Woody, Sara and Chad

Although involved in both dog shows and sled dog racing since 1963, I discovered Border Terriers in 1983 when Woody visited my grooming shop. Woody was a retired super show dog, living here in Oregon with his dad, Joe Wheeler. I soon fell in love with Woody and the breed. He came to live with me in Jan 1986, and I was privileged to enjoy his company for many years, until he died at a ripe old age. While I was only one of many that Charlotte Wheeler's grand dog converted to the breed, I am glad to have shared  part of his life and career.

Before Woody came to live with me, I acquired the co-ownership of Ch. Jocasta Just Sara CG ROM  from my mentor Debra Janes Blake of  Jocasta Borders and Sara had a litter by Woody. Sara was the start of Terraholm Border Terriers and she completed my conversion and committed me to the Border Terrier breed.
