Obituary - Dr Hugh Stevenson (Lionrampant)

        It is with great sadness that we have to report the passing of Dr Hugh Stevenson.

      Dr Hugh . . . a gentleman and a great character, he was very familiar with the dog show world who in his earlier days showed Pyrenean Mountain Dogs. Later in life, toward his retirement, he showed great interest in Japanese Spitz and purchased Ossian from Stephanie Bliss. This was followed by Vorlich and after sadly losing his beloved Ossian a new puppy which he was training ready for the showring.

        Hugh showed at the Scottish Kennel Club on several occasions and was also a regular visitor to our own shows at the Harewood Village Hall. Hugh was a huge supporter of the Northern Japanese Spitz Club in many ways, giving prizes for the shows and sponsoring prize money. He was also a great friend to Mary with whom he kept in regular telephone contact.

Hugh, it is so much quieter now you're gone . . .

        May you rest in peace.
