Passion and Life Collide

Peeps since you are reading this blog...you all know I love my four paw pals.  Every one of them!  They have definitely become my hobby and passion (and I suppose some could say may "sickness.")

Kind of like the show "Hoarders" it's somewhat of a craziness that somehow a house just keeps collecting dogs. Funny how that works. :0)

Being a breeder and a dog enthusiast in performance venues, I am always evaluating the joys of dog sports, breeding, conformation and just loving my pets.  But how does one do that?  I do live in the city and have ordinances to follow.  I never want to build a kennel to house my dogs!  That's just now me...okay for some and I completely understand it, but not me.  So again, how does one continue to follow a passion with such limitations.  LOL, and not even the limitations placed on me by the city but my family FOR SURE places some limits on what is acceptable and what is just plain craziness. Hahaha...good thing there are checks and balances.

So here comes the collision....when is it appropriate to rehome a dog where they can get the utmost attention and the full fruits of life, even when I love them to death and it makes me cry every time I think of it?  Hmmm, those are the tough choices.  So it's with a happy heart and a very heavy heart that I am sometimes faced with this dilemma to consider.   Dang, this can just make me blubber away.  (insert break in writing to have a good cry.)  This breeding stuff is not easy!  But first and foremost, each and every four paw friend needs the best home possible!!

And with all that said...I just must move on to some lighter ramblings.  Maybe, more like bullies in the halloween parade!  :))  Hope you enjoy some of my favs from the St. Paul Minneapolis Bulldog Club's Halloween Parade.  You can see more on it's FACEBOOK page...be sure to check it out.


  1. Sounds like a dilemma alright! Sometimes the best thing to do is the hardest!
