Welshbern Trafys Of Scobern ShCM
11th October 2009 ~ 14th July 2017  

Marian Scott emailed;

"It is with a very heavy heart that we said goodnight to Trafys.  He deteriorated very rapidly and finally gave
in to his bladder cancer. He will be greatly missed, especially for his comical antics at the shows and in the
house; it's never been so quiet.

"Love you to the moon and back my big beautiful boy. Run pain-free over the bridge.  RIP."

This year is the Society's 50th Anniversary and there were various specials on offer including a free
souvenir pen for all exhibitors plus some lovely souvenir rosettes and also some additional prize
money for the lucky winners of some of the notable awards.  Very few of the general or group 
championship shows provide incentives for the exhibitors so they are always very well received.

Hartley-Mair and Gary Dybdall's homebred Ch Meadowpark High Class. Just barely 2 1/2 years old
