                                                            A SUCCESSFUL SPECIALTY!!

Sunday Morning August 4th, 2019 was sunny at Spruce Meadows, Alberta, where  thirty-five Staffords were presented to Judge Michael Yates.  We were proud of this showcase of our breed, and positive participation of all Stafford lovers.

The incredible organizers of the Specialty, Krista MacPherson and Terrina Maciborski, solicited friends and supporters from across Canada (and the UK) for the amazing gifts & gift baskets presented to the winners and all paricipants.  With the assistance of our Ring Steward, Paul Price, the show ran seamlessly and even the baby puppies behaved professionally (kind of).

But above all THANK YOU to Krista and Terrina for their commitment and effort to stage a stellar Specialty

And thank you to all our supporters, SBTCC members and dog lovers, for your belief in our breed.

                                                          Judge of the 2019 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
