Just to let you know Pooh
Bear (aka Maverick) will be 16 months on Christmas Day. He is the most fantastic
dog! He is sweet, smart, rarely barks - and the love of our lives. His best
friend is our black kitty "Jet" - and he loves all people. People are amazed at
how friendly he is without being obnoxious or 'jittery' like some small dogs. We will definitely get
another Norwich from you someday down the line.
We are loving our new puppy. He really is perfect.
David and family
for a beautiful puppy. Sadie has a nice top line and head. Her movement is
excellent. Her attitude is just right for the show ring. She wants to play all
the time. I know the new little boy will be just as nice. We are going to call

Hi Louise, we just returned from the veterinarians office
and Bentley was a hit everybody was kissing and hugging on him thinking he was
the cutest thing and of course he is :-) They said he looked very healthy all is
well and that he is not due for any shots for three more weeks.
Thank you for the new addition to our family we love him dearly.
Sincerely, Mike and Bonnie
Hi Louise, Cooper is doing great.
He has been really good with going potty outside. We tell him "go potty" and he
knows what that means and does his business. He's a very smart dog. He's still a
little mouthy and likes to nip but we try to give him something to chew on right
away to try and break him of this.
Sincerely, Bryan and Sherry Fehnel
My Oscar is the light of my
life! I love him to pieces!!
He is the love of my life already! He is right by my side everywhere I go.
Margaux and Dundee - Oct. 6, 2014.
Dundee is fearless. She is now trying to lead the backyard patrol.
Margaux has her work cut
out for her - she loves her little friend. We all do.
I want to thank you for my little Wali.
He has brought such life and joy to our home. He is so outgoing,
intelligent,curious, and fits into our family like he's always been here. Thanks
for your recent advise in your last email. It has been a pleasure. Thanks again
Dr. Elsom said they are very healthy :-)
We are having so much fun getting to know each
other. Thank you for your dedication to be a responsible and caring
breeder! They are both so well socialized. Here is a picture of them
at the vet.
Thank you again, Renee, Sophie, and Hudson
What a pair they are !! Thank u!
Diane, and brother Michael with Hunter (Norwich Terrier)
We want to thank you so much for bringing our little Emma Louise into our
She has brought so much joy to not only our lives but to so many others here in
Florida. As you can see from the picture, she was our flower girl in our
wedding. She flew from Florida to Rehoboth Bch Delaware to be in our wedding. We
always wanted a little companion in our family to travel with us where ever we
go. Louise you are a great breeder and we just love Norwich terroirs. Hope you
didn't mind us giving our little Emma your name for her middle name. It reminds
us of you everyday we use that name.

