Welcome to

Home to the Gentle Giant Newfoundland, the Magnificent Bernese Mountain dogs


My first magazine interview about my dogs

I am aware of the bad reviews these Show breeders have posted. They claim their goal is to protect the Newfoundland breed from people who, essentially, are not part of their Club - or those they do not believe should breed, and so on. They are the height of presumption and pretension. Worse, they know no lengths as to how far they will go to attempt to destroy someone who stands up to them.
I have been standing up to them for years, but this time they have gone too far. The lies these people have posted are horrendous. The sad thing is people believe everything they read online.
I have dedicated my whole life to my wonderful dogs. I have met so many wonderful families who still send updated pictures and Christmas Cards. I get emails from people thanking me for the best dog they have ever had. Or the families I have helped with special needs children. How patients light up when they see my dogs come into the hospitals. I am not saying I am perfect like them but I am not this monster they want you to believe I am.
So please take a few minutes and go through my web site to see what I stand Up for

"Just A Dog"

From time to time, people tell me, "lighten up, it's just a dog,"
or, "that's a lot of money for just a dog."

They don't understand the distance traveled, the time spent, or the costs involved for "just a dog."

Some of my proudest moments have come about with "just a dog."

Many hours have passed and my only company was "just a dog,"
but I did not once feel slighted.

Some of my saddest moments have been brought about by "just a dog,"
and in those days of darkness, the gentle touch of "just a dog" gave me comfort and reason to overcome the day.

If you, too, think it's "just a dog," then you will probably understand
phrases like "just a friend," "just a sunrise," or "just a promise."

"Just a dog" brings into my life the very essence of friendship, trust,
and pure unbridled joy.

"Just a dog" brings out the compassion and patience that make me a better person.

Because of "just a dog", I will rise early, take long walks and look longingly to the future.

So for me and folks like me, it's not "just a dog" but an embodiment of all the hopes and dreams of the future,
the fond memories of the past, and the pure joy of the moment.

"Just a dog" brings out what's good in me and diverts my thoughts away
from myself and the worries of the day.

I hope that someday they can understand that it's not "just a dog",
but the thing that gives me humanity and keeps me from being
"just a man or woman."

So the next time you hear the phrase "just a dog"
just smile...
because they "just don't understand."
