We sold our home in the city and followed our dream and  moved to the country to live the simple life.
we have been breeding quality family raised dogs for 14 years now.
My children take an active role in raising ,socializing and caring for the puppies and their mothers.

Free time at the Long Term care Centre  visiting with puppies, and adult wheatens and schnauzers.
What better animal to love than a devoted canine! It is always such a blessing  to us to see the elderly get so much out of snuggling a dog!
The Wheaten Puppies have fun running over the horse  pasture at play time.
Playing on the trampolene with the wheaten puppy
"Trouble" is retired from having Cockapoos and follows our heels everywhere we  go out here.!Trips to the barn are her favorite to watch all the horses and cows fed.  
We Socialize our pups with other dogs on the farm large and small .This  makes their  experience out in the real world  with other canines as comfortable and familiar as possible.
Cockapoo     LOVE!!

Our little acreage
I have always had a special place in my heart for seniors.Especially shut ins in Long term.They seem to exist while the rest of the world goes on.However visiting and spending time with them is just as rewarding for us.We listen to their stories of years ago,and feel so blessed to brighten their day with some love and compassion.

I Am A Breeder
This is long and well worth the time...

I am a breeder 
My food receipts for a family of 6 and my dog food bills match 
My water bill has doubled 
My electric has tripled 
It is I, a breeder, who when my fridge quit, saved the dog meds and let the food go bad. 
My feet find the way to the kennel before I have even grabbed a cup of coffee in the morning and the kennel is my last stop before bed. 
While my friends are on a cruise to the Bahamas and my family meets for Christmas I am home delivering puppies 
I haven't had a real vacation in 7 years, but maybe soon. 
All plans are made around heat dates, whelp dates and vet dates. 
I shower and 10 minutes later my kids say I smell like a dog 
My clothes are all stained with fecal matter, urine, afterbirth or bleach 
I have to remember to clean my shoes before church 
Most of my friends breed dogs - who else can you call at 3 am for support? 
Who else has the experience I sometimes need, the med I sometimes need, or just an uplifting word I sometimes need ? 
Who else would understand how it feels to have invested hours and hours and hours in a weak puppy to lose it? 
Or the joy in investing hours in one that lives? 
I have slept on the floor beside a litter until the crucial 2 weeks have passed. 
I have bottle fed a litter of 12..feeding every 2 hours and it taking 90 minutes to do for weeks at a time. 
I have learned to be proficient at micro chipping, vaccinations, sub q fluids, bottle feeding and tube feeding. 
my vet knows me by first name 
the vet knows my children 
the vet now knows my grand children 
my vet knows it was I who added on the wing to the vet clinic 
I am a breeder 
It is to me that 63 days takes on new meaning still excited by every new life 
It is I who delivers all my pups, towels and heat lamps on ready happiness and sadness sometimes intermingled 
Even though it increases my work load, I look forward to the 10 day stage when eyes open, and puppies begin to emerge from the helplessness of newborns. 
Puppy breath, a first bath, and a heart of exploration. 
I am not uneducated, unemployable, illiterate or lazy as some Animal Rights folks would imply of breeders. 
I am a conscientious lover of animals and I have found my niche. 
I am a breeder. 
And although I feel no shame there is a part of me that feels the need to hide from powers that could come to invade my home and take my dogs ...maybe for finding a mild infraction, a leaf in the water dish? 
A kennel not yet cleaned for the day? 
A rash I am home treating? 
I tell my children to hush, do not tell others we are dog breeders, and I wonder when did breeding puppies go into the same secret place as criminal activity? 
I am a breeder and I am not cruel, dumb, uncaring or criminal. 
I am not raking in money while sitting on my butt. 
Every penny I make I earn through blood, sweat and tears. 
My greatest joy is a healthy puppy and a wonderful home. 
The cards of thanks and the pictures of my puppy with its new family is the fringe benefits of my efforts. 
I am an animal lover, nurse, midwife, heavy laborer, customer service representative, and marketer. 
AND 
I am a breeder

Abi made the front cover of a Canadian Pet magazine last year. We thought that was pretty neat!
Margie and Surprise decided the hay wasn't as sweet as sneaking through a forgotten gate to the front yard. The cow girls got pretty intrigued with the schnauzer kids playing in the front yard. However Mary poppins decided she was getting out of there fast!

"Alf" is our new addition to our family this year.   He was going through a meat horse Auction and we fell in love at first sight. He had some awful sores  and is now trusting us.. he brings a lot of laughs and joy to the seniors.in long term care.  He is quite the little gentleman.
Can i go with them ???                                                          Wait come back come back
Snuggles in the long term care centre

  This little sweetie we found in the barn. Her siblings had passed away. mom did not come back. We warmed her and started tube feeding her. She did a great comeback at only 1 day old.
   Megan knit her a tiny sweater. She seems to think we are her parents
Summer 2016
Lilly was a severe epileptic we welcomed into our family. She taught us so much about love. A heart of gold. She would talk to us in her doggie talk and make funny noises. Sadly after 5 years of having our Lilly in our life we had to make the terrible decision to put her down and say Goodbye. The seizures were not manageable anymore from our vets.We will never forget her. She holds a special place in our hearts.
