This is a picture of "Manny" at three months old

I graduated from Texas A & M College of Veterinary Medicine in 1985
and have worked with small animals and horses since then. I operate
a house call practice, perform relief work at a local clinic, and
work at the Harrison County Animal Shelter. My husband was in the Air
Force and as we were stationed all around the world, I accumulated
licenses in seven different States and worked in England and Korea.
I am an active member in State and National veterinary medical
associations, a member of the Society of Theriogenlogy, and a member
of the Academy of Excellence. I am active in the American Brittany
Club and volunteer as their show veterinarian at the Nationals in
Arkansas every November. I became a licensed Field Trial Judge in
My love is my show/field dogs. I first became interested in showing
dogs in 1978 and acquired an English Setter which we showed to his
Championship in 1982. I showed at Cruft’s in England in 1990 and
1991. I switched to Brittanys in 1998 because I found their
temperament to be more stable and more family oriented. We are now
active in both the show ring and at the field trials as our focus
has become oriented toward dual dogs. A Dual Champion has earned a
championship in both the show ring and at field trials. Our goal is
to improve the breed and to have them do what they were originally
bred to do: be a family dog and hunting companion.
