" First they ignore you, then they laugh
at you, then they fight you, and then, you win."
Mohandas Karamchand Ghandi
This page is a collage of pictures representing the naturally
raised Persians of Crystal Pond. I am very proud of my work with these animals.
It is a blend of my early years up
to now - and I still have a good number of wonderful photos to add. Some
of these seem so ancient to me now. I love browsing these photos and remembering the moments they were taken.
It is amazing how much you change and the knowledge and experience you amass over the years as a breeder. You are always
learning, that never stops.
I look forward to the shows as I am so limited
with my work obligations. I actually work 7 days a week and have for years. Really cuts my show attendance
down right now but I have to make a living.
The shows allow me to meet new people and see all the
breeders and wonderful breeds. It is alot of fun and a great way to network and make new contacts.
3 show pictures below will always remain on this page in remembrence of the late CFA Allbreed judge, Vaughn Barber
Jr. who passed away February 20, 2004 after a long illness. He was one of my favorites and a very popular
judge who embodied intelligence, kindness, humor, many talents, and above all - a true gentleman.
He will be greatly missed in the Cat Fancy.
