OUR FARM, VIEWS, ANIMALS, AND GUESTBOOK

MyFrontYard.jpg

Here you can see the view from our front door. Our home is located at the top of Cherokee Hill, about 1010 feet above sea level. In the distance, about 5 miles, you can see Hogback Mountain, and Tryon Peak, which rise to about 3600 feet. The season is summer, and the view is green, both from our Pines and many Hardwoods.

We have been breeding the Chinese Shar-Pei for over 25 years. We obtained some of the first breeding stock imported from China, and participated in the rescue of the breed, helping to rebuild the Shar-Pei population from near extinction. The challenges were many, having to deal with a limited gene pool. Today, our Shar-Pei enjoy long healthy lives, some living as long as 15 years. We are proud of our accomplishments in breeding, including several Best of Breed awards for the bloodlines we developed, at the Westminster Kennel Club Show, held in Madision Square Garden, in NYC.

Here you see Linda, holding one of our wrinkled pups. The breed is certainly distinguishable by it's loose and wrinkled skin, a dog in need of a good tailor perhaps. The appearance of the Shar-Pei is a kind of comical look, and you never get tired of viewing these interesting animals. Our pups maintain their wrinkled looks as they mature into adult dogs.

Our interests in dogs are varied also. Here you see Mike, with one of our Labrador Retrievers, Bo-Bo, a large English bred, Yellow Lab. Look carefully behind Mike, you will see Chloe, our Basset Hound. We also have a Black Labrador, Beauty, and our older "Beagador" Rover, with whom we enjoy many interesting walks about the farm, chasing Rabbits.

Our farm is home to our own horses, as well as to many boarders. Here are Scout, the Paint, and Zaggy, a T/B, lounging around the barn. We currently have 18 horses boarded, with room for several more.

Here is a view of two eight week old Chinese Shar-Pei pups.

All of our pups are raised in professional, clean, and well cared for kennels. They are always kept with their parents until they are 8 weeks of age, while being constantly socialized with people. Our pups are always well adjusted, house trained, and well socialized to meet the challenges of the outside world. Their temperments are superb.

Here is Wrinky, six generations of selective breeding. Wrinky is one of our prize studs, and has sired some beautiful and typey puppies, with excellent temperments. Our bloodlines have now taken Best of Breed at the Westminster Kennel Club show in Madison Square Garden, three times, including this year.

Here's Linda with Mindy, one of our AKC Champion Dogs.

Daily exercise for the dogs is important. Here Linda takes Bo, Rover, and if you look closely, an eight week puppy for a walk on a beautiful winter's day.
