At vero eos et accusam et justo duo dolores et ea rebum. Stet clita kasd gubergren, no sea takimata sanctus est.

Iam undique

Silvae et solitudo ipsum que illud silentium quod venationi datur magna cogitationis incitamenta sunt. Proinde cum venabere, licebit, auctore me, utpanarium et lagunculam sic etiam pugillares feras.

Experieris non

Dianam magis montibus quam Minervam inerare. Vale Ridebis, et licet rideas. Ego ille quem nosti apros et quidem pulcherrimos cepi. Ipse? Inquis. Ipse; non tamen ut omnino ab inertia mea et quete discerderem. Ad retia sedebam: erat in proximo non venabulum aut lancea, sed stilus et pugilares: meditabar aliquid enotabamque, ut, si manus vacuas, plenas tamen ceras reportarem.

SANDYHOOK Frenchies...About Us

I began my 40 years of AKC Show/Breeding Program with English Bulldogs. I was honored to have many of my dogs are featured in The Book of the Bulldog by Joan Brearley. For years I owner handler my dogs to their championship in the conformation ring. Several years ago I added the Pug and continued showing the Pugs also. The young lady with the pied (and the ribbons) is our artist friend, Carrie Stump. Her smile is what it is all about!

In 2003 I had Open Heart surgery to repair a Mitral Valve and found that I could no longer handler the larger dogs. I wanted to continue my career in the ring, but with an easier Bullish breed, so the French Bulldog was perfectly suited for me! Their size, companionship, and overall personality is just perfect for me. I currently have several AKC champions, an Agility champion, Two AKC CGC champions, and an International Certified Therapy champion. This is quite a versatile breed.

With the expertise of my photographer/friend Dwight Dyke, our dogs have been featured in many national and international magazines, calendars, and other forms of advertising.

I am an active member of The Virginia Kennel Club, The Virginia Federation of Pure Bred Dog Breeders, The Bulldog Club of America, The Pug Dog Club of America, and The French Bulldog Club of America.

Sandyhook, my kennel name, is derived from the Norris’s Family home-place, dating to Colonial times in Virginia. Built about 1830, it is located on the Rappahannock River in Middlesex, County Virginia. The property in the original court records describes the land as a sandy-hook in the road situated in a forest of trees surrounded by small Indian reservations. Times have changed!

Yes, I absolutely love 18th Century Antiques and run a small antique business. My home is also decorated with a large collection of dog collectibles. Click here to read about a delightful treasure I found. Our family was in the decorating business for years and I had an active part in the business. I also have three grown sons and a young grandson, Dylan who loves Grandma’s Wolf-Wolfs.

Our Motto is...

“ Excellence is your Choice, Quality Breeding is Mine.”
