I have been showing and breeding Miniature Pinschers since the early 80s, having many top winners throughout the years. My first minpin was an obedience dog, and after achieving his CDX obedience title I was hooked on this wonderful breed. I purchased a conformation show dog from Marcia Tucker, and quickly had our first champion, Ch Sunsprite Dandy Brandy. Many other champions followed, but a very special dog in my life was "Stretch", BISS Ch Roadshow Steppin On The Edge purchased from Paula Gibson. "Stretch" was a multiple group winner, as well as winning Best in Show at the Minpin National in 1999 from the Veterans class. Although no longer with me, he will always have a special place in my heart.
I discovered the joy of owning a Toy Fox Terrier, purchasing a male from Dana Plonkey in 2008. CH Valcopy C-Lyn Sharpshooter, "Shooter", quickly became our first TFT champion. Then came additional champions! All our TFTs are health tested.
We acquired another breed in 2020, a Hungarian breed called a Pumi. They are herding dogs, very intelligent and loyal, and were fortunate enough to get the two we have from a well known successful breeder, Maria Arechaederra. These dogs have brought more joy and laughter in our home! As with the TFTs, our Pumik are health tested.
My husband, Ed, and I have a small kennel focused on quality and maintaining soundness and structure. We are located in Columbia, Tennessee, and enjoy this beautiful state! We enjoy traveling to shows in our motorhome throughout our wonderful country.
