The BMDCA 2004 National Speciality
Mesquite, Texas

Can you help identify these folk and their dogs?

Liz Bradbury is compiling a CD of the pics from the Specialities and we are trying to identify just who is on these great pics.

With many thank to Mike Whalen for pics from his website.

Mail me if you have any information

I will add the replies as they come in!

From Liz tonight,

The first three, 20, 21 & 22 were all taken at the Rodeo Dinner (looks like a good time was had by all too!)
