AKC GR CH Le Glorious Lombardi du NOLA's Caniche Rouge was on the Eukenuba Honor Roll - he was finished BBE and he is the only Apricot Standard Poodle Dog AKC GR Champion. (AKC GR CH Farley's D Xanadu is the only Apricot Standard Poodle Bitch! There are only the 2!)
Am very proud of my boy, even if he is all dog.
He injured himself and needed stitches so though we went to Eukenuba, we did not get to show. Couldn't miss taking a few photos for the Memory Wall, though!
PS Leg is fine! Stitches are out - scar is hairline and Lombardi is back to his Fabulous Self! You can see the injury on the inside of his off show leg. I could see it in his stack - which even not feeling 100% - still aint half bad!

He actually cut the leg at my house on an old window. I'm building, and many of the components I'm using are... GREEN! haha Or you could also say someone else's trash!
I felt like the worst doggy owner when it happened.
And, yes, he was just being a hound, sniffing and meddling where he had no business. But...that IS what they do!
Lombardi is definitely a testament to "show dogs" get to be "normal dogs".
The first treatment was surgical glue and steri strips, and most of the cut was superficial, but I did worry about the bottom of the cut. When I became concerned, Tuesday night, that the glue was not holding, I made the decision to locate a vet for follow up.
Wednesday I found a great vet - a poodle owner - in Orlando, Dr. D. Jones of Animal Health Care Center (he loved that his first patient from Eukenuba was a poodle! out of all the breeds.... !!) Dr. Jones was GREAT, we talked through treatment options, and ultimately decided to debride the wound (which made it worse for a couple of days) and stitch. After all, Lombardi will be going back to Eukenuba next year
Stitches are out, (healed up and haired over as my Dad would say!) and he has his next show this upcoming weekend. He'll be going after his Bronze Gr CH.
