We interrupt this week’s scheduled post for Best in Show

February 15, 2012

The dust mop wins!Competing against much larger and speedier breeds, Malachy, a diminutive 11-pound Pekingese, won this year’s Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show, sending out a message to the world that the Pekingese is indeed the superior species.

Hyacinth, the author of When the Monarchy Crumbles, is also a Pekingese, but unlike Malachy, she is a bitch with an eating disorder, tipping the Bean scales at 22 pounds.

The Bean family is delighted to hear that the Pekingese has thus been recognized, and we send our heartfelt congratulations to Malachy and his family.  And we pray fervently that after the hullabaloo has died down, Malachy can get a much-deserved haircut.

Well congratulations to Malachy! And his owner.
When will Hyacinth enter the competition?

I saw Malachy on a morning show – the owner NEVER STOPPED BRUSHING that dog. The show host even pointed it out! Serious haircut needed. 🙂

In keeping with Ally’s comment, I saw Malachy on The View, and the owner stated he was NOT going to cut the dog’s hair. Long live Queen Hyacinth!
xoxo your BBFF, Sandra

Had to go look at Hyacinth’s picture again and remembered something I keep forgetting to mention. Papa Bean looks an awful lot like Joshua Jackson. 🙂
