Poodles can be miracle workers! There's a wonderful story of a retired show poodle helping a little girl with cancer to feel better and have hope. Read the story of Mandy and Electra here:http://www.ridgewoodpoodles.com/Mandy%20and%20Electra.htm

They are entered in the cutest dog contest, there's a cash prize involved, money that would no doubt be very helpful in obtaining the best care and treatment for Mandy. It's easy to vote here:

Come on Poodle People, do your thing and spread the Poodle Love!!!

Please help Mandy and vote for Electra !

Hi, My name is Cathy McGinnis/Ridgewood Standard Poodles
Martina just introduced me to this group. I don't have tons of time for various groups, but like to scan and join in when I can.

I raise/show Standard Poodles with moderate success. I was blessed to have known Susan Fleisher, and gave her one of my poodles as a service dog when her Electra was getting on in age.

I, personally have/had a delightful poodle being specialled and was #6 in the U.S. named "Electra" who is now serving a much HIGHER purpose - her story can be read here:
www.ridgewoodpoodles.com/Mandy and Electra.htm

And that brings me to my BIG FAVOR to everyone here - Mandy's mom has entered Electra in a weekly "cutest dog" competion. The weekly winner will receive $500, which will help defray Mandy's health costs (Mandy is undergoing chemo for NF1 and Optic Glioma) - and she is only 8 years old.

If everyone could go and vote everyday, and pass the info along to everyone they know, it would sure help to push Mandy & Electra towards the top - and I just don't know a more deserving pair - or a cuter pair!


Thank you so very much!

VOTED!!

This was a great story... sorry for the sweet little girl, not a great story that she is ill, that is not what I mean.... but the poodle therapy about it is great! My sister and I feel the same way about the standard poodle, they are just the most amazing animals, so intuitive and right there for you! We are both smitten by the standard, we can't say enough good things about our crew!

My best wishes go to that sweet little girl... and all children like her!

I agree, all concern should go into breeding to keep that wonderful standard poodle attitude, temperament and health.

Electra is at 2275 today. Luther is at 3672. They have combined the votes from his two photos, and there is only one photo now.

Forward the link to all your friends, and vote from every computer and game system you have. We can still catch him!

Power to the Poodle! :)
