Dutch CHAMPION Testwood Tom

Tom started his holiday in Belgium by winning the CCBest of Breedand Group 2 at an International Championship show in Holland. A week later at the International Championship show in Lokerse, Belgium, he won the CC, Best of Breed, the Group and then RESERVE BEST IN SHOW.

The following week Tom won the CC and BOB at the large Brussels International Championship show, beating many top dogs from the UK and Europe

On 20 May, Testwood Tom won BEST IN SHOW at the 3-day International Championship Show in Arnhem, Holland. 

Tom is such a fit bulldog that Wout takes him for a fast 3-mile run before a show to take the edge off his energy. Yet he still stormed into the Best in Show ring at the end of the day, straight from winning the group, with energy to spare! 

Thank you Wout for believing in him and for handling him so well.    

On 24 March 2013, Tom won the CAC/IB with Best of Breed, under Judge Mrs C Kok-Van der Horst and then went on to win the Group under judge Mrs I. Y. Onstenk-Schenk at the 2-Day 19th International Championship Show in Leiden, Holland

Tom was then 4th Best in Show under Judge Mrs P. C. Zwaartman-Pinster

Tom was handled expertly by Wout van Huyck of Pride of the Woods Bulldogs in Belgium

This is a fantastic achievement for a UK Bulldog in Europe

Sandie (in case she wanted to change her mind)

His crowning moment

USA Champion Testwood A Kind of Magic

Who went from Testwood to the USA as a 10-week old puppy to join a small show kennel of boxers owned by Sandie Dietz

Ace is sired by Champion Makeneys Magical Moments (Toby) out of my own Testwood Ring a Roses (Lana)

Main photo taken on the day in 2009 that Ace became a Champion around his 2nd birthday and made all Sandie’s dreams come true

Ace helped himself to one of Sandie's bitches without anyone knowing and the resulting litter produced USA CH SBK Sweet Talking Guy and USA CH SBK More than a Dream. Needless to say Sandie forgave him!!!

Belgian Champion Testwood Earth Angel of Jumano

Angel was sold as an 8-week old puppy to Julie Norris of Jumano Bulldogs.  Julie campaigned her successfully for a few months and then allowed her friends Wout and Igna at the Pride of the Woods Bulldogs in Belgium to have her to integrate her bloodlines with top continental lines and also to show her. 

She achieved a lot of top wins, becoming a Belgian Champion

Cherryside Cuesta Rey ay Testwood

Arun was only shown for about a year, but he was very successful in the show ring, qualifying for Crufts several times and winning Best In Show, Res Best in Show, Best Puppy and several Working Groups at large Open Shows

Testwood Bouzy Rouge

Florence has really done well in the show ring. She has only been to 6 championship shows but has won 1st in 4 of them, including Best Boxer Puppy at Bournemouth Championship Show and in the last few for Working Group Puppy (at 8 months old). Also she was Best Boxer Puppy at LKA on 9 December.

She has also been shown at a couple of Open Shows, winning Best boxer puppy and Working Group Puppy 1 at one, and Reserve Best of Breed at another.

She started 2006 very well by winning 1st at Essex & Eastern Counties Championship Show and 2nd at Welsh Championship Show, as well as 1st at London & Home Counties Boxer Club


Testwood Takoma

Celie won very well in the show ring, despite finding the whole thing completely boring. Domestic responsibilities at the time meant that she was only lightly shown for about a year, but she qualified for Crufts numerous times and won many Best Puppy and Best of Breeds at Open Shows.

Her pedigree goes back to my first show boxer, Redfyre Glorious Encore (2 Res CC's), who was born in 1981.

Celie is the mother of Testwood Bouzy Rouge and Testwood Baton Rouge. She is also the mother of Testwood Daydream Believer at Waiheke, who was sold to Sam and Kevin Frary as a promising 8-week old puppy and won Res CC at Windsor Championship Show 2006, to add to his many 1st prizes at Open and Championship Shows.

This picture shows Arun's beautiful red/white daughter, Rebox Radiance at Waiheke (Grace), and her best friend Testwood Daydream Believer at Waiheke (Moko), a son of Testwood Takoma. They are both owned by Sam and Kevin Frary

Grace was Sam's first show dog and has won many firsts at Championship Shows, including Best of Breed at Bath Championship Show 2006 and 1st Limit Bitch at Birmingham Championship Show (stud book qualifier), together with many Best of Breed wins at Open Shows.

Moko left Testwood as a promising 8-week old boxer puppy, and before he was 2 years old, had won many 1sts at Championship Shows, including Res CC at Windsor 2006. He has also won many Best of Breeds at Open Shows
