Well another year draws to an end.
Bulldog Holidays had its busiest year ever and kept us all working 7 days a week all summer long and most of the winter too.
All year round we try to make improvements to the kennels and surrounding area and are very pleased with what we have managed to do this year, all looking very pretty with decking, water features etc .
Xmas holiday Bulldog Holidays is fully booked and we look forward to seeing bulldogs that come year after year.
Hillplace Lay Lady Lay was shown from one end of UK to the other and has done us proud a little star she is to show .
We bred 4 litters 2 litters were self whelped , the 2 that did not most certainly gave it a good go and both did give birth but due to veterinary reasons were not able to carry on but we will try again with them next year as both are quite capable of self whelping .
Hillplace Gretal had her 2nd litter and self whelped and Hillplace Trinity gave us 7 live self whelped pups.
We kept 3 puppies this year Hillplace Miranda the last UK daughter of Edition of Luxe Kepi Blanc out of our Hillplace Ugly Betty and Hillplace Kingston and Hillplace Olivia both dark brindles both by Hillplace Iron Man out of Hillplace Trinity.
We are very pleased with the health of the Hillplace dogs and their self whelping ability but we are always looking to improve . It has been wonderful to see some of our dogs that we bred and sold in the ring winning and also their descendants who carry on the good health and conformation .
Bulldog Holidays are very busy please book early as we do not like to turn anyone down
Bulldog rescue have a review page on boarding kennels if your bulldog has stayed with us and you would like to write a review on Bulldog holidays.

In those dreadful Internet sites such as epupz etc there are so called ( breeders ) selling white bulldogs with blue eyes, black and tan bulldogs , black bulldogs, lilac bulldogs.
These colours are not desirable in the breed, in years gone by these pups were given away without papers.
People are being ripped off for thousands and thousands of pounds for pups that are the incorrect colour and should not be bred or bred from.
People are told they are rare, good breeders do not breed these and do not stand black and tan , black or any other undesirable colour at stud.

Hillplace Goodwill is for sale to very , very good pet home. To people we know only. He is no longer for breeding and does not like shows so just loving pet home. He lives in our kennel and we wish him to enjoy family life
Periodically we would like to keep you up to date with the goings on here at Bulldog Rescue, I hope you don't mind.
Bulldog Rescue would like to thank you for your continued support and ask for your help.
With more and more bulldogs being bred, more and more bulldogs are bypassing the breed rescue system, some are going into all breed shelters, some go to other bullbreed rescues and some simply end up as adverts on ePupz. This is causing us to worry, not just because we may not know if something you have bred that is registered with us is rehomed, but also that some of the smaller so called "specialist" rescues are not where we would like to see these dogs end up, many of these dogs are ending up in totally unsuitable homes and there's nothing we can do about it.
A bulldog that recently went into Battersea was rehomed in less than 24 hours and since the restructure at Battersea Dogs Home Bulldog Rescue no longer have the option to take them and to be honest we are are not even told about them unless a member of the public alerts us to them via their web site.
We find it difficult to understand how a dog can be placed so quickly because
a) they have given themselves not time to get to know the dog and
b) with no specialist breed knowledge how can we be sure there selection of home is suitable.
As a supporter of our back to breeder scheme we are asking you to help us spread the word about your breed rescue. Many breeders still assume they will never need us, but sadly people's circumstances do change and many many dogs are sold/rehomed in the first 5 years due to family breakdowns, divorces, new baby's, change of work hours.
Some people just never keep in touch with their breeder and we do feel that should the worst happen that people are aware there is a breed rescue; surley it's better for the bulldog to be sent either to us or rehomed via us as opposed to being sent to an RSPCA center or to a small unqualified on line rescue.
We suggest that you include the contact details of the Breed Rescue in your sales contracts, mention that there is an arrangement with us to have your dogs returned to you and that in the event they are unable to contact you for whatever reason that we can act on your behalf. People still claim they didn't know there was a Bulldog Rescue and we are having to watch many many bulldogs end up in rehoming systems that really are not qualified to take them.
Thank you again for your support
Hillplace What Ho a male puppy by Edition of Luxe kepi Blanc out of Hillplace Lil Miss dob 28/2/12 .
We hope Whattie will be our new stud and show dog when he is old enough
Ralph is judging at Crystal Palace Canine Association on 22/4/12
As from 21/4/12 Hillplace is able to offer a microchip service at £15.00 per dog. All of our dogs are micro chipped, we hear so many horror stories of bulldogs being stolen or lost at least, if they are chipped they stand a chance of being returned to you.
Ralph is the microchip installer and is happy to do any breed of dog.
Edition Of Luxe Kepi Blanc is returning home and is no longer available at stud here. We have loved him dearly and are very grateful to Alfred for allowing him to stay as long as he did. We are going to miss him so much. Bulldog Holidays is going to close for a few weeks in November so we can get away on holiday, our first for over 7 years. We got so cross with people saying bulldogs can`t breathe , can`t run, can`t self whelp that we thought of a web site, to show that there are a huge amount of bulldogs that live life to the full.
A big thank you to everyone that sent in pictures and videos they were amazing and Ewa yet again made an excellent web site to show them on. Huge thank you to Ewa.
We are pleased to announce illplace Gretal self whelped her litter on 26/2/12. We have 2 little girls both will be HUU clear, we did battle with these 2 young ladies but all doing well now a red & white and a pied and as cute as cute.
We also had another litter born on 28/2/12 Hillplace Lil Miss Sunshine we have 4 big strapping boys 2 of these boys will be available to SHOW homes and we are sure someone is going to have some fun with them . They are red and fawn and white and big boned strong attractive boys.
Bulldog Holidays is fully booked from 30/3/12 until 14/4/12 and July and August are getting very busy too.
Hillplace Bulldogs supports and has given to Exhibitors choice and voice and wants to give a huge thank you to those that set it up and those that support it.
This was set up after the dreadful situation at Crufts where 4 very healthy dogs failed the vet check for the group judging those 4 dogs were rechecked by independent vets and passed.
Edition of Luxe Kepi Blanc who is staying at Hillplace he is proving to be an excellent sire . Be very sad day when he returns to Spain.
