Hi Marilyn & Corky,
Thank you again for allowing us to adopt a kitten. Your cattery is beautiful and we were all impressed by the love and care you provide for all your many cats and kittens.
Thank you so much for letting us come by to visit you, Corky, and the kittens yesterday. We absolutely loved every minute of the visit and we are really excited about getting the new kitten!
You have a beautiful farm and home, and we really appreciate all of the time you took with us. You run a top notch operation and we were really impressed with all that you do for the kittens there. Thanks again to both of you!
ABOUT THE FARM
Briar Glen Farms is home to Ragalong Ragdolls , Graymar Great Pyrenees , Border Collies and New Zealand Huntaways, Briar Glen Dorsets, Mesopotamian Fallow Deer and assorted Pheasant varieties, Koi, and our nags, Stormy, Cricket and Legacy.
We have farmed for over 30 years and inadvertently got successfully involved in Forestry Grazing for 10 years under the moniker AGFOR to control competing vegetation on B.C. clearcuts, when the vagaries of forestry took a turn for the worse. We had to think of a way to utilize our faithful dogs who had served us so well over the years. We did not want to have them put down, so instead started raising our Graymar Great Pyrenees primarily for pets as well as our Border Collies and called the Canadian Guide Dog Program to try out our New Zealand Huntaways. The Huntaways were temperament tested and 3 were accepted into the Guide Dog Program where they have proven to excel in all the demands made of an excellent guide dog.
We volunteered to puppy walk one of them, Lori, who has demonstrated an excellent predisposition for her work. She won rave reviews from the evaluators for temperament and aptitude. So, happily, our New Zealand Huntaways have found an alternate source of work and service other than herding our cutblock flocks of 1500 sheep.
