Soft-coated Wheaten Terriers - week 8Updated : 17/02/2017

IT IS WITH regret that I have to open my notes with the news that Eric Morrey (Tobamorrey Wheatens) died on Feb 15 at the age of 70. I recall Eric and his wife Linda showing their first Wheaten, Woodlands Winter Surprise in 1986 and, as I was also showing a young dog at the same time, Plumhollow Calico Casey of Acetrips, we ...

Soft-coated Wheaten Terriers - week 5Updated : 27/01/2017

WELL, THIS seems to have been “attack a Wheaten week”. I have received news of three Wheatens (one still a puppy) being attacked by other dogs, each without provocation, within days of each other. It is so very shocking, as an owner, to experience this. In a park that I take Buddy to someone walks a dog who has t...
