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.

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.

Cosmo unfortunately suffered from two unusual conditions, early onset laryngeal paralysis and a severe heart condition.

A mellow, sweet dog who handled his challenges with grace.

“Ada” Ch Horizon’s Harlequin Romance, RN

“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.

Anna Nicole

“Anna Nicole” Nuance Nonconformance

By Ch Brummagem Chips Ahoy, ROM ex Am/Can Ch. Horizon’s Harlequin Romance, RN
My heart dog, no question about it. So full of personality, an adorable little bundle of type and the essence of Bull Terrier. Unfortunately she had the recessive brown or liver pigmentation gene, which held her back in the show ring, but not the whelping box, where she produced both the 2008 Silverwood Winner and Reserve Colored Bitch in the same litter, for which she was recognized with the 2008 Eva Weatherill Brood Bitch trophy from the BTCA.Read more about Anna on her page

red and white bull terrier
Am/Can Ch Nuance Nonsense, ROM, RATS by Ch Silmaril Scarlet Knight ex Nuance Nonconformance 2006-2021

Easily my most successful show dog, Marley is greatly missed, Silverwood winner, Barn Hunt natural, and just an all around sweet dog, except with varmints. She lived a long and productive life and was not only a Silverwood winner and Top Bull Terrier in Canada in 2008, she became a Brood Bitch Emeritus with her only litter where 3 of the 5 puppies finished their BTCA ROM titles. She lived to be 15 and loved being shown in veterans every chance she got. What a great dog!

Nuance Night Moves
“Phoebe” Nuance Night Moves

by Ch Old Forge Tug McGraw at Chevalier ROM ex Ch Nuance Night and Day, ROM (2007-2021)

Phoebe was a daughter of Nikki, Ch Nuance Night Moves. She finished her championship, but never achieved quite the level of dog show stardom of either parent. She lived with her mother and her owners, Warren, Denise, and Lindsay Myers in Clarkston Michigan and frequently attended car shows with her family. She is shown here getting a major under Carl Pew.
