HELLO EVELYN AND ED,

HOWDY FROM KNOXVILLE TENNESSEE.  WE PURCHASED
TONI, REMEMBER HER OLDER BROTHER, WAS IN THE
FIREHOUSE DOG MOVIE, WHICH WE BOUGHT A COPY OF,
SHE LIKES WATCHING IT ABOUT ONCE A WEEK. SHE JUST
HOWLS AND BARKS AND RUNS AND PLAYS AT THE TV,
WHEN WE PLAY IT FOR HER.  HER NEW NAME IS KATEY.  
YOU SHIPPED OUR LOVING LITTLE BUNDLE OF JOY TO US,
I BELIEVE IN SEPTEMBER. IT HAS BEEN A WONDERFUL
EXPERIENCE.
SHE HAS BECOME AS CLOSE TO US AS A CHILD. SHE IS
THE MOST LOVING ADORABLE PET WE HAVE EVER
OWNED. SHE WAS VERY EASY TO HOUSE BREAK AND HAS
HER OWN DOGGIE PORCH AND FENCED YARD TO COME
AND GO AS SHE PLEASES. BUT, MOST OF THE TIME SHE
WANTS TO BE IN THE HOUSE WITH US. HER TWO FAVORITE
PAST TIMES ARE OBLITERATING HER NEW STUFFED TOYS.
WE GO ONCE A WEEK TO PET SMART AND ALLOW HER TO
PICK OUT A NEW ONE ON HER OWN, WHAT A BLAST.  AND
HAVING US PICK HER UP ABOUT A POUND OF  DELI SLICED
ANGUS ROAST BEEF, FOR HER SPECIAL TREATS, WHEN
SHE HAS BEEN EXTRA SPECIAL GOOD.  SHE WILL DO
ANYTHING FOR THE SLICED ROAST BEEF, WASH THE CAR,
CUT THE GRASS, VACUUM THE CARPET.!!!
SHE HAS ALSO GOTTEN ALONG WITH KOKO OUR 9.5 YR
OLD YORKIE VERY WELL,  SHE HARASSES HIM  A LITTLE
SOMETIMES, BUT, WOOH  BE THE DOG OR PERSON WHO
IS NOT NICE TO HIM.  SHE IS ALMOST LIKE HIS MOTHER OR
SISTER.
SHE LOVES JUST ABOUT EVERY PERSON OR DOG SHE
MEETS. I DON’T BELIEVE SHE HAS EVER MET A
STRANGER, SHE IS VERY OUTGOING AND SOCIABLE. THE
GROOMER AND VET JUST ADORE HER.

THANK YOU , Darrell and Susan

We bought our very first puppy from
Rockledge 7-07, an Irish Terrier. I was
scared about the whole "puppy buying
experience" but I had done a lot of research
into the breed and the breeder. I have to
admit, I was hesitant at first about buying a
puppy sight-unseen all the way from
Missouri, but after checking references and
such... buying from Rockledge was the best
decision!!! They were wonderful to deal
with!! We had our puppy flown to us and this
also went GREAT. I think the flight was less
traumatic than a long car drive. I would be
very happy to give any tips to those looking
at buying their first Irish Terrier and would
be happy to answer any questions about our
dealings with Rockledge. Please email me
your questions. We would definitely buy
from them again. Karrie
Hello Evelyn,
Ryan Contenta is my boyfriend and we got
Clancy in November of 2006.  I took this
photo last fall and we wanted to share it
with you. Clancy was renamed Rommel
upon his arrival and has been the best
dog you could ever ask for. He has a
wonderful temperament, he is playful and
loves children and other dogs. He loves
his exercise and we love to hike with him
all over the Berkshires. There are
endless mountains, trails, streams and
lakes and Rommel loves every inch of
them. His energy is amazing yet at the end
of the day he can switch gears and cuddle
up on the couch and watch a movie with
us. He is the best thing that ever
happened to Ryan and we can't thank you
enough for raising such a wonderful
puppy and allowing him into our lives. He
brightens our every day and brings us so
much happiness and joy. Sincerely, Ryan
and Leigh Anne

