I started breeding dogs in the early ’70s, but settled into
Miniature Pinschers and Brussels Griffons in the late ’70s. I
bred many champions in both breeds with little breeding
each year. I showed my own dogs and helped a few friends
a long the way. I also had Working breeds through the
years. I have owned Great Danes, Giant Schnauzers and
Bullmastiffs. I now have my second Kerry Blue Terrier. I
started judging in 1994, and have judged in many other
countries as well as all over the US. I have judged both of
my breeds National Specialty twice. I have been privileged
to judge many other breed specialties through the years.
I always feel it’s such an honour to be asked to judge any breed specialty. I truly love to judge
and enjoy every one of my assignments.
I have been married for 36 years and have a one wonderful daughter and one perfect 15-yearold
granddaughter. I have belonged to many dogs clubs through the years, but now I am Vice-
President of the Kennel Club of Palm Springs. I also belong to Orange Empire Dog Club and
the American Brussels Griffon Association. I am very active in our Kennel Club of Palm Springs.
We put on one of the largest and most beautiful dog shows in the United States, with entries
of well over 3,000 dogs each day.
