Thieves are amoung us

BEWARE!!!!!    On Thanksgiving evening about 7pm, November 24, we were gone and it happened that my helper at the kennel was here.  She was at the kennel when she heard Beau & Ice barking from the turnout pen. She looked up and saw tail lights backed up to our puppy barn.  Someone was here!  She ran from the kennel to the barn and found a sandy red haired women with two of our puppies in her arms carrying them to a red single cab pickup with a crate in the back.  There was a long haired man driving the truck.  The lady told her that I had given the pups to her for breeding and she was here to pick them up.  Luckily my helper grabbed the pups from her arms and told her that she wasn't getting pups when I was gone.

They had the back gate of their pickup down.  Who knows how many pups they were after or how much equipment they were going to help themselves to.  

With the price of puppies being up, everyone should be aware that there are thieves out there who are stealing pups.  And if you are purchasing a puppy, be sure that the paperwork is with the puppy. Get the name, address & license plate number of the person selling the pup.  Make them show you their drivers license. You may be purchasing stolen goods.

If those puppies are microchipped, you should check to be sure they are not stolen.  ... Karey Marrs, Bolivar, MO

The History of MPBA

The Missouri Pet Breeders Association originated as a cooperative effort of many Missouri pet breeders with the help of the University Extension Service and the Missouri Department of Agriculture.


MPBA is dedicated to advancing Missouri pet production and marketing by conducting educational meetings, disseminating informational health materials, introducing producers and our membership to the latest state of the art equipment, feeds and medical practices available and by promoting and cooperating with other organizations to support the pet industry not only in Missouri, but in the USA.


MPBA offers an opportunity to exchange ideas and information with others engaged in the pet industry.  It is an avenue to provide educational materials and information through our magazine, workshops, clinics, and seminars.  Members are kept informed on legislative issues that influence the industry and are consulted on the probable consequences of issues facing the Legislature, fellow statesmen, and membership.  All members receive the quarterly magazine and an annual directory listing members and their breeds.  The Directory is distributed to all licensed veterinary offices within the state of Missouri and both the magazine and directory go to several other states across the nation via members and vendors.


Members are expected to maintain current and necessary licensing by the USDA and the State wherein they reside and uphold the "Code of Ethics".

Cancer Dogs Save Lives by Karey Marrs

I was talking to a fella at Lowe's and he was telling me that a dog saved his life. He was visiting a friend at the hospital and was approached by a dog and handler in the hallway. The dog came up to him and then laid down in front of him. The handler asked if he was being treated at the hospital. He said that he was visiting a friend. The handler told him to go immediately to his doctor; that he was sick. He did and it saved his life. So I googled it on the internet. If you are interested in training this type of dog, see this link.  It is amazing!
