Bull Terriers, Miniature - week 26Updated : 22/06/2017

LAST WEEKEND saw Vanessa Hearne tackle an entry of 23 at Border Union. DCC was Jacob Nawi’s I’ll be Here For You Marso-Bull. This is his third CC, quite an achievement for a Czech bred dog who’s resident in Israel! He’s the second dog who’s enjoyed a successful show career in the UK while &lsquo...

Bull Terriers, Miniature - week 25Updated : 14/06/2017

BACK FROM Finland, and what a beautiful country it is, less than six million citizens and more green fields, forests and lakes than you could shake a stick at but, interestingly, it seems the Finnish weather forecasters are as poor at their jobs as their UK counterparts. Consider our position; the show is held over two days ...

Bull Terriers, Miniature - week 24Updated : 09/06/2017

JUST BACK from a blissful week in Tuscany with the family – I do so love to be in the company of the young with their almost tangible joie de vivre, enthusiasm and sense of fun – rather like Mini Bull Terriers really, so I guess it’s what keeps us young (or is that only wishful thinking?)!   &nbs...

JUST BACK from a blissful week in Tuscany with the family – I do so love to be in the company of the young with their almost tangible joie de vivre, enthusiasm and sense of fun – rather like Mini Bull Terriers really so I guess it’s what keeps us young! (or is that only wishful thinking?) Just as well thoug...

Bull Terriers, Miniature - week 22Updated : 30/05/2017

MANY THANKS to Sylvia Monaghan for updating us on her recent overseas judging appointment – congratulations to all winners’ She writes: “The weekend with the Klub Anglickeho Bull Terrriers and Mini BT held at Lavlo Czech Republic went well.      “There were 60 entries all in good...

Bull Terriers, Miniature - week 20Updated : 12/05/2017

ONE OF the driest April’s on record, and I’m loving it! No wet, muddy dogs to contend with – bliss! Enjoy it while you can, it can’t last forever.      Results from the National (I find rather confusing calling it the National, coming as it does, hot on the heels of National Terri...

Bull Terriers, Miniature - week 18Updated : 27/04/2017

WHERE has April gone? Lost in dry, sunny weather and making the most of it at ours!      Results from National Terrier where Linda McGregor found her BCC and BOB in Michael Kastner’s Bullrich Catch Me If You Can. This was her third CC and so Michael is rewarded for all his hard work and dedication ...

Bull Terriers - week 16Updated : 13/04/2017

AT NORTHERN Provincial BTC they held an open and trophy show including four classes for Miniature Bull Terriers. The judge for the open show was Teresa Westwood (Tulsadoom) and the judge for the Minis and trophies was Frank Dyson.      BIS went to the dog Bakewell’s Bullyview Dressed To Impress (Bi...

Bull Terriers, Miniature - week 14Updated : 04/04/2017

SO NATIONAL Terrier was last weekend, one of my favourite shows and I was sorry to miss it this year. The entry this year was 33, which I understand would have been greater barr for some confusion with the closing date which I know stopped two or three people getting their entries in on time – despite a frantic plea to...

Bull Terriers, Miniature - week 10Updated : 03/03/2017

THE BULL Terrier Trophy show weekend went with a swing. The committee seemed to have pushed the boat out to make this year special, with a seminar from Norma Smith, a display of some of Raymond Oppenheimer’s paintings and a celebratory 130th anniversary cake to auction. The show seemed busier than the last couple of ye...

Bull Terriers, Miniatures - week 8Updated : 17/02/2017

THERE’S been a fairly active debate on Facebook recently regarding the virtue of ‘specialist’ judges and whether or not the Minis have the right to feel aggrieved, as many of us do by the fact that, despite the Mini entry far out-stripping the BT entry again at Crufts this year, the Minis find themselves &l...

Bull Terriers, Miniature - week 7Updated : 10/02/2017

THANKS to Sylvia Monaghan who’s been in touch to let me know that Derby Canine Society is putting MBT classes on for the first time on April 16 at Alfreton Leisure Centre, which is a good, central location.      This time round it seems that an all-rounder has been allocated to judge, but Sylvia ha...

Bull Terriers, Miniature - week 6Updated : 02/02/2017

INTERESTINGLY, although Bull Terriers have a total of seven new CC judges for 2017, Minis have none this year. It’s fair to say that there’s has been some disquiet on the BT front as none of the seven new faces are ‘specialists’ – three are ‘all-rounders’ from overseas (US, Belgium a...

Bull Terriers, Miniature - week 5Updated : 27/01/2017

I’VE HAD a message from Annabelle Twyman to advise a change of Min judge at the EABTC club show, with Andrea Newberry now doing the honours.      Entry for Manchester dog show (without CCs) was 13 dogs making 15 entries, excellent for a Thursday in January, especially considering that the BTs, who ...

Bull Terriers, Miniature - week 2Updated : 06/01/2017

HAPPY new year to one and all. The year kicked off with great news for us, with our dearly beloved Ch Grandopera Macchiato being awarded top Mini in Dog World’s annual completion. Proud is an understatement, especially as her mother, Ch Grandopera Global Warming, was top brood bitch which, along with her sire, Bullyon ...

Bull Terriers, Miniature - week 52Updated : 19/12/2016

SO THE MBTC Christmas family open show was a huge success. Carolyn Lambert tackled the 48 dogs entered and awarded BD and BIS to Mark Dodwell’s Aloukana Hold Your Fire. BB and RBIS was Steph White and Jay’s Kocoba’s Seaquest Chantilly by Aminirumpus. Dorne Vickers’ Duvessa Delphine was BP.  &n...

Bull Terriers, Miniature - week 50Updated : 12/12/2016

LORD – YOU’RE all going to think I’ve dropped off the face of the earth, I know, but it’s been one of those months. We attended the Dutch BTC international show in Leiden where Minis are scheduled on the Saturday. Dogs were judged by Yvette Capriano and bitches by Becky Poole.    &nb...

Bull Terriers, Miniature - week 42Updated : 14/10/2016

DOM AND I are fresh back from Spain where we had the pleasure of judging Bull Terriers and Miniatures at the CBTE Show in Talevera. The standard of the exhibits was pleasingly high.      BOB Miniature was Ruben BraBa’s outstandingly masculine and typy solid black brindle, Romeo of Mulhacen Bulls,...

Bull Terriers, Miniature - week 40Updated : 30/09/2016

THE ROYAL Court Hotel provided an excellent back drop to the MBTC’s international team event and championship show weekend and the Indian summer continued long enough provide warmth and sunshine each day.      Committee and visitors started to arrive on Friday with events proper getting off to an...

Bull Terriers, Miniature - week 38Updated : 15/09/2016

WELL, ITS dirty work… but someone has to do it! Here I am, exhausted with the effort of (massively) enjoying myself judging the Hungarian Central European Trophy and championship show just outside of Budapest. The Hungarian Club don’t do things by halves, which meant that Dom and I co-judged the Mini championshi...
