Meet Pepper

Pepper searching for the birds

Pepper's parents are from the "original" Majestic Kennel, directly from Joan Mistkowski.
Joan passed away in 2009 and all her Majestic Poodles were put in rescue and spayed or neutered.
Pepper is truly a piece of history with her prized pedigree and lineage that ensures that she will produce true red.
Just check out our Red Page to view Pepper's past pups.
Pepper is our red girl who really livens up our home with her games.
Pepper also likes to remind us when it is breakfast or time for a run outside with her little soft woofs or muttering
she does all while looking indignant at us, that she even had to ask. Like all our Reds, Pepper is very affectionate and
is part of our red poodle entourage that follows us everywhere and vies for space on the couch.
Pepper also has the habit of doing the "poodle goose" when you least expect it
and can instantly disappear from behind you, doing her little woofing laugh as she dives out of hands reach.
I'm so proud to have Pepper, not only because of her stunning red coat and looks
but also because she is a great working partner, always giving me 100% effort and is eager to please
Pepper has won 2 BEST IN SHOWS, PERFECT Rally scores in UKC and AKC
Top placements in Obedience and HIGH IN TRIAL in Rally.
Pepper is the Total Poodle... only limited by what I can teach her.
Pepper has produced amazing dark red pups such as:
Cooper and Charlotte and Cooper II and Dundee, Griffin, Cooper

We don't just "say" we have Total Dogs
Pepper has the UKC TOTAL DOG AWARDS to prove it !!

~ September 2014 ~
Pepper retired from our Breeding program to live
the wonderful life with new mommy "Lauren D." in Toronto, Ontario

From Lauren:
Thought I'd send you an update now that she's a bit more settled in.
this morning I woke up to Pepper standing in the doorway of my bedroom in the dark.
I turned the light on and got up and she perked up and wagged her tail !
The first couple of days she was pretty subdued, so that was awesome!
She sticks really close to me everywhere we go, but on our walk this morning she wasn't bumping into me
every time a truck passed. She is definitely relaxing and getting more comfortable :)

We had a play date with my coworker's Golden retriever, two Havanese, and three toddlers on Saturday all morning.
A long walk and a couple hours in their fenced yard. By the time we left she was getting pretty confident
exploring the yard and interacting with the other dogs/kids. Yesterday we went up to my parent's for the afternoon
she was fantastic and the whole family is in love with her, of course!

She didn't eat or drink much for the first 2 days, but she's drinking normally now.
Doesn't seem too thrilled with her kibble as of yet.
I've been stirring in a small spoonful of plain cooked ground chicken mixed with rice
and that gets her nosing around and eating the chicken plus a half a cup of kibble or so each time.
I'll feel better once she’s eating more throughout the day, but otherwise she’s doing great
getting a bit bouncier and happier every day. Stitches all look good, no puss or swelling at all.
I will take out the purple ones this afternoon.

Thank you again, she's already completely exceeded my expectations, such a great girl :)

Pepper got 2 CD legs !!
Judge: Paul Oslach
If this is not amazing enough, Pepper had to honour (remain in a down stay in the middle of the floor)
while Ruby did her routine with me because of confusion in dogs both being trialed by me.
This is a true testament to my Poodles intelligence and desire to please.
