“Dogs have always been an important part of our lives. In fact, it wouldn’t be a stretch to say that loving dogs has shaped our lives. We are professional dog lovers! All dogs… we are an equal-opportunity dog loving family.”
When Calvin and Trina married in 1985, they couldn’t imagine a home without at least one dog. Quickly they fell in love with the Chow Chow. After attending some shows they adopted an outstandingly beautiful blue male with an excellent temperament. And that was all it took. They had a new mission. As Trina puts it, “Chows had a bad reputation as really aggressive and unsafe. And we had seen some like that. But ours were very sweet and obedient. As we did research, we found that most of the problems could be traced back to poor breeding practices. We felt compelled to do what we could to scientifically improve the breed.“Still to this day, we get calls from many who adopted a Chow Chow puppy looking for another from our program.
With Calvin and Trina?s children — Zach and Nicole — came the smaller breeds: first, the Yorkie, and then later the Shih Tzu, Maltese, Biewer Terrier, and Poodle
Dogs are meant to be loved and they certainly love us. Our goal is to share the happiness our dogs have given us with others. “The world would be a nicer place if everyone had the ability to love as unconditionally as a dog.” – MK Clinton.
