to Evensong Pomeranians!.
My husband and I live in St. Helens, Oregon, amidst the beauty of the Pacific
Northwest. I'm a retired
Kevin owns a printing and supply business. On weekends you can
usually find us at a dog show or just hanging out on our ten acres. We have four children, Heather, Jenna, Daniel, and
Jeff, plus several beautiful Pomeranians. We also have five wonderful
grandchildren, Zachary, Althea, Christian, Brexten, and Bailey.
Pomeranians have been a part of our
lives for the past fourteen years. Our love for this breed started with one dog,
a black and tan female, named Baby. Even though she weighs 15 pounds and
isn't registered, her loyalty and love have given her a
permanent place in our home and lives.
The decision to
head to the show ring came about when we purchased a blue and tan female
from a breeder in Portland. She did well in her first competition as a
young puppy, but she failed to produce a proper coat. She also had some
minor faults that didn't make her an "ideal" candidate for the ring.
Because we were new to the Pom breed, we didn't completely understand her
faults. Poms come in many different varieties, including size, body types,
head types, colors, etc., and it took time to learn what type was preferred for
We've learned a great
deal about the breed, though, since we started showing, and we are still learning.
Studying the standard, reading pedigrees, listening and
talking to other show breeders, attending seminars, and reading articles and books have helped us
gain a lot of much needed knowledge about the breed. This knowledge has
helped us become competitive exhibitors in the ring, with our first champion
finishing as the No. 6 Pomeranian in the country in 2005.
Our ultimate goal
in breeding for the show ring is to achieve the standard of the "ideal"
Pomeranian as set
forth by the American Pomeranian
Club and the American Kennel Club. We would like to produce Pomeranians that are structurally
sound with great movement, heavy double coats, pretty faces, and great
temperaments. We finished our first champion in 2004, and we started our
own bred-by's in 2005. Our first home-bred champion finished in June
of 2006 from the bred-by classes. He also became our first bred-by multi group placer
and best in specialty winner.
At this time we only breed two to
four litters a year and are not into breeding for monetary rewards. Our
motto is "quality, not quantity." We will, however, occasionally have an available
puppy or adult for sale. These will generally be the Poms that we feel do
not meet the goal we are trying to achieve for our program, but it does not mean that they are
not of outstanding quality. Adults are generally those that are being
retired and who are looking for more interaction then we can give them. Please visit our available pages for puppies
and or adults.
I, Teresa, am a
member of the American
Pomeranian Club. I also volunteer on a couple of committees, the APC
Legislative Committee and the APC Breed Advisory Committee.
On a final
note, our Pomeranians are some of the most "spoiled" and well-loved dogs in the
area! This will never change, no matter what becomes of our endeavor.
They are well socialized, they travel with us to shows, etc., go to work with
Kevin as weather permits, and sleep with us. Well, they take turns
sleeping with us. :)
