ABOUT BLOSSOM VALLEY KENNEL:
My goal is to produce wonderfully temperamented Lab puppies to place in loving pet homes.  My dad hunted and bred Labs in Kentucky, where I was born.  I remember playing with Lab puppies as a child and exploring the countryside around the small town of Benton, which had about 2,000 inhabitants back then.  I don't recall playing with other children as much as my dogs.  I think I always preferred dogs to humans!  My Dad gave away my dogs when he moved our family to San Diego in 1956 when I was almost 9 years old.  I was very depressed to lose my best "fur" friends.  I eventually grew up, went to college, getting a B.S. in Physics in 1972 and a J.D. in 1987.  I lived in Torrance, working for TRW Space Systems from 1973-87.  After graduating Loyola Law School in 1987, I worked in Century City for a litigation firm (Parkinson, Wolf, Lazar & Leo, et al.) for 3 years and then, in 1990, I went in-house at Southern California Edison Company in Rosemead and retired in 2013.  

In 1988, I bought 12 acres in east county San Diego, California, near Lake Jennings County Park in an area called Blossom Valley, with the goal of establishing a ranch and having lots of fur friends.  I designed and built a large house on that land and moved in in April 1998.  Once there, I started collecting miniature horses, goats and dogs.  Kasey Mando urged me to go to horse shows and dog shows so I registered my AKC kennel names while living there with the prefix of "Blossom Valley."  I lived there until 2010, when my commute to work in Rosemead grew to 3 hours each way (140 miles), so I decided to move closer to Los Angeles. 

In June 2010, I found a 20-acre parcel witih a nice house in Aguanga, CA, which is in Riverside County.  My commute decreased to 2 hours each way so I was happy.  After I fixed up that property, I moved to a property closer to the main highway in 2013 when I was preparing to retire.  I retired from Edison on September 30, 2013.  This property is more level for my animals and I have a pool, which the doggies love.  Now I have a herd of about 35 alpacas (I make fiber into yarn for sale), a miniature horse, Labrador Retrievers, Parson Russell Terriers, (Jack) Russell Terriers, a Rottie, 4 pygmy goats, 3 peacocks, about 20 guinea fowl to eat bugs and kill baby rattlers, and an Arab mare named Lavonna, who I used to ride.
