Dogs are intense athletes.

The 141st Westminster Dog Show just took place in New York City. Along with an extensive judging to determine which dog is Best in Show, agility and obedience competitions also took place to showcase the dogs' true talents.

The stakes were high during the Masters Agility Competition on Saturday, where dogs are evaluated based on speed of their run through as well as on how clean the run through was. This is, after all, the Westminster Dog Show, which means the competition is at the highest of levels. Every dog was on his or her A game.

And then, there was Mia the distracted beagle.

It's clear Mia really wanted to do her best at the agility course, but she also just wanted to be a dog and do dog things. With her floppy ears and cute little tail, you really can't blame her.

Even if Mia didn't win the competition, we're pretty sure she won favorite pup for everyone watching. The audience roared with laughter, and cheered loudly when she finished the course. Even the commentators were enthralled, saying, "That was a delightfully entertaining run."

You are Best in Show in our book, Mia.
