    I started working with dogs in 1954 as a dog bather at a French Poodle Shop in Houston, Texas.  I attended my first dog show in 1955 and then decided I wanted to show dogs.

    I became an All-Breed licensed handler in 1968.  I showed dogs professionally for some 33 years, then, I retired, and became a judge.  During that time, I bred Poodles, Cocker Spaniels, Italian Greyhounds, Maltese, Yorkshire Terriers, Salukis, and Afghan Hounds.  I never bred more than 4 litters of any of one breed.  As a handler I helped many of my clients with their breeding programs, including choosing studs, and picking puppies.

    I started judging in 1990, with the Hound Group.  Since that time I have added the Sporting Group, Toy Group, and Non-Sporting Group.  I judge 4 Groups: Best in Show, Junior Showmanship, and Miscellaneous.  I have judged in Australia, Canada, Finland, Indonesia, Japan, New Zealand, Sweden, Taiwan, and Thailand.  As of now, I judge between 60 and 70 shows a year.     Thank you for inviting me to judge your show.
