Encouraging year

 ALL aspects of the world of dogs in 1962 were encouraging. Many clubs exceeded 1000 dog mark, although generally entries were slightly down at a few of the bigger shows particularly those conducted on Saturdays. The calendar was full with more than 292 obedience tests, championship shows and non-slip retrieving trials.

In the early shows, Dr. and Mrs Cramer’s, Ch. Myoene Prima Donna made a good start with Best In Show Awards and looked as though she may be a contender for the Sunday Telegraph ‘Oscar’; but her wins tapered off, when she was withdrawn from the show -ring for maternal duties.

At the inaugural show of the Garden Island kennel Club Danmar Kennels Cocker Spaniel Ch. Pondongrove Lochranza Ploughman (imp) was declared Best Exhibit of the 1231 dogs exhibited and his prominence for this title at many other leading shows made him a top favourite. Some of his most important shows were at Castle Hill, Parramatta K.C. Gun Dog Society and Manly K.C.

However, while he was going so strongly at these fixtures Mr. T. Knight, with his dachshund Ch. Leura Liberace, was campaigning fearlessly at many other City and country shows. During the year he accumulated 22 best in shows and nine runner-up to best in shows making a total for this 26 month old dog of 26 Best in Shows and 14 runner ups.

Meanwhile the outstanding Pekingese and record Best in Show winner Tientsin kennels Ch. Suiyan Aladdin, still was accumulating awards.

The Sydney Royal, judged by Terrier expert and leading English All Breeds judge, Mr. Leo Wilson saw many of our outstanding dogs enter the ring on Easter Monday for the Best Of Group judging.

Among those that got through were Ch. Leura Liberace, R. and Mrs carpenter’s Welsh Corgi Ch. Chetwyn Merthytidvill (the 1961 Best in show winner) and Ch. Suiyan Aladdin, who finally made best male exhibit in show.

The winner of this champion of champions award was Mr. K. Allens Wire Haired Fox Terrier, Ch. Foxwyre Flash Gem. This classical bitch who is going on for four years old had not been the most prominent of winners, but had gained maturity from maternal duties.

It was 24 years since the breed, had won the coveted award at the Royal. Her young owner is most popular among other exhibitors. He is most unassuming and this win climaxed many years of mixed luck in the show-ring. From this win she went on to win any more best in show awards at our biggest shows, including Best Opposite Sex at the record Melbourne Royal.

Some of her leading top awards were at Sutherland K.C., Fairfield K.C., Toy and general, N.S.W. Women’s club and St. Ives.

Until May it seem as if the Kerry blue, Miss J. Butterworth’s Ch. Fermoy True to Form, the 1961 Dog of the Year, would be the only contender from the terrier ranks.

However, after calculating on the points system which gives credit for the number of digs beaten for all awards from Best of Group upwards, the Sunday Telegraph awards the 1962 Dog of the Year to Mr. K. Allen’s Wire haired Fox terrier, Ch. Foxwyre Flash Gem.

Twice in succession this award has gone to the Terrier Group, which is numerically our weakest group. Runner Up for the osar can be no other than Mr. T. Knight’s Dachshund, Ch. Leura Liberace


THE final group to come under review for 1963 is one of the most important and colourful of the six groups of dogs. This is the Working Group and contains among others the Australian Working dogs that are such an asset to the Pastoral Industry. These three breeds are the Cattle Dog, Kelpie and Border Collie.

Early in the year the two top winners in this Group were Dr. and Mrs. E. W. Cramer’s Collie Ch. Myoene Prima Donna and Mrs. V. Scott’s, Welsh Corgi, Ch. Less Playmate (imp.). The former accrued quite a record, including best in-show at Hornsby but was rarely shown in the latter part of the year.

Lees Playmate started the year with best-in show at Bungendore, continued to win up to and including the ‘Royal’, where he and his kennel mate, Ch. Lees Sheergold, captured the near-impossible "double" by taking out Best Working Dog and Bitch, respectively.
     Another of this breed to do exceptionally well was R. and Mrs, Carpenter's Ch. Chetwyn Merthyrtydfil. This dog was the best in-show winner at the 1961 Sydney Royal, and has continued lo hold his age well, with many best-in show wins still coming his way.

