Home / Friends / From Australia 2004

Mr. &Mrs. Keith and Patricia Lovell (Tjuringa Kennel) visited us in Japan last autumn and stayed from Nov.18th to 27th. He is one of renown Airedale and Welsh Terrier breeders in Australia. We had come to know them at the "Millennium celebration" and have been in touch since then.
Keith willingly agreed to be our judge for the Autumn Championship Show. It was a great honour for us to have him as a judge.
He started Airedales since 1967 and produced 35 champion dogs. He had got a Judge license in 1974, after that he has been active as a international judge in the several countries. Among these shows, there was Montogomery Show in US(1986).

On Nov.21st, the weather was good though a little windy. He has a wonderful personality. We had careful and gentle judge from him. Besides, our Diane got Best in Show. It was a wonderful day for us.

Best in Show

We passed the days they were in Japan, traveling to Nara and Kyoto, sightseeing to neighboring towns. They enjoyed OLD Japan!
And they stayed at Tokyo for the last day and enjoyed NEW Japan. They tried to eat any traditional Japanese foods. They were interested in Japanese sight, foods, custom, goods and so on. I was so happy to be with them.
