Reba, f.

An AKC registered Standard Poodle and the beginning of my retirement dream, Reba is my personal sweetheart. I got her when she was a tiny puppy back in 2020 with my stimulus money. 

Knowing my son and daughter would one day want to breed their pet dogs, I decided that Reba could be an answer to several prayers at once. According to the breeder I got her from, her mother placed well in several shows. Reba is such a professional cuddler, she is known to melt into you on the couch. Good luck getting up after that!

Butters, m.

He's a one-of-a-kind dog and comes from hunting champion bloodlines on both sides. His mom, Beamer, was a Valhalla Hunt Club and Kennels foundation stock before she was retired and adopted by my daughter. Butters is one of her sons with Charleston, another hunting champion. 

Butters is also a trained bird-dog and prolific escape artist. Shortly after being put into his kennel, Butters has been found by kennel workers sitting atop the 6-foot kennel structure with no evidence of how he managed to get there in the first place. He is a loving family member who is often the subject of funny home videos. His life is all about “ball’ and dreaming upside down on the couch.
