We are looking forward to 2012 in the show ring with our smooth boy Mirrac – Opdyke’s Midnight Miracle making his debut in the Irish Show ring .  We will continue to campaign our fabulous young boy Robbie and look forward to bringing him to Crufts 2012.  Also looking foward to our young girl Niamh – Islamorada Ruby Tuesday hitting the ring.  We will continue to show Mia and Hemlock and last but not least our gorgeous Mia & Robbie Bulabos babies, Ollie and Poppy, who will be making their debut in the Irish Show ring in 2012 as will Brackin owned by PJ and Mary O Rourke.  Lots to look forward to.

13th December 2011 – Mia & Robbie’s puppies gone to their new homes

Posted on Wednesday, December 28th, 2011

As well as attending the South of England show it was a very busy weekend for us with Mia and Robbie’s puppies going to their new homes.  We are absolutely delighted with their placements and really couldn’t have wished for better homes for them.  It made it that bit easier handing them over knowing that they are going to be so well taken care of and loved.  We are so looking forward to seeing them in the show ring and we wish you all the very best.   Big slobbery hugs and kisses from everyone at Bulabos.

South of England St Bernard Club Championship Show 11th December 2011

Posted on Wednesday, December 28th, 2011

On Saturday the 11th December we traveled to the South Of England St Bernard Club Show with Robbie.  Judge on the day was Ms Karen Fitzsimmons who placed Robbie 2nd in Open Dog.

It was a great weekend meeting up with some friends and having some good fun.  It was lovely to hear such nice comments about Robbie from breed specialist people in attendance at the show.
