"DJANGO"

 

"Django" on the grooming table waiting patiently at the International Show in Albany, OR April 2008

June 2nd, 2008:  The EV1 litter, Django's first litter was born on May 5th, and are absolutely beautiful.  See their pictures under the Standards on the Standard Litter page.  We have room for two more deposits on the male pups in this litter.

April 22nd, 2008:  The EV1 litter is due any time, sired by Django.  X-rays on April 21st, showed Eve to be expecting 9-12 puppies - a totally accurate count was impossible.  The puppies are due anytime.  We still have room for a few more deposits on this apricot/red litter.

April 2008:  Django raised a lot of eyebrows with both breeders and spectators at the Spring International Show in Albany, OR with his color, his elegance, and his wonderful people sociability.  Mishelle was groomer and handler for Martina Akeson, Django's owner for the show, and we will also be representing him for Martina as an up and coming stud to select females.  We want to thank Judges Mrs. Marti Johnson, USA; Dr. Steve Keating, USA/UCI; Mrs. Rosemary Leist, USA, and Ms Juliann Kowalsky, USA for their wonderful critiques on Django.   Following is a composite of "Django's" critiques from his first International Show:

Django earned all three legs of his adult International Title, as well as one leg of his National title.  He went Best of Breed and a Group 3rd.

 

February 2008:  Django came to stay with us again for a week to perform his first breeding on Mishelle's beautiful Eve.  Once again he just became a part of our household like he had never left it.  He proved to be a quick learner, and a very wonderful gentleman as a breeder.  

September 2007:  Django came to stay with us for the first time when he was scheduled for his Penn Hip testing at one of our Health Clinics at Aloha Dog & Cat Hospital in Aloha, OR, as Martina was going to be out of the state at that time.  He came into our home with all of our other standards and miniatures like he had always been a part of our household.  I was absolutely taken with his charm, his attitude toward people and all of our other poodles of all sizes and ages, his gentleness with tiny puppies, and his cooperative spirit when we took him to the clinic for his testing.  As a result since we have the set-up for breeding poodles we offered to assist Martina with representing him as he begins his "studly" life in contributing to this wonderful breed.
