Hi There! Let me
take a moment to introduce myself and tell you a bit
about me and my dogs. My name is Pamela (no, not “Pam” -
ha ha). I live in Northern California between Sacramento
and Lake Tahoe in the beautiful foothills of the Sierra
Nevadas. I have lived here since 1995 and just love it.
Prior to that I lived in Texas for 15 years - Arlington,
Dallas, & Houston. I’ve had Great Danes for tons of
years (note I’m not giving my age away here….) and have
had Bostons since early 2001.
To be honest, obtaining my first Boston
was really just a fluke. My son, daughter-in-law, and
grandson were living with me for awhile and wanted to
get a small, but sturdy dog that would fit into their
lifestyle, so being the nosy – oops..., I mean helpful,
mom that I am, I started doing some research on the
Internet about dogs and came to the conclusion that a
Boston would be perfect for their family. So, as a
surprise, I found a breeder and purchased a little bitch
puppy for them.
Well, lo and behold, when my kids
moved out, the little puppy, Ruthie, had fallen so
in love me (or was it the other way around????) that
she just couldn’t leave with them. Oh well, I guess
they’ll have to find their own dog after all. But
the bottom line is that I found this breed to be
perfect for me. Don’t get me wrong, I still have and
adore my Danes too, but oh, the lovingness of the
Bostons. If only I had found them sooner..
have a small kennel in the foothills of Northern
California. Actually, I hate to even use the term
“kennel” as all of my dogs are indoor dogs and only
go out to go “potty” or play in nice weather. They
all sleep in my bedroom and are well socialized with
other dogs, people and children. All puppies are
whelped in the house and puppies stay inside until
they are old enough to start running and playing,
and then they get to go outside under close
You may be wondering where I got
my kennel name, ChriMaso. I have two children, both
boys, who I love more than anything else in the
world. After my family, I love my dogs. Put it all
together and what better kennel name for my dogs
than the combination of the names of those I love
even more than my dogs – MY KIDS - Christopher

those that I have purchased. They are
all wonderful and special to me. The
hobby of showing is my passion and these
little guys make it a joy!
Bostons are intelligent, eager to
please, and sometimes stubborn (comes
from being smart), but they are always
kind and loving. They are truly the
American Gentleman of dogs.

again soon. Have a great day and may God
bless you along the way!
