Thank you for the wonderful poodle
Dear Jacquie and Ken,
many times I've written to you in my head to thank you for the wonderful dog you gave me. Just now I looked you up online and having found you I must write!
You sold us our dear Reilly (Keja's Iron Will Reilly's Luck) in January of 1997. He was born 11/11/96. Kenny was his brother and Fiona and Leo were his parents. Then a few months later we got to meet you in the middle of California's Central Valley.
He has been the greatest! Now he is 13 and a half and people can't believe he's that old. I'm attaching a picture of him at the groomer's on 4/30/2010.
For the past three years he has had a brother, Liam, who is a Borzoi. They get along beautifully and Liam has added some zest back into Reilly's life.
Reilly has had the perfect Standard Poodle temperament, easy-going, great with children. In his old age he is getting more stubborn about getting his own way, but never disagreeable. He has gotten somewhat deaf and has a little trouble with his hind end, which Duramaxx seems to help some. However he loves taking his 0.7 mile (round trip) walk to his 80-year-old friend Ginger's house. Ginger gives him treats.
My girls are grown up now and out of the house, but they both want Standard Poodles when they are in a position to have a dog.
I am so grateful to you for the wonderful breeding that went in to Reilly. He is a joy.
Thank you so much!
