Someone once said, "The time you spend with a dog is added to your life".  Well then. I should live to be very old indeed!

For me there is a spiritual connection that occurs when a baby puppy falls into my hands and takes its first few breaths.  Together, we begin a new relationship full of promise and all things wonderful.  As my puppy grows and matures and meets the physical benchmarks for my breed, I fill my imagination with dreams of amazing accomplishments.

But I always awaken from my little moments of reverie to resume my joyful duty; to love and care for my little charges, to nourish their bodies and to feed their souls.  I believe that if I nurture them well, the ribbons and accolades will find their way here without too much effort and my  dogs will be too busy having fun to notice them at all !

My dogs are my passion and I wouldn't have it any other way.

Thank you Royal Canin for the part that you play.

I am writing this to let you know why I think Royal Canin should send, not myself to France, but should send my dear friend Diane Herns of Karmadi English Springer Spaniels to France.


I am a Newfoundland dog breeder, and have been using Royal Canin dog food since 2007, after being introduced to the food by Diane Herns.  I am very pleased to say that am quite impressed with the quality and assortment of foods available from Royal Canin. I appreciate the different foods for different stages of growth; from the puppy formula, starter, right up to the aging care brands. I am also impressed with the breed specific foods.  Puppy packs are a fabulous addition to the ‘puppy care’ kits that new pup owners go home with.


I first tried Royal Canin dog food at the suggestion of my dear friend, Diane Herns of Karmadi English Springer Spaniels.  She had told me how impressed she was with the quality of food.  She wanted to conclusively decide if it was as good a food as the brand that she previously used, and to that end created her own ‘study’.   She bred two sisters to the same stud dog, and fed one litter her previous food, and fed the other litter Royal Canin.  She compared the puppies in each litter, and determined that Royal Canin was the superior food, and has never looked back!


Diane Herns has bred many Champion dogs; is always in the ribbons at the English Springer Spaniel Specialties, had #1 Sporting dog in the US in 2007, visits nursing homes weekly with her Therapy Dog, and competes in Agility & Obedience, .but most importantly, is a Champion of dog health.  She is at the forefront of DNA testing, spending untold amounts to donate to studies trying to understand and eradicate diseases in her beloved breed. 


Diane is a tireless promoter of Royal Canin food and products (both she and her husband have Royal Canin red winter jackets!)   I am her web designer and had added a show photo to her site, and had cropped the photo to better fit the space.  She emailed me to let me know that I had taken too much out of the photo, and wanted the Royal Canin dog food bag (sponsor of the show) back in the photo!   Diane is ever in contact with our breeder representative providing feedback on products.


I think if ever there was a person deserving of this trip, I would love to see Diane Herns have the opportunity to go to France.  It would be a wonderful trip of a lifetime as well as a wonderful learning opportunity for her.   I would also like to think that Royal Canin would be sending an ethical, informed, top winning breeder as a representative of Canadian breeders.

I've been living the Royal Canin philosophy with my Labradors since 2006.  Meeting individual needs with appropriate diet is easy with the range of nutrition available, educational material supplied and Pro Repguidance.  The ability to consult Dr Fontaine, attend seminars and access the Diagnostic Assistance service completes the package.   It is a privilege to recommend the Elite Breeders Club to breeders and the Pet First educational newsletter to puppy buyers.
