Who are you guys?
2009 calendar welsh terriers
Glad and Detta's litter have all been spoken for. We look forward to watching these pups grow and go tho their new homes.
A list for the next litter is underway. If you are interested in exploring the possibility of getting a pup, please Phone 276-677-3851 or email kissingrock at va dot net
The next breeding is estimated to be in January, bringing pups in March, ready for homes in May.
I am happy to speak with anyone interested in the Welsh Terrier.
Please scroll down and enjoy the look at the wonderful dogs here at KRK.
Detta and Glad have 4 new pups! Two males and two females were born on 9.10
Two pups are currently under deposit. Please phone or email to inquire about the possibility of getting a pup from this litter.
Detta grows fat, and is due shortly. She will have an x-ray this week to see how many pups she is carrying. One pup is currently under deposit.
Inquiries are welcome. kissingrock at va dot net, or phone 276-677-3851
Detta has been bred to Gladwyn. All going well, she should whelp around the second week of September. If you are interested in discussing a pup, please give a call to me at
276.677.3851 or email kissingrock at va dot net.
Update: Sadie has been placed in a great home! Be a good girl Sade!
While we don't usually have adult dogs, Sadie came to us due to her owner's serious illness and inability to continue to care for her. She is 5 years old, spayed, and utd on shots, worming, etc.
She is a lovely girl, on the large side, very playful and smart in that wiley terrier way. She is lovely in the house. She needs a family with fenced yard that is knowledgable about terrier behavior. She gets along with other dogs as long as they are properly introduced. Sadie can be very strong on the leash when encountering other dogs. We've been working on that. Her family will need to continue training on this.
Family needs to live within driving distance of southwest Virginia, as I will not ship her.
Sadie is pictured below.
We welcomed Tesni to our pack last month. Tensi, from the Welsh, meaning "Warmth of the Sun". She is 5 months old, and a loving and active pup. We look forward to raising her along with one of Wynnie and Monkeyman's girls this summer.
Wynnie has been bred to Monkeyman for a late March litter. At this time, 5 pups are spoken for. She will have an ultrasound in about 3 weeks to determine how many she is carrying. We are hoping for at least 5!
At least one breeding is planned for June/July heats. If you are planning ahead, please contact us to talk about the possibility of adding a Kissing Rock pup to your family. E-mail kissingrock at va dot net, or phone 276.677.3851
Please enjoy the site!
We often get questions about compatibility with other pets. A couple of years ago, I got one that stumped me. "Will a pup get along with a Bearded Dragon?"
My best answer was. Don't know. Hopefully, it's just a matter of proper introduction and training. My biggest fear was that the Dragon, Brisbane, would bite Denbigh's nose off. I should have saved it. Den's folks did a stellar job of fostering inter-species detante. And we've got the pictures to prove it! Good boys!
Detta has 3 lovely boys by Gladwyn. She is a first time mother, and doing just fine. All pups are currently under deposit. A winter breeding is planned for Wynnie, and hopefully will produce a litter ready for placement in late spring. If you are interested in getting on the list for Spring '13, please give a call or e-mail. We're always glad to talk Welsh Terriers. 276.677.3851 or kissingrock at va dot net.
Here comes Detta and her lovely pack of boys.
Vala had 3 beauties, 2 female, one male. They're all going to great homes around Thanksgiving. Here they are from birth to today. Growing fast and becoming their funny little individual selves.
They grow so fast! Before we know it, they're ready to go out and explore the big shiny world.
They ride increasingly bigger baskets to get out. I sound like a crazy pup lady, murmuring "Wee-wee, doots outside" all the way. soon they will be big enough to run all the way from their inside quarters to the yard without stopping to create more work for their peep.
Week by week we go further from the known world. We encounter obstacles. At first even tall grass stumps them. Ah, but then we turn from babies into. Adventure Pups! Fallen limbs, pipes and stumps. Nothing stops inquiring noses.
This is a very bold trio of pups. Usually, I will have to encourage them to enter the pipe. These Adventure pups did not need any urging at all. They were in and out, up and down, all over that thing before I could say "Git it!"
As usual, upon return from Adventuring, it's nappy time.
Wynnie's pups flew out the door at 9 weeks, ready for their homes and eager to get started in their new lives.
As always, they had enough to eat,
had plenty of walks, as well as the usual vetting, health care, and socialization.
Vala is due around Labor Day. We eagerly await the litter. She is carrying 4, and all pups are under deposit at this time.
In July, we welcomed Claudette to the pack. She is a lovely and gentle girl. She has been bred to Gladwyn for a mid-October litter. If you'd like to consider one of these pups, please call me at 276.677.3851, or e-mail kissingrock at va dot net.
