FROM TIME TO TIME, I AM GOING TO POST PHOTOS OF BULLDOGS OF OUR (THE BULLDOG FANCY) DISTANT PAST.  THE DOGS IN THIS AREA PRE-DATE MY HAVING BULLDOGS.  ENJOY THEIR PHOTOS.


 CH. VARDONA FROSTY SNOWMAN
 BREEDER/OWNER/HANDLER:  DR. EDWARD M. VARDON

 Shown in the late 1950s and early 1960s. 

 Frosty Snowman may have been the most dominant winning Bulldog in history.  He was Best of Breed at the BCA National Specialty for 5 consecutive  years. His record of 40 Specialty Bests of Breed stood for more than 40 years.  He was the #1 Non-Sporting Dog in America for 3 consecutive  years and a top 10 All-breeds in each of those years.



 Sorry for the poor quality of this photo.  It is, however, a wonderful picture.  If I can find a better copy, I'll replace it.










 CH. KIPPAX FEARNOUGHT 
 BEST IN SHOW..WESTMINSTER  KENNEL CLUB 
 JUDGE:  MR. ALBERT VAN COURT 
 OWNER:  DR. JOHN SAYLOR 
 HANDLER:  HARRY SANGSTER 
 02/55 

This photo is here because Fearnought was one of the greats of the past and these photos are hard to find.  I never had the benefit of seeing  Fearnought, since he showed before I started.
 
 In 1957, Fearnought won 6 Non-Sporting Groups...He went Best In Show all 6 times.  

 As a sire, Fearnought produced 31 Champions...more than any Bulldog up to that time.




   CH. PUGILIST
   Born:  07/25/26


   Another famous great dog of our breed's past. 

















  CH. STRATHWAY PRINCE ALBERT
  BEST IN SHOW...WESTMINSTER KENNEL CLUB
  OWNER:  ALEX H. STEWART
  1913



  The 1st Bulldog to win Best In Show at Westminster.
