Living in a Stafford house
is never dull. Stafford’s are dogs that need human attention and
constant love. We can never imagine our self being with our staffies. If we are not showing, the normal sports on a Saturday
take up our time. Louis is a very big Blue Bull supporter and you
would find him at Loftus if not around the show ring.
Where does the name Larumo
The iLarumo is
a dagger type of sword that was used by the Nguni and Venda
tribesmen to defend them in battle as well as to fend of the wild
animals in mother nature.
I (Adele) acquired my first
Stafford in the early 90’s, CH Kwan of Larumo, with my then
husband Walter Enslin. He was a red dog and typical Stafford. With
the help of Charles and Sukie Woods we showed him to champion
status. My first bitch was a dog that came off the Chassuki stud
called Chassuki Tuli of Larumo. At that time we were young
student and with not much cash in hand. I wanted her badly and took
the water and lights money to buy her. Not obviously telling Walter
the water and lights got cut of. Tuli then became known as the water
and lights dog. She was a big bully red and white bitch and the
centre of my live.
When I separated from Walter
I took Tuli with me. Not wanting to carry on with breeding I then
transferred her into Mr Koos Richards, from Richmax Stafford’s name.
Koos gave me a bitch CH Richmax Bellezza for Tuli as a
I continued showing and
helping Koos around the ring. There I met a couple Mark and Andrea
Pawley. They purchased a pare of Stafford’s from Koos, Ch Richmax
Blue Blood (Bullet) & Richmax Symphony’o Fire (Molly).
I showed Bullet to champion status. This is a big blue-black male
with a heart like a lion. I always preferred red dogs but this male
changed me. He has the biggest, softest eyes and nature that any
dog lover would die for.
I remarried in 2002 to Louis
Coetsee, at first I carried on with the dogs and the showing on my
own. In 2003 Mark and Andrea Pawley started planning to immigrate
to Canada and they gave me Bullet and Molly to look after and to
With these new companions in our lives, Louis
started to become interested in the dog world. We are now breeding
and showing together and loving every minute of it.
