I started breeding dachshunds in the mid-90's. The excitement, the possibilities of colors, the cute little puppy faces, and the relationships I felt with my dogs immediately got me addicted. I stopped breeding for about six years when I was required to commute and travel for work. Thankfully those days are gone and I am so fortunate to be back doing what I LOVE!!
I was born and raised in the small town I live in. I am #9 of 12 children. I have always had animals in my life and cannot imagine my life without them. Dearest to my heart are my dachshunds. I currently love, adore, and share residence with 15 dachshunds of all shapes and sizes. I also have a domestic cat, fish, and an honeybees. Oh and I almost forgot my over 100 chickens that are also like my children except I do keep them outside!
I do work full-time for the Department of Veteran Affairs as a data analyst and very fortunate to have such a great job that provides me the opportunity to work from home. BTW this just adds to my dogs all being spoiled rotten.
