For the second year in a row Jack takes best of breed at Crufts 2018 from an entry of 125 Saint Bernards, the highest entry in 25 years.  The icing on the cake is that this was Jack’s third and crowning CC to gain his UK Champion Title.  This is the third consecutive year that Bulabos Saint Bernards have taken a CC at the most prestigious and biggest dog show in the world and we are proud to say we are the only Irish Saint Bernard Breeders to have won Best of Breed at Crufts with our own breeding.  A huge thank you to our breed specialist judge this year Mrs Norma Goodwin for thinking so highly of Jack and awarding him his crowning CC.

O’Sullivan Ir Ch/Intl Ch Bulabos Jack of Diamonds.  A stunning dog shown in immaculate condition.  He has a gorgeous head, strong muzzle good deep lips and correct dentation.  He has nice dark eyes a good reach of neck with a straight top line and good angulation.  He moved soundly and at an unhurried pace he was handled well, it was a pleasure awarding him his 3rd British CC and Best of Breed.

**************Bulabos Takes BEST OF BREED CRUFTS 2017*************

Posted on March 21st, 2017

jack-crufts-2 Wow Wow Wow!  What an absolutely fantastic day for us – our fabulous homebred boy “Jack” Ir Ch Bulabos Jack Of Diamonds takes 1st in Open Dog Class, Dog CC and BEST OF BREED at CRUFTS 2017 out of an entry of 89 dogs. To say we are delighted is an understatement, having done so well at Crufts last year with Jack’s daughter “Lilly” Ir Ch Bulabos Glass Slipper taking Bitch CC and Reserve Best of Breed, Jack did us proud this year going one better than his daughter and taking BEST OF BREED.   This has only ever been achieved by one other Irish Breeder and is testament to our quality breeding programme – only breeding top quality dogs for the purpose of continuing, strengthening and improving our lines .  We would like to thank our breed judge on the day, Breed Specialist Rosalie Cobley for thinking so highly of Jack and awarding him such an honour.  A very special day and one to be treasured.

Saint Bernard Crufts Critique 2017

OD (10,2) 1 O’Sullivan’s Ir Ch Bulabos Jack Of Diamonds, an excellent representative of the breed who cannot fail to impress.  Full of breed type.  Super head with good dentition, clean dark eyes, & benevolent expression.  Good reach of neck, good width & depth, presenting a totally balanced outlook, finished with excellent coat & condition.  His excellent movement proved him to be totally at one with his clever handler.  His standard correct colour, white with patches of orange was spotless.  CC & BOB

2016 in Review

Posted on 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
