Bullmastiffs - week 26Updated : 21/06/2017

THIS YEAR there is a lot less inevitability about results, which makes people like me have to look up the antecedents of the main winners instead of knowing them off by heart!      At Border Union Jan Webster was judging and found her BCC and BOB in McGroarty’s Rysid Hell On Heels Ardhub (Black Sab...

Bullmastiffs - week 25Updated : 14/06/2017

KEN BAINES was judging the breed at Three Counties and found his two top winners in limit. DCC and BOB went to Bown and Beal’s Sundabish Philleas Fogg (Shadowguard Evolved ex S Seduction). BCC went to Latter’s Stoneglad She’s Got The Look (Bullmeredith Who Dares Wins ex Stoneglad Paparazzi).   &n...

Bullmastiffs - week 24Updated : 08/06/2017

SOUTHERN Counties does not offer us CCs but it is always a popular venue for Bullmastiff exhibitors. Howard Ogden was judging and found his BD and BOB in Myers and Morgan’s Ch Old Manila’s Whisky Mac for Optimus (Leathernecks Stealin Hearts ex Nor Ch O M Echo Springs). BB was Myers and Morgan’s Ch/It Ch Opt...

Bullmastiffs - week 23Updated : 31/05/2017

BATH PROVIDED us with one of its calmer days, warm with a little sun and then a faint drizzle. Its normal full in your face weather has provided many folk memories from being towed out of a quagmire to cooking under a scorching sun so Sunday was rather understated!      Sue Searle gave his second CC to M...

Bullmastiffs - week 22Updated : 26/05/2017

ANOTHER back-to-back weekend and again very different results from the two shows. It is a long haul up to Scotland, just as it is a long haul for our Scottish friends to come south of the border, and this does sometimes affect the entry.      At the BSOS show Peter Myers was judging and found his DCC and...

Bullmastiffs - week 21Updated : 17/05/2017

OVERSEAS news to start with this week. Chris Quantrill was judging the Swedish club show and found his BD and BIS in Hyerdunscar Northern Soul (Ch/Aus Sup Ch/Int Ch Costog Mompessons Home Bru ex H Summer at Coulbymoor). While this boy was celebrating in Sweden his sister was keeping up with him in Dublin! Lindley’s H T...

Bullmastiffs - week 20Updated : 11/05/2017

AT THE National Joe Smith was awarding CCs for the first time in Bullmastiffs. BCC and BOB was Lindley’s Hyerdunscar The Big Tease (Ch/Aus Sup Ch/Int Ch Costog Mompessons Home Bru ex H Summer at Coulbymoor) who gained that all-important third big green card on the day and was also shortlisted in the working group. &nb...

Bullmastiffs - week 19Updated : 03/05/2017

IT WAS a bracing day at WELKS, but so nice for the dogs to be outside. Janet Gunn braved the elements and found her DCC and BOB in her junior winner, Forsythe and McGroarty’s Ardhub Black Bomb at Findhorn (Black Sabbath at A Amber Dream ex A Black Azz Koal). As if that wasn’t enough excitement and rejoicing for o...

Bullmastiffs - week 18Updated : 27/04/2017

THE SHOW season is now well underway and the big champ shows are already selecting their judges for 2019 and 2020. The Bullmastiff breed council held its judging meeting and considered the problems of ensuring that its judging lists were up to date and contained the names of people that the council was happy to recommend. &...

Bullmastiffs - week 17Updated : 20/04/2017

WELL, I bet Peter Myers wouldn’t have swapped the result on Easter Saturday for an Easter egg whatever its size and content! At W/PB Association of Wales Ch Old Manila’s Whisky Mac for Optimus (Am Ch Leathernecks Stealin Hearts ex Norw Ch OM Echo Springs) celebrated the spring weather by winning BOB, the group an...

Bullmastiffs - week 16Updated : 12/04/2017

PERHAPS this year will prove to be a showstopper with good weather for all shows, but then again perhaps it won’t, so we had better rejoice on each individual occasion when it does happen!      The SBS held its open show at Chieveley in glorious sunshine. Caroline Ashby was the judge and she found ...

Bullmastiffs - week 15Updated : 05/04/2017

I DON’T know how they do it, whether they have a hot line to heaven or what but the British Bullmastiff League have done it again! Yes, it held its open show at Polesworth, outside and in glorious sunshine! Perhaps they are the harbingers of spring and I have only just realised it?      Debbie Stan...

Bullmastiffs - week 13Updated : 23/03/2017

WE HAVE come to the end of the respective AGMs for our clubs and the attendance was along the lines of one man and his dog but without the dog. I hope that this is because you are satisfied with the way the club is being run and not because you are suffering from that painful affliction called apathy. Clubs are struggling to...

Bullmastiffs - week 12Updated : 16/03/2017

WELL I told you that Steve Hall would do his own thing and I bet very few of you had money on the final winners!      DCC and BOB was Bown and Wilfort’s Sundabish Mr Majeika (Ch Optimus Barrington ex Ch S Suzie Wong) from post graduate. BCC was Dempsey’s Optimus Daphne (Barrington ex Ch Optim...

Bullmastiffs - week 11Updated : 07/03/2017

I WOULD just like to point out that I am not Mystic Meg and that I am writing these notes before Crufts even begins so do not expect any information about who did what! You will have to look elsewhere in the paper to find the results. All I can say is that I hope you had a good day, enjoyable but not too exhausting and I wil...

Bullmastiffs - week 10Updated : 01/03/2017

ARE YOU ready for the fray? Even if you don’t go to Crufts, you will not be able to ignore it totally so try to take an objective view of all the razzamatazz and appreciate some beautiful dogs.      Each year I ask our Crufts judge if they would be kind enough to introduce themselves. This year our...

Bullmastiffs - week 9Updated : 23/02/2017

THE NORTHERN held its open show with John Purnell judging. BB and BIS was Lindley’s Hyerdunscar The Big Tease (Ch/Aus Sup Ch Costog Mompessons Home Bru ex Hyerdunscar Summer at Coulbymoor). BD and RBIS was Spencer’s Shadowguard High Octane at Islekeeper (Licassa Captain Archembeau ex S Rythm N Joy). RBB and BV we...

Bullmastiffs - week 8Updated : 17/02/2017

THE BULLMASTIFF Winner event took place at the Royal Court. Before I talk about the winners themselves I think it only appropriate to point out that were it not for a small team of incredibly hard working individuals, an event like this could never take place.      If you are already a member of a breed ...

Bullmastiffs - week 7Updated : 09/02/2017

CRUFTS is getting nearer by the minute so start thinking about it sooner rather than later! In the next couple of weeks I will share a few ideas with you on how to survive ether the ordeal or the highlight of your showing year, depending on your point of view.      In the meantime let me draw your attent...

Bullmastiffs - week 6Updated : 01/02/2017

AT LICHFIELD the breed was judged by Simon Luxmoore and he found his BOB in Davies’ Hyerdunscar On A Mission with Coulbymoor, who went on to take the working group under Mick Taylor and then to cap it all took RBIS under John Thirlwell. It was generally a good day for Bullmastiffs.      At the Winn...
