The Welsh Corgi Club of Victoria would like to inform Corgi exhibitors that our April Show judge, Mrs Carole Vaughan, is unable to fulfil her appointment due to health reasons. Although we are disappointed that Carole cannot be with us, we are pleased to announce that Mrs Joan Hutton has accepted our invitation to judge the show. Entries close on 1 April, so please get them in so you can join us on the day! We look forward to seeing lots of Welsh Corgi enthusiasts there.
For all the love and joy our wonderful Corgis bring us throughout their lives, The Welsh Corgi Club of Victoria honours members’ very special companions with the following awards:
Living Legend Award:
