Diann grew up with dogs and became involved with her own dogs when she got her first Jack Russell Terrier, Cayenne, over 10 years ago. She was active with the Jack Russell Terrier Club of America's Russell Rescue and participated in their terrier trials. Before her retirement, Cayenne participated in earthdog and visited local nursing homes as a therapy dog. Diann rescued her second JRT, Winston, in 1998 and together they have earned numerous agility and obedience titles, including the AKC MACH title. Winston was named the Parson Russell Terrier Association of America's 2006 Agility Dog of the Year. Winston is now retired and enjoys his new job as Squirrel Patrol. Diann is an AKC Earthdog Judge and has served as Trial Chairman for the PRTAA's National Obedience and Agility events. Border Collie, Reddi, is now competing in AKC and USDAA agility.
