Going to the dogs

THE Tweed Valley Canine Club is hosting a three-day canine spectacular at Murwillumbah Showground this Friday, Saturday and Sunday, March 16-18.

The club's All Breeds Championship Dog Show commences daily at 9am (NSW) and admission is free to see 550 of our cuddly canine cousins go through their paces in the judging ring.

Such is its reputation, the show has attracted highly-respected international judges to run their eyes over the dogs.

Sitting in the judges box adjudicating on the breeds will be Simon Sim (Philippines), Ms L Clothithada (Thailand), Barbara Hyde (New Zealand) and Mr G Doyle (NZ) who will be working hard over the three days selecting their winners.

Breeds being judged are from seven groups - Toy, Terrier, Gundog, Hound, Working Dog, Utility and Non-Sporting.

Many beautiful breeds of all shapes and sizes will create quite a spectacle when they work-out in the rings.

Those attending the show not only get to watch these magnificent creatures go through their paces, but also avail themselves of a wide variety of foods and refreshments and the opportunity to pick up dog products at the right prices.

The Tweed River Canine Club is extremely community-minded and promotes responsible dog ownership.

For any further information, phone Fran Kinnear on 02 6672 1773 or 0417 755 455.
