Quote from “My Journey” by Fergus Fraser
Prize Winning Picture
BY DR. U. BARK
‘Congratulations, we have pleasure in advising you, that your photograph has won the ‘Chef Jellimeat Snap your Pet Competition.‘
Earlier in 1984 prior to Raewyn leaving for the U.K. I had dreamed up an idea for the competition and Raewyn had helped me with the photo shoot. Tessa sat fairly still most of the time but the lenses in the glasses had to come out as they seemed to bother her. The theme ‘dogma’ had obviously appealed to the judges and all up the prize was worth $10,294. Originally planned for a family of four the sponsors cashed it up allowing Audrey and I to visit the U.K. and Europe. So a big thanks to our clever little Sheltie Tessa.
We had a three day stop-over in Los Angeles where we visited the usual tourist attractions like Disneyland and Universal Studios.
