I finally had my first OES that I had waited for, for so long! Her name was SnowDowne Old Fashioned Girl,
but we just called her Molly. Our son Andrew says “Dad, you knew about mom’s love affair with OES and you still married her?” Yes, it is true. Not only do I love OES, but I have had a passion for all animals as long as I can remember. I have had nearly every kind of pet you can imagine - just ask Bob!
I groomed and handled Molly to her championship in 1980. It has been a love affair ever since. I showed several dogs under our old kennel prefix “Barclay” but at the start of 2006, I decided to join Colleen at SnowDowne.
Dog Club Affiliations:
I was a member of the Old English Sheepdog Club of Greater Seattle since 1979.
I have served as Secretary and President. I also served as the Editor of the Raggedy Ramblings, OESCGS’ magazine from 2005 to 2010.
I am a long time member of the Old English Sheepdog Club of America (1981). I was awarded 2006 OESCA Member of the Year, which was a huge honor for me. This was due to the work I did as the Editor of OESCA’s 2002-2005 Yearbook. I also served as the Chair of OESCA’s Health & Research Committee for over 8 years.
I previously have been a member of the all breed club Puyallup Valley Dog Fanciers, although I am no longer a member. I have decided to concentrate on our local and national breed clubs instead. When I was a member of PVDF, I served as Secretary and also as a Board Member.
