was “born into” dogs. Not into show dogs, but into the hunting world.
Her Dad originally had sporting dogs and coonhounds. From a early age,
she knew dogs were her passion. Soon after the coonhounds, Erin’s dad
found Beagles and Erin found her true love. Their dog “Candy”, UKC/ARHA
GrCh Fischer’s Coldwater Candy; broke and set many records in her day
and started Coldwater Beagles.
Soon Erin discovered 4-H and began showing her dogs in Obedience, Agility and Showmanship. Through this venue her “dog show moms” introduced her to AKC confirmation. At the age of 16, Erin got her first show dog and a new love was born. That Beagle became Am/Can Ch. J and L’s Hearts Desire, “Abby”.
Erin took some time off of breeding and showing to concentrate on school and family. In 2014 she reentered the showing world and in 2016 the next generation of Coldwater Beagles was born. Now, it’s a joint venture with her husband, Tim and son, Cael.
