Bull Terrier Club Trophy Show Report 2016

This year’s Bull Terrier Club Trophy Show was quite an interesting one, or at least the results were – with each of the winners of the main UK events themselves being beaten in other events. It just goes to show how even the most highly regarded of judges can view the same top animals on the same day, yet interpret their various strengths and weaknesses in different ways. It would of course get very boring, very quickly if they didn’t!

So what did those judges see … well I’ve cobbled their reports, some photographs and pedigrees together into one big feature and it is now available to download should you wish to have a copy. If so just follow the next few steps and all being well you’ll have it in a moment or two…

  1. Right-click on the download link below.
  2. Select ‘Save Target As’ or ‘Save Link As’ from the menu.
  3. Specify where you’d like to download the file to (e.g. Desktop, My Documents etc).
  4. Click on the ‘Save’ button.
  5. Wait for it to arrive.

* Note: These are instructions for desktop computers and laptops only; the procedure may be different for various mobile devices like the Smartphone or iPad.

With this being one of the world’s biggest Bull Terrier events, I’d imagine it would be of great interest to many, so please circulate this file as you see fit. There are Social Media buttons above and below if you’d like to use them to inform the crowds on Facebook and Twitter etc.
