Periwrinkles Shar-Pei has been active with the Chinese Shar-Pei since around 1987, at which time we owned, and showed our dogs and puppies. My beautiful Sado or O-kees Ro-dos Shishado, was my first love and sadly passed due to an unfortunate auto accident. Some of my foundation puppies lived to 17 years of age and were foundation stock to other breeders.
In 1988 we were fortunate to have the opportunity to purchase, co-own and show, the beautiful black horse coat National American Champion "BISS CH Alpha The Headliner" The 1987 National Best of Breed Winner, from Pam and Mike Litz, of The Alpha Kennel, along with Ch. Alpha Moshu Spendabuck" a beautiful cream brush coat, which added color, health and type into our program. We fell in love with black. I was at that time, Secretary and Editor of the Chinese Shar-Pei Club of Canada. We also then and now, belong to the AKC, CKC, Chinese Shar-Pei Club of Canada and Chinese Shar-Pei Club of America.
I took some time away from the shar-pei community to raise my children and business, and have since, returned back to my passion, with a commitment again, to the betterment of the breed, both in health, type and standard, and hopefully the insides will match the beauty of the outside and bring longevity to our dogs and puppies.
Upon our return, we searched pedigrees , breeders and type far and wide, to find those we were most satisfied with.

John and I both love to show and the last 5 years, John has become known in the show ring, showing our dogs. He has worked very hard to promote breeder handling and showing. As well a big thanks to Norm Fargo and Will Alexander and all the judges along the way that recognized the beauty and standard in our dogs, their showing and judging skills are very much appreciated.
We also owe a big thank you to the breeders that worked closely with us, selling, co-owning, showing and handling our dogs in the United States, as well, providing a very healthy breeding stock, and our beautiful female show dogs who have also worked hard. Thank you Tammy Bohlke, Barbara Lavere and Rebecca Pentacost for all your assistance throughout the last 3 years, and we hope for a continued relationship for the future, in the show ring, and breeding programs, that will allow for a continued relationship for the betterment of the breed we love.
We look forward to all the future shows, including the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show , yearly which we attend.
8 Ball is number one Shar-pei for 2020 in Canada and has made the top 25 nationals in the US. Also a big thank you to thank Hailey Griffith Handler extraordinaire, for taking over showing her in Canada. What a team.
