Staffords - week 21Updated : 19/05/2017

WELL, WE are almost at the end of May already and we are coming up to the busiest period of the show year. On Saturday May 20 the Scottish SBTC hold its ch show and Sunday May 21 sees SKC. I’ll have the main winners for you in next week’s column.      Nigel Merrick (Magicgem) is judging at Ba...

Staffords - week 20Updated : 12/05/2017

SO, THIS week we have been on holiday in St Mawes, Cornwall. What a beautiful part of the country and the dogs love the garden, they spend as much time as possible chasing each other around – I’m sure your Staffords are just as mad as ours!      A little quieter on the show scene this week wi...

Staffords - week 19Updated : 05/05/2017

I HOPE you all had a great bank holiday weekend and managed to get out and about – we did, and we managed to find the sunshine, but a bit more on that later.      Getting down to business, Gillian Skelly judged at WELKS with an entry of 146 dogs making 159 entries. DCC and BOB was Finney’s Ba...

Staffords - week 18Updated : 28/04/2017

SO, THAT’S another month gone and we are now into the merry month of May! Hope you all enjoyed the long bank holiday weekend and you didn’t get too tangled dancing around your Maypoles! However, if you are reading this before the bank holiday weekend, there are a couple of things that may be of interest to you, i...

Staffords - week 17Updated : 24/04/2017

I HOPE you all had a great Easter weekend. The weather wasn’t really warm enough for lighting the barbecue, but at least it didn’t snow! We did manage to get out with the dogs for a couple of lovely walks – hope you all did too.      Talking about being out and about for walks with your...

Staffords - week 16Updated : 13/04/2017

IT’S A BIT strange, writing these notes – looking forward to the Easter weekend, hoping for sunshine, barbecues and a lovely long weekend spent with family and friends – but by the time most of you read it, it will be behind us, probably a cold, washout of a weekend having eaten and drunk too much! So let&r...

Staffords - week 15Updated : 07/04/2017

SO, BY THE time most of you read this, it will be Easter weekend. Hopefully the weather is good for all of us and it will take our mind off the over-indulgence of chocolate and Hot Cross Buns, even though I started early with the delicious chocolate and orange mini-HCB’s that M&S had in stock – until I got th...

Staffords - week 14Updated : 30/03/2017

WELL, THE clocks have changed, the nights are lighter and it’s starting to feel like summer – famous last words? We’ll see. But things are definitely warming up in the show scene with another two clubs hosting shows last weekend. On Saturday it was the North of Scotland SBTC’s turn with Vicki Butler (...

Staffords - week 13Updated : 23/03/2017

A BUSY weekend for some of our clubs with the Western SBTS holding its open show on Saturday March 18. The judge was Stephen Page with a respectable entry of 40 dogs making 53 entries.      BD and BIS was Rowe’s Illori Akinlana (Antroboss Tempesta Nera ex Oscellsie’s Tiger Lily at Simazyanya)...

Staffords - week 12Updated : 17/03/2017

SO, WHAT an amazing few days Crufts was! I know it is always great but this year it seemed to be extra special for so many reasons. Firstly the DCC and BOB winner, congratulations to Bryn and Julie Allsopp with Rubericla Trailbreaker (Blue) (Ch Ramblestaff Coz I Could ex Ch R Little Bumble Bee). At only just 14 months of age...

Staffords - week 11Updated : 08/03/2017

FIRSTLY, some sad new received from Helen Reaney at Notts and Derby SBTC – Ann Goddard (Tophouse) died after a short battle with cancer. Ann was a very private person and no one knew except close family and friends. She was a very good friend to all of us over the years and she will be greatly missed in the world of St...

Staffords - week 10Updated : 06/03/2017

SO, FOR most of you reading this, you will be taking part in one of the biggest dog showing weekends in the world – Crufts. I hope you are having (or have had) a fabulous time and I will be reporting on the results in a future column.      I have been contacted by Marney Wells, who will also be at ...

Staffords - week 9Updated : 24/02/2017

Staffords - week 8Updated : 16/02/2017

RBIS and BOS was Starolestaff Lady...

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 5Updated : 27/01/2017

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 ...
