What a great little showman

His beautiful golden tan
furnishings were admired by all
and his silky coat always shone
His achievements included
Best of Breed, Adelaide Royal Show
Challenge Dog and Runner up Best of Breed, Melbourne Royal Show
Best in Group and many Class in Group Awards.
Dandy was retired from the showring
at 4 years of age with 430 challenge points,
taking Open in Group at his final show
Weighing in at 4 lb., Dandy was an irrepressible mischievious bundle of energy.  
Everything in life was a challenge to him, as can be seen from the stand-off he is
accomplishing with these Aberdeen Angus cattle at our back fence.
Nothing changed from those
early days, and right up to
recent times, he would still
challenge our horse Toga at
the back fence, -  a bright and
sprightly little dog
Here he is with son Ben
and here with son Basil
