Volunteer for both Bullmastiff rescue groups. STACEY GAVIN

I reside in Paola, Kansas, about 30 miles south of Kansas City. My full time job is in space planning and commercial interi- ors. Growing up, my family was and still is, heavily involved in horses. I ventured off into dogs in the 80s. I was the little girl that brought home every stray I saw walk- ing down the side of the road. My parents

I live in Massachusetts. Other than showing my dogs, I love to cook and I am into canning and preserving. I have raised two sons who grew up with dogs and being dragged to shows. They are now raising their children to love and respect dogs. I have a six-year-old grand- son, Declan, who is now showing my bitch

loved that! I have owned multiple Best in Show and top win- ning Bullmastiffs. I currently judge the working group and a few herding breeds. I am constantly learning as much as I can about all breeds. I started working with dogs in obe- dience 31 years ago followed by agility and conformation. I started judging in 2011 and bred my first litter of Bullmastiffs in 1997. SHERRY BOLDT I currently live in Milton, Florida but have lived most of my life in Central Missouri. I’m happily retired, but was in the US Air Force for four years, worked in various jobs in Missouri State Government for 16 years and worked Government Rela- tions and Community Affairs for a multi-national oil company for 17 years. I have always had dogs since childhood, but got my first companion Bullmastiff in 1990 and became involved in show- ing Bullies in 1993. I was very fortunate to have Peggy and Julie Hays, Hy-Top Bullmastiffs trust me with my first show boy and was mentored by Bob and Lynn Spohr, Bastion Bull- mastiffs in the US and Pam and Tom McClintock, Shatrugo Bullmastiffs in Canada. I have bred many finished champi- ons in both US and Canada including multiple Regional and National Best in Futurity, Best in Sweeps and Award of Merit winners. I was honored to take Best Bred By at the Nation- als twice on a mother (GCHB T-Boldt’s Halloween Hellcat, Halle) and her daughter (CH T-Boldt’s She’s The Cat’s Meow, Cat). Halle also took BOS at both the US and Canadian Nation- als in the same year. I have bred and/or co-owned two Gold Register of Merit bitches as well as other lower level ROM girls. Most recent honor was People’s Choice award at Nation- als Top 25 with my male Marshall (GCHB CH T-Boldt’s To Protect and Serve). I prefer to be at the end of the lead at dog shows, but have also judged sweepstakes at multiple regional specialties. I partnered with Kimberlee Cook, Solo-K

in the Pee-Wee classes. He is starting to love the show world and with time I am hoping he will love it as much as his Grammy I have been involved with dogs for over 35 years; I started showing/breeding and raising Boxers back in the early 1980s. As time passed and I got older I realized the Boxer was too energetic for me and I have always had my eye on the Bull- mastiff so decided it was time to switch breeds. CARRIE LANE I live in Lynden, Washington with my husband John and five Bullmastiffs. Outside of dogs, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I like arts and crafts, music, garden- ing and the show The Walking Dead. I grew up with dogs and have actively shown in conformation since 1998. I vol- unteered for the American Bullmastiff Association (ABA) as a foster home and served on the ABA board as a Director and as President. My first litter arrived in March 2011 under the kennel name of Affinity Bullmastiffs. I own and operate K9 Lap of Luxury, hydrotherapy for dogs in Lynden, Washington. I am a small animal massage practitioner. I am certified in canine hydrotherapy and first aid. I have a Master’s Degree in Psychology from Seattle University.
