"We Hunt Our Show Dogs"

Ch Cross Creek's Irish Manlicher

This is a picture of "Manny" at three months old retrieving a quail to hand at the Hoffman Field Trial in Hoffman, NC.

About Me: 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 2014.

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.
