instead of jewelry and perfume for birthdays and Christmas,  I get 'chrome'!

My husband John and I have a small show kennel called CornerStone Saint Bernards, on 6 acres in the Town of Darien Center located just east of Buffalo, New York...brrrrrr....
John owns a Crown and Bridge Dental Laboratory, where I work part time.
We have two adult children. Our oldest Jacqueline, is a Private Investigator. Our son John III  now has his own dental lab.  John's wife, Lindsay is a high school English teacher  John and Lindsay have given us two beautiful grandchildren.  Aurora and John IV.
Our story begins a little more than 30 years ago when we brought home our first Saint Bernard, Brandy. Immediately we fell in love with this breed.  After learning more about this breed, we decided to expand our little family and included more Saints to the clan. From this moment on, fate continued to point us in the direction of our passion for this wonderful breed.  As a child I had shown my Scottish Terrier, named Dolly  at 4-H and AKC Dog Shows in Jr. Handling, Conformation and Obedience. With the childhood experiences of showing I decided I wanted to show 'quality' Saints.  Over the years our Saints have won numerous awards and honors that showcase this fine breed. Presently we have ten Saints that reside with us.  Six of which are Champions and 2 are major pointed. We have had a few more Champions that are now at the Rainbow Bridge.  There are also some youngsters here that will be seeing the show ring soon.
I am currently a member of St Bernard Club of America.    Additionally I have entered our Saints in AKC  Weight Pulling. My dogs and I also attend weekly dog training classes in obedience and conformation at Communicate and Play in Hamburg, New York.  John and I have attended numerous lectures and training seminars on the breed, history, reproduction, canine health and nutrition, behavioral and breed conformation.  We have attended over 10 of the Saint Bernard Club of America's National Shows. 


Our other passion is riding our motorcycles.  What else....Harley Davidson...American Made.

Diamonds, perfume and gold might be another women's present at Christmas ...mine is 'chrome'

It's all about the chrome baby!


If you think dogs can't count

try putting 3 biscuits in your pocket
