Kerry People of the Past

The United States Kerry Blue Terrier Club and our Breed owes a debt of gratitude to the breeders, exhibitors, and fanciers of Kerry Blues who have come before us. 

The United States Kerry Blue Terrier Club will never forget the contributions of the many members who have come before us.  We want to provide a way to remember those members regardless of role in the USKBTC who have supported our Club and Kerry Blue Terriers in the past.  This page is intended to that.

We are asking those of you who know a deceased USKBTC member (no matter how far in the past) to submit a brief write-up for this Page of Honor.  Digital material only and a photo (jpg format) will be included in the post.   All material will subject to editing for space.  Please submit your input to  For complete details and the format to submit please follow this link (Wall of Honor.)

It will take months to build this list and it will only be possible with your help.

                Donald Wilde purchased his first Kerry Blue Terrier, Connell’s Wild Irish Rose in 1987.  In 1988 he and Rosey’s breeder headed off to the Montgomery Kennel Club show.  The plan was to have the breeder show Rosey.  Because of a conflict, Don showed her.  He put on his Irish cap and that became his trademark in the ring.

                Don and wife Jean bred and showed Kerry Blue Terriers under the Cordial prefix.  A name which truly described Don to those who knew him.

                Don was active in the United States Kerry Blue Terrier Club serving on the Board of Governors and ultimately as President.  He served as the first Chair of USKBTC Charitable Funds.  Don was the driving force for the formation of the Lower Michigan Kerry Blue Terrier Club.

         Martha Nazak was outgoing and dynamic …. a loyal wife, mother, grandmother and friend.  She was truly a creative artist in many disciplines, which contributed to her expertise in grooming and setting Kerry ears. She was strong competitor, but family and friends always took priority.  

         She and her husband Bob bred and showed Kerry Blue Terriers for many years under the Whimsy prefix.  They owned 2 National Specialty Best of Breed winners.  Martha actively served on the United Kerry Blue Terrier Board of Governors and Chaired the Haymarket Futurity for several years.  When help was needed she was the “helping” hand.

         Through her many adventures as a Navy wife, she raised three great kids and received tremendous joy in being a grandmother.  Martha always had a passion for dogs and loved all aspects of being involved the Kerry Blue community.  She was a friend and mentor to all.
