Much excitement on Saturday when Darelle's boy Codie gained his points for his Grand Champion title.
My only claim to fame was the bouncing kangaroo Muffin got challenge points on Saturdays shows.
Bruno trotted happily until Sunday when he had a sore neck and Diva plodded dutifully around for Baby of Breed in every show.
Vegas is so skinny it is not funny and is not putting much weight on his right front foot. He tried so hard though, and is such a happy boy.
02.05.12 Loaded the K9 camper and headed off to Grafton. Stopped at Tucabia to visit Tracy and her poodles and the team had a great time running around her acreage. Nearly got stuck again, left the lawn in a bit of a mess.

6.2.11 BRANDY update -poor Brandy had an accident with the doggy door at his new home, so has returned to us and had his hip operated on today.
25.1.11 Went to NZ to visit my very aged father. NZ was lovely, Oamaru was sunny, Dunedin, where I went for a high school reunion (50years) was cold, grey and raining. Christchurch was warm and sunny, but rather shattered as everyone was only just recovering from the first big earthquake, when they got another big one on Boxing day.
29.12.10 VEGAS ia a daddy again. He sired 5 very pretty puppies with my friends black girl, Cheechee, and to prove that genetics is sometimes correct, there is a rather handsome little brown boy. This is also an interesting date, as it is his father, Banjo's birthday as well. ? Is this an omen?
20.12.10 Lily, Snowy, and Topsy brushed the mud of their legs and lined up for the Christmas photo shoot. Teddybear was asleep just off camera, and escaped the dressing up process as she has become rather portly lately and nothing fitted her.
8.11.10 Vale - Ethel-Ch Bienaime Evening Breeze
Our beautiful Ethel finally passed away after a 7 month battle with probably a brain tumour. A real trooper to the end, Ethel coped with initial blindness, and loss of smell and balance,She rapidly lost weight and we thought she would not last till the end of May, but in June got her sense of smell back, and possibly a glimmer of sight. She had a lot of good days in her final 6 months to make the battle worth while. It has been a sad year for Ethels side of the poodle family, with finding out recently that her sister Millie, who stayed with us every holidays for 4 to 6 weeks, had died earlier in the year of Cancer, as did Ethels beautiful chocolate son Freddo up in Townsville. Last week (December) her daughter Chilli died of a brown snake bite.
20.10.10 Babies will be going soon
All Lily's lovely babies are sold and will be soon going to their new families. They are lovely babies, friendly and happy with lovely waggy tails and have adored everyone who has come to visit them. We are going to be very sad to see them go..

She had 6 babies, three white and three dark, two silver girls, and one silver/blue boy. After a few cold nights to start, they are all doing really well.
08.08.2010 Vegas got a first place in Junior Dog at the Brisbane Royal, and although the dog challenge went to the Open class dog, he still trotted around beautifully with his tail in the air, and absolutely loved saying hello to all the people who patted him after he had been in the ring.
14.07.2010 Vegas is know an Australian Champion, he gained his last points on the 3rd July with a best of breed from a big entry of Miniatures, then went BOB again at the Etta Hawkswood memorial show, which was rather fitting as he is the great grandson of her lovely black boy, Bentley.
VEGAS is also a great grandchild of our foundation bitch ,Minnie, and he also has her lovely tail wagging happy temperament. Viva las Vegas!!!!!!!
VALE. Minnie- (CH NEIGER SWAN SONG) 21.10.1993 to 29.10.2009
Minnie passed away peacefully at 10.25am on Thursday morning.
She was forever the perfect poodle princess, ruling the roost with a benevolent white paw. Waiting at the door to greet visitors with a big poodle smile and a happy wagging tail.
Where ever she went people always came up to speak to her and pat her, she just had that "Poodle Magnet" charisma.,
