My name is Kristy. I have had show dogs for the past 22 years. I started with Cairn Terriers and with help
from Val Palmer of Towstytyke I have had 10 Champions, 2 Gr Ch, Multi Royal Challenges and BOB, Many
Best in Groups and Reserves and Classes in Show. I continue to campaign Towsytyke Cairn's as well as some
of their offspring and you can view some of these dogs on our handling page.

I started showing dogs at the age of 10. I got involved in junior handlers at the age of 11 and Achieved
many junior handling wins including 2 Runner-Up In the State and a 2nd in the senior class at the Qld State Finals of Pedigree PAL Junior Dog Handlers Competition.

I have also had the opportunity to show many quality dogs in this time to champion titles, several Grand
Champions, many Best In Groups, and Best In Shows. I Thank all those people and they know who
they are for their help and the opportunity to show these lovely dogs and thank them for their continued friendship.

When I moved out of home and had to leave the Cairns behind (mum & dad wouldn't part with them)
there was a large void that I never dreamed would be filled by Staffords. When I met Craig (Beaurite
Staffords) I began showing Honey (CH Beaurite Red Sunset) and fell in love with Staffords. I handled this
girl to her title and several Best in Groups and began to take an active interest in Craig's dogs and the
bloodlines behind them. I began the search for a girl that would not only compliment what we had in our yard
but would also be my first Stafford.

Along came my beautiful Bailey (CH Orazz Turradh) she is my constant companion even coming to work
with me on a regular basis and prompting me to register my own prefix "BXACT". Bailey titled with relative ease
at the age of 16 months winning several Best in Groups. Bailey has produced 2 lovely litters for me and started the BXACT prefix. I unfortunately had to spey her only daughter from her first litter due to complications when she
came into season. Her daughter from her second litter, Trixie is half way to her title from limited outings and we
look forward to breeding Trixie later in 2012. Bailey now lives in the house as part of my family she has the most
gorgeous personality and I would trade her for the world.

My next addition was Porcha (Ch Joden Temptress) who joined me as a 6 month old puppy quite by accident. She belonged to Renee who was my nail artist and after a visit to her home one day when she mentioned that she
didn’t have time for the staffords at that point in her life with a young daughter I was thrilled to purchase Porcha
from Renee (Many thanks). Porcha entered the ring in September at nearly 9 months and took out Minor in Show & Puppy of the Day. She has never looked back going on to win several Specialty Best In Shows and Class in Shows.
She gained her title at 17 months of age with Runner Up Best In Group and has had several Best In group awards in the all breeds ring. I look forward to campaigning Porcha’s children in 2012.

Since then I have continued to build on these foundations for Bxact. Breeding is an art and sometimes no matter
how much research you put in things don’t always go to plan. I only breed 1 – 2 litters a year and only if I can /
intend to retain something to show and breed in the future.



PERSONAL THANK YOU'S

I have also had the opportunity to show many quality dogs during my time in the dog world. I have campaigned
many many dogs to their champion titles and there are far to many to list but a great deal of thanks is owed to
their owners / breeders and they all know who they are.

My sincerest thanks to Val Palmer who is a treasured friend and gave me my first real show dog. Rhett was
given to me as a puppy as a Christmas present he went on to become GR CH Towsytyke Scott Onjazz. Val has
given me & my mum the honour of campaigning & Owning some lovely dogs including (just to name a few)
GR CH Towsytyke Jitter Bugger, Aust & NZ Ch Towsytyke Manona Mishen and Aust & Swd Ch Raskens
Romping Popinjay (Imp Swd).

Amy Jonas (Aimfor Cairn Terriers) for her friendship, her understanding and her continued support even when
things aren’t going right. I am proud to campaign an Aimfor and to be able to call you a friend. I look forward to
many many more Aimfors visiting Qld for quick sprints J I am proud to say I have campaigned Ch Aimfor Symply A Star,
Ch Aimfor Symply Aplayboy and soon to be champion Aimfor A Lil Bit Fancy.

Thanks also to Angie Boyes (Orazz Staffords) for allowing me to have Bailey (Ch Orazz Turradh).
Bailey is everything I couldn’t have wanted in a companion and I loved her dearly.

I thank Carmel Curtis (Xioping Shar-pei) for letting me campaign and co-own Laker - BIS BISS GR CH Xioping DR Terwillaker who is the youngest GR Ch Shar-pei he titled at 20 mths of age. His sister Ch Xioping Rhapsode N Rinkle who retired 150 pts short of her GR CH title was my much loved pet may Diva R.I.P and run safe at rainbow bridge.

Many thanks also to Mrs Jessie Beattie (Moirungu West Highland White Terriers) for allowing me to campaign to their GR CH titles GR CH Bendalock Backwater Bob, GR CH Bendalock Blackfriars and GR CH Moirungu Kyle Olochalsh. Showing the westies was a absolute pleasure and a wonderful learning curve.
