Hi Everyone,

This is the update front page for your three ring notebook with dividers that we suggest you get.  It details the litter parentage.  The pages that you get in the coming weeks will include puppy pictures and details of the puppies growth and development through the weeks until you pick up your puppy.  It is important in all future correspondence that you refer to the litter number, and when you get your puppy to your puppies individual ID number.  Because we market not only our own puppies, but puppies from beginning breeders who are getting established with our breeding lines, the litter ID numbers are becoming essential, as my memory is just not what it used to be, and many “call names” are identical, as are a number of owner names now that we have been in the business of breeding poodle puppies for ten years.


                                            AM1 Litter – Born July 1st , 2005                AKC Litter #:  PR064888/01-07                    COI:  1.84 @ 99% 2036/2046 

                                            SIRE:  Minaret’s Bandero Rojo “Rojo”                                 PP654954/05                          COI:  3.81 @ 98%  2020/2046

                                            DAM:  Karbits Amanda of Friendship “Mandy”                 PR014733/06                          COI:  3.66 @ 98%  2012/2046


Sire “Rojo” is a beautiful red male, approx. 26 ˝” at the withers, and approximately 60# when evaluated at 4 years of age.  “Rojo” has a low inbreeding co-efficient, but his COI also shows low percentage of influence of standard poodles known to contribute to genetic problems in the breed.  Combined with “Mandy” whose COI is also low in both areas, it results in a litter with an even lower COI, and a lower genetic influence from the standard poodles in the background known to be genetic carriers.  “Rojo” has a delightful personality, and is competing in AKC shows.  “Rojo” is owned by Esther Underkofler – Minarets Kennels.

“Mandy” is a beautiful cream, with conformation very like her granddam “Windy” (now 8 yrs of age).  “Mandy” is a delight, having a loving personality and gentle disposition.  She is a third generation farm and herding dog – following in  grandmother “Windy’s, and great grandmother “Cassie’s” (Intl & Vet CH Friendships Cassandra Too – now 12 years of age) paw prints. We will be taking “Mandy” back into the show ring after this litter to earn her adult International Title as well.  “Cassie” and “Windy”, both at 7 years of age and after several very large (12-15 puppies) litters,  not only earned their titles the first three shows, but also were Best of Breed, and “Windy” was Best of Breed, Best Bred by Exhibitor and then Best Veteran and Best Bred by Exhibitor in the entire show for 2 of the 3 shows.  Here’s hoping that “Mandy” will continue the tradition.
