Chia was a breeding I had planned on doing on paper, for many years.
I wanted to use Colonel with a slightly more refined girl to blend type and form.
The result was Chia who really is the complete package for me.
I was happy that she had size, head type and a super dark tight curly coat.
Chia's coat came in with soft long and short wiry bits, what we call "Ugly Duckling" coat
so I made the choice to shave it all down short and even, and start over growing show coat.
What I didn't bargain for in Chia was a serious working poodle personality.
Chia is certainly taking after her daddy and half sister Charm, in that respect
and I envision getting many more Dog sporting titles under my belt as she matures.
And her "ugly duckling" coat, well you can see for yourself = "SWAN"
