We are excited to have three imported judges for this event: Mrs. Noelene Pretorius will be judging Agility; Mrs. Yvonne Taentzer will be judging Obedience, Dog Jumping and CGC; and Mrs. Gillian Houghton will be judging breed.
The weather was sunny but quite a tad colder as winter is approaching.
A wonderful person who comes to train two classes every Sunday when there are no shows: The 8 o’clock class is for the trainers and the 9 o’clock class she takes the advanced handler and their dogs.
She is no member of a club, just does this for the love of dogs and their performances. When there are shows being held at the club, she still comes and supports her pupils.
Last Sunday 21 May was Pam’s 80th birthday and it was felt that this should be celebrated. After her 9 – 10 class she came onto the verandah and was surprised by her special arranged “birthday table” with special made cake for her and presents from her pupils and friends.
Foto’s of Pam cutting her cake and her pupils standing around singing happy birthday to her.