The lovely Claudett
Pups are $975. which includes microchip and limited AKC registration.
Thanks for visiting the site. Visitors to the kennel are always welcome, by appointment. Please continue to scroll down for a look at the history of the Pack.
3/5/12 Time flies for the busy.
Miss Tegwyn has been confirmed with 6 pups due about St. Patrick's Day. Seems a lot of holiday whelpings around here. We do love the holidays!
Please give a call 276-677-3851, or e-mail kissingrock at va dot net, if you want to chat about the possibility of adding a pup to your family.
Clyde (pictured below) is once again the sire. That was a lovely cross, and we expect this litter to be very nice as well. Two pups are under deposit. Price is 975usd, microchip included. A 2 year health guarantee concerning genetic defects is offered.
If you're looking around, but not yet ready for a pup, please consider getting in touch about the next litter. Vala should be coming in sometime in June, and a breeding is planned.
We invite you to scroll down and feast your eyes and heart on our history. Enjoy!
Good date. Pups are 4 weeks, 4 days.
They're starting to explore a bit. Hoping the weather is good to us, we'll hit the farm for a real puppywalk over the weekend. Right now, it's mostly pupstandarounds while they sit on my feet. Or retreat to the safety of the basket trolly.
Our little stand around started when things got a little rowdy after nappy-time.
"All ur kages are belong to us. I iz plottin eskape."
I like to keep the canine "plottin" to a minimum, so figured I'd just take them out right before the gloaming.
Wynnie is being bred to a cute little feller named Clyde. I'm excited about the cross, and look forward to pups in late August, reaady for homes in early November. Please give a call if you're interested in adding a Kissing Rock pup to your family.
Vala had 4 beautiful pups on the 20th. Three have been sold, and the fourth has a deposit pending. Thank you to all who are inquiring, and please let me know if you'd like to be put on the list for the next litter.
Meanwhile, please scroll down and enjoy the history of past litters.
This picture brings joy to my heart. Why? Denbigh pup is getting exercise, and plenty of it, by the looks of it. That's great, and necessary for a healthy body and mind. And it's great that Aaron is getting some at the same time.
But look closer. See that red to the right of the pup? That's his leash. Although Denbigh is "at liberty" and running with his pack leader, his brilliant leader has left a handle on the dog, and this is what thrills me so. Pup protection rules, or it should. Tragedy can happen in a heartbeat. Little things we do can make our furry friends safe as they learn to navigate the new world, and become responsive to us.
Thank you Arron. I sleep better at night, knowing how much you care, and that you are a thinking dog-man.
Now, some pictures of Val and Gladwyn's new litter.
Stretch has been adopted.
Please scroll down for pictures of previous litters and purchase inquiry information.
Happy New Year to all.
Pups are here! On 12/27, Vala whelped 5 pups. There are 2 males and 3 females. At 8 days old, they are growing fast and fat. Their little coats shine with a purple hue, and they snuffle around, eager to see the world. For now they have to be content with smelling and hearing it.
The boys are very masculine, with nice broad necks and shoulders. The girls display a lovely feminine look. Vala and Gladwyn have produced a very nice litter!
One of the girls rests between nursing and snuffling around.
The boys just hanging around, waiting for their stomachs to tell them that they need to find momma.
If you are planning to show or breed, please let me know, and regular registration can be discussed.
There are lots of pictures of Myfanawy, Vala and Gladwyn (Cactus Jack of Happytails) below. Scroll down to enjoy a trip through the history of Kissing Rock Kennel.
Sigh. I am pupless for now. As nice as it is to see such happiness being brought to folks by these pups, it's hard not to feel just a bit empty-nestish.
Little King Leonidas asks his new mom for a boost up off the chilly ground.
Merry Christmas. Leo and Alexis, new best friends.
One of the joys of breeding is folks sending me pictures of the pups, all grown up! Here's little Leo, maybe not ALL grown up, but well on his way. Rags to Riches!
Before his first haircut
And here is the handsome boy, just a little bit older, and with a proper cut. I am constantly amazed by how beautiful these fuzzy pups become.
After a refreshing wallow in the new skiff of snow, Fanny keeps a watchful eye on the pups. They are 6 weeks old, and they keep me, their Aunt Vala and Fanny pretty busy.
Gladwyn is an interested and active daddy-dog. He teaches the pups the meaning of rough and tumble. Learning to respect the Big Dogs is a valuable lesson for a little pup.
Aunt Vala is a wonderful baby-sitter. She teaches the difference between fun time talkies and growly-face.
Spirit flies at the sound of someone wanting to see her! All the pups are so anxious to please! And be hugged. Give doggy kisses.
