QUALITY is like oats,  
if you are satisfied with oats that have already been through the horse...
Then they come a little cheaper.


We've known that there are bear nearby for many years, but we have never seen them until November 21, 2007.
Three ran across the road and when the dogs started to bark they ran up the tree at the top of our driveway.  It was a
5 year old (tagged) mom and two 11 month old cubs.  They stayed in the tree from noon until well after dark.

Emotional photo of Karin from the New Haven Connecticut newspaper after
Starsky was awarded Best in Show over 2500 dogs at the Longshore-Southport KC show.   

For those who wonder why we've used purple highlights on this website, 
it's because the ribbons awarded to the winners at dog shows are purple.
We like purple!

And God created dog

A dog thinks: Hey, those people I live with feed me, love me, provide
me with a nice warm, dry house, pet me, and take good care of me....
They must be gods!

A cat thinks: Hey, these people I live with feed me, love me, provide
me with a nice warm, dry house, pet me, and take good care of me.....
 I must be a god.
