Is it just me, or do hounds basically get ignored in these all-breed dog shows? I remember hearing how unusual it was for a hound to win best in show at Westminster - and even the best of the hound group is usually, as someone else mentioned, one of those "hairy" hounds and not any of the beagle/foxhound/harrier type (although I think a basset was best hound a few years ago). What gives? Don't they all know beagles (and their bigger cousins) are the absolute BEST!!!
