With storms approaching, we were lucky to be able to show outdoors at the Canine Stewards Show. Our kind judge, Mrs Daphne Zipperer (Qld) even stopped her judging when Lhasa Apsos were about to enter the ring as it had started raining. We managed to finish the group judging without further showers with Tommy winning another Runner Up Best In Group. Thank you to our considerate judge for the day. After all the work in preparing a coat for the show, no one wants to get their dog wet in the ring.
Another nice win for Tommy (Grand Ch Kailasa Affair Oth Heart) at the Non Sporting Dog Club's Championship Show at the beginning of May; Dog Challenge, Best of Breed and Runner Up Best In Show. Thank you to judge Mrs Roslyn Seare (QLD).
It was a nice surprise to receive an invitation from Dogs West for King (Chic Choix The Sunking) to represent the Non Sporting group as the point score winner, at the Top Open Show Dog competition, held at the Western Classic.
My little 'star" Eevie (Ch Kailasa Wish Upon A Star (AI) ) had a nice win on the same weekend as our Contest Of Winners. She was not only Best of Breed under Mr G Missen (Victoria), but also Best In Group.
For the second year in a row, Tommy (Grand Ch Kailasa Affair Oth Heart) qualified as one of the state's top dogs to compete at the prestigious Contest Of Winners. The invitation only event is open to the top four place winners in each group with an extra four within the next place getters to make up a field of 32. For the second year in a row, Tommy also made it through to the final round; himself and the ultimate winner. I am very proud that he progressed so far in this "knock out" competition.
