Barney lives with friends locally (who used to show), and he has the absolute best of both worlds. 
Lots of individual attention and the occasional show outing.  He was 16 months old before he went to a show.
Barney won RDCC at Newcastle in great company at his second outing.  Within his first half-dozen shows he won RDCC twice then his first DCC and R/U BOB again in Newcastle, and finished his Australian title the same year.  Barney was a delight to show and has now retired to become a full-time beloved "pet".
  Barney returns to the show ring to compete as a "Neuter" dog.  First outing he wins Best Neuter in show at the NSW GRC Championship show in May 2013. His next outing was to a "triple show weekend" where he won Best Neuter in Show twice and Best Neuter in Group at the 3rd show - great start Barney Boy!
