Dreams in Montana!
The move here has brought new challenges and different opportunities. Having
lived on the east coast all my life enjoying all the short commutes to the
numerous shopping choices and the many dog shows with in hour or two what a
difference here. Travel is many miles and hours, with spectacular views and
Aside from that I know longer have the large kennel facilities I had back in
Pennsylvania which allowed me to pursue my love of breeding Shetland
Sheepdogs. But with that said it has not dampened in the least my enjoyment
of painting all breeds of dogs.
Restarting the windsock business has been a challenge. Mostly, to have the
dog fanciers know I'm very available to fill your product requests. In the
next months I wish to work hard on engaging the show and pet fancy alike in
the enjoyment of my hand painted windsocks, bags, jackets, vests, etc.

will work with you on other avenues as well. Weddings, Business, New Baby
Socks, Golf projects, Horses, Clamber of Commerce projects, and fund raising
ideas as well.
On a personal side---- My last sheltie died on 9/8/08 at 14+ ending a life
long commitment to the breed. There are no words to express that loss and a

have never been able to have the strength to have made this journey. The
many years of meeting all of you in the dog fancy with all the many other
breeds that I have grown to love and know as well. You to have graced me
with your knowledge and most of all your friendships. Thank You.
I would love hearing from all of you.
Now, divorced (after 41 years) this has brought a new found freedom, and a
chance to experience my life long dreams.

Dealer and taking related online credits. He is looking to the future, a
