In honor of the Irish let me introduce Willis. . .
The Soft-Coated Wheaten Terrier was originally bred in
native Ireland to be an all-purpose farm dog.
Despite its long history as a farm dog, the Wheaten wasn’t recognized as a breed in Ireland by the Irish Kennel Club until 1937. The first Wheatens were exported to the United States in the 1946, but serious interest in the breed took years to develop. Finally, in 1973, they were recognized by the American Kennel Club.
They didn’t know what to do with them cause they are so dang cute if you ask me! And they are hard to fine, almost 3 years ago we drove 7 hours to Georgia to the closest breeder to pick up this cheeky monkey (as my english friends call him).
So there’s my dog Willis! He is crazy, fun-loving, IRISH and the giver of perpetual kisses!
And when you ask “Whattchooo Talkin about Willis?”
He’ll respond with a friendly bark.
Happy St. Patrick’s Day. . . get your green on!
