CSPC Specialty Results

Our 2017 89th Specialty was held Friday, September 22.  Many thanks to all who helped out with it.  Click here for CSPC 2017 Specialty Results

A few highlights — The show catalog memorial page had the longest list of treasured companions crossing the Rainbow Bridge that I can remember.   Ages ranged from 13 years to 16 years which bodes well for the health of the breed and the care we take with our poodles.  We had a great obedience entry with participation in Beginner Novice all the way to Utility.  Think about training your poodle for next year!         TG
