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.

                                            DAM:  In Orbits Aurora Madeline “Maddy”                       PP580577/02                           COI:  3.24 @ 96%  1972/2046


Sire “Calvin” is a beautiful soft brown male, approx. 26 ½” at the withers, and approximately 60# when evaluated at 1 years of age.  “Calvin” has a wonderful gentle disposition, and adapted into our home while his family was in Texas for a college graduation, like he had always been a part of our family.  He was a delight to have around.  Combined with “Maddy” we expect this to be an outstanding litter of blacks, browns, and possible creams and apricots, or even silver beige and café-au-laits.  They both bring the full color spectrum into play from their backgrounds, but more importantly the temperaments of the litter should be outstanding, as was the “Maddy” x “Sterling” litter two years ago – and are still being raved about by their families.

“Maddy” is a beautiful black,  with conformation very like her dam “Windy” (now 8 yrs of age).  “Maddy” (now 6 yrs) 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. “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.  Linda is hoping to take Maddy” into the show ring one of these days as well where she  will hopefully continue the tradition.
