Eng/Am Ch Ormandy's Burson's Bounty ex ?? of Hylo
Thanks to Douglas Rose for providing me with this photo from 1970 which shows Laura with my first and only Jr. Showmanship Trophy. Laura was one of the world's sweetest Bull Terriers and a great introduction to the breed. I was fortunate to have purchased her from Douglas, who encouraged my interest in the breed and BTCA events.

This photo was taken when Rachel was 12.
Rachel was my second Bull Terrier and my first "real" show dog. She was honored by the Bull Terrier Club of America as the first dog to win its Versatility Award and also as a Brood Bitch Emeritus. To date, she is the only Bull Terrier to receive both these awards She was the Queen of the Bull Terriers in her mind, and in mine. She is sadly missed.

By Am/Can Ch. Jocko's Caesar of Magor, ROM ex Am Ch. Westbrook Walking Song, C.D., ROM, TT
Mitch was a Silverwood finalist at the 1989 Detroit Silverwood. He was a sweet boy, a keen stud dog who was still flirting through the week he died. He was a bit shy, totally ball obsessed, and the most beautiful dog I've owned. This photo was taken when Mitch was about 2 years old. A great loss.

Am/Can Ch Jocko's Caesar of Magor, ROM ex Ch Westbrook Walking Song, C.D., ROM, TT
"Toby" was a Silverwood finalist in both 1998 and 1999. A lively personality, he lived with Tony and Karen (Andrews) Micallef. Karen is a vet tech and I'm sure her professional care contributed to Toby's longevity.

"Ada" Am/Can Ch. Horizon's Harlequin Romance

"Ada" 1998-2013
Ada is the granddaughter of Ch Nuance Nominee and was bred by Kevin & Patti Gardner and Paula & Rocce Grecco. I purchased her from Kevin in 1998 and she has been the "new foundation" for Nuance since that time. She had a lively temperament, but was very sweet with people and all dogs. Ada stayed in remarkably good condition through her 15 years and would still hucklebutt around the yard with granddaughter Marley until shortly before she died.
