Fall is in the air!

 

Hello Wheaten Members,                                                              

Fall is in the air!

Our favorite meals encompass generations of recipes and ideas, bringing together our great-grandmother’s stuffing, our aunt’s pumpkin pie and our sister’s quinoa salad. What’s your favorite? Will you share the recipe?

 

You’ve probably heard by now that we are producing a cookbook and we want to include our Wheaten community — that’s you.

We’re sure you have some excellent recipes in your kitchen and we’re hoping that you’ll share them with us. Along with the recipe, send in a brief story about it (you always have it for your son’s birthday or your grandmother always made it just for you) and don’t forget to send in a photo of your Wheaten!  Send the information to Lauren Smith at Littlesmitty1218@yahoo.com

 

As always, thanks for reading. Remember to let us know what you like or what is missing from the meetings, the website or our Facebook page.

Have fun, do good!

Karla

Pet Disaster Relief for families & pets affected by Hurricane Harvey

HELP TEXAS FAMILIES & PETS


AKC Reunite is pleased to announce a Challenge Grant from Barbara and Bob Amen (Delegate, Greater St. Louis Training Club), which will match donations to AKC Reunite’s Pet Disaster Relief Fund up to $10,000 to support efforts for the families and pets in Texas and Louisiana affected by Hurricane Harvey.

“We have many friends in the area and our first two Australian Shepherds came from Texas breeders, so we feel a special connection to the region,” said Bob Amen. “We cannot believe the destruction and havoc that Hurricane Harvey has already caused and more is on the way.”

“We are extremely grateful to Mr. and Mrs. Amen for their generosity during such a trying time,” said Tom Sharp, AKC Reunite President and CEO. “The American Kennel Club and AKC Reunite are committed to helping those affected by this natural disaster, and this Challenge Grant will aid our efforts substantially.”

Two AKC Pet Disaster Relief trailers have been deployed in Dallas and Ft Worth, Texas to help evacuees from the storm, and AKC Reunite will continue to help shelters caring for pets displaced by the storm. Through the generous support of Barbara and Bob Amen, any donations received between Tuesday evening, August 29, and Wednesday, September 20, 2017, will be matched dollar for dollar up to $10,000 total. To donate securely online, go to www.akcreunite.org/donate.

An appreciation of Darby, who took Times readers along on dog-friendly adventures around California

If all dogs go to heaven, resident angels are greeting a well-traveled pooch this week.

Darby the Wheaten terrier, an L.A. Times Travel section mascot who tested dog-friendly hotels and activities for six years, died Sunday. He was 13.

A San Diego native, Darby was a rescue dog who came to live with travel writer Rosemary McClure in the South Bay when he was 6 years old.

The handsome dog then ambled his way through some of the state’s most interesting hotels. His photogenic mug and happy personality put him on the Travel section cover regularly and on the front page of the newspaper twice.

Pet Expo 2015 photos: click here

photo5On April 10th, 11th and 12th, our Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier Club of Southern California participated in the American Family Pet Expo. It was a fun time introducing our wonderful Breed to the public. Our SCWTCSC Booth won 1st Place of all the breed booths that were present! Judging was based on presentation, information provided, and knowledge of the Breed by the exhibitors! Our booth showcased our breed history, traits, and our support of Wheaten Rescue.

A special thank you goes out to Laura Virant, the chair of the event for her hard work and scheduling. Laura wants to thank Debbie Bowen and Conrad Virant for helping set-up the booth and Conrad Virant, and Jim and Karla Cohen for their help breaking down the booth. Laura also appreciates and thanks the club members who shared their time and Wheatens to make this year’s event a huge success. Click here for photos.
