MADRABEAG FARM

(pronounced Modra Beug)

 simply means little or small dog. 

In gaelic madra is dog and beag is small.

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 have lived in Maine for almost 25 years, mostly in York but 3 years ago I moved to Belfast, ME, quite fitting for an Irish girl. I married my husband Jon Clapp and we have blended our lives, families and Jon has joined me in a partner with Madra Beag Farm.

Together we are working daily with our dogs and pups at our beautiful coastal property Riverbend Estate on the edge of Belfast town we have 8 lovely acres with a property that slopes down to the waterfront, Jon has spend over 20 years at this property and it is truly idyllic, for both family, friends and of course our dogs.

We are grateful to God and know we are very blessed to be able to enjoy this home and our dogs together. Jon has an English Setter and a couple of sweet Cavaliers, so with them and all of the MBF jacks we have a lively and wonderful life.
