I created this page for a little background on what makes my heart beat. First, I give God the credit for any and every success
in my life. Without Him, I would be nothing. Next, I THANK GOD for my husband - my sweetheart, Clifton Roberts. On 5/22/1991
I met my soulmate. Clif and I have celebrated many years together; we consider our marriage to be one of the greatest gifts
in this world.
Year 2011 was a medically-challenging one for us. I closed my bulldog program, taking an 11-year break. While in doctors'
offices, hospitals and during the wee hours of the night when I couldn't sleep, I worked on my book. I was first published
in 2012; my third publication was in 2018, with the convenience of Amazon printing my book upon order! "RAISING DOGS
WITH COMMON SENSE" is a culmination of many lessons learned over my lifetime, and especially during the first 20 years
of my bulldog program! I'm excited about rebuilding my OEB program for hopeful puppies in 2022.

Our son, Robert, blessed us with his beautiful wife, Brittany... and they blessed us with two adorable boys, Mason & Lucas!
When Robert was born, I prayed, "God, please let me live long enough to see this child go through school, so that I
know he'll make it in this world." Robert graduated high school, went to college, found a career he loved... and so
my prayer changed: "God, please let me live long enough to see Robert be married, and hopefully have children of his
own." Again, God answered my prayer! Just when I thought that LOVE couldn't get any "bigger" than loving
my husband and my sweet boy, along came a daughter-in-law to love as my very own, and GRANDBABIES! Oh, my, how special these
little ones are! One of the sweetest sounds in this world is when I hear them call out, "Granny!" We are so proud
of Robert & Brittany for putting God in the center of their family. As you might guess, I'm still praying!

I'm told that reading my book is just like having a conversation with me. Mission accomplished! I don't mess around when
there are measures to be taken in order to save your dog's life. I've given every option possible in my book in hopes that
it becomes an "owner's manual." I love knowing that folks read my book BEFORE adopting, so that they are more prepared
for the little surprises that are contained in the "Forward" of my book. Enjoy my humor, take note of my warnings,
and please - do your own research.
I am not a veterinarian, nor am I a vet-tech. But I do consider myself to be an expert when it comes to RAISING DOGS
WITH COMMON SENSE!
