President’s Message:

i hope everyone had an excellent holiday season. Seems impossible in just a few months we will all be together again in Salisbury at the national.

This will be my last President’s letter, as my term on the board is over. i was thinking about the past 20 years of PCa and what has been accomplished while i have been on the board. i was there when the foundation was formed. The foundation was presented to the board by Jody Wahlig. i was President when we voted to move the show indoors. my husband, gene, was show chairman for many years and was chairman for the first indoor show. I have seen the health issues of Poodles made public and action taken to eradicate them. i have seen the growth of our performance events with the board’s ap- proval. how exciting to see the Poodles working both in WC-WCX and the hunt trials. i was present for the birth of our illustrated standard, both full sized and condensed, both of which are currently in the process of being up- dated. We now have an updated Code of ethics. i have been there for several printings of volumes of Pia. Thank you very much betsey leedy. We now have a super web page where anyone can have access to learn about Poodles. We have a great newsletter, Poodle Papers, available on line for everyone to read. a really big thank you to leslie newing for all her dedicated work on both of these. leslie is assisted on the web by mia dibenedetto, who has been a great help to keeping the web site updated. Poodle Papers has been nominated for a dog Writer’s of america award. Well-done leslie! hal Kinne answers all the email inquiries from the web-- he has done this well for many years. hal was the person who created our original website many years ago. Then we were fortunate to have lisa Croft elliot update the site for us. We have been active in working with groups to help with the anti dog legisla- tion. We now have a Poodle Club of america rescue organization chaired by Sally Poindexter. This is a very important part of our responsibility to the breed. (There will be more information about this in the news letter) Sadly through the last 20 years we have lost many friends and icons of the breed. They are missed but always remembered. it is so good to see new people involved with the breed and we are fortunate to have many dedicated Poodle breeders that will protect our breed.

enough on looking back. as everyone knows, we have changed our show date to accommodate exhibitors because of the airline embargo on shipping after may 15th. We are hoping for nice weather for our performance Poodles. our audience for these events grows every year and so does our entry. if you haven’t had the opportunity to see these Poodles work in the field and water please try to be there this year.
