We're Number 105 !!

I am an individual, and everyone knows it.  I am not for everyone, and it seems like everyone is now starting to pick up on that too.

In the 2010 American Kennel Club Dog Registration statistics, Welsh Terrier AKC registrations have fallen steadily over the past ten years.  In 2000, Welsh Terriers ranked 94 out of 146 breeds in registrations.  In 2010, We ranked 105 out of 167 breeds.  In 2010, we were beat out by the Tibetan Spaniel - whatever the hell they are.  You gotta be kidding me...

This is Tibetan Spaniel:

Here's me:

I am waaaaaaaaay cuter !!!!

Yes, you are in a rarified space - you are in... the Welshie Zone !!!


  1. It's the same here in the UK. Even when I visit Wales only 35 miles away, people recognise who I am. There are only about 300 Welshie pups a year registered with the Kennel Club. Compare this with some 9,000 Border Terriers and 10,500 Staffies. I feel most sorry for the poor Skye Terrier of Greyfriars Bobby fame (ignore the Cairn and the Westie of the two Disney films - plenty of them about!). Skye's are averaging only 30 pups per year.

  2. Whoops! I meant to say "few" people recognise who I am!

  3. I feel your pain Archie !! You know what really makes me crazy? When people ask me if I'm an Airedale puppy. That makes want to just bite somebody....
