Happy Day!!!

January 30th brought me an extremely proud day...
Aro became my 1st Home Bred Grand Champion!
Not only that- but he also took Group 2 placement!

Many thanks to Chris Bailey for beautifully presenting him AND to his special person, Pam Greene... without her this couldn't have happened.  After his Championship he was shaved down and she decided to grow his coat back for this huge achievement!  What an awesome woman! 14 months of growing out his hair again, with the help of a special friend, Danielle Villareal!
He looked so great!!
Thank you ladies!

Thank you, Chris - for getting that done so quickly - and to his breeder, Terry Welman,

Congratulations to our new Home-Bred Champion!
Introducing the very lovely

AKC CH BIS U-GCH Desert Reef's A Touch Of Class
# 5 UKC's Top Standard Poodles - nationwide!

So proud of her - and Bruce Swift!  Way to go!!!!

Cephira is very special to me ... I so love her!
She is Myles daughter, which that alone makes her precious- such perfect temperaments! 
She took time off showing to have a beautiful (all silver) litter.
Bruce then grew her coat back out from a short clip! He's amazing!  
So many thanks to him, as he put many of her points on himself and raised her from just a baby.
She achieved her U-Grand CH and took her 2nd Best In Show the same weekend!
What a body on this girl!!!

I know her sibs and kids are celebrating as well...They are very special too!
With special thanks to Laurel Berg, who took Cephira in that day!

These two pictures just 12 months apart!  

The honors of my 12th Home Bred Champion goes to

CH Desert Reef's Boy Oh Boy!

Gable is my first puppy champion, finishing at 10 months old! 
Gable's parents are Multi Ch Desert Reef's Twiilight Going Uptown and Ch Desert Reef's Genesis At Redsage.
He is a wonderful boy- happy and so willing to please!  He will go on to make me proud as he has some fun
in International and UKC shows as well as start Obedience and Rally titling.
Thank you Judy for not only loving and giving this boy a fantastic home,
but for your participation in achieving his Championship!  
And of course to Chris Bailey for her superb care and handling.
 At 6 months old she said he can be a puppy champion ... and she was right!  

Amelia's daughter, Billie, is out showing with Chris Bailey and doing fabulous!  
She has 10 points already from just a few entries.
Fingers crossed she'll be home soon.  Sure do miss  her!

After 9 ring appearances, winning 7 of them... and finishing with 3 majors,
Billie is now

AKC CH Desert Reef's Idolized!
Making her my 11th Home Bred Champion!

Great going Billie and her handler, Chris Bailey- many thanks to Erica Muno too for helping keep up Billie's coat.
 I couldn't have done it without her!
These two Blue Standards are my grown up puppies, AJ and Ava - 6 year old brother and sister. 
It was wonderful to see them at the grooming competition in Las Vegas... where they both placed! 
Congratulations to their wonderful groomers ... nice job ladies!

(It was taken from far away so it's rather grainy!)

2015 UPDATE- Ava and AJ were used again for the grooming competition with Barkleigh. 
Once again... WINNERS!!! 

And now 7 years old- they look great and it was so wonderful to give them huge hugs and kisses again.
Only fair to post also their other blue sister that won the year before with her groomer!  
Here is Amelia with Amy Stempel 
*Amelia is Billie's dam*


This is the beautiful Brooklyn, Ch Sterling The Journey Gets Better,
whom I co-own with her breeder JoAnn Sterling.
