EARTHDOG ROUND-UP 2016

 

First of all, congratulations to Earthdog Of The Year winner, “DB” aka Dual Ch (ED) Stormvale Borda Double Trouble.  DB stormed onto the earthdog scene last year, earning a fist full of titles and was a worthy winner of the EDOY for 2015.  She has backed it up in fine style this year, earning her Masters Title and Earthdog Champion Title in a single season.  Congratulations and well done to DB!!

 

One look at the leaderboard will show that there were several other worthy contenders and some new kids on the block just starting on their earthdog journey.  Good luck to them all for 2017.

 

After several years in abeyance, the Border Terrier Club of NSW Inc once again conducted a double Earthdog Test in September this year.  Attracting an excellent entry of 44 dogs,   Judges Brian Clinch and Penny Mead were kept very busy working with some very talented earthdogs and signing lots of qualification cards.    Special note to Edenside Bush Ranger EIC “Scoota”, and Cornstalk Nogood Boyo EIC “Tucker”, both earning their Earthdog Instinct Certificates on the day.  Congratulations to the young lads and their proud owners Neil Mackenzie and Julia Barnett.
