Audrey Knight Memorial Championship Show
13th December 2008
Judge: Mrs Celeste Trimble – STONEHEART (VIC)

I would like to say thank you to the Staffordshire Bull Terrier Club of Queensland and their committee and to all the exhibitors who gave me the privilege to judge their wonderful dogs. My family and I took this opportunity to holiday in Queensland for the week, starting at the Gold Coast and finishing at Alan and Denise Payne’s house
whom I would like to thank for their kindness, hospitality and showing us a great time.
I would also like to thank Simon who introduced our son Connor to the Queensland crocodiles. I will remember this show for the rest of my life.
Thank you so much to each and every one of you for such wonderful memories.
I found the overall condition of dogs good, as where mouths except for a few cases on inverted canines and overshot mouths, a great positive for our breed.