Well we are almost a week in to having our new little baby at home with us, and
we are just so in love with her!! She is doing very well and is doing extremely well with
The vet said she is very healthy and that she is so happy to have a Norwich Terrier as a patient. She's only had one
another in her 25 years of practice.
By the way, my inlaws are so in love with her that they now may be interested in
purchasing a Norwich puppy as well!
Hope all is well,
Thank you for Wicket. We think he's great! He had added a lot of
sunshine and laughs to our world which needed his little funny self in it.
lot with easing the sadness of losing my daughter so suddenly, so we really
appreciate him. (I ordered him an Ewok costume for Halloween, and I'll get
you a picture once I do some alterations on it. It is way too long for him
in the legs, so I have some mending work to do in order for it to fit him.
But, he will look so cute with it on!)
Have a great day,
Harley has been a real joy as well as quite the challenge! She loves being with her family and follows
us around the house making sure she is always near us. She has been great with
the kids and LOVES to chase the ball when they hit it with the bat. She will do
this over and over and about 95% of the time brings it back and drops it. We
have been to three obedience classes and she passed the Good Canine Citizen
test. We still have some work to do on staying in the yard, but she loves other
dogs and animals so she will chase after them. She also goes for long walks
with me every day. She is also quite the watch dog, but we are working on the
barking. I am so glad you recommended this breed to us since we have really
enjoyed having her as part of our family.
We just wanted to give you an update on our little guy. His name is
and he has blended in very nicely to our family. Apparently he in unaware that
he is a small dog! He is now in charge of our Lab and our Norwegian Elkhound!
His health is excellent and we have already taken him for his first series of
puppy training classes. We are so thankful for him and wanted to let
you know that he is doing terrific.
All The Best,
Val & Duncan Miller
We bought our Fearghuis from you in 2009 and have found him to be the best temperament for a
companion, housemate, and beloved member of the family. He is so affectionate he has put all my previous fears about
"aloof terriers" to rest--he just isn't aloof at all. He snuggles and cuddles
and loves to be petted. He is very smart and seems to know exactly what you
tell him to do, or not to do. Thanks for breeding such quality dogs--we love
Sincerely, Rev.Dr. Bobbie Groth
Respectfully Mr Robert and Louise,
Our love for this fellow is more than I could express
and the honor you gave Brad and I to
purchase him will never be forgotten...he is an incredible little fellow.....He
gives loves, cuddles, kisses, shows tricks, and allows us to see one of Gods
little animals all due to your generosity and love for others!!
Love you all....Always & Forever,
Brad, Kath, & Andy * *
Hard for me to believe but Pippin is
2 today! He is just the sweetest, friendliest dog. We adore him. He has a fan
club of many of the young kids in our neighborhood, some even coming over to see
if Pippin can come out to play! Hope you plus dogs are all well.
Hi Louise, I
have wanted a Norwich terrier for over 20 years.
I am very suspicious
about buying anything over the internet let alone a little puppy.After months of searching I came across
Louise’s Vopelak Terriers website.I was
very impressed that the kennel is AKC inspected and licensed by the State of
Wisconsin.I then spoke to Louise about a
puppy.Louise allayed all of my concerns
- being open and forthright about the Norwich pups, their socialization process,
her philosophy on feeding and house training.
We quickly were able to make all of the arrangements to deliver our puppy to the
West Coast. When I showed up at Delta cargo the puppy was waiting for me
in a new comfortable crate with her dog food and medical records attached to the
top of the crate.The whole process at
Delta cargo took less than 5 minutes.
Two days later Lilo passed her vet check up with flying colors. Our vet
commented on how nice and healthy she was and what a nice job Louise must have
done with her.
I cannot say enough how important Louise’s early work socializing Lilo has been.Lilo is neither people nor dog aggressive.She has not destroyed anything with her chewing nor dug any holes in the
yard.She has this wonderful mellow
temperament where she just wants to be part of the family. She does love chasing
squirrels, though!The house
training schedule Louise provides with the purchase worked great!Lilo easily passed puppy obedience
I can comfortably give Louise and Vopelak Terriers my highest recommendation.-Joe
Just wanted to let
you know that as Bodie approachs a year old he is doing great! He also has
turned very blonde and grey/blue. His dispostion is great. He plays hard. He
loves fetch and tug; he will bring toys to you and "throws" them at your feet to
play with him. He also loves to cuddle; when he wants to nap he prefers a lap
to do it on and at night he has to sleep on or right next to me. I am attaching
a couple of photos for you to see how cute he is. Everyone who sees him falls in
love, even "cat" people.
Annie is a sweetie. Full of terrier ENERGY, fun and love. She
is veryaffectionate and loves to sit either next to me or on my lap. She warns
me when she hears ANYTHING, but calms quickly when I say...it's ok. Thank you
for telling me about that! :) I comb her most everyday and she seems to like
that. She sheds little because I keep her brushed and combed. She did very well
at her first grooming appointment. She is an EXCELLENT traveler. She travels in
her kennel in the back seat and sleeps much of the time.
I just want you to know how much we appreciate you and your hard work. I would
buy another puppy from you in an instant and recommend you all the time. My
hands are full with my 2 pups, but who knows what the future will bring. I am
finding that I like the Australian Terrier breed very much and would consider
As promised, I am writing you to let you know how our little guy did at the
vet. My vet loved him and everyone there couldn’t get enough of him! He has such
a wonderful little personality that you really notice when he’s in the room. The
said everything checks out well and he was most impressed
with the care he received before we got him. He was happy with our food choice
(the life’s abundance stuff) although he wasn’t familiar with it. When I told
him it wasn’t dissimilar from Arcana or Orjen he was happy. Nigel has another
round of shots in a month but that should be the last of it before yearly
boosters. We started him on Advantage because it’s flea season here and my vet
gave me three months of heartworm prevention medication for free.
His weight is good; he’s healthy and happy. He is very attached to us. We
couldn’t have asked for a more loving, cheerful and awesome dog!
I think of you
often, and love to share with the
admirers of my precious pet, Radar,
about the dear retired school teacher
who breeds these
remember the cantankerous fellow who
accompanied me on my first visit to your
kennels. He has always had Australian
Shepherds for his side-kicks,
and was quite bothered that I was not
equally fond of the breed. While I
do love his dogs, I needed something a
bit more mobile, and easier for
me to handle.
My choice of
this sweet little Australian Terrier has
also won my friends heart to the
extent of: he offered me all the money
he had acquired after a very
successful race (about $11,000) in
exchange for Radar. I refused, of course.
Radar loves to
ride on the four wheelers, golf carts,
or anything he can jump on that
moves. He travels beautifully, and fills
the void in my life as a friend
and companion after loosing my husband.
has been with us for over a month
now and has adapted nicely to her
new home. She is a pleasant, well
socialized little sweetheart, who
loves interacting with friends and
family. She is particularly fond of
our grandchildren, who range in age
from 18 months to 6 years old.
Kylie also enjoys frolicking with
our friend's Cairn terrier and
taking walks at every opportunity.
She remains calm during thunder
storms and barks only on occasion;
what a treat!
Your insight and knowledge have been
instrumental in giving us the best
companion anyone could ask for.
Though hundreds of miles separate
us, you have made our experience
personal, for which we are
grateful. We look forward to
recommending you to anyone who wants
a terrific terrier with plenty

