Our Irish Terriers in the Show Ring


The show bug bit us early and bit us hard. We started with Mocha when she was a puppy, initially relying on professional help and learning our way around the ring as we went along. We finished Mocha on November 11, 2006, just a few days before her second birthday. With Druid and Ayfa, we did all our own grooming and handling. Druid earned his championship on January 24, 2009, and Ayfa on August 1, 2009. Our next generation of champions started with Bullet, who earned his championship on April 12, 2012, eighteen days before his first birthday. His sister Daragan earned her championship on January 26, 2013.

This album displays some of our show history, starting with our most recent wins and going back to our first big win from Mocha at the Montgomery County Kennel Club National Terrier Specialty Show in October, 2006.
