News Flash ** Raffi Completes his Utility Title **

Ch. Reigate's You Are My Sunshine UD, RX, DD, AGN, AGN.J, ADC, Am. CDX
We just received news that Raffi and Gillian completed his last leg of his Utility title. I think I am correct that they accomplished this task in 4 trials.
Great news for this wonderful team!! Wow!!

Draft Dog Title

This is a venue that usually attracts the Bernese Mountain Dogs and Neufs. Our Raffi and Gillian held their own in an entry of 16 dogs and they were the only poodle entered. There were three passes, the standard poodle, the Viszla and a Berner. Hooray for poodles!!! Raffi's great grandmother Portia is our only other Draft Dog title holder earning her DD and DDX. many years ago. This was fun to watch, very difficult work and such a wonderful group of people holding the event.


Raffi is a Donovan and Reigna son.

New CKC Champion

CH. Reigate Querido finished his championship title at the Chilliwack shows in September 2010. Reido was handled expertly by Terry Bernier and looked wonderful in his continental trim at 14 months. Judi And Reido now plan to move on to the fun stuff like performance venues.
Congratulatons to all of you for a great job.

Donovan Our Special Boy

We are very proud that Donovan was one of the special dogs chosen to be in the 2010 Versatility In Poodles calendar. He is the July feature poodle.

Donovan while co-owned with myself is exclusively trained and trialled by Margot Jorgensen to his performance accomplishments. He is a remarkably willing and happy worker. They are a team that is a pleasure to watch and we hope to see them in their upcoming venues. Donovan has several kids who are also participating in performance events so we will be watching for them as well. These include Dexter, Raffi, Celine, and Aimee.
