From 2000 to 2003 I owned a cat and dog gift retail store called E. Claire and Company in West Des Moines, IA.  Customers were encouraged to bring their companion animals to the store.  We took hundreds of pictures over the 4 years we were in business.  A copy of the picture would be displayed in the store and the other sent to the owner with a handwritten note.  The picture on the left is one of my favorite Rottweilers, Ruby.  On the right is the first French Bulldog, Rocky, that I ever got the pleasure to personally meet prior to owning my own Frenchies.

From my early childhood, I knew that I was truly endeared to animals.  My intensity for caring for and loving animals grew from my early childhood days to my adulthood.  I have always felt a passion for caring for animals and protecting them.  Today that passion and intensity continues.  In 1988, my husband David and our two young children, Nick and Eric, acquired our first companion dog, a Miniature Schnauzer, Princess.  Unknowingly, we purchased Princess directly from a commercial kennel.  We were fortunate in that Princess was a healthy puppy.  Shortly after our exposure to this commercial kennel we became involved in the local animal shelter, the Animal Rescue League of Des Moines, Iowa.  During the next several years we rescued our second Miniature Schnauzer, Cassie Lou and a Boston Terrier, Mimi Roberta.  Soon to follow was our second Boston Terrier, Claire, who we adopted directly from the shelter.

Most “normal” people would think that 4 dogs would be enough, but in 2001 we were blessed to have the opportunity to purchase our first French Bulldog, Jack.  One of the requests from his breeder, Marilyn Burdick, Pudgybull, was that we “show” Jack in the conformation ring.   Although we had never had a show dog we were willing to try and such is the beginning of a wonderful story and journey.  Since Jack we have added other French Bulldogs to our family.  Each one has become a beloved member of our family.
