Highlights of the May 19-22 UKC SHOW in Perry, Georgia

What a great weekend at the Perry, Georgia UKC show, despite the swine flu scare afterwards. We had such an enjoyable time meeting some amazing new poodle people and the first trip with the RV was a success. It sure made things more convenient and comfy. Chris was driving Captain, got us all there safely, and did great with hookups and setting up. We are still learning so expect it to get even better.  Was nice having a place for Nic to groom right off the back of the RV.

Taylor did fabulous and got a Best in Show and a Reserve Best in Show! Gracie won two reserve champions. LaBelle won her Grand Champion Classes. Bacardi stepped up and won Champions class, Best of Breed and a Group 3. An all around great long weekend. While we were there we got news that

I can’t even express how nice the venue was for showing in Perry. Nice enough that we will be heading there again in September. 🙂



Norman, OK UKC Show April 29-30 – Taylor Won Best of Breed!

The Norman show was fabulous! Of the three shows, Taylor was blessed with winning Best of Breed in all three, a Best In Show, Group 2 and Group 3. LaBelle won Best of Breed in two of the shows and a Group 2. The weekend was made even more exciting by the awful storms everywhere around us dropping baseball sized hail. We had taken my new Sequoia, and spent the night Saturday anxiously watching for hail and hoping it didn’t dent the new SUV.


Harlow is finally home after her Florida honeymoon with Logan

Harlow finally made it home about a week ago. After an extended Florida vacation and a honeymoon with the handsome Logan, Harlow has returned to Rose City Standard Poodles. Thanks is not strong enough for the gratitude I feel for Debbi and Jim Cole who “hosted” this prolonged stay in Florida, and for grandaughter, Kaelyn, who gave Harlow the hugs and kisses I could not while she was away. Thank you. Thank you.
Logan is either sad that Harlow has returned home or is totally worn out with wooing two ladies, Harlow and Debonaire Poodles’ beautiful Katie. His reading therapy was a bit disrupted!
Harlow will be ultrasounded in a few weeks to verify pregnancy, and I will then begin accepting deposits.

Honeymoon OR Extended Florida Vacation?

A follow up on Harlow’s honeymoon/vacation to Debonair Poodles in Florida for her rendezvous with Logan. Although she is being treated like a princess (literally), she has absolutely refused to go into season, which was due the first part of March. I would think that she would want to get this done so that she can come back home. You think maybe she has decided on an extended vacation?

Denton, Texas UKC Show March 11-12th

The Denton Show was great fun and very successful for Chris and the poodles. Of the three shows, Taylor won standard poodle Best of Breed in two. Bacardi won Multicolor Standard Poodle BOB in one and went on to group. LaBelle won Multicolor Standard Poodle BOB in two and placed in group both shows. Many thanks to Nic and Austin for helping Chris in my absence. I am still not mobile yet after my surgery.

Harlow Made It To Freeport Florida For Her Rendezvous With Logan

Thanks to Chris for getting Harlow from Texas to Florida, and Debbi for meeting him part way, to spend some time at Debbi’s house being courted by the handsome Logan. Debbi sent these great pics after Harlow arrived and says Logan is already obsessed with her —  and she is not even in season yet! Maybe it won’t be long! I bet he is remembering his Sweetheart from a year ago. 🙂
