Bulldog of the Year
Mrs. M Story, Secretary (July, 1992)

"I have been asked to explain the Bulldog of the Year points scheme and why all the points are not published, and also how the judges are selected.

The Judges are all Championship Show Judges and we do try to pick experienced people. Because so many these days are also exhibitors they are very often engaged in tacking part in the Competition anyway, which makes things rather difficult in some years, especially as we also try to avoid -- although it is not always possible -- judges who have officiated during the previous year. Selection is left to the last possible moment to enable the best available to take part.

Each dog is awarded points -- 100, 70, 60, 50, 40, 30, 20, and the remaining 10 apiece. All three sets of numbers are totalled for each dog and the winner obviously is the one with top score.

This is the method as set up by Mr. Edmonds and Mr. Oppenheimer of the Kennel Club seventeen years ago and which has worked perfectly ever since. The rules require 4 placings and this is compiled with, but in the future the adjudicators will publish the total number of points gained by these 4 dogs only.

The Committee of the Bulldog Club Inc. INVITE these dogs to take part -- there is no automatic entry and no paid entry. They are our guests and as such we want them to enjoy their day and the experience of taking part in one of the most important events of the year. How much nicer it is for them to go home thinking, "I may have been fifth," instead of knowing they were last!!

Neither judges nor exhibitors feel under any pressure and the sole aim is to provide a spectacle of the highest level of the best dogs in the country for the enjoyment of the audience which comes from all over the world and from all interested in dogs, not only Bulldogs.

All those taking part are CC winners and all potential winners of the title Bulldog of the Year -- we hope they will continue to enjoy taking part."

We believe that only eight? dogs are invited to participate in this prestigious event each year.
