HAGERSTOWN - Eddie Dziuk began raising beagles 30 years ago, when he was a student at St. Maria Goretti High School. Now, he's co-owner of Uno - the beagle who recently was named Best in Show at the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show, held Feb. 11-12 at New York's Madison Square Garden. Uno is the first beagle to win Best in Show honors. For people like Dziuk who show dogs, winning Best in Show at Westminster is "everybody's ultimate dream. I feel I worked at it a long, long time," Dziuk said in a telephone interview.
