Why do we love Westminster 2015 best in show winner Miss P? Let us count the ways ...

The top dog of the 139th Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show stands at just 15 inches, yet Miss P the beagle won over best in show judge David Merriam.

The competition was stiff, for sure, with returning 2013 second-place winner Swagger a crowd favorite, a Portuguese water dog with presidential connections as a cousin to Sunny Obama and a shih tzu owned by Patty Hearst among the final seven.

In winning, Miss P didn't just overcome expectations, but she stole our hearts too. (App users, click above to see why.)
