Linking The Past To The Present - Part 6
There are many other items that are of historical note that Gerald and Gwen left behind and a great place to see such memorabilia is at the Staffordshire Bull Terrier Heritage Centre, Albert Street, Wednesbury, WS10 7EW. The Centre has recently opened at this new venue and there is a separate article in The Stafford Knot covering this prestigious event.
But for now, I will leave you with the words of Gerald Dudley himself, the link for me from the past to the present - a true gentleman of whom I have fond memories:
"Once a Stafford owner, always a Stafford owner, is a very common remark to be heard in all spheres of life, so what better compliment can be handed out to any Breed.
This dog has certainly proved himself to be "The Sportsman" and we have to thank our predecessors who bred and passed such a specimen along to us, so let us, therefore, keep him as such, however much our opinions may differ with respect to any progress made in appearance etc., and we shall have the satisfaction of knowing that we have done our part and be able to pass along the most Loveable, Intelligent, Fearless and above all, The Greatest Pal man, woman or child ever had."
