Now, for a little about us…...
I fell in love with the Rottweiler so
many years ago, the beautiful structure, ominous strength, and that kind loving
face. In my opinion, there is nothing more stunning than a well-bred, well
built, muscular Rottweiler with character and temperament to die for. It took me
a long time before I actually bought my first one, a few years of research on
the breed characteristics, health issues and different types being bred by the
many qualified breeders out there. Finally 9 months and 10 days after Danny and
I were married, Neil and Loraine Jesse of Rothburg Rottweilers handed us our
bundle of joy and my SOUL DOG, Caemon.
Our lives have changed so much since
Caemon arrived. He has introduced me to the world of dog sport, and dog shows.
We show in conformation, trial in obedience, have tried flyball, (he was so fast
we had to quit. When a 115lb rottie is beating the Border Collies down the
line…..). We compete in drafting, carting, tracking, obedience, conformation,
agility and in 2004 will be going after the illustrious Sch I title. More about
Caemon on his page.
We belong to the Canadian Kennel Club and
the Rottweiler Club of Canada as well as the American Rottweiler Club. We are
Code of Ethics breeders and will only breed dogs that are sound and healthy. Our
dogs are hip scored with the British Veterinary Association and the Orthopedic
Foundation for Animals and are tested for heart and eye diseases, and hip and
elbow dysplasia. Our dogs will only be bred to other dogs and bitches of merit
that have also passed all of these tests, and have attained at least a
Our second Rottie joined our family after
a long year of research and searching. I finally found the perfect woman who
breeds magnificent dogs, and is ethical beyond ethical. Linda Draper of Eternal
Moon Kennel in Virginia Beach, Virginia. You have never seen dogs move until you
see her Java!! Her dogs are treated as family members, trained in obedience,
conformation, drafting, weight pulling and racing golf carts! Her dogs are also
blood donors, and have the to die for temperaments that I was looking for.
So….after many a conversation, many emails, begging, pleading, deal making and
groveling, Kenya came into our lives.
She is everything I wanted and more.
Tons of substance, tons of bone, great markings, impeccable movement and
unbelievable drive!! Made to order. I don’t know how she did it, but everything
I wanted came to us in a 14lb, 8 week old, black and tan package. She makes us
laugh everyday with her silly antics and courageous heart. There is nothing this
little bombshell won’t try and excel at. At 7months old she became a Canadian
Champion!! More about Kenya on her page.

As far as we are concerned, no matter how
much we have learned, there are still libraries of information to take in. We
look to other knowledgeable breeders and fanciers to help us with questions and
concerns. I have met so many wonderful people who have unselfishly helped me out
in these first years. Kim Zippel, Pauline Baldwin, Loraine Jesse, Larry Clark, Donna Slownoski, Tammy Hill, Linda Draper, Ann Felske-Jackman and
Debbie Cornell-Charneski to name a few, but believe me there are so many more.
There are so many breeders out there that I admire, breeders who know the
histories of lines, health issues, and what dogs produce what characteristics.
Why wouldn’t we go to them with questions? Isn’t that the point, or at least it
should be. Breeders helping breeders to better this magnificent breed, the
