"Lambluv" is the word of endearment given to me by my husband when we first met. If you believe in predestination, my story is a good example.

Lambluv has been the recipient of the Pedigree Award (No. 1 OES Breed Points) for eleven out of the 13 years it has been awarded. Lambluv has had the No. 1 OES for 15 years. Lambluv has produced, shown, or owned 13 Best In Show Champions, including dogs around the world with over 30 champions.

I grew up dancing my way through life. I received my BS in Physical Education and danced on stage in musical comedies. I taught high school students and started my own dance studio teaching ballet, jazz and tap.

One Christmas I believed I was receiving a pair of diamond earrings from my husband; instead he flew to New York and bought an OES puppy as a surprise. What a surprise!! Not only was this the beginning of my relationship with the OES and dog shows, but it would have been a lot less expensive to have given me the earrings. Neither he nor I have ever regretted the "Surprise."

After my first OES, Bridgette, passed away, I would teach my ballet class in tears; after four days, we located an OES puppy in Maryland from Bahlambs Kennel and the rest is history. I bought my first dogs from this kennel and began my own breeding program. My main objective has always been not to breed puppies for sale, but to breed selectively for the betterment of the OES breed and to produce excellent quality, both mentally and physically, in the dogs I choose to compete in conformation events in the United States and around the world. To me, being in the show ring is like being on stage.

My fist three show dogs were Ch. Bahlamb's Beaming Beauty, Ch. Bahlamb's Balletomane and Ch. Bahlamb's Beach Boy. Beach Boy qualified as a top producer in 1983 and 1984 producing 13 Champions, one being Ch. Bellefarm Boy O Boy at Lambluv. I next acquired Ch. Rholenwood's Taylor Maid. Taylor produced four Champions; Ch. Lambluv's Moptop Show Stopper, Ch. Lambluv's Winning Maid Easy, Ch. Lambluv's Moptop Luvem 'N Leavem, and Ch. Moptop Lambluv's Master Plan. Boy sired Ch. Noblee's Necessarily Nice, who was the dam of Ch. Lambluv's Dymonblu Nauty N' Nice, who was the dam of Ch. Lambluv's Desert Dancer (Yoshi). Yoshi has produced over 17 Champions to date including CH. Tumbleweed Lambluv Gala Affair is Number 1 OES in Canada with 15 Best in Shows and Ch. Lambluv Gambolon Diamond Diva who is now retired. Diva has produced American Champions; Ch. Lambluv Last Tango in B.A.(Lover) who is the number 1 OES all breed in the US, Ch. Lambluv's Lambeth Walk, who is a new mother, and Can. Ch. Lambluv's Valubal Bolero, out of her first litter in 1997. Bolero is a Group and 5 time BIS winner and is currently the #8 herding dog.

Diva has produced he following Champions out of her second litter in July 2001: Ch. Lambluv's Valentino, "Chad"; Ch. Lambluv's De La Reuta "Mikey"; & Am/Can Ch. Lambluv's Armani.

Ch. Lamluv Lambeth Walk (Princess) has produced group placing champions - Ch. Lambluv's Stake on Trent, Ch. Lambluv's Westminster Abbey, Ch. Lambluv's Desdemona (No. 1 OES 2004 and No. 7 Herding Dog and OESCA Top Twenty winner, Group 1 at Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show 2005), Ch. Lambluv's As Ewe Like It, Ch. Lambluv's Midsomer Night Dream & Ch. Lambbluv's What's In A Name.

Lambluv is also proud to have other Champion offspring being show in Canada, Austria (Ch. Lambluv's Sound of Music received a BIS at one year of age); and Argentina (Ch. Lambluv's Premier Performance and Ch. Little John's D'artagnon.)
