Animals have always
played a big part in my life; for as long as I can remember,
I've always loved animals, both mythical and 'real.'
Dogs have always had the most prominent place in my heart and home,
although I've also had the priviledge of being owned by cats,
rats, birds, horses, and a pygmy goat --
just to name a few!
was 'born' in the mid-80's. Originally called Sterling
Shelties, we were a small hobby kennel. The
official name change came
about once I learned there was another, older kennel of the
same name, and following my divorce. Although I
am no longer an active breeder or handler -- and I do
miss both greatly -- I still hold strongly to the ethics
behind my kennel breeding program. Please feel free to

tribute to my beloved,

Sometime in the
future, I hope to place photo's of some of the other important
animals in my life. Decker,

#98, our first beef cow! There are stories behind
each animal, changes they made to our lives by being a part
of our family . . . however, the photo's will (unfortunately)
have to wait for awhile, due to a fire in July 1999, I
lost everything I owned. Pictures, placement ribbons, prizes won - not to mention baby pictures, every photo album I had, books, clothes - like I said, I lost everything. My daughter is looking through her
albums, for suitable photo's to use, and my daughter-in-law is trying to repair some she did find.
As I am most interested
in and fond of, the dogs in the Herding Group, you will find many
of the herding breeds here, listed under "Dog Info Links,"
in the left side menu, while cats, horses, and various wild animals
are listed under "Critter Links" on the left side menu.
Those dogs classified in other AKC Groups, will have their grouping
noted. My personal pages have information and links on my favorite
breed, the Shetland Sheepdog, as well as the short history of my kennel,
Lynstorm Shelties. Please feel free to browse through out all of my
"critters" pages. I hope you learn, but most importantly, enjoy!
