You?re the best? ... ?No you?re the best
By EMMA CORNFORD
THE Grafton Greyhound Track is no stranger to man's best friend, but over the weekend it hosted more than just lithe racing dogs.
Canines of all shapes and sizes were at the track to compete in the 2006 Clarence District Kennel Club Dog Show on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
From poodles to stumpy tailed working kelpies, it was all about the fur as show dogs competed for coveted titles.
Black standard poodle 'Voila Canadian Club', owned by Brisbane's Lance Wright, took out the best in show award two days running.
"We had over 500 entries this year so it was a really good show," Kennel Club member Elizabeth Payne said.
"It's one of the biggest regional shows in NSW and the numbers were up on last year.
"We had hounds, utility dogs, non-sporting dogs ? all kinds of breeds were there."
Judges from Sweden, New Zealand, Victoria, Tasmania and New South Wales were on hand to find the best dogs according to a set of standards set out for each breed.
