I got my first two Havanese in 2009, was encouraged by the breeder to show them and I was hooked! I currently have five Havanese including BISS GCH Harbor's Mad About You a.k.a. "Maddie" who was the #1 owner handled Havanese in 2013. Maddie had her first litter in December of 2014 and two of her puppies have entered the show ring. One of my males, Major, is an obedience and rally champion. I am also a member of the Havanese Club of America and the Mid Florida Havanese Club.
I got my first husky in 1992 and had my first litter of puppy in 1995. I am a member of the Siberian Husky Club of America and the Greater Atlanta GA Siberian Husky Club. I am very proud to have bred, co-owned, and finished 7 Champions. I am a past president of this club and have been a member for over 11 years.
Founder and Charter Member of the Greater Venice Florida Dog Club (1979). I have had a variety of dogs all my life, but Afghans are my passion!

I am an AKC Conformation Judge for 15 breeds and for Junior Showmanship, an All-Breed Coursing Judge for AKC since its inception in 1991 and an All- Breed Coursing Judge for the American Sighthound Field Association since 1979. I have written for numerous Afghan magazines over the years on a variety of subjects. I just love all things dogs!!
