Wooo, tuff day.

Rachel goes home with her new owners.

At 6 years old its time for Rachel to retire. We found a wonderful local home in the Osborn Family who have promised to love and take great care of her. I am sure once Rachel settles in she will provide her new family great entertainment and lots of love. 

Rachel is settling in...

Hi Christopher,

Rachel has done just as you said, lots of pacing, but staying close to us. She

had been out to the backyard with Jack a few times. Ignored the cats

completely. She scratched at the bathroom and garage doors when she couldn't

see me. She has settled here between us for the moment.

Osborn family comes for a visit...

The Osborns are a local family who have fostered a Westie in the recent past and are considering adding a new family member. Though it was cold and damp there was nothing stopping them... and my dogs from enjoying each others company today.

Nicki wins again at Ridgefield Washington

Go, Nicki, go!!! Nicki (White Diamonds Uniquely Dungeness) had a good weekend at the Greater Clark County KC show in Ridgefield, WA. On Saturday, she was RWB (3-4-0-1) but, Nicki's mother Zoe (Ch Unique's Star Spangled Banner) went Best of Breed under Judge Charlotte Patterson. Sunday, Nicki was awarded Best of Breed (3-5-0-0) under Judge Robert Shreve. The best part is Nicki really enjoys the dog shows! Nicki is my Dashiell's daughter. Both Nicki and her mother Zoe are owned by Christopher Larson (owner/breeder/handler) and co-owned by Karen Whalen. Look for Nicki's brother Sunny in the ring soon...

Merry Christmas EVERYONE!

Hi Chris,

I thought you’d enjoy these Xmas Santa photos of our family taken yesterday. Teddy & Tug (as you can easily see in the picture J) are doing really well and are the “gifts” that keep on giving. Merry Xmas and happy holidays to you and White Diamond Terriers. You’re doing really great work on many levels. Much appreciated. Best, Phil, Michelle, Teddy & Tug

Cricket... and Valerie come for grooming, lessons.

Valerie Wise and her girl Cricket came down from Idaho for a little grooming and a lesson. Cricket is about 10 months old and was a very good girl to stand on the table for over two hours to be groomed. Valerie is was also very enthusiastic to learn as she wants to show Cricket herself.

Looks like both will do just fine in the ring. Best of Luck!

A Special Request....

I received an interesting phone call the other day from a local couple.... Monty and Jackie Rosca ask something of me that there was no way I could deny them of.

There son was home on Military leave from the Marines in Afghanistan and his only request before he returned to service after his Thanksgiving break was to be surrounded by dogs as they love unconditionally and it it would bring peace to him as well... The Rosca family currently has a West Highland White Terrier and I gladly made room in my schedule for there surprise visit.

There son had no idea why he was coming over as they all walked in the door. I explained to him what had been asked of me, thanked him for his military service and walked them into the back yard. All my dogs rushed out to greet the Rosca family and it brought an instant smile to there sons face which made everyone very happy!

Towards the end of there visit I found out they was on his way to the airport sending there son back to serve our country. It was a pleasure and an honor to be able to make this wish come true.

God Bless our Military!

My puppy Nicki goes Best of Breed both days at the Vancouver KC!!

At 9 months of age my girl Nicki (White Diamonds Uniquely Dungeness) takes Best of Breed not one but BOTH days at the Vancouver Kennel Club show. This was her first official AKC conformation event. Nicki and I competed against 3 other girls and 2 boys the first day then 5 girls and 2 boys the second day for a total of 3 points toward her Championship.

Nicki has some of the best structure I have seen in a Norwich Terrier in a long time, just like her sire Dash. Nicki is owned by myself and Karen Whalen of Phoenix Arizona.

Its been awhile since I have been an owner breeder handler.In 2010 I had the #1 West Highland White Terrier in the Nation. Let's see how far Nicki will go....

Dash and Lil finally have a successful litter!

Dash:  "Every time I hear a puppy squeak, I run over to the pen to find out what's happening!  No one will let me help!  I'm a part of all this, too!"

Lil looks in: "How are my babies?"

Lil is a great mom, and her babies are getting fat!

Dash is owned primarily by my client Elaine Jong of Western Washington. He currently ranks amongst the top 10 Norwich and Terriers in the Nation for 2012. Dash and I have had great success in the ring. Here's to 2013!

Congratulations on your first litter Elaine!!!

Halloween all over North America...

Hi Chris,

Here we have a Secret Agent, Cheerleader & Little Red Riding-hood!

Hope you have a great Halloween!!

Hugs from the Peacocks!

Duffy wins.. again and again and again!

The winning never ends here at White Diamond Terriers!

Pictured here is Duffy owned by Steven and Robin Ryan of Western Washington. Initially it was not their desire to have Duffy shown, he was just supposed to be a good couch dog but with a little encouragement from his breeder Sandy Davis recommending my services as a handler look where he is now. Duffy took a 5 point major during the Terrier Specialty Weekend in Redmond Washington and three 3 point majors following that!!!
Duffy needs only one single point to finish out his AKC conformation title.

Do you think your couch warmer might have the talent to become an AKC Champion, there is only one way to find out.

Join the Team. White Diamond Terriers

Hi Chris,

Just an update! It has been a while. Lloyd and I got married and Al was a special part of our day as he is every day. We are in love. He has gained a little weight and barely fit in his suit, but we made it work. He is now on a post wedding diet of chicken and rice.

I hope all is well.

Thank you!

Hard to believe it but Henri turned 4-yo yesterday. Happy Birthday, Henri!!! We weren't sure we would have the opportunity to see him grow up and we have. Thank you to everyone that has joined us on this journey with Henri. Our entire family has been blessed by the community that has rallied around caring for Henri.

Henri enjoyed his birthday by celebrating with a special treat. Even on a limited ingredient can still celebrate! See pics.

Thank you,


Hope dad get's home soon.. What a handsome group of Norwich Terriers!


 Thank You Sylvia for sending a picture of Sunny, Teddy and your new little guy Bo! Here are the boys waiting for dad to come home. Now that's love and dedication!

The Sorrows and Joys of owning a Westie...

His sister Sara who was ranked #1 Westie girl in the United States in 2010 would be appalled at this state of cleanliness... All Westies enjoy a little romp in the mug after a grooming and bath... Don't they? Later you can See Milo trying to "kiss up" to a family member after his bath... Thanks Jody!
