The university says Beau won over the judges Monday with a winning personality, an easygoing manner and good looks. Judge Nadia Valentine says that she chose Beau because of his "squishy" appearance. He lives in Urbandale with owners T.J. and Angela McKenzie and their three children. The two McKenzies attended the private college. The English bulldog is the Drake mascot. Beau was crowned in front of 3,000 spectators. It was the 40th contest and served as the unofficial start to this week's Drake Relays track meet. The athletic competition gets underway Wednesday with the men's decathlon and the women's heptathlon. =========================================================== Clients are reminded: (i) to check the terms of their licence agreements for use of content outside news programming and that further advice and assistance can be obtained from the AP Archive on: Tel +44 (0) 20 7482 7482 Email: info@aparchive.com(ii) they should check with the applicable collecting society in their Territory regarding the clearance of any sound recording or performance included within the AP Television News service (iii) they have editorial responsibility for the use of all and any content included within the AP Television News service and for libel, privacy, compliance and third party rights applicable to their Territory.
