DRIGGERS FAMILY
 
Mark met Cathy while she was still in high school. They were both working at McDonald's. Both Mark and Cathy were raised in the same town and graduated from DeLand High School. They live in Lake Helen, Florida and have two daughters, Tori and Ashlee. They raise AKC Pomeranians and have recently started raising Keeshonden.
Our love for Pomeranians goes back many years. Even though Cathy had always loved Pomeranians as a child, it wasn’t until 1995 when she adopted her first Pomeranian from a shelter. However, it was several years later before they would decide to get into showing and breeding. Cathy studied Animal Science and worked with vets and shelters before her life took a completely different path. Mark spent six years in the U.S. Navy and currently works in the nucleur medicine field. Mark and Cathy are members of the American Pomeranian Club, WVKC and the Greater Atlanta Toy Dog Club. Mark and Cathy are both AKC Breeders of Merit, AKC New Exhibitor Mentors as well as AKC Canine Ambassadors. Owning and/or breeding dogs is not something to be entered to without knowing what kind of commitment it really takes. They feel education is real important and they enjoy helping others that want to get started in the sport of purebred dogs
 
 
 
 
 
 
I first got bitten by the “Dog Show Bug” when I got a 5 pt. major from the puppy class at the Jacksonville, FL show with a Bullmastiff puppy bitch I had bought. I continued to show her, finished her and bred her.  She produced two beautiful pups, one girl, one boy, both finished as Champions.  Then life took a turn for me, and I was divorced and move back to MD.  I then worked and continued my education in the computer field and did not have a dog for 20 years.  In 2005 I retired from the Federal Government where I worked for the Dept. of the Navy as a Computer Specialist Project Manager and moved back to FL . in 2006 and I wanted another dog. I researched several breeds and decided the French Bulldog was right for me. The breed reminded me of the muscled but gentle Bullmastiff, but lap size with erect ears. I am now enjoying having a loving lap dog that follows me from room to room.  I have bred now two litters. The first litter produced Diamond who is shown in this picture when we won Best in Sweepstakes at the FBDCSE  Supported entry at Ocala, Nov 2010. He is a handsome guy who now resides in Dallas, TX. I now have two little girl pups which I have great hopes for.  The breeding is similar bloodlines as Diamond.  The sire is from one of the top producing French Bulldog’s of all time- Ch. LeBull’s Fargo who has produced over 57 champions to date, and still countin
