Percy

I got my first Miniature Poodle in January 1989 - Sigma Chi's White Delight, "Percy".  He would become the basis for more generations of wonderful Poodles - he taught me about LIFE, LOVE and all things POODLE.  This site is dedicated to him....

A consumate showman, Percy loved an audience, whether it be at a Superdog show, or demo at a fall fair or running an agility course.  He wowed adults and children alike with his high jumping at Superdog shows in Ontario and Quebec, including the Royal Winter Fair during the 1990's.  He could easily clear 48 inches with his 15 inch frame.  I used to call him my "mountain goat" he was always finding a way to be higher than everyone else.

Field work was his destiny.  He overcame obstacles in order to get the bird.  Percy came to field work late in his performance life; he was 8 years old when he was first introduced to a pigeon.  He was a capable swimmer and loved to work for ducks, pigeons and pheasant.  He would carry a large duck as far as he could - at PCA in 2001 he proudly showed off his prize to the gallery!

Truly a once in a lifetime dog Percy was my soul mate and companion.  Percy introduced me to a whole world of dog related events.  He was always three steps ahead of me. He was brash, solid and mouthy when he wanted to be.  Percy was my first Poodle and opened a door to a breed of dog I had shied away from based on their looks.  Now I will always have a Poodle in my life and to make it even better all the Poodles I now have are related to Percy in some way or other.
