                                           A NOTE FROM MICHAEL YATES

                                                          Judge of the 2009 Specialty
Sorry for the delay in writing to you. I would like to thank everyone involved in organizing and running your show.
I was truly honored to be selected as the judge for the 2019 National Specialty and would like to thank you for the wonderful gift you presented me.
They are a beautiful treasure that will remind me of your show for ever.
 The Committee should be proud of the event and the wonderful trophy table.  The breeders, exhibitors and owner should also be very proud of the excellent quality of the breed that was on display at your national as well as their sportsmanship.
 The quality of your dogs was excellent and they would be competitive anywhere in the world.
 Again, thank you for your hospitality and the opportunity to judge your dogs.
Michael Yates

The 2019 National Specialty, the "Squibs Mercier Staffordshire Bull Terrier Club of Canada's National Specialty Show" (EVENT # 192204) will be held August 4th and judged by Michael Yates from Australia.  This is an extraordinary showcase for our breed at Canada's largest outdoor show.  Our last National held there in 2017,  with an entry of over 50 staffords.  We would like our breed to be well represented again and hold an incredible event for the dogs, exhibitors, judges and spectators.  We will be promoting not only conformation but performance and juniors as well!  National Specialties are very important and a great opportunity to educate the public.
