"Nice little friends to have with you in the wide open spaces." The man and his dogs walk up a snowy hillside. They walk across a little bridge which spans a small stream in front of a viaduct.

    "The Chief Prize Winner, Angles Manai, ("Kismet"), weighs 15 stone and will stand up for himself anywhere!" The dog stands on his hind legs with his front paws on his master's shoulders. The dog is huge! "With a girth of 46 inches, a height of 34 inches and scaling over 200 lbs, he's a real monster." M/S of the master measuring his champion with a tape measure.
