Arnprior, Ontario Canada (near Ottawa)
My husband Jose and I have owned dogs since we first met
over 20 years ago. We both share a love for dogs and
often sit in our house and laugh at how goofy our dogs are
while we marvel about their strange behavior.
In addition to our dogs, we have three beautiful sons who
were born in 2003, 2005, and 2007. We have had to slow down
our breeding and showing during recent years but we are
thrilled with our children and hope that they will grow up
to share our love of the dogs.
We now have 4 Bulldogs that we actively show and
breed . We try not to have more than four in the house
because any dog who lives with us is an active member of
the family and we have learned the hard way that more than
4 dogs (especially with young children) can become chaos.
In addition to the dogs, we have Silly the cat and Ashton
the parrot. Silly is a Norwegian Highlander and came to us
through Nancy Schultz all the way from Maryland. Everyone
who meets him wants one. He is majestic like a cat, plays
with the dogs like a puppy, and isn't afraid of a thing. He
is just awesome!!! As for Ashton... Well, she speaks
constantly and makes it difficult to work from home. Ashton
was born in 2000 and has been a constant source of joy
Jose and I both have “real jobs” to finance our Bulldog
habit. Currently Jose is a Project Manager working for HP.
I am a Sales Specialist working for Oracle.
