The Past, The Present and the Future
Looking back to where we came
began many year's ago (1973) with the arrival of a Jack Russell cross.
Tasha, or Fang as she was later called, brought a love and appreciation
for this wonderful terrier. As a young person with a love for animals
it was always my dream to one day be able to show and possibly breed
dogs. There were a number of Jack Russells that were part of our
family at the time including my parent's "Rambo "and my
sister's beloved "Fritz". Geoff and I were not married
long when a puddin Russell "Webster" became part of the
family. Webster lived to old age and by then our first 'correct'
Russell "Raglan" had arrived. We have a true appreciation
for the versatility and tenacity of this little terrier, and are
always amused by their many antics. We have shared our lives with
some wonderful terriers over the years
some of whom are still
with us and some who have gone on to live with other families. Through
these little 'dogs' we have also been lucky to meet many wonderful
people from all over the world, and have many great friends because
and Kira the Old English Sheepdog - 1994
terriers, the Norwich, have been a wonderful addition to our family.
We were lucky to meet a special little Norwich terrier called "Bitty
Miss" over 22 years ago. She was my sister's companion and
best friend to the Jack Russell she owned at the time. Bitty certainly
left an impression with us, and when we decided it might be time
to add another breed it wasn't hard to decide which terrier we wanted.
is different then the Jack Russell with a more laid back attitude,
but they are still the terrier personality we love. Since
the Fall of 2003 we have welcomed a number of Norwich litters and
look forward to the future with this wonderful breed.

In 2005 we
have made the difficult decision to focus our time and energy only on our Norwich Terriers. Although we will continue
to stay available to all the wonderful JRT folks who are 'related'
in some way. In February of 2008 we lost our last Jack Russell
and decided it was an end of era for us... We will continue to strive towards producing the terriers
we have been so proud of over the years. And our goal of producing
the ultimate terrier - that 'works', shows and sleeps in our bed will
remain. The future is filled with many exciting possibilities
and Norwich Pups enjoying each other.
