About Us

We're Val and Pat Maloney of Scarborough, Maine. Our first breed was Old English Sheepdogs and we had them for many years, showing and breeding occasionally. It was at a show that I first saw my first Beardie, and I always looked for them after that. I was intrigued. We received our first Beardie, Cher, from our friends and breeders, Larry and Angela Stein of Tolkien. Things were never the same after that! We currently have 4 Beardies and our new addition is a continuation of the line that Cher started. We are thrilled to be able to keep it going.

Beardies have also led to my work in healing. I am now a Reiki Master/Teacher, Integrated Energy Therapy worker, an animal communicator, and am studying to be a Medical Intuitive. Most of my work is with animals, although sometimes work is needed on both animals AND their humans!

I am also an artist and paint dogs on mailboxes, slates, etc as well as make jewelry.

I truly have gone to the dogs!

Pat works for a local woodworking company and handles the dogs in the ring. For years he taught marching to high schoolers in the local marching bands. That must be where the patience came in!

I am President of the Bearded Collie Club of Maine. Pat is the Vice-President of BCCME. Both of us are founding members of the club and publish the club's newsletter.

We have 3 human kids who long ago learned how to take care of the dogs when we were away. Thanks kids!
