It was so kind and thoughtful of you to send us the lovely calendar and the wonderfully illustrated book. We have already shared them with Patricia at the kennel that takes care of all of Annye’s grooming needs. Patricia’s brother, Scot Sommers, who owns the kennel, lead us to Annye’s breeder, Dan Sackos. Scot had shown Annye’s grandmother for Dan and won the big prize for IT’s at the Westminster dog show in 2009.
Annye’s mum was also a champion, but Princess Annye is relegated to living life as a commoner. We were still so upset about the loss of our beloved Keely that we flew all the way from Houston, TX to Vancouver, WA to fetch Annye and brought her back in first class with us rather than chancing having her shipped. The beginning of a spoiled childhood! However, she was the only pup in the litter and had learned very little about “sharing” so it was very easy for her to become terribly spoiled. She has become our loving Irish girl and we refuse to share her with the “show” world.
Bev and I look forward to our continued correspondence and love the monthly news letter. It is so engaging that we feel transported to jolly England to accompany you on your adventures. The trials and tribulations of Irish Terriers makes such wonderful stuff. Have a wonderful day and thank you.
