Wodac 2012

Wow Wodac was a very busy but fun week-end for all. Edward competed in the Top 32 SA Bred and made the cut to the final 16 - we are very proud of him given he is only just two years old !
Edward also competed in the Challenge of the Champions and ended 4th in the Working Group.
The stall was busy and although we could not chat to everybody we hope that the people who took club leaflets will take the time to read a little about the breed.
A BIG THANK YOU  to DOGSENSE dog food for the stall !!! 
Photos are posted in the Gallery.
