Columbus Countryside Veterinary Clinic
We are conveniently located 1 mile north of Columbus, Wisconsin, off of Highway 73 North, with convenient hours to serve your needs.
Outside of work, I can often be found riding my horse, hiking, canoeing, spending time in the garden, or traveling. I have two sons--my oldest is in the US Air Force, and my youngest is attending college at UW-Stevens Point this fall to study chemical engineering.
I have enjoyed many pets over the years including dogs, cats, rabbits, pocket pets and horses. For now, I share my home with my cats, Ascheron, Zephyr and Furiosa, while my horse, Bandit, lives on my friend's farm with her horses and our many chickens.
My father, O.R. Corbett DVM, had requests for a groomer at his clinic in Vinton, IA.in the early 1970s& we thought it was something I could do. I initially learned grooming by working for a groomer as an apprentice. However, my REAL training came when I became involved in showing dogs!
I passed all of the testing sponsored by the Professional Pet Groomers Association in the mid 1980s & became one of the first 50 “Certified Master Groomers” in the country.
I’ve groomed at numerous veterinary clinics in Minnesota & Iowa. For much of my professional life I had my own shop in Des Moines, IA.
I have owned & shown many breeds including Irish setters, English cocker spaniels, whippets, Pomeranians, dachshunds (wire & long haired varieties) miniature & standard schnauzers, afghan hounds, bulldogs, and other breeds. I am currently licensed by the AKC to judge English cockers, Irish setters, golden retrievers & cocker spaniels (“American”) & Junior Showmanship. I’ve judged all over the US. My late husband Pete Bauer was also involved in the canine world as a breeder & AKC judge.
As a breeder of English cocker spaniels I have produced more
than 70 champions. As a handler I finished at least 200 other dogs
for clients. I bred, owned & showed
the top winning English cocker spaniel bitch in the breed’s history.
“Witch” aka ChJaybriar’s Heretic NA ECM,
won 7 all breed Bests in Show, 2 National English Cocker Spaniel Club of
America specialty shows, Best of Breed at Westminster Kennel Club & the
first 2 AKC Eukanuba shows. Witch’s other wins were MANY! She was also a top producing bitch having 26
champion offspring. She appears in
literally thousands of pedigrees of today’s English cockers.
I also bred, owned, trained and showed an all breed obedience trial High in Trial winner. I’ve competed in agility trials & field tests.
