Sunkist Border Terriers
Harriet Haydon with Pretzel
Harriet Haydon started showing dogs in the late 1960's and quickly settled on Dalmatians as her breed of choice. Growing up on a ranch, married to a cowboy and living out in the country, made this an easy choice.
When looking for a smaller dog for her children, she came across the Border Terrier. Although she'd never seen one, several books said that they were good with children. So the hunt was on. It took a lot of searching in 1984 to find a puppy but finally Maggie was on her way. The day she shot out of her crate at the airport and flung herself on eight year old Jason with cries of joy changed all our lives forever!
Many years and generations later Border Terriers are still the center of Harriet's life. She can't imagine life without them! As she says 'Still Border Terrier crazy after all these years!'.
Harriet is a breeder judge of Dalmatians and Border Terriers and has no plans to judge any other breeds. She has judged both the Canadian and US national specialities for Border Terriers and just completed her second judging assignment at the Montgomery County all terrier show in October, 2011. She has also judged several Dalmatian specialties. Harriet will be judging a Dalmatian specialty in Arizona in March 2012.
Harriet is a Breeder of Merit and also a Gold Bred-By-Exhibitor for having finished more than 10 dogs out of the bred-by class.
