Not so many things in my life went easily and fast - usually it takes years to achieve anything, pushing it to the linmit to reach the final goal. Same with the creation of this site about favorite breed. Materials for each page carefully stored in a computer and waited in the wings, the design ideas thought changed repeatedly, until, finally, it became any more or less important part of the whole - an information resource that can tell about the breed to beginner or professional. My attitude to the Irish terriers is invested in every bar, in every line, each page. Still, to my great dismay, no matter how I try, none of the web resource does not convey the atmosphere of the Irish terrier living in the house, and how I love red ones actually.
Yours faithfully, Ksenija Sizova.
«I know for sure that everything is possible…» the lines from Russian pop-song span in my head. So long-awaited little red puppy is finally clasped to a heart; ahead are new cares, happiness and hopes... A dream came true – Irish Terrier Tonic came from Australia and made his first amused steps on our part of the world. Four-month old puppy has travelled a 4-days long way – from Perth to Sydney, then to Bangkok, Stockholm and finally reached Riga. He could have arrived sooner, if not a sad mistake in his documents. This was because, according to EU rules, a rabies shot should be done only after a dog has a microchip. Whether accidentally or not, Tonic’s papers were mixed up and filled incorrectly. Finally we got an answer from our Animal Health Office – Tonic was allowed to leave Sweden and already registered for a flight: there is no such phenomenon as rabies in Australia, so there is no risk for Latvia too. Can you imagine what was my tremble and how high was my emotional tension during this forced wait?
Thinking back of the award ceremony, I just want to exclaim: «Hurray! We did it! ». According to the results of the exhibitions in Latvian Cynological Federation (FCI) system for 2008 my Irish Terrier Tonic is best puppy among all breeds of dogs. This year in Latvia, we took part in five shows and on each of them Tonic received an excellent description, won the Best Puppy in Breed and was selected to top-ten finalists. On four Best's he confidently was one of the five leaders, and we constantly took places from first to fourth. Many thanks to all who supported us! Nothing would come out without you!
