Labrador face
Fun fact: The Labrador Retriever is the most popular dog breed in the United States.

Hi, I’m Charles and I’m the guy behind this website …

Well, since this is the “about” page I thought I’d share a little about myself, to give you an idea of who I am.

I created this website to share my story and to provide a place for others to share theirs.

I’ve got over 35 years of experience raising, breeding, and showing dogs. I just love dogs.

I find it amusing when they tip their heads sideways, twitch their ears, or move their paws as they run in a dream. Dogs aren’t very mysterious. They’re simple beings whose love is unconditional.

Growing up my family had a whole pack of Siberian Huskeys — 5 in total!

Crazy to think about today, but as a kid, I felt like I was the 6th member of the pack …

Our dogs went everywhere with us … so much so that I felt that my Mom cared for them more than me! 🙂

We lived in Louisiana, a very hot place … so it wasn’t ideal for such wintry dogs.

Despite having a special affinity for Siberian Huskeys — big beautiful dogs with crystal blue eyes … later in life, I began adopting Keeshonds — wonderful mild-mannered family dogs that are better adapted for humid weather.

So my goal is seemingly a simple one: to help you understand your best friend, and provide a few entertaining stories along the way.

Thank you for stopping by … and welcome to Dogs and Treats.