I just wanted to thank you again for
such a wonderful little dog.
we went to the vet's office and she got
not only a clean bill of health--the vet
was impressed that she was so friendly
and healthy. I must admit, she's won me
over and then some. She was top of her
class at obedience school and she loved
playing with the other puppies. After
seeing so many other dogs interact with
each other, I really can't compliment
you enough on how well you socialized
her before I picked her up. I've seen
dogs who've been given away too early
and have pretty bad anxiety and social
problems. Not Roux. She loves people
and dogs alike and was even an angel
when my four year old niece came to
visit--her first real interaction with
children. Her best friend is a 100 lb
Great Dane who lives in our building.
They are a riot to watch and Roux holds
her own pretty well, mostly by zooming
around in circles. She's even started
"hunting" as St. Louis was plagued with
cicadas two weeks ago and she found them
fun to catch and toss in the air. I'm
curious to see what happens when she
finds the moles at my folks' house.
She's napping after the long car ride
home. . Thanks again for the top notch
breeding and work you put into your dogs
before they find homes. I
you! Jaime and Roux
Betty has certainly
become another loving family member and
changed our lives completely. She's
recently finished six weeks of a private
trainer coming in once a week for an
hour to help us teach her the basics
(sit, down, stop at the cross walks,
etc). Her whole housebreaking/potty
training was really no issue as she came
fairly trained to go outside from you.
we picked her up she was 5 lbs and she
is now at least 11 lbs. She's taken a
road trip to Mississippi w/me to see my
daughter and grandkids and she was a
total jewel the whole trip. She's
become quite well known to all the other
dog walkers in the area who all yell out
her name when they see her. We go to
the beach at the end of our street
almost daily and it takes a lot of
effort to keep her from jumping in the
water every time. She LOVES the beach
and gets very excited when we get
One question: when does
she get her first hair stripping? I
thought you said to wait until at
least six months, but wasn't sure. We
have a dog groomer nearby that claims
to do hand stripping, but I need to
All in all it's
been a smooth & fun transition into
puppy ownership, more work than
expected, but well worth the sweetness
Betty has brought to our lives. Thank
you for preparing us and breeding such a
good dog. We will always be grateful.

We want to thank the
two of you for providing such a great

spring has arrived in Necedah! Peanut
is doing great. He graduated from puppy
kindergarten through a local training
club and took the Silver medal - 95/100
for basic obedience. He heels, sits,
stays, stands and LOVES EVERYONE on two
and four feet. He's a smart and
tough little guy who is a
fide member of the family.
He will be neutered the first week of
July and has had all of his shots
including those for Lyme and lepto.
Peanut's handled each with aplomb
although the teething has slowed him
down just a bit the past 2-3 weeks. He
gets lots of walks here in the suburbs
and then gets to be a country
dog romping at our place in Wisconsin -

area with all its frogs and chipmunks to

many a person to your website. I hope
they have considered one of your dogs.
We wanted to bring you up to date on
Badger's progress. Last Saturday Badger
graduated from puppy preschool. He was
a real star, he loved all of his
classmates and they loved him. Not
only did he get along wonderfully with
all of his classmates, he also loved all
of the people. Such a friendly little
guy. He informed a lot of folks from
the training class, and the vet's
office about the Australian Terrier
breed. We hope to do agility when he is
old enough. He's very smart,
healthy and loves a job. He's the light
of our lives. Thank you for our
wonderful little Badger.

