    President's Message

    As we all comment on another year flying by & coming to an end saying 'where did the year go'? Take time to reflect on the the achievements of your year with this club. Some of us will have shed a tear as our beloved four legged family member made the journey over the rainbow bridge, others will be delighted with the sounds of new paws pattering around their home. The Bairnsdale & District Dog Obedience Club community have celebrated the successes of many of our members, competing in Dog Agility,Jumping and Obedience trials over the past twelve months. We held our AGM recently, where a few of our long serving committee members chose to take a rest and stand down from the high demands that go with the role of a committee, we have not lost their expertise, in fact we will all gain from it as they are now able to focus on their skills as trainers and pass on their valuable knowledge, as well as taking time to travel and compete with their own four legged companions. Thank you Lorna, Rocky & Trish for your hard work and dedication to this club over many years. Welcome to Linda and Amy, both joining the committee, the skills you bring to the committee and this club will be greatly appreciated. Thank you to all of our dedicated instructors, this club would not exist without you, volunteering your time each week to pass on your skills and expertise. The club is growing rapidly with ever increasing community members wanting their dog to be well socialised and behave in a safe and acceptable manner whilst in the community, this is encouraging for us all. Responsible owners are recognising the importance of educating their puppies as soon as possible from baby puppy classes at 8weeks and staying with us for many enjoyable years. The club Christmas break-up will be held on December 3rd, time for us all to relax, have fun & socialise before we head off to prepare for our own Christmas holiday in whichever style we choose to celebrate the season of Good Will. Please travel safely, remember the comfort of your dog during the summer heat, plenty of cool, fresh water, shade and if possible a 'cool coat', your dog does not need the indulgent treats of chocolates etc. over the festive season Merry Christmas

    To our dogs at Christmas

    Please don’t touch the goodies that we’ll leave by the door.

    They’re not for you It is Santa they’re for!

    You mustn’t bark or bite As he lets himself in

    Despite all your instincts You must not make a din!

    You see we mustn’t see him On his Christmas rounds,

    and if you were to growl and bark I’d have to get up and come down.

    Armed with my baseball bat, poised and ready to swing it. It would be so embarrassing

    if Santa was to get it! So in order to save Christmas and no embarrassment for us,

    Please be a good girl/boy and do not make a fuss.

    Apple Mint Christmas Dog Bones

    1½ cups whole wheat flour 1 cup unbleached all purpose flour 1/2 cup old fashioned rolled oats 1/3 cup oat bran 2 tablespoons dry milk 1 ½ teaspoons dry baking yeast 2 tablespoons chopped spearmint leaves 1/2 cup applesauce 2 teaspoons green or red food coloring or spinach

    powder (to get the color desired) 7/8 cup water

    Use a bread machine, or a mixer. Place everything in the bread machine on the dough

    a non-stick rolling pin. Using a mini bone cookie cutter, cut the dough into
