|Type of Breeds|
|I purchased my first Irish Wolfhound in 1980 and was convinced by friends that she was too good not to show, so I took her to a weekend of shows and she won Puppy in Show at both shows and I have been addicted ever since.
Since that first weekend I have bred and exhibited Irish Wolfhounds under my Crusheen prefix and although not breeding extensively have bred and exhibited 16 Australian Champions.
I have also bred and exhibited Whippets and Skye Terriers, and have exhibited Afghans and Cairn Terriers. I have been actively involved in Canine affairs as a member of the Executive of the Darling Downs Kennel Club since 1984 and as Secretary for 10 years and President since 2002. I was given the honour of Life Membership in 1994.
I have been on the Royal Agricultural Society Qld. Dog Section committee since 1983 and have been Chairman and Chief Steward since 1998.
I began judging in 1995 with the Hound group and achieved All Breeds in 2009. I have had appointments in all States of Australia and have judged in New Zealand on numerous occasions and also in India, Thailand, Sweden ,Finland, Russia, Bulgaria, Peru, Bolivia, China, and Japan. I have judged The ACT Hound Club Show and the New Zealand South Island Hound Club Show. I have also judged Specialities for Irish Wolfhounds, Borzois, Rhodesian Ridgebacks, German Shorthaired Pointers, Old English Sheepdogs, Belgian Shepherds, St Bernards, and Chihuahuas in Australia and New Zealand.
I have been involved in Judges training and have presented the Irish Wolfhound lecture for trainee judges for 25 years.
