“I am a dog breeder. Dog Lover. I am dedicated to spend my 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. If we don’t support each other – we are doomed as a fancy.” ~ Anon
