Today at the Kilmore and District Kennel Club 2015 show the hound group was judged by Mrs Barbara Doyle (Vic) who also officiated for general specials. Tambuzi The Secret Society (Lyra) was awarded Best of Breed and Best Minor Puppy in Group. Very pleased to have the judge give Lyra a good look for minor in show.

Kilmore & District Show - 20 Dec 2015
Such a lovely day with friends at Maryborough and District 2015 Championship Show. Great company and great food. The hound group judge was Mr Graeme Missen (Vic) who also officiated for general specials. Mr Missen offered extremely positive comments about Tambuzi The Secret Society (Lyra) whilst she was on the table and during judging. Lyra, just over 6 months, old showed well for her class but didn't gait nearly as well as she can for the bitch challenge. She was awarded reserve bitch challenge over two seasoned champions which is very encouraging. Later Lyra went on to be awarded Best Minor Puppy in Group against some quality exhibits. Finally being awarded Best Minor Puppy in Show! Needless to say this topped of what was a fantastic day.

Maryborough & District Show - 12 Dec 2015
Hound specialist Mrs Gwen Ford (Vic) officiated as the hound judge at the Belgrave and District Kennel Club Show 2015. The weather was a little bit cool but Tambuzi The Secret Society (Lyra) did very well in the baby puppy run off handled by Tony Wills she beat her brother Tambuzi The Master of Ascallon (Gus) who performed beautifully at this his first show. Lyra was awarded best baby puppy of breed and then went up against an absolutely stunning line-up (many breeds represented) of babies for best Baby Puppy in Group. So honored that Lyra was awarded Best Baby Puppy In Group against such strong competition. I was happy with that. But Lyra went one better and under General Specials judge Bev Watt (Vic) Lyra was awarded Best Baby Puppy In Show - so wrapped with that!

Officiating at the South Eastern Kennel Club 2014 championship show for the Hound Group was Ms Mariko Harasa (Japan). From observation it appeared the judge had a keen eye on front construction with correct angulation and good fill, not too narrow and movement. Against lovely competition I was delighted that Ms Harasa awarded all of my entries first in class. With Best of Breed to Ch Tambuzi The Isle Of Avalon (Arthur) and Runner Up Best of Breed and Best Minor Puppy in Group to Ch Tambuzi The Secret of Roan Inish (Willow). Reserve bitch challenge went to Ch Tambuzi The Rinpocheof Qinghai (Ruby)

Arthur was given a run for best in group and was awarded Best Australian Bred in Group. Ch Tambuzi The Rinpocheof Qinghai (Ruby) was awarded reserve bitch challenge - her paw was a little better.

Mr Gaut awarded Best of Breed to Ch Tambuzi The Secret of Roan Inish (Willow) and Runner Up Best of Breed to Ch Tambuzi The Isle Of Avalon (Arthur). It was the first time back in the ring after several months for Ch Tambuzi The Rinpocheof Qinghai (Ruby). However, rather unfortunately she went lame. When I examined her paw whilst the other bitch in the class was being examined. I found she had a rather nasty gash in her pad.
