About

Here is a little bit of info on Steve, me and all of our critters. For almost twenty years I bred and showed purebred dogs (Chinese Shar-Peis and then French Bulldogs). Over time I bred many Number One dogs, Top Ten French Bulldogs, Best in Show winners and more under the Jackpot! French Bulldog kennel name. Actually, BOTH of Martha Stewart’s French Bulldogs were bred, born and raised here at Jackpot! Francesca’s mom is Favor and dad is Keeper.

I am honored to have bred the first French Bulldog with OFA Excellent hips AND the first FBDCA (French Bulldog Club of America) ROM (Registry of Merit) dog, CH. Jackpot! Money Money Money. CGC, ROM. But getting pictures of dogs of mine that have lived to be 14-15 or so is what makes my heart sing the most!

We no longer breed dogs and have added a Great Pyrenees and an English Toy Spaniel…

We no longer breed dogs and have added a Great Pyrenees and an English Toy Spaniel (black and tan variety) to our family. I keep my foot (make that paw) in the door by judging every now and then and mentoring Frenchie friends as needed.

Wiley (Howell) books commissioned me to write "The French Bulldog" which is still in print see it on Amazon under my maiden name, Kathy Dannel. I wrote many articles for a variety of dog publications over the years. A couple were even nominated for DWAA (Dog Writer's Association of America) honors.

I have always appreciated a more holistic, natural approach both to taking care of myself and my animals. Less can be more and simpler is often better (except when it comes to shoes-more is better on shoes). By experimenting on myself and my own dogs I discovered some amazing remedies and products. I hope you feel the same and enjoy them in the spirit in which they are offered...with love and the best of intention!

Thank you for reading this far!
