I would like to thank my dear friend Peggy Lowe who has been a constant source of support, encouragement, inspiration to me over the years. In addition to that Peggy has contributed many wonderful additions to our doggie home over the years. I'd like to thank her for myself and for all the doggies who benefit from all her labors of love.
Extra Special Thanks go to my precious friend Vivian Wood who sold me my first Champion Lainee Xtra Perpetual Motion "Peppi", almost 30 years ago. Peppi became one of our important foundations. Vivian has been a wonderful friend, inspiration, role model as well as dependable source of support and encouragement to me over the years.
The late Kitty Strom of Din Ho fame was a remarkable lady, dear friend and influence. Her Champion Winward's Free Wheeling ("Freddie the Freeloader") and his daughter
Din Ho Rosie Glow both lived many years in our home until their deaths due to old age. They still live on through the Chinai dogs today.
Thanks to Joan Dankers for her "Painter", Champion Artisan's Leonardo Da Vinci, whose outstanding temperament, beautiful eyes and structural soundness added so much to our line. Joan's beautiful artwork has also been a source of enjoyment in our home for many years.
Our home is blessed and graced by the talents and love of all these very precious friends.
I'd like to specially thank my wonderful dog sitters who helped me care for my dogs over all these years.
They all became person friends and almost all had a Chinai dog or two of their own before it was all said and done.
Except for Joan she had 4!
Thanks to all of you my wonderful dog sitters, show helpers and friends:
You're all champions in my book!
Joan Mc Vean
The late Clare Gildow and Pearl Gildow
(They lived out here and helped me so much for 3 years!)
Thank you to my dear friend and veterinarian Dr. RJ Kelly who gave me very sound advice over many years.
To all the wonderful owners of our fuzzy kids; to our dog sitters and friends; thank you all for all your love and devotion to the dogs and to this wonderful breed.
Thanks to all of the groomers, veterinarians and rescue people for the work they do on a daily basis.
These folks keep our breed looking good, staying well, living longer and out of harm's way.
Congratulations and thanks to all the Chinai therapy dogs and their trainers.
Thank you all and may God Bless you, ALL!!.
