My first Jack Russell, Bubbles 1979 Co. Dublin, Ireland.

My smile says it all and my jacks have been making me smile ever since. She was a grand little dog and she was the perfect pet for me at 8, lots of fun, a bit mischievous, always up for an adventure, affectionate and loyal.

This was the beginning of a lifelong passion for Jacks, known in American as the Irish Jack, For those who know the difference there is just nothing like a good Irish Jack.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

My daughters first Irish Jack Russell, Murphy 2005 York,Maine. We imported Murphy directly from Ireland, from friends in the Pony Club who had this line for many years.

My children have been raised with the jacks and have enjoyed them thoroughly, I have never had one of my jacks ever be mean or irritable. She was a grand little dog and she was the perfect pet for me at 8, lots of fun, a bit mischievous, always up for an adventure, affectionate and loyal.

They say a picture is worth a thousand words, well if that is so, this picture describes my relationship with my Jacks at the beginning and still today, they are and always will be intertwined with my life, I love them and raising them is what I was meant to do, I am sure of it. It was a childhood dream and I feel very fortunate to be able to live out that dream. My daughter took this photo, I was exhausted after another busy early morning taking care of the dogs and the farm animals, raising dogs is a full time commitment and lots of work but there is nothing I would rather do, all the hard work is so worth it. These little dogs have charmed me for over 40 years and I hope they do for 40 more.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bubbles and I,  1981 Co. Dublin, Ireland.

My smile says it all again, I loved that little dog and she loved me.

Her ears popped up at 6 months and stayed that way, didn't change anything about how I felt about her and it certainly didn't change her one bit.

It is lovely here in Maine, I had lived in Maine for almost 25 years, mostly in York. My husband Jon and I reside in Belfast, Maine.We bought an organic orchard and farm in  New Portland and I moved there temporarily with my dogs, it is peaceful and beautiful there. However, a few changes have made us decide to sell up in New Portland and be based solely in Belfast.

Together we are working daily with our dogs and pups, it takes great teamwork and dedication to make things go smoothly. Jon and I got married in 2018, our union brought many changes and blessings. We are a blended family with both our 7 children and our dogs! Jon has enjoyed Spaniels and Setters for over 25 years, English Springers, Cavalier King Charles Spaniels, Gordon Setters and English Setters.

We are grateful to God and know we are very blessed to be able to enjoy this home and our dogs together

We are so very grateful to have this lovely home, built in 1800, on 8 acres with

hundreds of feet of water front, truly a lovely spot. 

It is doggie heaven and my Jacks, get to enjoy the place with my husbands Cavalier Spaniels and his English Setters.

We welcome visitors with advance notice, we have a wonderful 2 bedroom cottage on the property which is available for rent throughout the year also, if you are traveling from afar.

Midcoast Maine is a beautiful and very scenic place to visit, we will do our best to make you feel welcome.
