The Illinois Beagle who made history at the Westminster Show is barking his swan song. Uno the Beagle is retiring from the dog show business. 2008 has been a big year for the canine, whom his trainer calls "the merry little hound." Uno was named best in show by the Westminster Kennel Club in February, making him the first Beagle ever to take the title.

Wednesday was declared "Uno the Beagle Day" in Illinois.
