The Westminster Dog Show is full of people who take themselves, and their dogs, way too seriously. It’s the Super Bowl for people that don’t watch the Super Bowl.
While the Best In Show category is the beauty pageant of the event, the obstacle course is the equivalent of the dog Olympics. It features the most finely tuned canine athletes from around the globe as they demonstrate their world-class speed and agility.
Except for Mia the Beagle.
Mia isn’t blessed with great speed, agility, and she isn’t really into listening to directions. She also looks kind of old.
That didn’t stop her from taking on the Westminster obstacle course, sort of. It’s better described as a casual stroll through the dog park.
Mia didn’t follow the “course” either. Aside from not hitting the marks, she also stopped several times to look around at the crowd and even lick herself. Aw. She’s also not very fast. Who cares?
Here’s Mia’s incredible run. She’s the real MVP:
Mia the beagle does whatever Mia the beagle wants.
