How fortunate I was...
 
While wathcing 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.
