prestigious Best in Show title Tuesday at the 139th annual Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show.

Miss P (formal name: Ch Tashtins Lookin For Trouble) beat out six other fierce furballs: the Patty Hearst co-owned Rocket (toy group), Flame (non-sporting group), Swagger (herding group), Liz (sporting group), Matisse (working group) and Charlie (terrier group).
