About Us

The whole time I was growing up, my mother told me that when I had my own place I could have as many dogs as I wanted, but not in her house. Well, the first thing that I did when I graduated from college in 1968 was buy a dog, a Dalmatian. He was my constant companion, and I loved him so. It was back in the days when you could take a dog everywhere...and I did!

Obedience classes led to trial competition and eventually a Utility Dog title. A compliment on his conformation led to the breed ring and an owner-handled champion. Puppies. More titles. High in Trials. A win at Westminster. Lots of friends all over the country.

Then, I had always wanted to have a West Highland White Terrier. My first, Frasher, was a gift from my husband - and a champion-to-be. Learning about grooming. Puppies. Winning from the Bred-by Exhibitor class competition. Best of Breed wins. Best in Show. Working and performance titles in Agility, Rally and Earth dog.

Now, we have a pack of Westies – that have recently been joined by some Norwich Terriers.

In 2004, the American Kennel Club presented me with a bronze medallion honoring my 25 years of judging for them. I am licensed by the American Kennel Club as an obedience trial judge able to judge all classes. Also, the American Kennel Club has approved me to judge Westies and Dalmatians and recently granted me a provisional license for Bulldogs and Boston Terriers, all-breed Junior Showmanship, Rally and registered my kennel name, MARDOT.

Helping people and their pets is a joy. Breeding outstanding, typey, healthy companion dogs with a stable temperament is a passion.
