Here I am at my first match (and in dire need of some
handling lessons), and in College.
This is my previous home and barn in Northern California.
About Me

When I was 5 years old, I was breeding Dutch Rabbits.  It was a natural progression to wanting a puppy, so when I
was nine years old, my parents bought me a puppy from a reputable Keeshond breeder.  She encouraged me to
attend a Match, and then a Dog Show.  I was hooked!  My first litter of Keeshonden was bred when I was 12 years
old, and I was fascinated by the cute results of all the planning, ethics, genetics, art and science included in the dog
world.

After attaining a B.A. in Horsemanship (Equine Studies), I moved to a very hot climate, so a change of breed was in
order.  I researched and landed on the Vizsla.  I am captivated by their desire to please, their affection, and the fact
that they are like no other dog on Earth.

Over the years, I have also raised Miniature Horses, finches, ducks, chickens, pigeons, and a turkey.  I guess you
can say that raising animals is in my blood!

This was my home in Tennessee, the dogs had to get used to
a smaller backyard.
