Bull Terrier Club Trophy Show Report 2013

As promised, after the short preview video featured in the last post, we now come to the thoughts of the judges and referees concerned at the recent Bull Terrier Club Trophy Show.

Although there are many big events in the world of the Bull Terrier, it is still widely accepted that this is THE show – the biggest of the big – the one as a breeder or owner you strive to taste success at. Maybe that is not the case for enthusiasts around the world, who might view their own big event as the one to win – but for us in the UK it is beyond doubt.

So what happened on the day back in late February, and how did those judges come to make their decisions? You might have already read their thoughts from other outlets, but for anyone who hasn’t – or indeed anyone who would like a permanent record of them – I’ve put together a huge poster style report of the day’s events for download.

You can have that in just a matter of minutes by downloading it from the link below – simply right-click on it and select ‘Save Target As’ or ‘Save Link As’ from the pop-out menu, then choose a destination on your computer where you’d like to download to. Finally just click your ‘Save’ button and wait for the download to finish – all being well it shouldn’t take too long.

If you’d like to pass the file on to others please do so, given the stature of the event it is something that I’d imagine would be of great interest to many, so as I say circulate it as you see fit. There are Social Media ‘Share’ buttons above and below if you’d like to use them to inform the crowds on Facebook and Twitter etc.

Bull Terrier Club Trophy Show 2013 – Preview Video

Here is the first of a two-part look at the recent Bull Terrier Club Trophy Show. I’ll be working on a large poster style feature containing the judging critiques, photographs, pedigrees and so on – hopefully for sometime later in the week – but for the time being I’ve a short preview video of the day that you might want to see.

It was kindly supplied by Stuart Wilson, the guy who films the events of the day for a special Trophy Show DVD available from the Bull Terrier Club. Full details of how to get the DVD are at the end of this short clip, so you might want to get a pen and paper ready to jot them down.

Many thanks to Stuart and the BTC for supplying and allowing me the use of the video, it’s much appreciated.

If you’d like to watch it you can either click the Youtube tab to the right and choose it from the list there, or easier still just click the link below to be taken directly to it.

Bull Terrier Club Trophy Show Line-Up 2013

Arguably, and indeed most probably in my mind, the most eagerly anticipated Bull Terrier event of the year is the Bull Terrier Club Trophy Show – and as such the list of dogs that are invited to take part is always a talking point.

The line-up for the coming event in February has been known for a while now, and maybe I should have released details at the time they were announced – but I thought I’d hold off and wait for the judges and referees to be confirmed before putting something together.

I’ve now done that and the resulting document is now available to download. Again, the chances are you are already aware of all the details within it, but if you’d like to have a document at hand that you can refer to easily instead of having to search through the Internet each time, then this is perhaps what you’re looking for.

That shouldn’t take too long at all by using the download link below – simply right-click on it, select ‘Save Target As’ or ‘Save Link As’ from the menu, and then just specify where you wish to download it to on your computer.

Once you have it you may circulate it as you see fit, pass it on to whoever you like or even use it on your own website if you like. Similarly if you have friends on Social Media sites that you think might find it useful, please don’t hesitate to notify them by using the ‘share’ buttons above or below…
