Dog trial trophy honours a popular little pet

THE inaugural Milo Memorial Trophy will be contested on May 26 at the Warwick Lure Coursing Club course at Henry Joppich Park.

As highlighted in the Daily News last year, club president Anne Freebairn, of Truckaluck Kennels, has sponsored the Milo trophy which will be contested each year.

"The trophy will be presented in memory of Milo, a West Highland White Terrier I raced for three years at club competitions," Freebairn said.

"She was top scoring dog of the day at one field trial in 2009. Milo always did well and was a little dog that was keen on lure coursing and popular with club members."

It is expected the event will attract 50 dogs and their handlers from as far away as Brisbane.

There will be barbecue during the trial.

Registrations are on May 26 from 9am, with first dogs on course at 9.30am.

All are welcome, and for more information call 4666 6208.

Warwick dog enthusiasts are welcome to participate with their dogs in the RSPCA Million Paws Walk over distances of 1.5km, 3.5km and 4.5km at Queens Park, Toowoomba, with registrations from 9am Sunday, and the walks from 10am.

Assembly area is on the corner of Margaret and Lindsay sts.
