Championship Show May 2nd 2009
Judge - Mrs Elaine Pearson (UK) - SUNDOW
A big thankyou to all the members of the SBT Club of Queensland
inviting me to judge their Championship Show.
And thankyou to all exhibitors for giving me the opportunity to go over their dogs
them we wouldn’t be having dog shows.
Well done to the committee for a well organised first class show,
had a great time and felt at east all day.
thanks to Hayley and Graham for their excellent stewarding.
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay with Nikki and Byron who took me to
Irwins Zoo and my first encounter of crocodiles.
Also thankyou to Suzie, Pat the lovely Mackenzie who showed me some lovely sites of
and the Coast, including me first ever “RODEO”. It was a long
journey, but well worth it. And I would do it all again.
Best Wishes to the SBT Club of Queensland Inc and wish you years of success
