This was my first introduction into the world of Show Dogs, which is now in it's 32nd year.
Some of the Early Australian Silky Terriers owned and exhibited were:
Aust. Ch. Bogunda Boy Blue, Aust. Ch. Dandylou Nada, and our home breed Aust. Ch. Kalisse Just aA Dream (whose photo appears in the book Dogs of Australia (1984) all of whom were Multi In Group and In Show Winners.