One of the smaller breeds, the Shetland Sheep Dog, was well represented by Mrs J. Palmer's Ch Dundarach Laird Donald, who, amongst other wins, took out Best of Group at Brisbane Royal.
     The most consistent and worthy winner among the Australian breeds was R. and Mrs. O'Donnell's Border Collie, Ch, Ninda Mundai.
     In summing-up the winners the two Welsh corgis, Mrs. V. Scott's Lees Playmate and Lees Sheegold take out another double as Working dog of the year and runner-up, respectively.

Sunday Telegraph; January 2, 1966

ONCE again top placing in the canine New Year honors must to that champion of champions-Leura Liberace.
     This five year-old black and tan standard smooth Dachshund has now completed an evasive hat trick by taking out Dog-of-the Year in 1963/4/5.
     In 1965 Tom Knight's top dog knocked up a tally of 14 best-in-show wins bringing his total to 83, ten runner-up to best n-show making a total of 16, and 26 best of group awards.

At the beginning of the year Dobermanns shot away to clear-cut wins when the breed won seven Best-in-Show wins in as many weeks. P. Steensel's Ch. Chaquen Chevalier took home the best at both the mammoth Garden Island K.C. show and at Albion Park.

"Liberace" was reserve hound dog to the South Australian Afghan Hound at Sydney Royal. The latter David Roche's English Ch. Mazari of Carlway (imp.), was the eventual Best-in-Show winner.

Dr. and Mrs Cramer's Collie, Ch. Myoene Prima Donna, must be highly rated in the year after her win as Best Bitch-in-Show at Sydney Royal, with J. and R. Lane's Ch. Clairvyn Comedy King Vying for honors in the breed.

The Pug dog, Mrs. G. Lord's Ch. Teng Wah China Lad. although not shown as consistently as in the past, put up some very fine General Specials' wins.

Poodles with their profuseness of coat making regular campaigning most difficult had some brilliant wins. Two leaders here appear to be the Standard, Miss P. Greenwood's Ch. Marsail the Astronaut, and the miniature, Mrs. J. Manns’ Ch. Metiss Masterpiece.

Terriers saw a mixture of winners throughout the year, from Mrs. J. Boyle's Scottish Terrier Boyledene Drambuie, the Wire Foxie, Booker and Quaglia’s Ch. Whitwyre Moonshoot, to a bevy of Smooth Foxies, including litter-mates Polley's Ideal Sierra, Ideal Sustain and McBrien's Ideal Sparkle, to George Bevan's kennel mates Redding Leo and Kenwood On Top.

Although only shown for three or four months, J. L and Mrs. Fisher's English imported smooth bitch, Ch Sufredon Charming put up a very good performance, despite the fact that many judges do not like the tan and white smooths, as much as the more or less established black and white.

Lambrigg Kennels had two very sound representatives during the year-their outstanding Cocker, Ch Lamrigg the Squatter and the Dachshund, Ch. Houston Trudi.

Another Cocker that came to the fore towards the end of the year was K. and Mrs. Daniels’, Feenix Firestone.

THE Working Dog Group has less breeds than any other group.

However, they are fortunate to include two of the most popular breeds of dogs - Welsh Corgis and Collies.

Last year this group did not have a very spectacular list of wins above Group awards possibly because the owners of one leading kennel of Corgis - D. and Mrs Scott were overseas for the major part of the show calendar year.
     However, they did have a few major wins with their imported dog, Ch. Lees Playmate, in the early part of the year, commencing at Orange K.C. show.

Other reasonably successful exhibitors in this breed were Mrs. G. McKay with Ch. Wiseguy of Wey (imp.), who started his winning year at Nepean A.H. and I.

C. and Mrs. Corlis brought out a nice, young bitch at Albion Park, Mbula Tiarli, who has left a good record behind for the year.

From the well established kennel of R. and Mrs. Carpenter came their outstanding veteran, Ch. Chetwyn Merthytidvil and the youngster Ch. Yona Montgornery -a very handy brace to own.

