Welcome to Our Happy Tale!
I (Laura) have been raising dogs since high school. I love researching about all the different breeds. The different temperaments, conformations, histories, and health issues of each breed intrigues me. I love going to the big dog shows and getting to see all the different breeds.
We live on a farm in NW Kansas. My husband farms and ranches. I worked as a nurse before deciding to stay at home and homeschool our 5 children.
Right now we own two Rough Collies, Joan and Willow (pictures of Willow to come). They are very much a part of our family and have been an excellent choice for our family with young children. They have free-run of our farm and keep tabs on what all the children and farm animals are doing (chickens, cats, goats, and cattle). Previously, we raised Yorkshire Terriers (as you will notice looking at the rest of our site) for a few years and decided they were not a good fit for our family at this time in our life. I do love the Yorkies but their small size made it stressful for both me and them with our young children.
We sell our puppies directly to their new homes. We want to know where our puppies are going...from our family to yours. We do not go through pet stores or brokers.
We hope so much that you enjoy this site. If you have any questions please feel free to click on the Contact Information link and call or send me an e-mail. I would love to talk to you about the breed and hopefully help you find the perfect fit for your family!
