Well, what can one say about Angus? Apart from the fact that he is Sarah-Jane & Mojo's litter brother.
His show career has been exceptional from the word "go". He has won many many Best Puppy's, Best Puppy in Group, also Best Puppy in Show , placed numerous times in the Terrier Group, placed in the final line-up for Best in Show and yes he has also won that coveted award "Best In Show" All Breeds. An award not attained by an Airedale since 1975.
He was Top Winning Airedale in 10 years in 2003, and this year he is once again top Airedale, and I feel he can only get better as time goes on. Airedales only reach their full maturity at aged 2-3 years, and Angus has proved this, as he is now only maturing into an adult dog. He was 3 in January this year.(2005)
Many people do not like Angus and wonder how he gained so many placings. But over a 2 year period, nearly 200 Judges, as many shows, surely cant all be wrong??
Also a big Thank You to his owner/handler Pat De Coning for campaigning him as much as she has.
Also not forgetting Dani Pera who has done a sterling job with his grooming.
