He started with a hard bitten red terrier bitch (who's name escapes me right now) and he put that to a quality ESS dog.

I remember, as a kid, meeting him close to where i live now. All i wanted to hear was about his working terriers and he's telling me his best bitch is in pup to a spaniel... I was devistated..!

Plenty of others thought the same too, Ste had some of the best digging dogs around and this was sacrilage..!

He bred his litter and started working three of them. The ammount of gear they put up was fantastic and heads started to turn. Those first ones were nailers to ground too, Ste never really quit that game. He then put them to a sound beagle and hunted them like a mini hound pack. It was a revelation back then. From that blood he had all he needed. Surplus stuff was much sought after, his gear was very good. He knew what blood worked with what and always moved forward with his dogs...

Ste was a legend to in this city, a man of vision, great hunter and an allround nice guy, who never had a bad word for anyone... This class is a fitting tribute.

I suppose it's the same as lurchers really. Under 23" category for example. You can get all shapes and sizes. 3/4 bull to 3/4 whippet and everything in between. Rough. Smooth. Long. Short. Fat. Thin.

 

Judge just picks one he likes the look and feel of as far as I know?

Thats my thoughts too Gaz.

 

No more difficult than judging lurchers, provided you've got the right judge.
