The gardens of the home of the High Commissioner for the United Kingdom plays host to the Championship Show of the Canberra Kennel and Trial Association. Several breeds of dogs are paraded before the judge, Harold Norman, a well known wrestling referee. Collies, Scotch Terriers, Kelpies and a Dachshund named Prince feature amongst other breeds. A basketful of Corgi puppies provide a delightful distraction for the children.
