My journey of mastiffs began in 1997 after I made a call to Barbara house with Brite Star mastiffs. Later that year my foundation bitch arrived, Ch/INT Brite Star’s Gwenevere of Addision. Addie showed me what a fun-breed mastiffs were and began the line Thousand Oaks for me. There have been so many wonderful dogs that I’ve shared my life with. I will always be so grateful to all of the mastiff people who I’ve met through the years and dogs that have allowed me to grow my breeding program. I look forward to my next litter, which will be the 8th generation of Thousand Oaks Mastiffs.
I have been a founding member of the Guadalupe Valley Dog Fanciers, holding the positions of president, secretary, board member and show chairman. In 2003 I had a dream to get mastiff fanciers together in Texas. At that moment the Lone Star Mastiff Fanciers was formed. We have held 2 nationals, countless regionals, and most recently hosted our A match. It’s been a very long road for our club, and I can’t thank everyone enough for the continued support.
My future goals include getting approved to judge mastiffs/pointers in 2022. I am beyond honored to have this opportunity to judge futurity/maturity at this year’s national.
I urge everyone to please get involved in their local kennel clubs and help support the sport that we all love so much!
Good luck at mastiff nationals to everyone!
