The name Spiritrock comes from this solitary large granite boulder that we discovered in the middle of a spruce forest on our cottage property near Kingston Ontario. It appeared to be magically deposited there on top of an extensive limestone base. We are all, including our Barbets, constantly drawn to this rock. When the light shines through the trees it is difficult to tell whether the light is falling or rising from the rock itself but it is a wonderful sight. It seemed to represent what we wished to achieve with our kennel – strength, beauty, light and magic!
