Shelties were part of David's family before he was born. So it was obvious that David would be brought up to respect animals and take a keen and active interest in looking after them. David enjoys many walks with the family pets and travels to the shows and doing his share of the driving. He  also does his share of dog sitting and packing the car for various shows & meetings. Since his Mother, Joan became club secretary he has been helping with catalogue marking and activities for the Mid Western Shows. Therefore it was inevitable that he would slowly get more and more involved with the activities and assisting in the running of the club. David expects to be an fully active Committee Member.
