The Andrew Award
This award is in memory of Am/Can/INT CH Diotima Bear Necessity CD CGC TDI HIC ROMX ROMI VA and offered by Pat McDonald, Karen Kaye, Susan Lybrand, Pat Hyde and Linda Swain. It is awarded to the Beardie who, along with its handler, has performed the most service hours in therapy work during the previous calendar year. The dog must be certified through a therapy organization that requires certification, and which carries liability insurance. The handler must be a BCCA member in good standing.
The Andrew Award trophy is cold cast bronze resin sculpture… and while not signed, most likely by artist John Stanbridge.
