September 2014: Lizzie was awarded reserve challenge bitch with a strong competitive line up of bitches. She also was awarded Puppy of Breed, also competing against many nice dogs/and bitches in this class. In addition to this Lizzie was awarded 4th place in the puppy bitch specials on the Sunday, competing against 35 all breed puppies in her age group of 6-12 months. Lizzie was 11 months at the time. Entered in the prestigious Guineas 6-18 month dogs/bitches in a line up of 31 all breeds, she was shortlisted, 8 being pulled out for the final selection. Well done Lizzie.

October 2014 UPDATE:
At the Adelaide Royal Show 2014, Lizzie won her puppy class,and gained reserve Challenge bitch and Puppy of Breed. Additionally she gained 4th place in the puppy bitch sweepstakes at the Adelaide Royal out of 35 all breed puppy bitches aged between 6 and 12 months of age . She was also shortlisted in the prestigious Guineas out of a very large entry of all breed dogs/bitches between the ages of 6 and 18 months of age. WELL DONE LIZZIE. At just under 12 months, Lizzie is half way to her Australian title, against some strong competition. Rudi is her litter brother, gained Best of Breed at the Adelaide Royal, later gaining his title at Mt.

SADLY, we lost Lizzie to snake bite in March 2018. RIP little lady, you will be sadly missed xx Australian Champion Cooper, her father, also suffered the same fate, in the same week to a different snake, plaguing the area in the hot days of summer. We managed to dispose of the snakes involved.