Hello from Olive Branch,

We just wanted to send you some photos and a quick
update on Lucy (formally Foxette). She has been such a
wonderful dog for us.  Obedient, but with a good amount
of spunk, she’s a quick learner and a fast friend to
everyone she meets.  We take her to the dog park as
often as possible, and she’s always the one to initiate
play, with both dogs and people.  She just makes it a
point to introduce herself to everyone.
Lucy comes with us every day to work (my husband has
his own law firm), and she just lightens up the
atmosphere, keeping stress down to a minimum for
anyone who needs a break from the day.  All of our
clients who come in love to play with her, and she does
especially well with kids- she thinks they’re just the right
size.  We’re thrilled about how well she does with
children- one week after we got Lucy, we found out I was
pregnant!  I’m due next month and I know she’s going to
be a terrific big sister.  She has spent many nights with
me on the sofa curled up to my belly so she can feel the
baby kick- she just seems to know that that’s her baby
brother in there.  Lucy is our sweetheart and our best
friend.  She keeps us entertained and constantly amazes
us with her intelligence and vivacity.  Thank you so much
for breeding her- we couldn’t possibly imagine life
without her now.
David and Mary Delgado

P.S. Shredding the mail for us is one of her favorite
pastimes
Howdy!
Attached is a picture of Lucy; #4500
from the Halloween litter.  She
absolutely loves the snow and has
been doing great!  We also have
another male terrier 5 years old & 40
lbs, Lucy at about 10 pounds now
gives him a run for his money!  
We've been shocked at how well the
two dogs have become buddies!  
Thank you!!

Dear Evelyn,

for your professionalism and for
providing me with a healthy and
energetic puppy. I named him
Fergus.

Evelyn,

Just thought we'd drop you a line and tell
you Sir Racha McKenzi is doing just fine.
He's been working on learning all the tricks.
Stay, sit, shake hands, play dead, turn a
circle, and lay down.

I've attached a picture to show how well
he's doing. Hope you had a wonderful
Christmas.

Thanks, W. Scott Wene

We just celebrated our one year
anniversary with Mickey. He's such a
smart and playful dog. The four of us
are quite fond of him.
Thank you for our fur baby!

Hello
Just an update on the puppy we
bought from you Jan 2017. His name
is Colonel. He is the nicest and
smart dog Debbie and I have had.
He completely obedience trained.
He has a large farm that he happily
patrols. He is extremely alert, he
lets us know about everything that
happens on the farm. He gets along
great with the kids, grand kids, and
other dogs. We could not have
picked a better breed dog he also
does trips camping when we can get
away. He is so well trained that most
of the time in public, he can be off
lead. We would be happy if you used
us a reference. We have been
exploring getting a friend from you,
maybe a girl.

Evelyn,
Thank you again for this wonderful little
girl. She is so beautiful, sweet, funny and
always keeps us laughing.  She loves to
meet other dogs on our walks and I'm
asked all the time "what kind of dog is
she"?  Apparently, Irish Terriers are not
common in my area.  She  has capture
everyone's heart.  Thank you again!

Hi,
I have chip #4414 born sept 15th.  
Her name is Mayhem and I just
wanted you guys to know she is
doing awesome! We survived our
first stripping and she's about to
start nosework classes to keep
her busy until she's old enough for
agility. She has an extraordinary
hunting instinct and loves to
please. Easily the smartest dog
I've ever trained! Everyone
compliments on how good her
manners are in public and how
good she looks. Thank you for a
great dog.

Hi Evelyn,
I have been meaning to send you a long
overdue thank you note!  We purchased our
boy Jameson from you last year.  I can’t
thank you enough for breeding such a great
animal!  He is very healthy – no issues to
report at all.  Jameson is a super smart and
loving dog.  I will say everything you read
about the breed you get – he is full of
energy, fearless and a lover.  He has quite a
personality and fits in great in our home.  
We were nervous to have him flown to us
but he was unfazed.  I have pictures
attached of our growing boy.  I get stopped
every day by people that want to meet
Jameson.  He is so friendly and well
behaved more people should know how
great this breed truly is!
Thank you again for keeping high standards
and providing great puppies for our families!
Anna M.
Note; Jameson is sired by Chancer and out
of Nutmeg by Elf.
