NEW YORK — Miss P, a beagle wagging her tail a mile a minute, won best in show Tuesday night at the 139th Westminster Kennel Club at Madison Square Garden. The 4-year-old is related to Uno, who in 2008 became the only other beagle to win at the nation's most prominent dog show.

Miss P beat out Matisse, a Portguese water dog that was the top-winning male in show dog history. Judge David Merriam also picked her in the best-of-seven final ring over an old English sheepdog that clearly was the crowd favorite, a standard poodle, a Shih tzu, an English springer spaniel and a Skye terrier.

The Skye finished second.
