Pointer Snags Canine Beauty Queen Title

The Westminster Kennel Club crowned a new top dog on Tuesday night in New York. Carlee, a German shorthaired pointer, earned the coveted Best in Show title, edging out a Norwich terrier and a Welsh corgi. NPR's Mike Pesca examines the debate over the value of beauty in today's society by looking through the lens of a dog show.
