About us

Patricia Long Watts
Patricia L. Watts
I am originally a Georgia peach from Augusta and I transplanted to South Carolina in 1977 as a Registered Nurse in the Trauma Center at Richland Memorial Hospital. With degrees from DeKalb College of Nursing (DeKalb, GA) and from the University of South Carolina, my career résumé is a true saga of the rise of women in the business world. In 1985, I was professionally honored by being named Outstanding Woman in Industry by the State of South Carolina. I have incorporated and managed two successful businesses - one being an up-scale Salon and Day Spa, the other being the first company to design Mobile Nuclear Waste Characterization Units for the US Nuclear Industry. I also designed a commercial Boarding Kennel in Gilbert, SC.

In 1997, I founded and incorporated the AKC Parent Club for the Boykin Spaniel breed…..The Boykin Spaniel Club & Breeders Association of America….which greatly expanded the reach of the breed to participate in just about any venue possible and be supported in that venue. I, as a Registered Nurse, was more into the health issues that plagued the breed and there were many. There were (and still are), an ever increasing number of puppy mills which can proliferate without any health testing prior to breeding. Back in 1997, I pretty much stood alone in this pursuit....those in power, at that time, certainly made survival as difficult as possible to anyone who made any waves. I made waves… and survival was made difficult…But today, with new leadership aboard I feel respected for that stand and have watched the health of this wonderful breed steadily improved because of it.

I am active in my Church and sporting events which showcase Boykin Spaniels.... Hobbies include travel, upland hunting, lake life and just being a part of my grandchildren’s lives.

My son, Donnie and his wife Karen call Lexington “home”. My granddaughter, Brianna, is now a Registered Nurse ... grandson, Trey, is a Senior at Erskine on a baseball scholarship and is President of the Student Body... and the youngest, Ty, is a freshman at USC Upstate on a baseball scholarship. We love baseball! Even with time flying and their growing into wonderful young adults... they have contributed much love and time to my Boykins. Our lives have been greatly enriched and molded by the love these furry children have given to each of us over this lifetime.

Hollow Creek Kennel sits on 2.4 acres on beautiful Lake Murray and currently houses our wonderful Boykin Spaniels, including hunting, conformation and champions.... and retired couch potatoes. We hunt and compete regularly. It's a Family Tradition. :-)
