So far this year has started well. Lots of wonderful dogs to show and owners who have been very helpful. While Kay has experienced some setbacks with her knee, she is still actively showing and getting the job done. It is because of quality dogs to show, owners who put their faith in Kay, and assistants who work endlessly that Team Kaylen's remains successful. One must also note that the support received from fellow handlers, breeders and friends has also been a large part of the team's success.
After a beautiful showing at the Poodle Club of America National Specialty, we said goodbye to Louie- AM GCH Serekunda Only On Sunday, as he traveled back to his home in England. We are thankful to the Austin's for allowing Louie to stay with us while completing his championship and grand championship.
We also welcomed back Teeter, GCH Targa Talk About Kaylen's, who ended his show career at PCA. He will reside at Kaylen's until he travels to his new home where he is sure to be more loved and spoiled than ever!
Our youngest rising star, Solo, CH Kaylen's Once Upon A Time, made an impressive showing at the national considering he had not been out in the ring for a while. We look forward to what the future holds for this young dog.
Special thanks to Philip Langdon for handling Louie, Jason Lynn for handling Teeter, and Allie Cowie for handling Solo in the BIG specials ring at the national when Kay was unable to. We are extremely grateful and the dogs looked fabulous!
Not to be outdone for 2015 is our homebred champion Kahlua. The little hairless crested who is doing great big things. Kahlua took 2015 by storm and has remained in the top rankings since he hit the specials ring! His list of accomplishments speaks for itself and we are pleased to add two All Breed Best In Shows to that illustrious list. Kahlua turned 2 this past April and we are looking forward to what the remainder of 2015 has in store for this beautiful young dog. Simply put, we feel he is a breeders dream.
Here is looking forward to the rest of the year with great dogs, great friends, and great times. Wishing you all the BEST!
