About the site and its creation

Me and Tonic.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.


ANLUAN PRINCE OF THIEVES - Irish terrier from Australia

Tonic at 4 months.«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?

Tonic - best puppy of 2008 in Latvia!

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!

Anluan Prince Of Thieves.  Anluan Prince Of Thieves.

Once you get to know an Irish Terrier well enough to get acquainted with his personality, to recognize the depth of his love, to behold his proud almost swaggering carriage, his catlike grace of movement and blinding speed and coordination of muscle, and his magnificent courage and heart, and to see his unnerving intelligence displayed again and again, you will be convinced that the Irish Terrier is one of the most magnificent of God's creations in the dog family.



From "Long-Legged Irishman,
Biography of a Terrier,"
by Byron N. Martin




The Irish Terrier

A friendly face
A fiery heart
A spirit - wild and free
A temperament of solid gold
There's no other dog for me

A chestnut coat
So rich, so red
Two eyes as black as night
A stature - sturdy, strong and hard
He'll impress with all his might

A friend for life
That's what he'll be
So loyal and oh so proud
This dog could never fail you
He's a treasure in a crowd.
