I have been a lifelong animal lover, and I grew up showing a miniature poodle in the 4-H obedience program. From there I graduated to horses, and horses and dogs were constants in my life.
I started in Australian terriers in 1989, when I visited the home of a reputable breeder. I had never seen an Aussie before that day, but when a tiny puppy made eye contact with me I was smitten. Teddy came home with me, and eventually became my first champion.
Since then, I have shown and titled dogs in conformation, agility, earthdog and obedience. Many champions, performance titleholders and champions of the heart have come from the litters I’ve bred. My life with Aussies has enriched me in countless ways as I’ve traveled the world and made lots of new friends. So should you decide to share your life with an Aussie, you’ll enjoy the companionship of a special kind of friend, one who will share your heart and hearth, or travel the country with you.
Currently I live in central Illinois with my husband Jason and our family of dogs and cats. So if you ever get to Bloomington, stop by and meet us, and our special friends.
