2016 in Review

Posted on Saturday, January 21st, 2017

Another super year for Bulabos Saint Bernard’s in the show ring.  Attending only 16 Irish Championship Show this year (less than half) we are delighted that Chloe “Ir Ch, Intl Ch Bulabos Just A Flirt, Ir Jnr Ch, CJW’14 can now add Annual Champion 201 to her titles!  Chloe also gained her International Champion Title this year.  The Lovely Lilly “Ir Ch Bulabos Glass Slipper” finished the year as the top winning female Saint Bernard (LH) in Ireland.  From 16 shows attended Bulabos took 40 Green Stars, multiple Reserve Green Stars, CACIB’s, Best of Breeds, Reserve Best of Breeds, Group Shortlisting’s, Group Placing’s and a fabulous Group win and 4th Best in Show for Jack “Ir Ch Bulabos Jack of Diamonds”.  We also have a new champion, JJ “Ir Ch Bulabos The Ice Man”.  Across the seas in the UK we had the privilege of being awarded Bitch CC and Reserve Best of Breed with Lilly under breed specialist Ms Hazel Needham.  A very proud moment and one achieved by so few Irish Saint Bernard Breeders with their own breeding.  Not forgetting “Jack” who took Dog CC and BOB at Windsor Championship Show 2016 under breed specialist Mr Tan Nagrecha.  Thank you to the all of the judges who recognised our dogs throughout the  year and a special word of thanks to Dione Fitzsimmons (Fitzkin Dobermans) for all her continued help and support - a rock as always.  Thanks also to Laura Whan and Stephanie Kelly for stepping in when the need arose.  All in all – not a bad year for Bulabos !

The cream always rises to the top

Fermoy International Championship Show & South Tipperary Championship Show 30th April & 1st May 2016

Posted on Saturday, January 21st, 2017

WOW WOW WOW…..What an absolute fantastic weekend for Bulabos.  Saturday was Fermoy Canine Club International Show which took place in our hometown of Clonmel.  Our Breed judge was Mr Paulsen (Norway).  All four green stars, four CACIB’s and two Best of Breeds and two Reserve Best of Breeds went to Bulabos.  Jack and Lilly took Green Star Dog and Bitch and both CACIB’s (LH) with Jack taking Best of Breed and Lilly taking Reserve Best of Breed, JJ and Chloe take Green Star Dog and Bitch and both CAICB’s (SH) with JJ taking Best of Breed and Chloe taking Reserve Best of Breed.  Jack then goes all the way and WINS GROUP 2 under group Judge Dr. Hjorth (Norway) and 4th BEST IN SHOW under Mrs Noreen Clarke (Ireland)!!!!  This is a fantastic achievement given that Jack’s Best of Breed and Group win was awarded by two International Judges based solely on the calibre of Jack as a representation of the breed.  A very big thank you to Mrs Noreen Clarke for awarding Jack 4th Best in Show.  Sunday a short drive to Thurles for he South Tipperary Canine Club Championship Show where Jack and Lilly once again take both Green Stars (LH) with Jack taking Best of Breed and Lilly taking Reserve Best of Breed.  Jack went on to take a very nice group 4th under group judge Mr K. Lovell.  What a fantastic weekend and certainly one to remember.
