Deb is the first poodle I've bred. I love this little girl. She is the best lap dog I've ever owned. She has been shown a little this year. (about 20 shows) and has 11 points with both majors -- all owner handled.

What a beauty! 20 shows sounds like a lot to me! But I know nothing about showing... I understand the lap dog part, though! lol!

Wow, I'm impressed and encouraged with your handling Deb to 2 Majors and 11 points! She is well on her way to becoming a champion. Was it hard to find shows where she could earn a major? I've been going to shows for the past 2 1/2 years and have only seen 1 show (just last weekend) where there were enough minis competing to earn a major. How many shows did it take you to start feeling a little comfortable in showing her?

Congratulations on your success!

For some reason this year, we have been to a lot of shows with Majors. Deb's first 8 shows were all majors (she won one of them) Then, her last six shows have been majors (she won one of those). She has only been in 8 show that were not majors. I guess we just have a lot of Mini bitches in Colorado right now.

I showed my own Samoyeds for over twenty years, so the "ring" part of poodles is my comfort zone. It is the grooming part that makes me very uncomfortable. With Debby and Davin, I pay a groomer to do all the show grooming. I maintain them and groom them after they retire. My hope is to someday be able to groom my own show poodle, but that may be years away.

She is gorgeous! I can't wait to see more pictures. They remind me of my little Zulee.

Congrats on your points. It's no wonder that she would be a favorite. It sounds like you really enjoy handling. I would be a nervous wreck.

What beautiful poodles!
I so enjoyed visiting your website... congratulations on the lovely wins and good luck on completing Deb's last little bit. She is absolutely gorgeous and you should be very proud of the great job you are doing! (in many ways)

And Samoydes too? Do you still have any? One of my pups lives with a Ch Samoyed... he still goes out as a Special... and Sienna goes along with them. When he gets back from the ring, she goes in his kennel with him. It's so fun to see pictures of two different breeds, like that, love each other.
Welcome to the forum as well,
Karen

I too loved your website ! It looks as though you too are very passionate about your dogs and what you do. I am doing my own grooming . So far having trouble keeping topknot and neck length. Being on this forum has really educated me...
I too come from a background of showing another breed and feel very comfortable in the ring. so I look forward to hearing more about you and your wonderful Poodles and Samys of course ....
