We have been
poodle lovers and enthusiasts for over 35 years. Our first and
second poodles were silver miniatures and were treasured family
companions as our children were growing up. As our
second miniature was reaching her senior years we purchased our
first black standard poodle from Bibelot Kennels bred by Susan
Fraser and Elaine & Bob Whitney.
Little did we realize the new adventure
this black standard girl would lead us on.
FOLLY, "Folly" to us became the foundation of
Standard Poodles. She gave us our first six home-bred champions.
Folly continued to preside over teaching her grandchildren and
great-grandkids their manners for 14 1/2 years until the end of May 2001. She
will always have a special place in our hearts and her spirit lives on in her
offspring here with us.
Folly's daughter Kayla from her first litter was our
first official Reigate Champion and our first Obedience Champion. Ch. Reigate's
Blythe Spirit CDX celebrated her 15th birthday April 8, 2004 but sadly Kayla
went to the Rainbow Bridge August 30, 2004. She was always a true ambassador for
the poodle breed, a dear friend, and still missed.
