My name is Karen Rochat and my husband, Mike, and I, own and operate Stormcloud Samoyeds.  We have been immersed in this wonderful breed for over 20 years, and have bred many champions and even better all-around dogs and family members. Between our secular jobs, taking care of the dogs, taking part in occasional dog shows, and keeping up the normal things that need to be done, we have very little time left over for other things.
