Captain Jack Wins Stud Dog Award

Nov 11, 2020

The genuinely great dog is defined not only by his performance in the show ring, but also by the quality he produces in the whelping box.  Add to that a little bit of whimsy and you have the dog of a lifetime. We are proud to announce that Multi BIS and Montgomery County Kennel Club BIS GChS Abbeyrose Captain Jack was awarded the Seaplume Award for Stud Dog with most champion get during the 2019-2020 Welsh Terrier Club of American Annual Awards Presentation. Thank you to Caryn Stevens and Matt O’Farrell, who sponsor the award, for the lovely engraved dish they offered to commemorate the occasion. Jack has sired a total of 6 AKC litters to date.  In his first 3 litters he sired 8 AKC champions, including one GChB (RBIS and multi group winner). Puppies from his last 3 litters have not yet been shown in conformation. We are over the moon to have bred and owned this once in a lifetime, genuinely great dog. GCh Brightluck Cheshire Gold Doubloon X Ch Abbeyrose A Penny for Your Thoughts. Born 6/8/2016.

Happy Birthday Susie

Aug 19, 2019

Susie (Ch Abbeyrose Black-Eyed Susan) turns 10 years old August 20th. She is everything a welsh terrier should be – sweet and determined and naughty and lovable. Susie is dam to Gigi (GCH Abbeyrose Black Diamond) and Penny (Ch Abbeyrose A Penny for Your Thoughts) and Grand dam to Captain Jack (GCh Abbeyrose Captain Jack) and many others.  Susie and Frank (GCh Abbeyrose Jersey Boy) are an inseparable pair. Frank thinks he rules supreme, but Susie knows who really rules the roost – just look into those eyes!

Happy Father’s Day Captain Jack!

Jun 16, 2019

This young father (Jack turned 3-years-old June 8th) is all smiles this Father’s Day. His first AKC champion finished last week (Jacklyn, Ch Abbeyrose Sweet Chaos). Littermate Bart (Ch Abbeyrose Captain Black Bart, CGC) finished his championship in style this weekend by going either WD, BOW, and/or BOS nearly every day during the Grayslake Summer Cluster. Jacklyn and Bart are just 11-months-old. Captain Jack also is sire to 7-month-old Scotch (Brynmawr Scallywag) who was Best in Sweeps at Great Lakes All Terrier Association Saturday and WD 0n Sunday at the same cluster.  Wow – Happy Father’s Day Jack! Can’t wait to see what the future holds for all the wonderful welsh you’ve sired.

Happy Birthday Frank!

This is my six year old boy, Jordy. I adore him. With my boys grown and living on their own he is a wonderful companion except when a squirrel or cat crosses his path. He insists he’s just ‘doing his job’ and living up to the expectations of his breed.


Jan 2, 2019

Jordy here! Nothing I love more than basking in the early morning sun with my dad. You can’t see him but trust me, he’s on the other end of the leash.

Ch Abbeyrose Angel at Hapitals ‘Ava Rose’ 2003-2018

Nov 5, 2018

Sweet, lovable, naughty, tenacious, beautiful are just a few words to describe Ava Rose. When Richard Powell showed us Ava’s dam Angel, we were totally smitten. We were thrilled when some years later he and Elizabeth Leaman offered us the little ball of fur they called Avocado.  Avocado was renamed Ava Rose and grew into a welsh who epitomized the standard. After finishing her championship, Ava went to live with our friends Linda and Rudy. Ava wormed her way into the hearts of Paul, Margit and Tim too and became the beloved pet of two households.  She could not have lived her life with more loving humans, for which we will be forever grateful. Those of use who are breeders can identify events that were important in moving our breeding programs forward. For us, one such event occurred the day we brought Ava Rose home. Ava is dam of our wonderful companion and stud dog GCh Abbeyrose Jersey Boy (Frankie) and great grand dam of the fabulous Captain Jack. Thanks for everything Rosebud – Rest in Peace.
