Asplendour kennels is Debbie Clark of Kimskaya Samoyed notoriety.
Married to Gordon a besotted Frenchie owner. We live in Tasmania, Australia and run AK9 Kennel Complex
ASPLENDOUR began with my gradual exit from my many Kimskaya Samoyeds which I have had a love affair with for over 35 years. I still have a small
breeding kennel of Samoyeds.
My library research began for a smaller breed due to a knee injury. I
discovered the French Bulldog and spoke to a few breeders and met a few
local show dogs.
We contacted Kiangsi kennels and were blessed to be sold Piper in
partnership. Piper is a nicely marked pied and I began showing him with
While we were on a holiday in Hawaii we met up with Mike and Jackie Rabang, and cuddled our first fawn frenchie. Gordon loved this colour and was smitten with their cheekiness and temperament.
We wanted a show quality fawn to begin my breeding programme and chose Mink
from Kiangsi kennels. We are now breeding our first litter, which is due
mid October 2013.
I cannot imagine my life without a Frenchie and hope to breed quality sound
puppies in the future.
I am a breeder. I spend a lifetime learning pedigrees, going over dogs, talking, and learning from those in my breed and those outside it. I raise each litter as if I gave birth to them and spend an equal amount of time finding them loving forever homes. I only put puppies on this planet that I think will be the healthiest (mentally and physically) and nicest examples of their breed. I support each family who chose one of my puppies and let them know they are now a part of ou...r extended family. I am there if one needs to come back. I support my breed in rescue and education. I hold them when they arrive and leave this world. I share my knowledge and socialize my dogs so that they will be the advertisement for my dedication. I don't keep track of the money and time I put in to my love of dogs, it would not be a true measure of how I feel. The price I charge for my puppies is never profit, but investment in the next generation. I am not ashamed of who I am... I work hard at being a good dog person and encouraging others to be the same. I am a breeder and I am proud of it. I am not a puppy farmer . If we don't support each other - we are doomed as a breed.
