A TERRIFIC terrier has followed in her family's illustrious paw steps after picking up a second placed finish at Crufts.
Airdale Terrier Flo, led by 70-year-old owner Janet Terry, of Old Windsor, was awarded a prestigious rosette at the premier show event in the pet calendar on Sunday.
The three-year-old canine, who has already won three 'best in breed' awards in competitions across the country this year, finished second in the Good Citizenship Class at the NEC in Birmingham.
Ms Terry, of St Luke's Road, said: "Flo's mother Martha won the best Airdale puppy at Crufts in 2006 and her grandmother Abigail has also won lots of best in breed competitions!
"I've been entering dogs into show competitions for more than 20 years now."
Flo completed her bronze, silver and gold certificates in the Kennel Club Good Citizen Dog Scheme this year.
She was judged as best in her class for dogs who have completed the scheme.
Ms Terry, who went along to the event with 37-year-old son Grant, added: "It's always a lovely day. Everyone likes dogs so people all get along.
"Dog lovers go along to see the pets looking their best and I was placed at the end of one of the aisles so the dog got a lot of attention with everyone walking past."
Ms Terry has been attending Crufts with her pooches for 16 years.
