We live in the country on an 87 acre family farm (with grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, etc.). Our dogs are part of our family and are treated as such. Most live in nice, large yards around our home.
Dayna T. Johnson I am the "dog" lady ! I am also mother to 4 wonderful children and wife to an awesome husband. I am an alumni of UGA (Go DAWGS!) - graduated with an MEd and spent 2 years as a county agent with the UGA Cooperative Extension Service. I then spent 13 years teaching public high school. I loved my years employed in education but when my own children came along we made the decision to homeschool. We have been homeschooling since 2002 and that has been an awesome experience. It gives us so much time with our children and animals - our whole family is involved with caring for our dogs and puppies and someone is always home with them.
The man of the house, our strength and salvation and the one who keeps us calm. He is husband, father, role model and provider. PJ (as I usually call him) works for our rural electric membership corporation so when the lights go out, he goes out------then we're in a mess. But he always takes care of us first and foremost. We are very blessed to have him leading our family.
4 Precious Children:
We have 4 amazing children with whom we are very close. Our son lives near Atlanta with his fiance, but regularly makes the 4 hour trip down to come "home" to the farm and visit with us and his grandmother. Our oldest daughter and her fiance live in Brunswick, they visit nearly every weekend to enjoy the countryside and bring the "grandpups". Our middle daughter finished her degree and colleigate softball career in 2020 and moved back home to the farm. She lives here with her newly wedded husband, she is working alongside us to eventually take the reigns and continue our bloodlines and program. She is extremely passionate about animals and loves helping families find their perfect pup! She is a "mini-me" so thankfully our returning customers have little adjustment LOL! Last, but certainly not least is our "encore daughter". 10 years after our middle daughter we were blessed with our fourth and final child. She is now a teenager herself and is homeschooled, like her siblings before her. She is a big help around the farm and with all the pups - you can see her in action in some of our YouTube videos.
It takes a village for our lifestyle and we are blessed to have raised considerate, ambitious, and helpful children. Over 20 years of helping families find their newest member and none of it would have been possible without my family. We are very blessed and give all the glory to God.
