Where are you located? I am in central Oklahoma. We live on a on a small 35-acre ranch with quarter horses and Bernese, it's my little slice of heaven. When purchasing a puppy, I have several delivery options available, I don't even mind driving 3 or 4 hours in any direction to help bring your baby home.
Where were you born? In Nicoma Park, a rural country town in Oklahoma. We raised beef and dairy cattle, dabbled some in horses and I always had a dog with me. All my life I have ALWAYS had a dog.
When did you fall in love with the Bernese breed? Let’s see... my first encounter with the breed was when my kids where still little, we took them to Robbers Cave State Park to hike.... we went around a bend and low and behold I saw the most beautiful dog I had ever seen. I had the same reaction as most people do when they meet a Bernese in person for the first time... I dropped to one knee and instantly wrapped my arms around it! The rest is history.
When did you decide you wanted to raise BMD's? Well, honestly, it was a very easy decision. I worked as a practice manager at a veterinarian clinic at that time. I had already received Dyna my first BMD as a surprise Christmas present from my husband and really wanted another. I searched high and low for a quality male I could purchase that would meet my requirements (mainly price!!) This was like 2000ish so no internet, only newspaper adds. No genetic testing. To make matters worse I was not in the "popular group of Bernese owners" I did not hobb nobb with show people and back then they ALL made me feel not worthy of being Bernese owner. Working at our local veterinarian clinic it was an easy decision to become a breeder. I wanted to share this breed with the world. I wanted every family with children to be able to own one. I knew how much I loved this breed, and they would have the very best in veterinary care... so I set out to become what I am today.
What sets you apart from other breeders? First of all, I am NICE and super easy to work with. Years of experience, you call anytime. I will NEVER make you feel unworthy of owning a Berner. I am upfront and honest to a fault. I believe everyone should have the opportunity to own the dog of their dreams! I am not a kennel, meaning I do NOT house any of my dogs outside in a building. All 7 of my BMD's live inside with us. I welcome people into my home to meet my dogs and or visit their puppies. Everyone should know where their puppies come from! I often Facetime with people to give them a walkthrough of my home and puppy area. I will always buy back ANY of my puppies/dogs no judgement or questions asked.
All of my dogs are genetic tested and clear of any inherited diseases found in Bernese. (DM, SODB1, SODB2, VWH, HUU) Mostly what I am proud of is the longevity in the blood line that I continue to breed. My beautiful Dyna saw 12 years and 4 months and Rider saw 12 years and 5 days. Also, Lilly was 11 years and 3 months when she passed. Hannah is 12 years old; I also have her granddaughter 2-year-old Dottie. I also have 2 puppies born in May 2023, Annie and Morgan. They are from my last litters both from Sierra and Arie who are now spayed and enjoying life here on the ranch and of course who can forget handsome Murphy!
