|with husband, Terry|
| I received my first puppy on my second
birthday and have had dogs for pets most of my life. My first
litter of Toy Terriers was born when I was sixteen. Since females
were not veterinarians back then, I majored in fine art, but
married and ended up raising three children. While they were in
high school, I started working for the local dentist, Dr. Seymour.
Then I remarried, inherited two stepchildren, and moved to Houston, TX
where I learned much about dogs. While working as office manager
for a Family Practice, the last of my precious Yorkies died. I
started breeding Shelties. I did Obedience and some Conformation,
earning five of my Obedience titles.
I moved back to Hernando and into my original home in 1993 and started Critter Camp & Salon Inc. I have earned four more Obedience titles with my Shelties. I finished my apprenticeship on Grooming that I had started in Houston.
Terry and I met in 1999 when he bought a puppy from me and we were married in 2004. He enjoys dogs as much as I do and helps a lot in the kennel. I own five Shelties, a Havanese, a wonderful mix, Pepper, and four cats. Terry has three Shelties.
We love our work and our customers are the best.
