Winning Trophies for Dog Breeders

Additionally, we have had many wins in Ireland, making two Borders into Irish Champions, Spanwise In the Pink and his daughter, Spanwise Princess Cara at Bonosue. In 1998, Spanwise was declared Top Breeder of Border Terriers in Ireland by Pedigree Chum and Dogs Review.


Our wins at open show level are too numerous to mention, including many Best in Shows, Best Pup in Shows, Reserve Best in Shows, and Reserve Best Pup in Show.


Entering the Pick of the Litter Competition almost every year until it sadly finished, we always ended up in the top 20 pups in the country. We were runner-up once in 2002/2003 with Bonosue Ozymandias J.W Sh.C.M., and also won in 2003/2004 with Bonosue Play Girl to Spanwise. Sadly, Finn was put to sleep in 2012. In 2004/2005, we won Best Terrier with Bonosue Play Mate Sh.C.M.
