The Welsh Terrier Club

Welsh Terrier Club News

Bardi McLennan, passed away on Oct 27, 2017 aged 91.


In 1993 Bardi wrote the first book about the breed (called ‘Welsh Terriers’!) since Morlais Thomas’ 1953 ‘Welsh Terrier Handbook’.  She followed this in 1998 with ‘The Welsh Terrier leads the Way’, a very comprehensive description of the history of the breed back to the Welsh origins upto the modern day dog, breeders and show ring history.


A breeder and exhibitor of Welsh Terriers since the mid-1960s, Bardi had a strong connection with Emlyn Snow and the Felstead kennels. She built up her kennel “Bardwyn” to include several top producing dogs. Her dogs earned American Kennel Club titles in conformation, obedience, and at earth dog trials, and she judged numerous competitions.


Bardi, along with four other Welsh Terrier Club of America members formed the Glyndwr Welsh Terrier Club in January 1977. She was extraordinarily connected to all things Welsh Terrier - it surely seemed as if everyone either heard of her or knew her. With a mind as sharp as a tack until her last day, she kept tabs on the results of all the shows, as well as all the dog news.
