You've arrived at the former K9 Station website! You're not lost!
A big hello from Lisa Kilgore (formerly Giroux)! Me and Mom live on Panther Holler, a little six-acre farm tucked away on a wooded hillside in Clarkridge, Arkansas in between Midway, Arkansas and Gainesville, Missouri.
We chose the name Panther Holler for our little place because the old Kilgore homestead of my grandfather's in Newton County was named Panther Ranch, and we wanted to continue the family tradition. Around here we have always had very elusive mountain lions which are now making a comeback in Arkansas and Missouri. Locally they have always been called "panthers." Many stories and fables have been passed down through oral history over the years in these Ozark hills and hollers. One very famous tale about Sam Hudson on Panther Creek just beyond the Diamond Cave trailhead at the base of Mt. Sherman occured very near my grandpa's land. Stop by for a cup of coffee sometime, and I will share that exciting and mysterious tale with you. Then, you can pass it along to your children by the campfire on a dark night...
My dog training articles are still here and located on the Dog Training link.
I am raising and training working Australian Shepherds and Border Collies. All of my dogs are bred to work cattle. I will be breeding a few litters here and there--check the Stockdogs page for more information on my personal dogs.
Our little farm is currently producing eggs, meat chickens, rabbits, and rabbit pelts. Please click on the Farm link to see what's going on around here! We are having so much fun with our little place. There's always something new happening, so check back often!
