My name is Sandy, and I have been an OBGYN nurse for 25 years. For the last 15 years I have also bred dogs. Dogs are my passion and my journey with them started when I started grooming dogs at 15 years old. When I got the change to groom a standard poodle, I quickly fell in love. I knew I would one day call standard poodles my family. I started breeding German Shepherds 15 years ago, and 5 years ago I realized my childhood dream and transitioned to breeding solid and parti standard poodles under the mentorship of Nancy Kokesch of Prairie's Edge Standard Poodles in New Ulm, MN. I live in St. Paul, MN with my four standard poodles--Eve, Gabi, Esme', and Leo--my husband, Jerry, my daughter, Rebecca, our two cats, and birds.
