The last time we saw a living being attempt to emulate the mononymous cartoon Beagle icon, Snoopy, it was a defeated-looking Hoda Kotb on the Today show as part of the hosts’ coordinating Peanuts costumes–all of which were a bubbling puddle of ramshackle nightmare fuel–so how very refreshing for the internet to have bestowed upon us the adorable Bayley, a mini sheepadoodle! Bayley has recently gone viral for her uncanny resemblance to Joe Cool himself.
Most times when “best in show” makes a blip on my radar, it’s because I’m trying to decide which Real Housewives of New York wife I “hate least in show” while I “watch” (i.e. scroll my phone for the entire duration with the wives’ screeching as my background noise). Ramona Singer never wins because she’s always having to be flapping her jowls about how taking a casual dump on the floor isn’t a big deal or that she didn’t make a racist comment. In much more distinguished, innocent, and adorable flappy jowl news about someone who can shit on a floor and it not be an awkward thing–a dog named Trumpet strutted his majestic floppers all the way to victory, becoming the first bloodhound to ever win the coveted “Best in Show” at this year’s 146th Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show at the Lyndhurst Estate in Tarrytown, New York.

Nope, the living room is kitty cat territory; virtually impenetrable. And all it takes is just one lift of her little paw to prevent Brewster from even attempting to pass. Now that’s a cult level of control!
Wally Conron, the creator of the designer breed of the labradoodle, says he regrets what he’s done because he says most of them are either nuts or have hereditary problems. Wallys states that he created the hybrid breed for hypo-allergic reasons and now designer dogs have become a thing and he’s not here for it. It’s a good thing for Wally that labradoodles can’t read human or else he’d wake up to find his lawn covered with crazed labradoodle turds of revenge.
