Underneath the Kyogle mop's 30cm-long hair, you'll find a skye terrier known by the rest of the ultra-competitive dog show world as Santlin Secret Liaison.

Grooming her 23-month-old champion pooch to perfection on Monday, Ms Davies said she had high hopes her little boy would set the show ring alight.

As the only skye terrier registered in this year's event, the small mutt, also known as Dudley, was assured of the best in breed title - the first rung on the Ekka ladder of success.

"He's won three groups and age classes," Ms Davies said proudly.

"He's the best dog I've had in 35 years.

"They are just the most loyal, wonderful dog - they are very intuitive."
