IW RW LA SGC Whozz The Boss of Kibbykat
Everyone should have a personal passion in their life and somehow, I managed to have several! Music has always been very important to me and in 1978, I joined Sweet Adelines International and started a life long love affair with 4 part harmony barbershop style. Forty plus years later I am still in love! I've always had a passion for animals, in 1979 I saw my first Himalayan and that started my love for showing cats. I bred and exhibited Persian, Himalayan, Siamese, Oriental Shorthair, and Bengal cats for 35 years and I was an approved allbreed judge for TICA, The International Cat Association, for 22 years.
Sometimes life takes unexpected turns...in 2010 I found myself at one of those crossroads and completely smitten with a curly white dog named Zeke...and as they say the rest is history. I decided that Zeke needed a "friend" and started looking for another Bichon. If I was going to get another dog, why not get a show dog...it seemed like a natural progression, right?
That decision opened up a whole new world. I got my first show dog, AM/CN CH Legend's Charlie's Angel, aka "Charlotte" from Erayna Beckman, Legend Bichons. There was and still is so much to learn and Erayna has been a wonderful mentor and cherished friend.
I am an AKC Breeder of Merit and a member of The Bichon Frise Club of America where I am proud to serve on the Board of Directors. Although still relatively new to the dog world, my extensive background in cats has given me a head start into my new passion. I am a hobby breeder and occasionally have puppies. I work to produce puppies that meet the AKC breed standard for the Bichon Frise. I breed for health, temperament and type. All of my puppies are born and raised in my home. I strive to provide my puppies with a nurturing environment, socialization, and intellectual stimulation. My dogs have consistently performed well in the conformation ring and as devoted companions.
Please explore my website, I welcome your inquiries and comments. Lastly, no matter what breed (dog or cat) you are looking for, don't be in a hurry. Do your research and buy from a breeder that is committed to health screening and is active in the fancy.
