House of Beauty Bulldogs
Stuedemann lives in Clinton, Iowa and started showing bulldogs in the early
1970’s. Her kennel name is “The House of Beauty Bulldogs”. Nearly all of her
dogs have had the “Beauties” prefix.
first started looking for a pet bulldog, Darlene’s name was on the list given to
us by Cliff & Joan Jacoby, who also happened to be Darlene’s original mentors.
You can imagine Michael’s surprise when he saw that Darlene lived in the town
next to his hometown. All this time growing up, wanting a bulldog, and none
other than Darlene Stuedemann living 10 miles from your parent’s house. When we
called Darlene the first time, she did not have a pet bulldog for us, but once
she learned Michael was from the town across the river, she invited us over the
next time we came home to visit Michael’s parents. Needless to say, we went to
visit Michael’s parents that weekend and many many weekends after that. We
visited Michael’s parents more in those next three months that we did the prior
three years. We always enjoyed our visits with Darlene and Walter when we
invited us to go watch a show with her. Although not interested in showing at
the time, we went with Darlene to the show to watch her and Amos and to see the
other bulldogs.. We had a great time, at that first show, and soon we were
going to several shows to watch Darlene and Amos. Soon, we were hooked, and
decided we wanted to get our first show dog. Darlene helped us to get Harley.

her line is known for.

been a wonderful mentor and friend. We feel lucky to have her as a mentor. In
addition to mentoring us, Darlene mentored Dara. We feel it is kind of special
that Cliff & Joan Jacoby had mentored Darlene, who mentored Dara, and now all
are mentoring us…all those years of experience to learn from...three generations
