I have loved dogs all my life, ever since I used to work with the border collies and Shire horses on the farm down the road when I was at school. Aged 14, I got my first dog – a black miniature poodle called Susie Wong. Since then, I’ve owned dogs all my life, including miniature poodles and shih tzu, and have over 30 years’ experience of caring for and breeding dogs, having cared for more than 30 dogs in total over the years, and countless gorgeous little bundles of fluff.

Nowadays, I no longer breed puppies and live with my beautiful, black shih tzu called Ouzo – yes, she’s named after the Greek alcoholic drink!
