Donna and I live on 8.5 beautiful acres in Burleson Texas in Johnson County. We have been blessed with one daughter, one son, and five grandchildren.|
Donna and I have owned bulldogs since 1979. Our mentors were Bobbi and Press Adams of Richland Springs, TX and have been so blessed to be a part of their lives.
Donna and I showed at 4 or 5 shows a year from 1982 to 1992. Then we took time out to raise our children, and returned to showing in 1992. Since 1992 have bred and finished 14 bred by Champion bulldogs, 11 of which we finished ourselves. We are also owners of 6 other bulldog champions that we finished out of other breeders' lines.
Our kennel name came to us when people would ask about our bullies and given some specifics of our kennel, their reply was almost always.."DO WHAT??!!". Thus we arrived at DoWats where all letters are part of my surname and Donna's given name.
We are very proud of DoWat's Kennel which, as of today, is built around 6 generations of our own bred by line bred bitches. We are also glad to be members of the BCA and Fort Worth Bulldog Club and our induction into the BCA Breeders Hall of Fame in 2004, as well as proud recipients of the 2005 Beckett Award on behalf of our bitch, CH. DoWat's I'm All That.
We are active in judging for specialty events such as sweeps, futurity's and puppy matches and are both working on the AKC judging processes for judging bulldogs.
When asked about our highlights in the world of bulldogs, we both say we are so blessed with having met, known, and call so many fine Bulldoggers, friends over these many years!
