Lovable Lochie gets star treatment
EVERY dog has its day, but Brisbane woman Louise Dorr is hoping hers has more than one.
Louise spent the past week in the Clarence Valley, judging the dog event at the Maclean Agricultural Show, before entering her own pooch in the Grafton contest.
Her shih tzu has the rather long name of Grand Champion Duxford IamwhatIam, but generally goes by Lochie.
He was in the non-sporting section of the Canine Carnival, which ran from Friday to yesterday.
Louise said grooming was very important when it came to showing a long-haired dog.
“You have to brush them every day and it takes two to three hours to get ready for a show,” she said.
Louise said she had been impressed by the quality of entrants when she was a judge at Maclean Show.
“It was very good, for best in show we had seven excellent dogs,” she said.
