18: Linda Albrecht, Foxhorn Kennel

This week’s episode of Now I See goes to the dogs when Kit McCarty interviews Linda Albrecht of Foxhorn Kennel about dog shows, breeding, grooming, training, handling and rescue.


Wire fox terriers are December dogs: they bring joy to the world. They like everybody! Your life is just not boring when you live with a wire fox terrier.

We’ve put over 200,000 miles on three minivans. You see so much more when you drive, and you make so many memories along the way.

Dogs are very intuitive. They are happy all the time. They are very forgiving, and they have taught me to be forgiving.

Dogs do the things we need to do most: they listen and don’t say anything.

Dogs have taught me discipline. When I don’t want to get up in the morning and go for a walk, I’d have two paws on my chest, and a face in my face saying it’s time to walk. On those mornings when I don’t feel like getting up, my dogs tell me it’s worth getting up.

When things don’t go the way you wish they had in the ring, that’s not where you get mad. You take it back to the set up, and you let it go.

There is nothing more rewarding than to take a dog that someone has put out or mistreated, and find that dog a forever home.

I’ve often said, “In retirement, I’m going to take in old dogs, and just sit and rock them in my rocking chair.”
