A Bit (well actually a lot) of History
In 1983 I bought a German Shepherd - her name was Heidi, she was my first pedigreed dog. Unfortunately she wasn't show quality, so undeterred we started obedience. She was a challenge; at every step we met new and interesting ways to do the opposite to what was supposed to happen. Drop on sit stays, roll over on down stays, take the food on food refusal.......... needless to say we learned a lot from Heidi.
Some years later another German Shepherd, Torro, joined the team - he made it to CD. I was hooked. He was also my introduction into the show-ring. Until he grew too big that is!
One day at an obedience trial I watched a poodle go over a jump - "all flags flying"....... that experience was to be start of the rest of my life.
In 1991 a black Miniature Poodle, Jasper, came into the family. We tried the show ring but he didn't want to do it. Climbing out of the show trolley was his most perfected skill. Without a show dog but keen to work on my showing skills a partnership was forged with the late Mrs Irene Bellingham and I showed and titled two bitches and one dog with her. Ch Saisonelle Kiss n Tell (Teeka) , Ch Saisonelle Peyton Place (Peyton) and last but certainly not least the stunning apricot male Ch Aprika Captain Scarlet (Imp UK) (Dexter).
Around this time I also titled three toys from Beaujolai kennels - Connor who became Ch Beaujolai Powershift; Riot, Ch Beaujolai Raising a Riot (who has just passed away just shy of her 17th birthday), and Ch Beaujolai Black In Style, Mercedes.
I love my toys but Miniatures were my first love and a chance introduction by Irene to Jennifer Sculac of Jenuin Miniature and Toy Poodles was to play a major part on who I am today and the success in the show ring and foundation of my kennel.
Jenny put her faith in me, still a definite novice, and a little brown dog Louis came to stay. He retired as multi group and class in show winner Ch Jenuin Firecracker. He was a foundation dog in my kennels - a lovely boy and the first of many dogs that have each found a special place in my heart. I will always value the help Jenny has given me.
Other dogs bred and or titled since then:
Ch Jenuin Magnolia (Maggie May)
Her daughter Ch Jenuin Obsession (Abby)
Abby's daughter Ch Pudelian Decadence (Trinity) - Runner up Best of Breed at Perth Royal Show
Trinity's daughter Ch Pudelian Business Arising (Arianne) - multi class in group winner, runner up to best of breed at 2012 Perth Royal Show to Kate............ (read on......).

Ch Jenuin Black Stilettos (Stella) - multi class in group winner
Her daughter Ch Pudelian The Barefoot Contessa (Ava) - class in show and multi class in group winner
and following on the tradition................Ch Pudelian It's All About Me (Kate) - multi class in group winner, Best of Breed at 2012 Perth Royal Show.
Ch Jenuin Diamond Doll (Ziva)
Ch Jenuin Exteme Design (Brodie)
Their son Ch Jenuin Chocolate Eruption (Callum) - his daughter is Ch Pudelian Business Arising (Arianne is also Trinity's daughter) .
Another little toy came to stay for a while, Jackson, and he too proved his worth becoming Ch Jenuin Hot Gossip.
Also relationships were formed with the late Mark Chapman (sadly gone but not forgotten) and Louise Smith of Luachra Kennels and Ch Luachra Hair Raising (Mitchell) made his mark from his then home base here in Perth and also Nancy van Roon sold me a sweet and more than competent show pup who strutted her stuff to become Ch Sivaro Downright Wicked (Eirlys) - Best of Breed Perth Royal Show
Jenny MacKenzie of Montaires Miniature and Toy poodles has become a close friend. We have recently campaigned Cash aka Ch Montaires You Betcha - son of the top Miniature Poodle in Australia in 2011 Ch Dechine Top Secret (Imp UK), then the VERY TALENTED Macey who is officially Aust Ch Montaires Shes Outa Control (toy) came to join our show team. This friendship is one I value enormously. She is my "rock", a tell-it-how-it-is lady with many years of experience in breeding and showing. Jenny is a continuing influence on me. Pudelian is the home to two new show toys with the prefix Montaires - Sailor (Montaires Hello Sailor) and Kiti (Ch Montaires Kickit Tome). Kiti gained her Australian Champion title at just 12 months of age and she is a powerful big moving bitch with loads of style and confidence.
We have also have been very fortunate to get to know two wonderful ladies overseas - Mrs Doris Backe of Splash kennels Sweden and Mrs Chris Bailey of Jaset kennels in the USA. Our two imported boys, Morgan - Ch Splash Sudden Impact (Imp Sweden) and Regan - Aust and Am Ch Jaset Regan Reigns at Pudelian (Imp USA) - who is currently in the show ring - are gold star assets to our breeding programme. Regan is currently strutting his stuff out in the show ring. He is our "pocket dynamo" - a dog with HUGE potential. Morgan has proved himself as a multi class in group winner, he is a proven stud dog and has the best temperament anyone could ask for - Morgan is a true gentleman.
Another "mini-me" came to stay for a while; he is now known as Aust Ch Montflair Making History (Imp UK) - Slater, he along with Ch Lefay Gotta Be Chocolatte - Harley, were co-owned with Sylvenus kennels. They were special dogs, Slater especially as he took pride of place at the end of our bed each night.
More recently someone with a totally different look - Miss Sybil the Miniature Bull Terrier came to stay. She finished her Championship with a Best In Group win. A super proud moment as it has been more than 14 years since another Miniature Bull Terrier has won Best Exhibit in Group. My thanks to Mrs Deb McLachlan for having the faith in "a poodle person" selecting a puppy to show and allowing me to campaign Sybil. Officially known as Ch Starmin Caramel Delight ROM, she was one very special mini bull !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! A rare breed not to be scoffed at! Deb and I have also titled Sybil's half sister Sierra and her half brother Albert and campaigned them and Miss Sybill at interstate specialties to in-show awards. Young Miss Harriet is currently in residence following in Sybil's footsteps. She too has an identity crisis thinking she should have a topknot too.
A few years ago we campaigned two Portuguese Water Dogs - both are still with us - Bronson - Ch Bluegrace Bofors In Oz and Imogen - Rulett Aitchtwooh; they did their bit. Bronson was a consumate show dog, Imogen a home body. They are still loved and reside with us and will do forever. Bronson is now over 15 years of age and still holds court - he is a proud PWD.
Needless the say we love our dogs, take care in planning litters and strive for constant improvement.
Along the way it became obvious to me that I should formalise my love of dogs and I now hold ANKC Championship show judging licenses for groups 7 (Non Sporting), 2 (Terriers). and Group 1 (Toys). I am not currently studying for any additional groups as my commitments to our Governing Council and other committees take all of my precious spare time.
No need to waffle any further - please enjoy some snap shots of our dogs........................ we strive for perfection and that is it!
What is in print is current or history - the future beckons.......................
