About Norwich Tales


Norwich Tales is the website for those who love Norwich Terriers, whether or not you have one.  I am not a breeder, handler, or expert in the field of dogs.  I am a dog lover who has been fortunate enough to share my life with the Norwich Terrier breed since 1998, and I think the Norwich Terrier is the most charming of breeds.  Bringing a companion animal into your life is a long-term commitment, and something you should not take lightly.  It is my goal to help you determine if a Norwich Terrier, or any dog is right for you right now.

In April of 2012, I published the book, “Norwich Tales - Exploring Life With Norwich Terriers.”  It is excellent reading for those who are interested in the breed, or for anyone who loves dogs, especially those who have little experience with dogs.  I’m proud to say that my book is rated 5 Stars on Amazon.com!

Our Past, Present, and Future

Norwich Tales is a tribute to the Norwich Terrier breed in general, and more specifically to my Nigel and Divot (both who have now passed on), and most recently to Norman, who joined our family on July 3, 2012.  Each of these special dogs has graciously let me enter their whimsical world and learn about life from their unique perspective. Each dog has taught me valuable lessons about the fascinating nature of dogs, and even the nature of humans.


I'm Barbara Huffman.  I founded the Norwich Tales website in 2001, and wrote and published the book Norwich Tales - Exploring Life With Norwich Terriers in 2012.

I work as the Communications Director for a company based in Charlotte, NC. I enjoy hiking, writing,  photography, and spending time with my husband Michael and of Norman, our Norwich Terrier. I am currently working on a second book about Norwich Terriers.

I enjoy hearing from other Norwich Terrier lovers!  Email me at behuffman@norwichtales.com
