Ekka's Dog Competition 2008


Ekka's Dog Competition: Alaskan Malamute

There was this dog competition going on when we were in Brisbane for Queensland’s biggest and best loved annual family event - the Ekka Exhibition. Seriously, I know nothing about dogs but I really have made my best effort to identify these dogs from small breeds to giant breeds. So please, please forgive me if any of the information is incorrect.
