27/6/17: We are thrilled to say that at the age of 7 years old, Spook has finally gained his much
overdue and very well deserved Australian Championship show title in May.
Spook finished his title on a high note, going Best Exhibit in Group 3 and then one
step further, winning Best Australian Bred In Show at Deniliquin shows.
Spook was very ably handled by Kirstin Bullen in his class and in the Aust Bred In Show line up.
I had the wonderful thrill of handling him myself to win the Group (so pleased my old,
arthritic body held up long enough to run around the ring !!) So very happy our beautiful
boy can now be known as - Aust Ch Silvasheen Oska Dlarenta - it's been a long time coming !
Thank you to our dear friends, Sarah & Steve Bekker (Spook's co-owners) for ensuring
our boy was in tip top condition for the shows.

Spook then went on to win Best Australian Bred In Show..
a wonderful way to finish his show title !!
4/4/16: A long time since a Spook update !
Spook had not been shown for over 3 years,
however, we ventured up to the Myrtleford shows
a few weeks ago and I was thrilled when Spook
went Best of Breed at the Saturday show, snaffling
some more points towards his much overdue show
title. He was beaten by a much younger dog the following
day, however, we headed home happy in the knowledge that
we only need another 18 pts to go to reach the magical 100
for his show title. It was lovely to catch up our dear friend & Spook's
co-owner Sarah. Thank you for your wonderful hospitality !
A few shows are being planned for the
Winter months and hopefully, we will finally realise our
long held dream of Spook becoming a champion.
Thanks again to Sue Culbert for handling Spook at Myrtleford xx

12/3/12: Spook wins Best Of Breed and was
shortlisted for the Group at his first show since
arriving back home from the US. This was

thrilled with the result. Many thanks to
Lorraine Brennan for showing Spook
and doing such a great job !

Graded 'Very Promising'
(Our thanks to Rachel Stock for stacking Spook here)
We are thrilled to have the opportunity to have a stunning son from
Oska & Bree. Spook will live with Sarah & Steve Bekker
of Briagolong. Sarah & Steve had Stan's litter brother Willie.
Sadly, Willie lost his battle with cancer at a relatively young
age and we are very happy to place Spook with Sarah & Steve.
Willie can never be replaced, but we hope Spook will bring
much happiness to them over the years.
*** SPOOK IS HEADING TO THE U.S !! ***
Due to a new posting with work, Steve & Sarah will be
heading to the United States in September for a period of 15 months,
before heading back to Australia, where they will then
be based in Adelaide. Spook will be in Australia until December.
We wish Sarah & Steve well with this fabulous opportunity
and look forward to Spook's return to Australia and hopefully,
finishing his Australian championship, albeit a little later than
We will miss our little man, but the time will fly by quickly
and he will be back before we know it !
AT HIS VERY FIRST SHOW ! ***
