​​Sam is a son to the Australian Breed Record Holder, Supreme  Champion Castlebar Crown Jester, "Joker", who is completely adored by Racheal Bawden, from Castlebar Staffords.

Sam and I have been in the show ring together since the end of 2012 after Liz kindly offered me to campaign him in our home town, Perth, Western Australia.​Sam has had a fantastic career to date. He attained his Australian Champion title with ease and excels in Specialty shows across Australia. Together, Sam and I have had some major acheivements including multi Runner Up Best In Shows (OS), Multi State Bred In Shows, Multi Best In Groups, Multi Best State Bred in Groups and Multi Best of Breeds. Sam's superb movement, level topline, freely moving rear end movement, strength in his hind quaters, strong under jaw and smashing head are taking him all the way to the top. Sam's GRAND CHAMPION Title is getting closer by the minute!

In November 2013, Sam was awarded BEST IN SPECIALTY SHOW, by judge Celeste Meier (Stoneheart). The acheivement is one that we will never forget. It was an honor to receive it from a judge who has bred some of Australia's top winning and producing Staffords.

Liz, congratulations on breeding such a beautiful example of this breed,

inside and out.

​​Flirt and her sister, Whistle, hit the ring at the end of 2013. To date, the duo have had some extremely successful wins at Specialty level.


Frances from Westrova Staffords kindly offered me the lead to campaigne little flirt. I have found showing Flirt to date an absolute pleasure to show. Being a baby, we like to ensure they have some fun in the ring so its all about having a good time and enjoying the ring.


I find Flirt to be extremely well balanced, structually sound, extremely pretty and cheeky as! Hopefully the fun will continue and Flirt will have a promising future.
