So the Norwich Terriers win again. Mae is in her new home in Nebraska and is loving it. She struts around in her new threads, keeping warm and looking good. Her new brother, Harry, and her get along great and play a lot. We also heard that she found out what snow was, nosed and played in it showing Harry how it should be done. He just shook his head and looked on in awe. Of course he is a bit older and must be a little more dignified though we think he secretly likes it to. So here a couple of pictures of them looking good!

Tami has her new mom, Sue and is headed to Nebraska to be with Sue and a new older brother, Harry. Harry is a bit more dignified, but that’s just because he’s a little older, at 9. Tami will straighten that out. Well, with two Norwichs in the house, it will be a whole house full of life and cuteness. Welcome to your new forever home Tami!

Well, we knew it would happen. Winston has totally drawn his new family into the Norwich Terrier world. He says look what a great place I have. First there’s this wonderful deck that is mine. Yes, its all mine. But wait, when its too cold outside I get my own sweater and in a very manful manner check here and there about the parameter for those that may skulk about. I see you! I have a wonderful new family and none shall pass here without my knowledge.

Well, the time has come. Toby, now he who is called Winston, is off to a new forever home. Bruce and Winston hit it off immediately, best of buds. There may be some of who’s the boss role settling even though Bruce says he runs “a tight ship” but we saw the twinkle there in Mr. Winston. Bruce has now been assimilated into the Norwich Terrier family and Winston approved to the new life style that would soon follow. So a new pic of Winston in is new home saying yup, I see that and it’s mine, for your viewing pleasure…

So it was pointed out that its been some time since we had pictures of the latest Norwich babies. So we took them out of their little play area gave it a go. Well… that was impossible. They decided it was terrier time, not picture time. Attack this, attack that. Run over to get a couple of pets then off again. How can this be you might ask. So some pics of them with the puppy agility equipment. Over the dog walk they go. Then one says wait, look what I can do. I can go under it to.

So we put them back in their play pen and tried there for some beauty shots. Well…

Is that food out there?

I thought you said there were treats…
After that is was… Fine we will just go take a nap.
Well, it has happened. Our little Norwich Terrier, Poptart, left for his new forever home today. After many phone calls and discussions, Ken flew in and met Poptart. Both took to each other right off the bat and a new family was started. We are looking forward to hearing the many terrier tales and adventures to come with Ken, Lynn and Poptart. By the way, he did show Ken what a little terrier man he was when a big dog dared to come to close. Ha, nothing on him! So here he is, Poptart with his new dad.

It’s Norwich Terrier NEWS: Samson, now Tucker, has left for his new forever home! Ron, Laura and MacKenzie decided they just couldn’t leave without him after everyone got to hold him. And of course, he just snuggled right in, winning their hearts. Really, just look at that face of his.
We hear he had a great ride home, slept well over night and was very good getting up this morning. What a goooood boy. We will miss him but know he has gone to a wonderful home full of love. We look forward to hearing more stories about Tucker and his new family. After all, that’s what it is all about.

The time has come. Patsy has gone to her new forever home and we are very proud of her. Gary and Patti came from Missouri and fell in love. After we all met, we knew it was a match. Patsy will be their first Norwich Terrier and Maria gave them tons of info to take with them with an open invitation to call or visit any time they wanted. So, while it makes us sad to see her go, we are really glad she is going to a great home. Her new name is now Alegria Miss Ruby Slippers, you know, from the Wizard of Oz.
We were asked how we can let them go. Our answer… because it will bring that magical, joyous feeling to others that Alegria Norwich Terriers are all about.

So Penny’s new puppies, Norwich Terriers of course, just past 11 weeks. They are doing wonderful, having a good time. The kids have been to the our Vet a couple of times and have gotten their shots. The kids did great with the visit and of course everyone there just loved them. They have also been with us to a couple of events in the motorhome. Of course they stayed in to keep from catching anything. Folks have come to visit and socialize them, after these folks undergo intense sterilization procedures of course. Ok, well maybe not so much but they did wash up. The kids did very well with the visits, loving it the whole time.
So without further ado, here is the crew. Samson, Delilah, Poptart and Patsy;

Well, we finally have new puppies in the house. Whoop! Born September 23rd, we waited to post until we passed the critical two week mark last Friday and are happy to say all are well. Their eyes are open now and we should be getting open ears this next week or so. There are two girls and two boys and what a cute bunch they are. It’s pretty funny hearing those tiny little growls coming from their pen. Penny has been a wonderful mom, keeping them clean and looking after them. And as the Dr. said, what a milk machine she is.
The first few days are pretty stressful and full as we check every couple of hours to make sure everyone is eating, staying warm and gaining weight. They actually all did well though sometimes we would see one off by itself. So put it back with the pack, watch them wrestle for over the next meal position and then comes the vigorous Penny cleaning they would get. We go in and handle them from time to time turning them this way and that, rubbing little bear feet and so on. Later, socialization will start, different noises, textures and objects. Well, enough talk. Here are a few pics for you.