Just wanted to let
you know Hunny had her appointment with
the vet yesterday and our vet says she
Hunny is doing absolutely great on potty
training. This morning she went
outside and did both, came in and drank
her water, took her vitamin, played and
went in her crate. She wasn't even
crying when I left for work which made
it a lot easier to leave her.
She had her portraits taken on Monday and was an angel.
have attached the portrait we are using
for the Pet Photo Contest. We are
hoping she will win!
Thanks once again for providing us with
such a wonderful little puppy. She is
very well adjusted already and we are
all a very happy little family.
We continue to enjoy Izzy. She is part of the
family and part of our routine. She is
potty trained. I havebells
on our sliding door that goes to the
back yard, which I lowered for Izzy. She
like our big dogs puts her nose in the
bells to ring them when she has to go
We had a fresh snowfall last night and Izzy had a little romp on the
snow. Here are a couple of photos. She
is 11-weeks old this week.
It has been a snowy New England winter since we returned from Wisconsin.
It seems whenever Seattle gets nasty
weather, we get snow. It is not as cold
as Wisconsin and because of Izzy I am
hoping for a January thaw.
main purpose is to let you know that
were are just plain flabbergasted with
the service you and Christine gave to
us. Yours was the first website I
pulled up in search for Australian
Terriers, and just after one phone call,
I knew I didn't have to search further.
After making arrangements, tragedy
struck us but you still made it so easy
to acquire the puppy. Though I
arrived to pick up the puppy at
dinnertime, Christine brought the puppy
to me, sat with us and briefed me on the
breed, the paperwork, and made certain
that I was comfortable with the pup.
She acclimated Mattie to people so well
that the pup didn't whimper, whine or
even show any unease with me. On
our trip back to Iowa, Mattie sat in the
passenger seat and she couldn't have
behaved better. After the long
drive home, Mattie went about her
business of getting acquainted with my
wife and our 5 cats.
You and Christine are to be
congratulated for your efforts.
You go far and beyond what most breeders
do. Your service is, what we refer
to in my business, WORLD CLASS!!!!
I will be proud to give recommendations
to anyone who would ask me about your
services and "products" I know you will
treat each and every person who deals
with you with honesty and respect.
Prospective customers of yours and
Christine's can look at as many breeders
as stars in the sky and they won't find
Thank you so very
much for everything

Well it's been a week
that Monty has been with us, after all
the research I did, and all the E-Mail
and correspondence, I am thrilled with
our new Australian Terrier. Monty has
been settling in nicely, he has already
stole our hearts. I want to thank you
for all the work you put into training
him to use the paper to do his potty,
this has helped us tremendously in
getting him house trained, all the work
you did for our pup shows in how healthy
and happy he is. Monty is the perfect
pet for us, I know he is going to bring
us many years of Joy. I will keep in
touch and let you know how he is
God Bless you

As I mentioned in my email the other day, we
couldn't be happier with our new addition.
She's just wonderful; extremely intelligent,
affectionate, happy and great with everybody.
Sadie is such a joy. We are so glad you
suggested we think about an Australian Terrier.

Our Little guy is the best puppy we have ever had.
He has been
and just what we needed in our house. Our vet has
declared him to be perfect, but I have never seen a
dog that our vet didn’t love either. He got a little
tender from his lymes shots but other than that, he
is like a little brick and goes between full speed
and sound sleep. He is even starting to “kennel up”
with a bribe. We were lucky to have almost a full
week of one ear up and on earn still flopped down.
I wanted to drop you a line regarding Boomer's vet
appointment on Tuesday.
The vet checked him over and spent a long time with
She said that he was one of the healthiest puppies
she had ever seen, and
that there was absolutely nothing wrong with him!
That should make you
feel great, for everything you are doing for the
puppies is resulting in

puppy for our family.
