About us:

    I have had a love for dogs since I was small, my Uncle was a vet and I would go to work with him, whether it was on farm calls or on small animals in the clinic.  I learned a lot from him about taking care of dogs.  We are a family owned kennel in the heart of the Ozarks.  We are located in Southwest Missouri on beautiful Table Rock Lake.  My husband and I both take care of the kennel, we also have a large farm where we raise beef cattle, we also have horses & sheep.  We have been raising dogs for 17 years.  We started with Border Collies because we needed help on the farm.  We became a Blue Ribbon Kennel in December 2005.  We are one of the few kennels in Missouri who have qualified to become one.  We have two beautiful children who are both married with wonderful spouses, and two very special Grandsons and a beautiful Granddaughter born Dec 2011.

In May 2008 I started showing Jake, my Boston Terrier. He is now a CH

I have been doing all required health testing for my dogs

Boston Terrier - CERF, BAER, JVC, OFA Patella and Cardiac

Cairn Terrier - Liver bile acid, CERF, OFA Patella and Cardiac and will be doing the GCLs

Border Collie - CERF, BAER, OFA Patella and Cardiac, TNS, CEA/CH, CL


NEWS FLASH: Stoneridge Wrangler Sunshine on a Cloudy Day aka Skye is now a Champion, she finished her CH in Sedalia, MO on July 8, 2012 under Judge James E. Frederiksen. Her brother Dooley is living out in Idaho with Ronna Stewart and is a CH. He has both his majors. Their Sire/Brand and Dooley and a 1/2 sister Roxie are featured in the Herding Dog digest. I have finished several dogs since this.
