While watching Westminster in 1992, I saw my first Skye Terrier tear up the ring. I have known of the breed from the
story of Greyfriar's Bobby and after seeing the elegance and beauty that just graced the television screen I new that some
day I would share my life with a Skye.
After purchasing my home, I felt the time was right. I had been studying the
breed from information on the internet and understood that this breed is not correct for everyone, but had an idea that they
were right for me.
I am lucky to live in a state that has a responsible breeder of Skyes and I got in touch with her.
After several e-mails back and forth, I would meet the breed for the first time. During our meeting, I met several wonderful
adults. I was simply taken with one of the adult males. The personality of this dog was astounding--his attitude, his looks...he
had it all.
The breeder, Laura Weber of Laird O'Glen Skyes
, went out to her van and brought in a most adorable baby boy. He was just six months old. And while he sat in my lap the
look from his eyes said it all...I needed him!
More e-mails were sent back and forth. Discussions were had and decisions
were made, changed and made again. This lovely boy would be coming into my home.
I wanted a Skye merely as a pet.
Fortunately, I was taught how to show him competitively and have not looked back. Now my life has changed. We share much more
than the same birth date. My Skye and I share the gift of being involved in the sport of dogs. We have numerous new friends,
new explorations and most importantly the love we share between us.
I am also a member in good standing with the Skye
Terrier Club of America. When looking for any purebred dog, please visit the AKC Parent Club page at: http://www.akc.org/breederinfo/breeder_search.cfm
