Today’s Montgomery County Kennel Club show was nearly picture perfect. Everything, but the weather presented the ideal day for Terrier lovers. In the end the few drops of rain just made the tweeds, caps, & boots more authentic.
AKC's Number One Terrier, the Wirehaired Fox Terrier, AfterAll Painting the Sky, skipped the festivities as her breeder was judging. However, handler Gabriel Rangel handled one of Sky’s kennelmates to the most prestigious award in the Terrier world, Best In Show at Montgomery County.
The Lakeland Terrier, GCH CH Iron Van Foliny Home, took home the Group One, while the country’s Number Two Terrier, the Scottish Terrier, GCH CH Lomondview Clementina, took the second place, the Airedale, GCH CH Joval Angel’s Whisper, finished third, and the Smooth Fox Terrier, GCH CH Wedigit Paparazzi, took home the fourth place.
The Belgian born Aston had a substantial European career, capturing French and World titles before coming to the US. Although Aston has won multiple specialties and Terrier groups, it’s safe to say that today’s win is Aston’s biggest. Congratulations to breeders De Munter Rony & Uiterwijk Dieny, owner Victor Malzoni Jr, and handler Gabriel Rangel.
