John became a Retrieving Trial judge in 1983 and retired  from judging in 2003 to spend time travelling around Australia as chaffeur and general dog's body for Nic whilst Nic was competing at Kayaking events. The gallery below contains some photos we have discovered whilst researching further information for the book 'Silver Grey'.  These are photos that were taken in South Australia during the 1990's and appeared in their Canine Journal.  As we discover additional photos of John's judging (i.e. the National in 2001) etc. they will be added.
