I have only a few childhood memories that don't have a dog somewhere in the picture
My first "pure breed" dog was a Dalmatian bitch named Lindy
Showing her in 4H obedience was not a challenge,
She always learned the exorcizes before I did!!!
Then there was a miniature Schnauzer and
of all things a Harlequin Great Dane!!!!
"Shortly" after that I met my Partner Ben and purchased a Chow Chow puppy for him as a "gift"
She was a wonderful dog. and sparked my interest in the Breed
I purchased my first Show Prospect Chow Chow in 1987.
Soon after that I learned about kennel names.
After about a year and three dogs later, I was still not
satisfied with any of the names we tried on for size.
Chow Chows, Standard Poodles, Miniature Poodles, and Pugs
Of course we can't keep them all,
so occasionally we do have Show and Companion dogs available.
And that may just be the understatement of the New
