Lyn was the founder, publisher and editor of "The Wonderful World of Bouvier" in 1993. The purpose of this publication was to provide a publication for individuals to share information and experiences that would assist all individuals in achieving maximum benefits and enjoyment from their companions, pets and show dogs. The Wonderful World of Bouvier purchased The Cobbystone Gazette and the two publications were merged into one publication.

Lyn purchased her first Bouvier,  Kara, in 1984 as a pet and family companion. Kara took immediate control of the family, in particular the youngest child who suffered from grand mal seizures and cardiac crisis. As a result of Kara's vigilant watch our child was able to overcome two cardiac crises when the medical monitors failed in their alert. This relationship cemented our family's love for this breed and their ability to serve mankind.
