This is our Nick: Ch. Seamist Joyful Noise, that is, and let me tell you he takes his name very seriously:-). Nick’s done quite well for himself in the show ring, winning the Skye Terrier Club of America National Specialty in October of 2002 and again in 2007, as well as many Best-of-Breed wins and Group placements. More about Nicky, including some win pictures from his show career, can be found here.

Nicky, Duncan, and Bailey check out a hole

Here are Nicky and Duncan checking out their favorite backyard hole. They are terriers, after all. That's Bailey behind them, getting ready to remind them that she dug it, so it's hers.

Here's Duncan, also known as Ch. Silverspun Sun Chieftan, after winning Winner's Dog at the STCA Roving Specialty in 2001. Duncan also received an Award of Merit. More of Duncan can be found here.

Skye 2009

First registered in 1887, only under 100 Skye Terriers were registered by the AKC in 2009.  This ranks the Skye 155th out of the 164 AKC-recognized breeds and varieties.  By comparison, the most-registered breed had over 100,000 registrations.