All the pups like to help Fanny as much as they can. Huggy helps clean the snowballs off mom's foot. Or perhaps she is just being pesky. They do that to me too, even when I don't have snowballs.
The Jack Grace is the primary teacher of the meaning of Ugly Face. A veteran mom, she is invaluable to us in making the pups safe as they prepare for new homes. Fanny keeps a close eye on the lesson.
Fanny had 4 pups on October 21st. They are the cutest little black slugs! All are doing well. There are 3 girls and a boy.
All have been sold.
Congratulations to the new moms and dads!
I'll be spending the next months getting to know the pups, and the new families, to insure a good match for all.
Vala and Glad have been bred. She should be whelping around the first of the year, with pups ready the first week of March
If you are interested in a pup, please scroll down to the September entry for information on pricing and deposit.
After you have read, if you would like to discuss the possibility of purchase,
Fanny has been ultra sounded, and is carrying at least 3 pups. They should be whelped around the middle of October, and ready for new homes right at Christmas.
HO, HO, HO! What's on my list for Santa are perfect homes for these little bundles of joy!
Fanny will want to know what you are going to do with her pup, where it will live, and if you know what you are getting into by bringing a terrier dog into your family.
Gladwyn (Cactus Jack of Happytails) is the sire.

The boys turned 1 week old on friday. They are fat and shiny. I swear that when I got home from work last Thursday, said "Wow! You guys have gotten BIGGER while I was gone!"
And so it goes. I am eagerly awaiting the Opening of the Eyes, for that is the beginning of t.r.o.u.b.l.e.
Fun kind of trouble. Laughnig over it kind of trouble.
Oh boys, here we go.
It was a beautiful sunny day, so the pack went outside for the first time.
Lots of napping going on. Calm before the storm.
Vala thought they should play in the dirt and grass, despite my laying down of the flannel sheet. They did not seem to mind. It did not disturb their repose.
Vala presented us with pups yesterday. All went well, and they are bright and shiny little fellers. Fellers? As in boy dogs?
Yes, all male. And if they are like their sire, or grandsire, they'll be fantastic dogs!
If you are interested in seeing Gladwyn's sire, Ch Purston As Good As It Gets, click on Happy Tails below to go to his home kennel website in Romania.
On the left of the page, when you hover your mouse over "Gents" a menu will appear, and you can click the Goody button to see Glad's sire.
You can also see his half-brother Alex, by clicking the link that says "Alex-Junior World Winner in Dortmond"
Glad says he wants to be a show dog, because he has so many brothers and sisters that have earned Championships and Junior Championships! We'll see.
Unfortunately, Fanny turned up not pregnant. We'll try again in fall.
Please send an e-mail if you are interested in discussing possible purchase of one of these great little boys.
Here's little Gryphon's Rocket Radar, waiting patiently for his flight to Washington last winter. He was 9 weeks old, with the wisdom and patience of a Saint.
Rocky boy is all grown up now. He writes his mama Fanny, on a regular basis, with news of what he is doing. He's a good boy, and writes regularly.
His last letter:
Gess what? We gotz bunnirabbetz here. Mossatime the be outta da fence, but Sonar sez he cached one be4. The peeksure inna box proves you ken catchum.
I'm gonna tri hard!
Rocky don spel 2 gud, but that's ok. Fanny doesn't read all that well.
He often has his people include an attached picture of himself which he calls putting "peeksure inna box".
He's so vain, he probably thinks this site is about him!
Myfanawy and Vala were bred in late February and early March. If all goes well, that should produce a passell of pups ready to meet their new people in late June.
Gladwyn is the sire. Please scroll down for some pictures of Fan, Val and Glad, previous litters too.
Gladwyn, the Happy Friend, is growing into a good looking dog. He and his friend Vala are quite the playpals, and have a couple of great tricks. My favorite is the "double fetch".
Fanny whelped on July 7th. The litter consists of 3 males and one female. They have all been sold.
Congratulations to the new families. Pups are going to Washington, Ohio, New York and Mass.
Another litter is planned for next Spring. As fast as summer has gone by, it will seem like no time at all.
Deposits are always accepted on future litters. Seems like there are just not enough of these little darlin's to go around!
The females are priced at $950, males at $850, with limited registration.
Regular registration is also available.
Fanny will be bred this Spring, as will her daughter Vala.
Gladwyn will be the sire.
It's been a warm winter so far, so I've been doing a little winter gardening, preparing for spring planting.
Vala is a big help.
Here is "Smitty" sire of Fanny's '06 litter, with Vala offering her bone. She is such a generous pup!
