N. California Wheaten Terrier Makes History

For the first time in the 45 year history of the Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier Club of America National Specialty, a Northern California Club dog has taken Best of Breed.

Judge Candy Way selected GCH CH Serendipity's Urban Legend as the top dog from an entry of 138, and the local club is very proud to congratulate Richard and Camille Taylor who own Manhattan "Hattie".
No small credit also goes to Amy Rutherford, Hattie's handler.

Hattie is only the eighth bitch to take the breed (one won twice) in the show's history; the other 37 BOBs were all dogs at the Montgomery
County Kennel Club shows.

The SCWTCNC Board and members are thrilled to extend our collective congratulations to Hattie and the Taylor's.


Some of the goals of the Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier Club of Northern CA include: to do all in its power to protect and advance the interest of purebred Soft Coated Wheaten Terriers and to encourage sportsmanlike competition at dog shows and obedience trials; to urge members and breeders to accept the standard of the breed as approved by The American Kennel Club as the only standard of excellence by which Soft Coated Wheaten Terriers shall be judged; to accept and abide by the Code of Ethics of the Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier Club of Northern California.
