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
This is a picture of Honora Erin (Nora) with our son
Liam.  We adopted Nora in December '04.  She was born
October 18, 2004 as the offspring of Rockledge Major
Blue and Rockledge Irish Imprint.
We love her very much and she's become such a vital
member of the family.  Regards, Dan and Peg

NOTE: THIS PUPPY IS 3/4 DIRECT IRISH IMPORT FROM
A LINE OF IRISH AND INTERNATIONAL CHAMPIONS.
I am a little late in writing this review but have been busy with
the love of my life, my Coton Trevor! He is sweet, cute, funny
and a wonderful companion! I was a bit scared about buying a
dog over the internet but the experience in working with Ed and
Evelyn Weber was pleasurable, informative and easy. Trevor
arrived safe, happy and very healthy. He has grown into a 10
mo. old friend and companion to me, my daugther and to Bella
our 3yr. old Shih-Tzu. You could not go wrong buying a dog
from Rockledge! Lori Peterson, Annapolis Maryland
HIGHLY RECOMMEND KENNEL- WE LOVE
OUR IRISH
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

One year ago today, our pup was born at
your place.  His name was Elroy (now known
as Shiloh.)  I can't tell you enough what a
beautiful dog Shiloh is.  He has brought such
love and joy to our family.  I am now a crazy
dog lady -- something I never thought I'd
become.  Shiloh is the light of our life -- he's
happy, healthy and very smart.  He brings me
my shoes for our walks each day!  I've
attached a picture for you of him.   Also,
people are so enamored by Shiloh that they
want one of their own.  We recommended
you to a friend, and now "Genevieve" has
arrived in Massachusetts. Please know that
Shiloh is well loved and cared for. Sincerely,
Sue Mansfield

Hi Evelyn,

I just wanted to give you an update on this sweet
little girl! I have to tell you… I LOVE this dog! She is
such a great, happy little pup. We renamed her
“Jazzi,” which fits her to a tee! However, we kept
part of her given name when we registered her,
which is “Jasmine Cheri” (with Cheri utilizing the
French pronunciation).  Jazzi is so her! She is a
jazzed up little pup! She has been such a joy, and a
smart pup to boot! She already knows commands
such as sit, down, watch me, stay, and will come
back up on command from a lay or sit! I’m
preparing her for her “job” as a volunteer pet
therapy pup! I know she will bring tons of joy to the
elderly and patients in the hospital.

We just finished the last of our Parvo shots last
week, so the vet gave us the go ahead to take her
on walks. With the help of our other dog, Lady,
Jazzi walked very well on the leash her first day.
The second day, she knew exactly what she was
supposed to do! So now every evening when she
sees me get out the collar, she runs over and will
sit down (on her own) by me while I put it on her!
Then she runs to the door and is ready to go. If she’
s afraid she might be missing her walk, she will
continue running to the front door with a whine and
sometimes bark to let me know it’s Walk-time!

Potty training is going wonderfully! I must say I’m
sure I owe a good bit of credit to you and the way
you get them started so early to go outside. I can
honestly say, I think we are almost there – Knock
on wood, we haven’t had any accidents in a couple
of weeks! And when we had them before, they
were far and few between!

She fits in wonderfully with her new pet-mates..
Lady and George. She and George (the cat) play
constantly!  I think he’s her best buddy!  She met
another little Bichon (sp?) in our neighborhood
tonight during our walk, and absolutely loved him –
I think we may a few play-dates coming up!  She
also LOVES to run in the backyard with her dad.
That is one of her favorite things – her dad cut her
a Cherry tree stick to play with, which is probably
as good as or better than the million toys we’ve
bought her!

She definitely has her routine down! She sleeps
with us on our bed at night (yeah, the crate thing
lasted about two nights… then she was with me
and my husband!) She’s no problem at all.  You
hardly even know she’s there, unless she needs to
go potty, and then I get a good ole’ wet kiss telling
me, “get up Mom, I gotta go!”  Her bed time is
anywhere between 9 and 10 p.m., and she lets us
know she’s ready for bed with a whine and running
to the bed!

Everyone that sees her says they would love to
have a dog like her!  Don’t be surprised if you get a
few more calls from New Mexico!  Who knows,
maybe someday we’ll be ready for another one!

Again, thanks so much for our little piece of
heaven!

Talk to you soon!
Rhonda Schaefer 

LUCY JUST BACK
FROM        THE
GROOMERS
THANKS TO THE DELGADO'S FOR THESE GREAT PICTURES !!

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
