a 69-pound lap dog and stands 24.75” at the shoulders. She was
purchased to be a companion dog while the others were away for hunting
or competitions, but her drive to retrieve lead us to field training her
at 1 year old. She has earned her SHR (Started Hunting Retriever) title
in UKC and her JH (Junior Hunter) title in AKC as well as the Poodle
Club of America WC and WCX (Working Certificate and Working Certificate
Excellent) titles. She moved smoothly through all of her training
including the water work. She is a very graceful and confident swimmer.
has visited nursing homes since she was 10-weeks old. She is very
gentle and loving to the residents. She is loved by everyone who meets
her. She loves to hang out on your lap or sit quietly by while you
read. She is a very good citizen in the house. The squirrels and
rabbits in the area are not so fond of her.
coloration varies by her clipping. When her hair is longer, she has a
caramel color cast over her cream coat. The camera picks up more color
than does the human eye. She is the color of antique pearls with a
slight blush to them. There is much discussion regarding the coloration
of poodles and the variation. Pearl has chocolate points, eye rims,
nose and lips. She is a gorgeous girl with a beautiful top line, tail
set, and structure. She came from two brown international champions.
look like a girly girl, but she has successfully completed a couple of
110-yard water retrieves with a 40-foot angle entry up a hill for
40-yard retrieve in heavy cover and back again. That was half of a JH
test in KY.
