|We live in the high desert town of Redmond in Central Oregon.
I've raised and shown Cocker Spaniels since 1980,
and over the years have bred quite a few cocker Champions,
shown and finished several bred by others,
plus finished and bred several wonderful little Brussels Griffons.
Sherwood Oregon was my home town, then I moved to Portland
after marrying my High School sweetheart Michael Cook.
We were married for 24 years and had 2 sons, Devin and Brandon,
and 5 Grandchildren.
Mike passed away in 1998 and our son Devin also passed in 2004.
Rick's home town was Corvallis and he attended College in Bend
where he came to love this area,
so this is where we have retired.
He has always had a deep love for animals.
We met at work years ago and became friends, so it just seemed
natural to continue our friendship through marriage,
after we both had major life changes.
Rick has 3 brothers and 1 sister,
with family all around Oregon and throughout several Countries.
It has been a joy to have owned, handled, and or bred these
