I have spent over 26 years in the voluntary sector since I started BLANDIS. It has been both fun and rewarding, but now I put this dormant, to try my wings. New opportunities and adventures await me, that require my full focus.

This journey with all of you has been exciting and I have learned a lot about both dogs and associations and how both tedious and difficult it can be in both dog world and association world.

I want to thank everyone who has been involved since 1993 and pulled the big load over the years, especially my family, as set-up in both wet and dry, but equally heartfelt thanks to those who have become my close friends through these 26 years and also served as a Blandis family.
