I am a dog breeder.
I spend a lifetime learning pedigrees, genetics, breed standards and learning from those in my breed and those outside it.
I raise each litter as if I gave birth to them and spend an equal amount of time finding them loving forever homes.
I only put animals on this planet that I think will be the healthiest (mentally and physically) and nicest examples of their breed.
I support each family who chose one of my babies and let them know they are now a part of our extended family.
I celebrate their wins in shows with my stock.
I shed a tear when one dies.
I am there if one needs to come back.
I hold them when they arrive and leave this world.
I share my knowledge and socialize my dogs so that they will be the advertisement for my dedication.
I don't keep track of the money and time I put in to my love of them,
it would not be a true measure of how I feel.
The price I charge for my babies is never profit, but investment in the next generation.
I am not ashamed of who I am... I work hard at being a good dog person and encouraging others to be the same.
I am a breeder and I am proud of it.