Another imported corgi that gathered a good record for the year was R. K. and Mrs. Jeffs’ Ch. Conjuror of Cowfold of Wey. This country-owned dog won most convincingly at many country fixtures and came to Sydney to take out Runner-Up-in-Show at Hawkesbury.

Two other good country winners were the kennelmates Diwali Mistress and Japhar Prince Glen owned by R, Erickson.

One that has done well in breed but has had many setbacks in General Specials is Mrs. D. Kurnsay's Erdwyn Gag Cavalier. Two others of a similar nature were W. and Mrs Brown's Ch. Wymbrown Tanya and Miss J. Talbot's Ch. Yona Firebrand.

In Collies it was particularly hard to pick a consistent winner among the General Specials. Many dogs are worthy of mention with little distinction between their wins.

Early in the year R. and Miss Whitehouse's Ch Loreden Lollypop appeared as if she might be set for a good run of success. In the breed itself, Mrs M. Moxham took out the first Collie Parade with her Lyngai Charming.

Garden Island K.C. show saw Mrs. S. West's Dunroven Debutante take home the Group and this was followed up with other good wins.

Another good winner at All-Breeds Shows was Dr. and Mrs. Cramer's Ch. Myoene Charmer as was Osborne and Sorensen's Ch Glendallo Glance At Me.

Hylinden Heroic, owned by J. Hart, took out the second Collie Parade and the final parade of the year went to Miss B. Moss' Raelene Rendezvous.

One that went well in both breed and all-breed competition was R. and Mrs. Lane's Ch. Montmorag Musketeer.

In Cardigan Welsh corgis we saw the outstanding Ch. Westavon Gryffud, owned by Mrs. V. West take out the Challenge at Sydney Royal followed by many colourful Group and Best-in-Show awards.

The top winner In Shetland sheepdogs was Mrs J. Palmer's Ch. Dundarach Laird Donald.

Several Kelpies are worthy of mention, these include K. A. and Mrs. Harvey's Ch. Nyanda Red Cloud, D. A. Sword's Chanticleer Della, and S. and Mrs Park's Ch, Pavesi Nelly Kelly.

Mrs. M, Cleary's, Border Collie, Nidgee Grand Slam, was a major winner in this breed.



ENTRIES for the Non-Sporting Dog Club of N.S.W. Championship Show totalled 450 and the quality of the exhibits was outstanding, as most of this State's top dogs in this group were present. Main awards were judged by Mr. Roy Burnell.

Best in Show was the imported black Miniature Poodle, Ch. Jalahalli Geronimo, owned by Mrs R. Dunlop. This outstanding dog who was a challenge winner at Sydney Royal this year and who has Best in show All breeds awards to his credit was shown at top of his form.

Runner Up to him was the Samoyed dog, Ch. Vi Knobe Snowking, owned by Mr. R. Holmes. He won Best Australasian Bred the Open exhibit being the Poodle. The Challenge winning Bulldog, Garcia Kim, a well bred one with good bone, headpiece and topline, was Best Exhibit under Three Years for H. & A. Garth. In the Juniors, the consistently successful Doberman bitch Ch. Tasso Black Opal, headed the field for Mr. & Mrs E. Smith.

The best of Breed Collie, Myoene Prima Donna, owned and bred by Dr. & Mrs E. W. Cramer, took out Best Puppy in Show. Best Under Six Months and winner of the Sweepstakes was the miniature Poodle, Rynoldi Andre, owned and bred by Mrs E. Hutchins.

Best Minor Puppy was the Welsh Corgi, Lealwen Maverick, owned by R. Kinder.

Best Members Exhibit was the Challenge winning Welsh corgi bitch, Ch. Radnor Roslyn, making her last appearance for Mrs Moorehouse. This grand specimen is now six years of age and during her show career annexed the Challenge 50 times.

These were headed by the Cocker Spaniel, R. McKenzis's Lambrigg Paddy, judged in his group by well-known expert handler Mr. Steve Pausey.

Jenning’s Miniature Smooth Dachshund Talei Tawny. Another highlight of the show was the St. Bernard Cornagarth Gareth, who completed his championship title at this show.
