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.

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
