OUR DOGS is sorry to have to report that Mrs Sue Garside has lost her top winning Bulldog, Ch Iceglint I'm Alfred, after he was stung in the throat by a bee.

Alfie won 10 CCs, 9 with BOB including BOB at Crufts 2002. 4 BIS at Club Championship Shows, 1 x group 4 (Paignton 2002), group 1 at South Wales 2002 & Group 1 & BIS at WELKS 2002 plus BULLDOG OF THE YEAR 2001, he won the champion stakes at BUBA 2002 & 10 RESERVE CC'S plus 7 BIS at open show level. He was top Bulldog in 2002 and one of the top dogs overall and second top dog in the Utility group. When he attended this year’s Contest of Champions he had his own flag waving fan club in attendance!

Sue says: ‘He was born on the 26th September 1999 and from the moment I saw him I just knew he was the best puppy I had ever seen. He was a joy and a pleasure to own and to live with and never did anything wrong in all of his (short) life.

‘He was the greatest ever showman and never put a foot wrong in the showring - not once.’
Sincere condolences from OUR DOGS to Sue on this sad loss.
