I started breeding in 2006 when I became an empty nester. I thought I would have a litter with my yellow lab, Amber and a friend’s black and white parti standard poodle, Toz to fill my extra time. Little did I know after retiring from 30 years in advertising and marketing I would now find my perfect job.
Diane joined us as a guardian family for Piper. After Piper’s first litter that Melissa raised, Diane said “I can do that”. Diane was a volunteer for the Smithtown Guide Dog Foundation for many years as a puppy raiser. This along with being a registered nurse makes her perfect for this roll of puppy raiser.
