I have always loved dogs, even if I was scared to death of
them. I would not go to peoples homes if I knew they
had a dog. No matter the size. It kept me from doing a
lot of things. In 1972 I went to a County Fair in
Monroe County, Washington. Saw the cutest dog I had
ever seen. They had a "Dog Show" so I was able to find
out that he was a Pomeranian. He was gorgeous. I
felt differently towards him than any other dog.
stayed in my memory bank.
In the late 1980's I
finally got a home and we decided we would get a dog.
I of course ONLY wanted a Pomeranian. After looking at
a lot of breeders and what they had I found "Rascal" and he
was so great. After the first night of sleeping on the
floor next to him, we decided that he needed a friend to
play with. To make a long story short we ended up with
three. It worked so
they all got along so well.
These Poms changed my
life for good and would never go back to a life without dogs
There are so many people
that have come into my life because of the dogs that mean
the world to me. I have learned from everyone of them. I
still have not been able to learn Show grooming. Maybe some
day if I live long enough. I want to continue learning
and doing something good for the breed. I believe that
health, temperament and structure are all equal in
importance. Also to do this and stay with in the AKC
I will continue working
with responsible breeders to help do what is good for the
