I fell in love at my first dog show when I was only in the fourth grade.  I was mesmerized by the dogs that seemed to glide effortlessly around the ring, almost as if by magic.  My favorite was the Afghan Hounds as I loved the flowing coats, but I honestly wanted to take home one of every breed I saw.

I never stopped going to shows or sharing my life with wonderful dogs.  My first great love that lasted 15 years was with my Beardie Collie.  Years later I stepped into the ring for the first time with Soft Coated Wheaten Terriers.  I quickly learned there was nothing effortless about this sport!  As much as I loved Wheatens, my heart ached for my shaggy sheepdog and that led me to my forever breed, Polish Lowland Sheepdogs (PONS). 

Today I am a proud owner/handler/hobby breeder.  My dogs live in my home and are part of my family.  We live outside of Las Vegas, Nevada where I work as a private practice psychotherapist, write books and raise dogs.  Willow is the first and only Champion PON in Nevada, but now boasts her beautiful Champion son and her daughter is on her way next!
