Mia the Beagle Steals the (Dog) Show

The Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show was held this week and wrapped up yesterday. Some dog named Rumor won the whole thing, which led to much delighted punning among journalists (“Rumor has it!”) but you’re not here to read about that. You’re here to read about Mia, the adorably distractible beagle.

Mia’s run in the Masters Agility contest has gone viral because — well, see for yourself.

Mia showed that she is in fact pretty agile, but perhaps not the most focused of dogs.

Mia’s clearly trying, but she can’t help herself — she needs to do dog stuff, like sniffing.

Including sniffing herself.

In the end Mia gets belly rubs because she did her best. Good dog!
