The Stafford community today owes a incalculable debt of gratitude to the pioneer Stafford owners whose names appear in the following SBTC/USA Bulletins. Each of these intrepid souls chose Staffords when the Breed was unknown, unheralded, and sometimes unwelcome and when showing seemed only the remotest of possibilities. They opted for Staffords against all conventional wisdom and stayed with Staffords until old age and the vicissitudes of life took their toll. If these "old timers" had not made that one singularly countervailing decision and had not afterward remained unassailable Staffanatics, the United States would still have a Stafford population of about fourteen or fifteen:  no shows, no obedience, nothing -- and even so rich a land as this great country would have been much the poorer for it.
