Dam of Z litter, Tiara Karisma, foreground 10 days before pup's
arrival. She is pictured in a historical continental trim
depicting the 15th Century archer's retriever. Archer played
by Kirk Reed. Kennel Maid (there's a real stretch) played by
breeder, Julie Borst. Puppy with maid played by herself,
"Portia" of the X litter (Xport) and nanny to the Y and
Sire: Arbait-Zarembo at 4 yrs
in 1996, Toronto, Canada. Rembo and family left Latvia
(Russia) in 1992. Arbait-Zarembo was a medal winner as a
puppy before leaving his homeland. His pedigree is a welcome
addition to the Tiara poodles' line. We hope to go forward
with several of his offspring born here. If we can't find an
unrelated black dog with which to breed to that will produce under
6% COI, perhaps we can breed one some day. Thanks to Rembo, his
owners and his agent for this opportunity.
The Russian connections have arrived and are beautiful:
Nike had FIVE - 3 females and 2 males born June 20th and are ready to
go on August 9, 2000.
Kelly just had her SEVEN puppies during the wee hours on July 8, 2000
and has 5 females and 2 males. Ready to go August 28, 2000.
Puppies sold on AKC and/or UKC
limited registration, US $1700.00. These are finest quality family
Rembo (the sire) is very proud and has sent his good wishes from
Toronto, CN to the ladies and their lovely pups. I have reserved a
male and female from each litter to go forward with in my breeding
There are many beautiful puppies, 12 in all and still looking very black.
Nike's litter, Tiara "Y," have the eyes open and they are
trying to trot around. Kelly's litter, Tiara "Z," have
just been born and mother and babies are resting nicely. Feeding raw
meat and vegetables along with bones throughout the gestation, lactating
and weaning will contribute to an exceptional puppy. The coats are
already very luxurious and each puppy is gaining weight beautifully.
Socialization practices have already started and basic housetraining steps
will be implemented at 3 1/2 weeks of age. I currently change the
towels in their nests three times per day. This practice helps them
to want to stay clean in the near future when they will have a choice.
I know, picture time! Watch the website. Speaking of time, all
puppies are identified and times of births have been recorded. The
Personality Profile is to be conducted in birth order as usual.
On the light side, Portia and I have a great time playing with each puppy
and handling (well, I handle -- she licks) them each day. My
pick of the "X" litter, "Portia," is baby sitting on
occasions for the "Y" litter and is adorable with them.
She is now 3 months old and very excited about all the puppy action here
in my office. It is a very sweet and dear time. On the
"heavy" side, tails have all been docked of sufficient (long)
length to balance with the profile of the high neck carriage.
Someday . . . we may not be doing this . .. but, at this time we are
continuing this tradition.
Please visit when you may have the opportunity. My next litter is
planned to be bred in January with puppies available in March 2001.
When Tiara announces a litter, if you are sincerely interested, and
have already talked personally with Julie Borst, you then mail check for
$1700.00 for each puppy desired (sorry no multiple purchase discounts).
This money is refundable up to 48 hours after acquisition of the puppy for
any reason. The purchase by you at this time of announcement or
shortly thereafter, is necessary to remove the particular sex and aged pup
from the available selection. Exact selection is not determined
until the Puppy Personality Profile. Those decisions will be made on
a first paid, first selection process. Only exception, will be
families with small children. In those cases, the puppy will be selected
for them by the tester, Marjorie Hudson and myself. The profiles or
"temperament tests" will be held in Escondido, CA (46 miles N.E.
of the birthplace here in La Jolla).
The Tiara "Y" litter Puppy Personality Profile is planned
for Wednesday August 9, 2000 & the Tiara "Z"
litter is planned for Sunday August 27, 2000. All new owners
are invited to attend. Visitors may attend with permission of the
Nike, Kelly, Portia and the puppies
