Joey is one of our favorite judges for Angora. Angora is also one of his favorite breeds, so much so that he married an English Angora breeder! Doreen was showing English Angora when she met Joey. They had an earth-shaking romance and have been married for over10 years. They are still like teenage lovers that no one can pull them apart.
Joey was a top breeder of Flemish Giant. In 1987, when Betty went to her first ARBA convention, she recalled that the Best In Show of that convention was "a big man with a big rabbit". That big man was Joey and the big rabbit was one of his top Flemish Giant.
Due to the change of lifestyle and space, Doreen is no longer into English Angora and Joey is not into Flemish Giant any more. They are now the top breeders of Mini Rex. With their knowledge and dedication, they can do well in any breed of their choice.
Pictured here on the top is Joey, the other two photos are Joey and Doreen with their little Pomeranian "Annie" or the official registered name "Heathercreeks Hotdam Here I Am". The breeder of Annie is another favorite judge of ours: Judy from WA.
Joey with Randy are working toward getting another national convention to CA, hopefully in 2008.
