Next Steps........Rosie

Rosie has followed her Grandmother Tess into the Showring and has done us proud for a Baby. She qualified for Crufts 2016 at her very first show - Darlington Championship Show, September 18th 2015. She was just 6 months and 6 days old and came 3rd in a very strong Minor Puppy Bitch class of 10, beating a lot of puppies quite a bit older than her. The judge was Maureen Ward, who we thank most sincerely for giving Rosie a flying star. Maureen also gave Tess a 1st place at Bournemouth Championship show in August 2013. Rosie's full results are detailed elsewhere on our website but, at the time of writing this, she has been placed in the first 3 at every show she has been entered in, taking Best Puppy Bitch at South Wales Kennel Association in October 2015 under Elaine Pearson. Elaine also placed Tess 1st at Crufts 2012 in a class of 25 so Rosie is definitely following in Tess's pawprints and, hopefully, she continues to do so!!

Rosie has continued to have a fantastic show career, gaining her Junior Warrant in July 2016 meaning that she too is Crufts qualified for life!!
Along the way she has won Best Puppy In Show at the North East SBTC Limit Show under Craig Stokes in February 2016. She gained her Junior Warrant at Notts and Derby District SBTC Championship Show under Ann Dick when she won Yearling Bitch.

  • firstplace in Junior Bitch at Bournemouth Championship show under Gill Thomas.
  • first place in Graduate Bitch at Northern Counties SBTC Championship Show under Paul Quinn.
  • first place at Driffield Championship Show in Yearling Bitch under Susan Chesters.

We have had a fantastic 12 months showing Rosie - Studstaff Sugar And Spice Of Hamason JW ShCM- and these are just a few of her wins at Championship show level. At Open Shows she has won several Best Puppy In Breed, many Best Of Breeds and been consistently placed in the Terrier Group, having won the Group and was short-listed for Best In Show at Monmouth in June. Rosie has now also gained her Show Certificate of Merit - another accolade that we are absolutely delighted with. We are looking forward to what the future holds.

2017 has been another great year for Rosie in the showring. She qualified for the South Wales Kennel Association Puppy of the Year Competition where she beat over 40 pups of all breeds to reach the semi-finals!!
