Congratulations to new ETT owner and exhibitor Judith Gibson and her beautiful boy "Arlow", Yurrugar So Hot Right Now, for going Best Baby Puppy in Show! at the ACT Toy Specialty over the first weekend in October under judge Ms L Fairhall (Vic). Arlow is from our Bart and Meeka litter, and is the younger full sibling to Wicked Witch Of the West, Lioness Rampant, Relentless Pursuit (UK) and Clash of Swords. Interestingly, Lioness Rampant won the same award at the same show one year prior. Keep it up Judith and Arlow!

Thank you to Mr Wayne Douglas, for awarding Ch Yurrugar V Lone Star Titanium Best in Group and then Runner Up to Best in Show (all breeds) from the junior class at the Townsville KC Championship Show on July 1st. "Derek" has firmly cemented himself as Australia's #1 All Breeds ETT, the only section of the Dogzonline Pointscore we enter as we believe it to be the most prestigious section of the competition. Thank you as always must go to his co-owner and handler, Mr Shane Thomas, for believing in this awesome little dog as much as we did!
Congratulations to Jan and Niko, Ch Yurrugar Wicked Witch Ofthewest, for taking out two Best Junior in Group awards over the weekend of the 8/9 of July!
On June 17th we gained a new Australian Champion in our very stylish young dog Yurrugar V Lone Star Titanium. "Derek" is a son of Lone Star Conquest and Keeping Secrets (exported Singapore) and is campaigned in Queensland for us by Shane and Ross Thomas. Derek finished off in style by taking Best in Group and then Runner Up to Best in Show (all breeds) from the junior class! This is our forth Australian Champion for 2017.
June has started well. Our very beautiful 5 month old baby YURRUGAR PARTY POPPER went Best Baby Puppy in the Toy Group at her first show in Melbourne. Thanks to Nicole Rowley for her super handling of our gorgeous Poppy.
Lovely to receive these gorgeous new photos of Ch Yurrugar Wicked Witch Ofthewest "Niko". Just over 12 months old now and maturating beautifully!

Elated to hear the news that the beautiful Australian Champion Yurrugar Keeping Secrets (AI) (exp Sing) is now also a Singaporean champion! Congratulations to Swish, Connie and all the connections of this stunning little lady!
The Yurrugar English Toy Terriers attended a day the Dog Lovers Show at the Melbourne Exhibition Building on Friday May 5th. And what a ball we had! We had many people stop by for pats and information. Next year we will attend all three days, so book it in everyone and come and see us!
Congratulations to our team in Singapore of Connie Yang and Ch Yurrugar Keeping Secrets (AI). Three shows, three best of breed wins, a best open in group and a best in group 3rd!
Lexi and team Yurrugar once again proved that they're the choice of ETT for the international judges! At the Bulla Autumn Extravaganza, Under Mr D Johnson from the USA, Yurrugar Dream Come True took a wonderful Runner Up Best in Group from a leading line up of toy dogs.

Above left and below, Yurrugar Clash of Swords. Above right, Yurrugar Armed N Ready. Two very beautiful dogs.
We are very pleased to say that we had an excellent Canberra Royal Show. The 7 hour, 14 hour round trip, was well worth it! Three Yurrugar ETTs were exhibited for the following results; Best dog, Best of Breed and RUNNER UP TO BEST IN GROUP from the junior class was our up and coming start Yurrugar Clash of Swords. At just 10 months of age, Benjen has a huge future. We have known how beautiful and "showie" he was from very early on. This is a stunning dog that will make his mark at all breed level. Best bitch and Runner up to Best of Breed was the wonderful BIS BISS Aust Ch Yurrugar Dream Come True "Lexi". Reserve dog was Yurrugar Armed N Ready. Photos above by Cabal Canine Candids.
Wonderful start to the month with our team over in the West, Jan and Yurrugar Wicked WitchoftheWest taking out Best of Breed and Best Minor Puppy in Group. Niko is also now our first Australian Champion title getter for 2017! She titled in the company of much older ETTs. Congratulations team!
The show ring has taken a back seat this month due to it being summer, and we aren't overly keen showies in the hot months. Our time is spent with the dogs by the pool, and we have been enjoying our litter from Roy and Goldie. February will see us head to the Royal Canberra Show with Clash of Swords, Dream Come True and Armed N Ready. It has been decided that the impressive Tex, Yurrugar V Lone Star Conquest, will now be retired from the ring and Benjen, Clash of Swords, will replace him. Hard decision, but we can only show so many! 2017 Will see the Tex son, Lone Star Titanium, really hit the ring. He will be campaigned in Queensland by Shane Thomas. "Derek" had a light start to his show career, but it was very successful none the less. He is now no longer a puppy and is ready to really get out there and show them what an amazing ETT he is. This is one extremely lovely dog. Hopefully we will get some photosto show him off to all soon.
welcome to 2017
And what a great start to the year we have had! Who Shot JR (Roy) and Runway Model (Goldie) have given us 6 beautiful babies on Jan 1st. At this point in time, all puppies are spoken for. The female will remain at Yurrugar as we have a habit of keeping boys (Paige is always drawn to the boys!), and we are in need of a nice new girl for the team. Her name will be Yurrugar Party Popper, with the boys being named by their new owners. Our next planned litter is between Roy and Yurrugar So Swish (Prue). We have yet to put Prue on the website, but she is a lovely girl from Nick (Am Ch Oakwood V Ebet's Invincible (imp USA) and Aust Ch Yurrugar Keeping Secrets (AI) (exp Singapore). Prue has not been shown very much due to an injury to her ear that happened when she was a little baby, but if she was able to really be campaigned, she would easily be a champion! And what a pedigree hey!
