Kevin owns a printing and supply business. On weekends you can
usually find us at a dog show or just hanging out on our ten acres. We have four children, Heather, Jenna, Daniel, and
Jeff, plus several beautiful Pomeranians. We also have five wonderful
grandchildren, Zachary, Althea, Christian, Brexten, and Bailey.
Pomeranians have been a part of our
lives for the past seventeen years. Our love for this breed started with one dog,
a black and tan female, named Baby. Even though she weighed 15 pounds and
wasn't registered, her loyalty and love gave her a
permanent place in our home and lives. And after 16 short years, she is
forever in our hearts. May she rest in peace.
The decision to
head to the show ring came about when we purchased a blue and tan female
from a breeder in Portland. She did well in her first competition as a
young puppy, but she failed to produce a proper coat. She also had some
minor faults that didn't make her an "ideal" candidate for the ring.
Because we were new to the Pom breed, we didn't completely understand her
faults. Poms come in many different varieties, including size, body types,
head types, colors, etc., and it took time to learn what type was preferred for
showing. Over the years, we've also discovered that type can change, so breeding
plans may have to change to continue to be competitive in the show ring.
in breeding is to achieve the standard of the "ideal"
Pomeranian as set
forth by the American Pomeranian
Club and the American Kennel Club.
We interpret the standard as we understand it. Our preference is to produce Pomeranians that are structurally
sound with good movement and nice type. We finished our first champion in 2004, and we started our
own bred-by's in 2005. Our first home-bred champion finished in June
of 2006 from the bred-by classes. He also became our first bred-by multi group placer
and best in specialty show winner. BISS Champion Evensong's Win N For Z Gipper,
We have learned a
great deal about the breed since we started showing. Continuing to study the
standard, reading pedigrees, listening and talking to other show breeders,
attending seminars, and reading articles and books have helped us a lot. As well
as plenty of hands-on experience. Our knowledge has helped us to remain
competitive exhibitors in the ring with several of our Poms finishing from the
bred-by class, garnering best of breed and group placements, even winning at the
specialty shows. You can see our finished bred-bys on our Champions page.
We finished a nice black and tan
boy, CH Park Avenues Tuff Chance, "Harley," who was bred by Tom Wilson of Park
Avenue Pomeranians, and who is being used as
an outcross to bring in new blood. And new blood he has given us indeed, with 2
black and tan girls from one litter. GCH Evensong's Tuff Girls Can Dream, owned
and shown by Nordic Vision Pomeranians. This little girl, "Maress," is competing
right now for her Lure Coursing title with two legs to go. The other girl has a
big title: BIS BOSS BISBBE GCHB CH Evensong's Dream On Bytches, HOF. CH Gwyn honored
us by winning our first all breed best in show in Yakima, WA, in 2016. She
earned her way into the APC Hall of Fame with that win. She also won a Bred-by
Exhibitor best in show last year and finished 2016 as the number one all breed
Pomeranian bitch. In 2017 Gwyn went on to win back to back best of opposite sex
in specialty adding yet another title to her name. She also finished the year as
a new bronze grand champion. We couldn't be prouder of this girl. CH Gwyn also competed at
the 2016 AKC National Championships in Florida in December 2016, and won Best Bred-by
and an Award of Merit under esteemed judge, Mr. Edd Bivin. I should add, too,
that CH Harley won back to back specialty shows in 2015, and he was an APC Top
Twenty Pom that year. CH Harley is pictured on our home page.
We breed about two to
four litters a year. Our puppies are evaluated at 8 to 10 weeks, and we
will hold back the puppies we think may turn out for us to show.
Providing we can't keep them all, we will occasionally have an available
puppy or adult for sale. These will generally be the Poms that we feel do
not quite meet the goals we are trying to achieve for our program, but it does not mean that they are
not of good quality. Adults are generally those that are being
retired and who need more interaction then we can give them. Please visit our available page for puppies
and or adults.

On a final
note, our Pomeranians are probably some of the most "spoiled" and well-loved dogs in
area! This will never change, no matter what.
They are well socialized, they travel with us to shows, etc., go to work with
Kevin as weather permits, and sleep with us. Well, they take turns
sleeping with us. :)
