Uno, the first beagle to win at the Westminster Kennel Club Show February 12, barked in the opening of the NASDAQ this morning.
CNBC’s Rebecca Jarvis got to interview Uno and his handler, Aaron Wilkerson. So does America’s #1 dog use any of the products produced by NASDAQ traded companies? U-NO, he’s on Pro Plan, which Wilkerson says gives him his shiny coat. (Pro Plan is made by Purina which is owned by Swiss company Nestle.)
Uno’s real name is K-Run’s Park Me in First. With a name like that, you’d expect him to make history as the first beagle to win Best in Show at the Westminster Kennel Club. Uno was born on May 5, 2005 (time unknown) in Belleville, Illinois. Uno has the Moon and Mercury in Aries, reinforcing his need to let everyone know he’s top dog! Aries energy thrives in competitive sport and jumping head first into whatever they do. Uno scores in the charm department too. His Sun and Venus are in earthy Taurus. People adore Uno because he’s the kind of dog you can play and cuddle with – not the usual froufrou breeds that win the dog show year after year. Taurus rules money, so Uno would especially enjoy visiting a stock exchange. Uno’s Sun squares glamorous Neptune, ruler of film. Uno is very photogenic and no doubt will get several lucrative advertising/sponsorship deals.
As the saying goes, “the stars were aligned” Tuesday evening at Madison Square Garden. The February 6 solar eclipse was exactly aligned with Uno’s natal Neptune, conferring a magical aura about Uno that proved irresistible to the judges. Jupiter in Capricorn is harmonizing now with Uno’s Taurus Sun, bestowing a big award. The Sun in Aquarius was challenging Uno’s Venus, reinforcing the judges and audiences attraction to him. And finally, the Moon was in Taurus that night, by Wednesday its First Quarter phase was exactly aligned with Uno’s Sun.
Snoopy is beaming with pride.
