Dogs from San Jose
 
  1. My life is likely to last 10 to 15 years. Any separation from you will be very painful.
  2. Give me time to understand what you want of me.
  3. Place your trust in me - it is crucial for my well-being.
  4. Don't be angry with me for long, and don't lock me up as punishment. You have your work, your friends, your entertainment. I HAVE ONLY YOU.
  5. Talk to me, Even if I don't understand your words, I understand your voice when it's speaking to me.
  6. Be aware that however you treat me, I'll NEVER forget it.
  7. Before you hit me, remember that I have teeth that could easily crush the bones in your hand, but I choose not to bite you.
  8. Before you scold me for being lazy or uncooperative, ask yourself if something might be bothering me. Perhaps I'm not getting the right food, I've been out in the sun too long, or my heart may be getting old and weak.
  9. Take care of me when I get old. You, too, will grow old.
  10. Go with me on difficult journeys. Never say, "I can't bear to watch it" or, "Let it happen in my absence." Everything is easier for me if you are there. Remember, I love you.

    My name is Jene and my companions own me. With a varied background; I have been involved with their breed not long enough, but I'm here to stay. That is because I consider myself an advocate for these breeds of dogs. I am an advocate for common sense dog training and not the latest fad that appears on different breeding plans. I will improve my breed the way I know and through the ways I have learned. I can't stand anyone with a known-it-all attitude who believes that they are the pinnacle of the breeds they own and look down their collective noses at the rest of the dog world. I may have to acknowledge the importance of pedigrees but the decision to breed a dog extends beyond their bloodlines. I am not one of those self-gratifying-band-wagons of  "I'm a responsible breeder”, however, I'm also always willing to share my experiences - in the hopes that I may be of any help to others & avoid some of the mistakes I made along the way.
