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. Recently I designed a commercial Boarding Kennel in Gilbert, SC.

In 1997, I founded and incorporated the AKC Parent Club for the Boykin Spaniel... after having watched the revolving door power clique that its Society registry had become.... I, as a Registered Nurse, was more into the health issues that plagued the breed rather than obtaining or keeping power. There were (and still are) mounting puppy mills which were allowed to proliferate without any sanctions on mass breeding and promoting of health testing prior to breeding. At that time, I pretty much stood alone in this pursuit....those in power, at that time, made survival as difficult as possible if you made any waves. I made waves. But today, I am 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 my Boykin Spaniels.... Hobbies include travel, upland hunting, lake life and any sporting activities of my grandchildren.

My son, Donnie and his wife Karen and their three children call Lexington “home”. My granddaughter, Brianna, is now a Regustered Nurse ... grandson, Trey is a Senior at Erskine on a baseball scholarship ... and the youngest, Ty is a freshman at Upstate USC in a baseball schlorship. Even with time flying and their growing into wonderful young adults... they have contributed much love and time with my Boykins all their lives. 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 my wonderful Boykin Spaniels, including hunting, conformation and champions.... and retired couch potatoes. We hunt and compete regularly. It's a Family Tradition. :-)
