Penny and I have been 'poodle people' since the early 70's and our dogs live with us as our children did. There was actually some "sibling rivalry" when the kids were little... and not so little.  We purchased our first poodle because our oldest son was allergic to pet dander. We have always had dogs in our lives and we could not imagine living without one.

We began our search for a dog and found the poodle to be our dog of choice. Penny raised and showed German Shepherds and I always had English Springer Spaniels.  We were used to a larger dog and raising 3 active boys we felt a larger dog stood the best chance of survival. Back then, without the Internet, we made a lot of phone calls and put out "feelers" for a reputable breeder. Finally, after much research and a lot of phone calls we found our first poodle, and her name was "Licorice", a beautiful black standard puppy from the "Wycliffe" line out of Canada. Fortunately, we had a healthy one and she was with us for over 13 years. She was my grooming experiment, upset with the so-called groomers in our area, I purchased my first pair of clippers, a grooming table, scissors and a grooming book and from then on it was history. After a lot of mistakes and a lot of practice, I got pretty good at it, although at the time surely Licorice would have had a few comments to make. Thank God she couldn't talk!!!!

To make a long story short, we are "poodle people", we love the breed and could not ever be without a poodle in our lives.  Breeding dogs is our hobby, not a livelihood.  We both have occupations, we are not a commercial kennel and we are most certainly not a "backyard breeder".  I am a remodeling contractor and Penny is the Oncology Nurse Navigator for Gynecologic Oncology at the Northside Hospital Cancer Institute here in Atlanta, Georgia.  We spend almost every evening "working on dogs," and believe me it's another full time job.  We do it because we love it!
