As the finale to the British Manchester Terrier Clubs ‘Virtual Summer of Fun’ we are holding a raffle to win a beautiful print, which can be viewed on the BMTC website, from a drawing by Jean Walker …..from a photo taken by Laura Niska.

This is one of a very limited print run of 50. This being No. 7/50.

Jean kindly donates £10 from the sales of each print to the Friends of Manchester Terriers who help MT’s and their owner in need. The ‘Friends’ also support rehome MT owners who’s dogs come with diagnosed health issues.

ALL profits from this raffle will be equally split between ‘Friends’ and MT health research….. current research being renal failure.

Each ticket costs £3. The print comes unframed but professionally mounted. The winner understands they will pay postage.

Please select ‘friends and family’ payment option. Tickets numbers will be allocated in order of purchase.

The raffle will be drawn live on 31st October at noon by a random number generator.

Please support our wonderful breed and preserve its future by buying a raffle ticket or two…… or three!!!

I’m please to announce that the overall winner of the BMTC VSOF is Carol Wicker, a worthy winner as she took part in all but one of the events and finished with a fabulous total of 116 points!! Hot on her heals were Louise Plant and Dubhglas Gray who both finished on 105 points!
Many thanks to all who have taken part in the events, which were created by the committee of the BMTC, throughout the last 4 months, we have tried to include as many disciplines as possible to give everyone a chance of doing something out of their comfort zones. 

We hope you have all enjoyed sharing photo’s, having a go or just viewing others attempts and have found some light relief from these very troubled times, lets hope 2021 will allow us to get back to the activities we all enjoy with our dogs.

Don’t forget to put our BMTC fun weekend, which is booked for 16th – 18th July 2021 in Oxfordshire, in your diaries! Defiantly something for us all to look forward too, a weekend filled with everything MT and a fabulous social event!!

Stollen from a post on the Fan page as just sums up the MT attitude……

A Doberman, a Poodle and a Manchester Terrier died and are standing in front of God at the entrance to the kingdom of heaven 

God asked all three, what they believe in?

The Doberman says:”I believe in discipline, training and loyalty to my owner.”

“Good,” says God, “take a seat on my right side.” 

“Poodle, what do you believe in?” Asked God.

The Poodle answers: ” I believe in love and care from my owner as well as peace in the world. ”

“Ah,” God said, ” You can take a seat to my left side.”

Then he looked at the Manchester Terrier: “And what do you believe in?”. The Manchester Terrier stood there, looked at him and answered: “I believe you’re sitting in my seat!”

Have a good week, don’t forget to send anything you’d like me to include in these notes.
