Pam and Denis with Tommy (Fancy Tip)
On Thursday last week,  our dear friends Pam and Denis Schofield won the Auckland Cup with their gorgeous greyhound Tommy (Fancy Tip).
Pam and Denis were also my Louie's trainers - Louie came second in Auckland Cup 2006. :)

There is a great article on this race on TheDogs website, here : http://www.thedogs.co.nz/News.aspx?NewsID=756 
I particularly like this sentence: " In fact Denis hadn't fully realized that he also had trained the third placed runner Koko Whiz until he arrived at the presentation podium." :)

Denis sent me some full size pictures so I thought to post them here - enjoy!

Fancy Tip and his kennelmate Koko Whiz, who came third
And last but not the least -Denis with the Cup :)
