Staffords - week 7Updated : 09/02/2017

LAST WEEKEND saw the SBTC limit show at Brookfield’s, Shareshill, near Wolverhampton, with an entry of 42 making 56. Though entries were lower than last year, there was a great turnout of spectators making for a great atmosphere which lasted right throughout the day as most people stayed to watch all of the judging rig...

Staffords - week 6Updated : 03/02/2017

IT IS WITH sad news that I begin this week. I am sorry to inform you of the death of both David and June Horsfall of the Dennybeck affix. David died in hospital on Jan 28 and June died on the same day at home.      David and June were extremely well-known back in the 1960s and 1970s and were very active ...

Staffords - week 3Updated : 12/01/2017

WELL, WE are half way through January already and I expect we are all looking at our show planners and deciding which shows, judges and clubs we are going to support this year – and which ones we can afford to support!      Last weekend saw the first championship show of the year – Boston. ...

Staffords - week 2Updated : 05/01/2017

ANOTHER quiet week in the Stafford world – maybe due to fewer shows, or maybe because we have been away in Cornwall with the family (two-legged and four-legged) to start 2017 off as we mean to go on – enjoying ourselves!      New year’s day was Coventry LKS where Stephen Dixon judged ...

Staffords - week 1Updated : 29/12/2016

HAPPY New Year! I hope you all had a lovely break and spent time with the ones you love – as well as your family and friends! We have had a few sunny days to get out with your Staffords and walk off a bit of that over-indulgence, I’m sure if your dogs are like mine, they’ve probably had a few extra treats t...

Staffords - week 52Updated : 20/12/2016

WELL, I hope you all had a fantastic Christmas and enjoyed the season of over-indulgence.

Staffords - week 51Updated : 15/12/2016

SO, CHRISTMAS is almost here; just a few more hours for those last minute shoppers! I hope you’re ready to spend some time relaxing with family and friends and though there are fewer shows going on, there are still a few ‘Christmas’ shows coming up over the festive season.      A grea...

Staffords - week 50Updated : 08/12/2016

I don’t yet have any other details to share but I am sure you all join me in sending sincere condolences to Paddy’s family.  &...

Staffords - week 49Updated : 01/12/2016

THE WEEKS are certainly rushing by and Christmas lights and decorations are going up everywhere. Be careful if your Stafford is a bit of a ‘chewer’, there are lots of extra lighting cables around at this time of year so make sure your Festive decorations are ‘Stafford proof’, well, as much as possible...

Staffords - week 48Updated : 24/11/2016

WELL, THE weather has suddenly turned to winter and, if your Staffords are like mine, they are curled up by the fire, not wanting to go outside. Probably just as well that the show season is entering its quieter phase with fewer shows in the calendar over the coming weeks. But there are a few results and news items that I ne...

Staffords - week 47Updated : 18/11/2016

IT IS WITH great sadness and a heavy heart that I have to report the death of yet another stalwart of our breed. Val Finney sadly died following a long and hard-fought battle with cancer.
