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!

IN MEMORIAM – “Darby,” Wheaten Travel Reporter

Celebrated Wheaten Travel Reporter and rescue success story

Darby the Travel Dog - photo by Rosemary McClure/For the Los Angeles Times

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.
