'Do not go into the garden of flowers!
O Friend!  Do not go there;
In your body is the garden of flowers.
Take your seat on the thousand petals of the
Lotus, and there gaze on Infinite Beauty.'

(Kabir ca 1440-1518)

We are a small kennel located in the heart of Muskoka.  Our name comes from an Ojibway name meaning "Water Lily".  Waome was also the name of a steamship that plied the waters of Lakes Muskoka, Joseph and Rosseau.  On her last run of the season in October of 1934, she was headed from the upper lakes toward Beaumaris. She carried her Captain, five crew and one passenger. She met her fate when a powerful gust of wind knocked her onto her port side off Keewaydin Island.

She went to the bottom in less than a minute with the loss of one crewman and the passenger. Her Captain succumbed to a heart attack while swimming for shore in the freezing water.

Captain Charles William Henshaw

The Captain was my Great Grandfather.   We therefore decided to name our kennel after that steamer that is so tied up in our family history.

We have been breeding Tibetan Spaniels since 1995 although we have had different breeds for a many years.  We found the Tibetan Spaniel when we were looking for a small dog that was capable of dealing with our Rottweilers.  It was an instant love affair and the rest, as they say, is history.
