The first-place ribbons Georgia Hicks held in her hands were a little deceiving. Based on her success at the opening day of the Reliant Park World Series of Dog Shows on Thursday, it would seem she has been around dog shows for a long time. It was there she met Sandy Dodge and quickly discovered the two had more in common than just their medical histories. For the past five years, the two Pasadena women have been traveling the country showing mini and toy poodles at shows two to three times a month. For Hicks, the animals that were once just her companions are now her life. Along with taking her own dogs to shows, Hicks is a handler and breeder. She owns 30 dogs, all of which she keeps at her house. At Reliant Center , Hicks showed three of her clients' dogs. The green rubberband Hicks wears on her left wrist stating "Donate Life" is a constant reminder that she is still awaiting a heart transplant. But having Dodge by her side — and meeting other dog handlers who have survived illness — means Hicks always has someone around who understands.
Our Story The very first Poodle in my life was in This was a white boy named "Pierre". After Pierre, there were several Toy Poodle girls in the family over the years to In , Brian and I married. No kids, but much discussion of bringing a large, silver male Standard Poodle into our family came about. Brian has had Brittanys since and always thought a Standard Poodle would be a great upland game bird hunting partner for his Brittanys. It was very impressive. After alot of research and planning, bringing in our first standard poodle Gi Gi in and the many poodles that have followed, the kennel name, Marquis Diamond came to be. This name came to us as a result of many of our dogs that had "Diamond" in their registered names and the favorite cut in the precious stone for us is the MARQUIS cut. It just worked out that the full name, "Marquis Diamond" for our Standard Poodles was the right fit.
I would lose my AKC credentials if I ever let pet stores or a broker sell my poodles. I realize I live way out in the country, but if you are planning to go away for some time, I would love to pet sit your poodle s for you free of charge if you bring them to me. It would be my pleasure to see them again, and also for them to play with their parents and other friends here at Poodlepassion. Now you can learn how to groom your own poodle for free.
