Stewards need appreciation

I feel I must take pen to paper having stewarded at many shows from companion to championship and having been around for several years.
I would like to ask why stewards are not given the kudos they deserve. We give our time freely and travel many miles. Without your stewards you could not run your shows. Very often we are not even acknowledged nor thanked. However, there are a few shows where appreciation is shown.
A couple of weeks ago I went with a friend to steward for her. It was bitterly cold, even though indoors. I was not even acknowledged nor thanked, and lunch was sandwiches! 
It took three hours to get to the venue. We give our time and expertise freely, we do not ask for remuneration.
Please wake up societies and treat us with some thanks and respect. 
No show can go forward without stewards
Yours etc

Record holder?

I wonder if any readers can help me? Has anyone any details about the dog that holds the CC record under different judges? I believe that it is held by a Chihuahua and is over 100 tickets. 
If any one can help please email me with the information. I look forward to hearing from you.
Yours etc
Sue Cox
