"Hi Lina,

Just wanting to say Happy Birthday to Litter "C"!! They are 4 years old today!
Maddie has been a true gift for us - she is a happy girl 100% of the time - she is friendly to everyone and loves other dogs. There is no aggression towards people or other dogs - she might bark initially but always friendly and happy to greet them. She makes us laugh all the time with some clownish behavior and seems to be happiest when getting us all to smile at her!
Her favorite thing is to play with her ball - she loves to go get it and bring it back - she could play that 500 times in a row and still not be tired. She also has a excellent search and recover ability - we hide the ball or a toy while she sits in one room - then tell her to find it. She uses her nose & mouth and catches it's scent and will find it every time ! It's really fascinating and she is so proud of herself when she returns with the object. She loves to go for walks and we are always stopped by people asking about her and admiring her beauty as well as her 'high- stepping' prance!! She really stops traffic sometimes! I think we got a natural show dog here!! I noticed you didn't have a show dog out of Litter C - I think Maddie should of been one.
She is 11 pounds at last doctor 's visit (1 month ago) and stands 13 1/2 " from the top of her shoulders to the floor. Her coat is thick and still jet black. There is a bit of brown in her little moustache and maybe a hint of grey in her beard under her chin - otherwise she is coal black .
She has been raised by my husband and I and loves us both but I'd have to say that I'm definitely her favorite. She is a Mama's girl. She is glued to my side 98% of the time. I knit a lot and she lays beside me or on my lap with the strands of yarn running across her head and body ... She 's never minded or even tried to fuss with it.

Anyway just wanted to give you an update on our Maddie on her birthday and thank you again for choosing us to be her family. We are blessed to have her and tell her everyday!
Hope all the other "litter c's" are as wonderful and happy as our "Maddie Girl".
Happy 4TH Birthday "Litter C "!
Sue Smith

''Hi Lina....
Just thinking about our Maddie and how lucky we are to have her....
Can't believe she's already 5!!! Happy Birthday Litter "C"!

Happy Holidays from Maddie! Always has a ball with her at all times! :)

Black Pearl Spanish Caravan (Sheba) went to her new home in Newbury Park, CA with Marian and Colin Elliott. February 28th ,2010

Marian and Colin -about Sheba ...."She is lively, but is learning things very fast. She will now sit on command, goes outside to go potty, walks well around the block on the leash, and is learning to fetch and drop a ball on command. Sheba's very people-oriented and greets everyone enthusiatically. She loves body contact, cuddles, and calms down quickly when she is given tummy rubs! "

Black Pearl Rider On The Storm(Hershey) went to his new home in Danvill, CA with Jule and Lee Smith. March 7th ,2010

This is what Jule and Lee want to share with the world about their new family member .... "Hershey is a wonderful puppy and is bringing a lot of fun into our lives! He has a perfect temperament, is very smart and such a quick learner, and will be a very important part of our family for years to come! Many thanks to Lina and her daughter Sasha for all the love and care they have given our little Black Pearl - he is a treasure!"

"Hershey is a very athletic dog, loves to play 'tennis' with balls and is an outstanding retriever. He could play the game for hours, and has a great enthusiasm for finding hidden toys. He'd be a wonderful 'search and rescue' dog!

He is very loving and really wants to do all he can to please us, and listens to us when we ask him to do something. So intelligent!

Hershey is still coal black with a tiny number of white hairs here and there. I keep both pups well-groomed and they always get admiring looks when we go out, with lots of oohs and awhs about how beautiful they are. Hershey is about 22 lbs. now and appx. 17 1/2" at the shoulder - quite a handsome boy with his regal, show-quality looks. His long legs, proud carriage and fine headline set him apart from many poodles you see around. I prefer to groom H&S with closely shaved faces, trimmed body hair and poms on head/tails and ankles. They absolutely love to be brushed and 'prettied up' and enjoy their baths. Over time I have learned the tricks needed to clip the faces and feet with minimum effort and stress.

I wanted to let you know some details about how Hershey has grown up to be a wonderful pup (he and Snickers will always be our puppies!) and addition to our family. "The Kids" bring us a lot of joy and companionship.

Jule, Lee, Hershey and Snickers


05/27/2014 -"Hershey is well and sends a big woofie hug! BTW, he has a new game, catching the frisbee! Turns out he is quite good at catching one when we go to the dog park, has great eye-to-mouth contact and loves to run fast and leap up to catch it! He is very athletic and this is a great way for him to run off all that energy while having a great time! "


Yes, Hershey is 5 years old today, can you believe it? What a beautiful boy he is, we thank you every day for such a wonderful addition to our family. Hershey and Snickers are well and happy and make us happy, too!

Lee and Jule Smith


Hershey recently turned 6 years old and Snickers will be 6 next week. My how the years have flown! Both doggies are doing very well and are such great companions (our 'kids' as you know!). We still take them everywhere and recently took them on a road trip to Arizona (the attached was taken on that trip). They traveled in the van with us, over 2200 miles, and were great travelers! I still groom them, keeping them looking their best, and we always get admiring remarks about how beautiful they are. Hershey is still coal black, with a few white hairs on his face and a stray one here and there, but that is about it. I mention this because I recall you strive to breed for good color and Hershey is!

December 2018 *************************

Hershey will be 9 years old this week, with Snickers right behind him in 2 weeks! Both of them are in very good health and the happy guys they have always been. Still going with us everywhere and loving their ball and rope toy games, as well as their daily walks.

Attached are a few photos of the boys in their Christmas hats and sweaters. They love to show off their pretty poodle trims and get lots of attention whenever we go out. Many thanks for bringing Hershey into our lives, he and Snickers are such beautiful and loving 'kids'!
