GCH CH Glengariff’s Field of Red Clover

Clover won BOB at one of the four shows during the Montgomery County, Pensylvania weekend, which boasts the largest annual gathering of Norwich terriers in the world.  Clover is owned by Judy Laffey. Judy purchased Meadow, Clover's mom, from us about 4 years ago. She bred Meadow to one of our dogs, Taki. So in essence Clover is a Verdant pedigreed bitch. We are very happy for Meadow and Clovers' sucesses.

We moved to the countryside

We moved in the summer of 2015 from midtown Sacramento to the countryside in Clarksburg.  Clarksburg is located in the San Joaquin- Sacramento Delta.  The dogs now have over 3 acres to play, run, bark, and chance squirrels.  They love it. We have many trees on the property and everything is so green - our kennel name Verdant is now apropos!

In 2013, Apollo (Paulo) ranked number #1 AKC Norwich Terrier in breed points of 563 (Canine Chronicle stats). He received multiple group placements and the highlight of 2013, Reserve Best in Show at Chief Solano Kennel Club. 

Diego, age 4 months.  A very self-assured boy.
