As a Breeder I have planned my Breeding Program years in advance.
I select the puppy from the litter that I feel will mature to be the Ideal Poodle.
Joy is that poodle. Joy always "struts" she is so full of herself.
Her tail is always up and she is totally fearless.
Her and her buddy Pepper are playmates and you can almost hear them laugh
as they hide in the bushes laying in wait and then pouncing on each other.
Joy has perfect movement with loads of reach and drive with a straight topline.
I just love the fact that she has lots of rear angulation and chest and while a bigger girl
still has that nice refined poodle head without being too much so.
Joy's first show she got a "GROUP" placement against Champions.
Her second show I had breeder judges approaching me begging me to show her
further and to learn how to groom properly to have her look her best (better than my attempts)
I decided to keep showing Joy and she quickly earned her Grand Championship
proving without a doubt what I felt all along, she is an exceptional quality Standard Poodle
But Joy is more than just a pretty poodle...
Joy loves working for praise and having a daily job to do when she is not cuddling.
Joy excels at Lure Coursing and ties with Finnegan, Ruby and Razz, for the First Standard Poodle
in UKC and AKC History to earn a Coursing Aptitude Title AND a Coursing Aptitude Excellence Title
Joy is first Brown Poodle in AKC and UKC history to earn a Coursing Ability Title
Joy trained in a few short weeks for Rally Obedience and hit the UKC and AKC shows earning 100/100 scores
with 1st Place and class wins. Joy will be working towards her Obedience and weight Pulling titles in 2013.

Joy and her forever owner "Fred" in New York
A breeder has to be a most unselfish person,
and always have their dog's welfare at heart above all else.
So while I do indulge in my hobby of breeding and chasing
that elusive perfection, in the Poodle breed, with each generation
it is with much mixed feelings that when my kids are finished
contributing to my Breeding program, and accomplished all their titles, that I retire them
to be the one and only, cherished pet in a very special home.
Because i have kept on of their babies to continue on with my dream.
Joy was very fortunate to have Fred come along and offer her such a wonderful home and life.
