VIDEO: Old Stump Is Top Dog - 10-Year-Old Sussex Spaniel Wins Westminster Dog Show


This is pretty cool. Stump, a 10-year old Sussex, was just on the CBS Morning Show. He won this year's Westminster Dog Show, which is like the Super Bowl of dog shows. According to CBSNews.com:

A 10-year-old Sussex spaniel named Stump, a crowd favorite, won best in show -- the oldest winner in Westminster's 133-year history. Stump only came out of retirement last week and almost died in 2004 from a medical condition.

"He hasn't slowed down a bit," handler Scott Sommer said. "I thought it would be fun."

"He showed his heart out," Tietjen said. "He was everything you want."

The previous oldest winner at Westminster was an 8-year-old Papillon in 1999, and Stump was the first of his breed to capture the silver bowl.

Stump now goes on the stump -- taking the place of last year's winner, the beagle named Uno -- as the country's number one dog.

Here's a video from CBS that gives you a behind-the-scenes look at the show. Congratulations Stump, you old dog you!
