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
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.
