I have finally tracked down the pedigree of my boys' dam and have found out that quite a few of the dogs come from the sandpiper and kit sue kennels. I was hoping that someone may know something about the kennels and possibly the dogs directly related to my boys.

Some of the dogs on their's dam's side are va legends what legends r made of, mccasland's monique, sandpipers parksville pride, G's sonomas tacoma sunrise, sandpipers the eyes have it, sandpipers fallow your dream, kit sue's presley scout, kit-sue's free bee's key-put, kit-sue's chason choclate and gwen night dreamer.

I emailed the owner of kit sue kennel and she said that she used to own the great grandpa of my boys, kit sue's presley scout who was born in 02, but doesn't have any other info or photos. A friend of mine thinks that may indicate that it is a mill? I don't want to jump to conclusions though. I am trying to compile info on my boys' family including what photos I can find. Part of the reason Im doing this is because I want any medical info available as well as because I feel the more I know about their family the more I will understand them, possible temperment issues, structural issues etc. I may just be crazy though.

My boys' sire is from goldmine and biblot lines and know a bit about them now, thanks to the super smart poodle people here.

Any info will be appreciated. Thanks

Kitsue is one of the more notorious high volume breeders in the US. Her dogs can be found in the pedigrees of most BYB and puppymill Poodles. She also sold to Doodle breeders for years and her dogs are behind many American bred Doodles.

Basically she sold breeding dogs to anyone who came cash in hand. She has a history of breeding very young dogs and she never did much testing. She seems to breed towards trends. When Reds were first hot, I know she bred that color. Now she seems to have moved on to Partis. I guess she focuses on whatever sells the best.

Ah...makes sense. The only place I could find kit sue's presley scout online was in several labradoodle's pedigrees. The kit sue spoos on my boys' pedigree are all parti spoos.

Is she an outright mill or just has a ton of spoos in kennels but sanitary, well fed etc? I guess it doesn't really matter as I know Mercury and Jupiter don't come from high end lines but I guess it would really bother me to think that dogs had to be in tiny filthy cages popping out babies for my boys to exist.

My Standard has Kit-Sue lines in her and the lady I got my dog from bought her male directly from her, she picked up the puppy from Sue's house and what she told me was it was a Poodle farm. Kennels and runs all over, all dogs were clean and sheared down to nothing but top knot and ears. She had 80+ breeding dogs and 5 litters on the ground all between 8 and 12 weeks old. The puppy my friend has vomited and pooed the entire car ride back to Oklahoma. His coat still astounds me as his brown spots have soft wavy hair and his white is very coarse. This is him as of November 2009.

His pedigree is located here -> http://www.poodlepedigree.com/pedigree.asp?ID=375262

Oh and he was sold with full registration and was told that if bred he would throw "red" parti puppies.

I can not comment on Sandpipers, I have heard of them but know nothing about them really.

My very first UKC show I was introduced to Sue and the two parti poodles which she brought for Grand Champion class, which one of them was Preston. She couldn't even cage her dogs because she said they'd be shooting out both ends. Both couldn't stay off her lap. I held them in front of her so she could at least have lunch without them being up on her. Sue is the one on the left.


Their was a male parti poodle from Colorado that beat the entire class out repeatedly. He was the most gorgeous parti I had ever seen. I have a picture of the ladies grooming the female they brought too but can't remember their names.

Thats a lot of income for her. She must be hardened after years of doing what she is doing.......

Thanks for the great photos! I assume Presley is the silver parti laying down? He is a very handsom boy. I am glad she was affectionate with the dogs and takes an interest in showing. What did you mean by "shooting out both ends"?

That is quite a lot of offspring and often that site only has a partial list so I wonder how many there are in reality.

I'd assume it to mean diarrhea and vomiting because they are nervous. They are looking to her to reassure them which is why they are all over her.

Maybe a good chance they were out of their element.

I wonder what the ladies beside her are thinking..........I'm weird and pick up on strange details lol. One looks like she is sweet as can be smiling through something and the other looks mad at the world like:thefinger: The silver one that she had looks good - but they don't look that great to me (the dogs)......but who am I?!

I emailed the woman who owns the Sandpiper kennel and she has written back and I must say Im impressed. Even though my dogs are a few generations away from her dogs she is being great. She will be sending me medical history, photos etc on the dogs on my boys' pedigree. I honestly expected to get a similar responce that I got from kit sue. She seems happy to share about her dogs which is how I think a breeder should be. Ill let everyone know what I learn.

Wow. That's a lot of puppies! I wonder what happened to the mama pup...

The only "Carefree" poodles I can find is a website for Carefree Labrodoodles. That seems odd to me...same people??

My dog also has a Carefree and Kit-Sue in her history so I find this thread very interesting. Bella's grandmother was a "Carefree" and one of the 7 litters (to the same male, w/in 4 1/2 year span) on the pedigree site shows two of them being named "Kit-Sue" so I'm guess Sue bought 2 of my pups "Aunts" and named them her kennel name. At least that's the best this novice can get from all this!

And now her site is all parti poodles.

No, Preston is the brown and white party with the black and white party girl who is on Sue.
Shooting out both ends means that if she puts the dog in the cage they get so upset that have flying vomit and diarrhea.

Oh, I had assumed that Preston was the silver parti laying down because he is registered as a silver and white parti. My boys' sire is registered as a color he isn't though so I guess one can't always go by that. I wish I could see the brown parti's face a bit better but certainly do appreciate getting to see as much as I do. I think they are all quite beautiful. Of course, I have only ever seen one spoo that I found unattractive.

Yeah that doesn't sound like normal behaviors.
I agree.

When my friend when to get her dog Sue did have a few dogs who lived in the house with her.

I also wanted tyo mention that there was a DNA mishap with Sue's dog "Pilgrim" who is the grand sire of my dog, when she submitted "Pilgrims" DNA test to AKC his did NOT match the sire listed on his papers. It also did not match any of the dogs she owns/were tested and it came down to being a "mutation".

Anyway her website is very misleading and from what I have found is she is a very high volume breeder.
