To say we are thrilled that this mating lived up to our wildest dreams is an understatement.
In limited ring appearances, Twink was Best Bred by Exhibitor in Show at the Heart of America Poodle Specialty the day after Poodle Club of America under none other than Mr. Frank Sabella.
Her next appearance had her winning BEST IN SHOW from the Bred By Exhibitor to garner her first Canadian points under Dr. Gail Forsythe.
Her next American appearance had her winning Reserve Best In Show in an entry of 1500 plus, again from the Bred By Exhibitor class under Mr. Eugene Blake.
Twink will make a few select appearances to close out 2017 including the World Dog show
Who knows what the future will hold.

Nine Health Benefits of Feeding Pumpkin to our Dogs

Here are nine health benefits of feeding pumpkin to your dogs this fall and all year long:
1. Pumpkin is not only tasty, but it's a wonderful source of fiber for your pet. That makes it an ideal nutrient for a puppy or adult having problems with constipation.  

2. Alternatively, pumpkin flesh contains soluble fiber, which helps slow digestion and manage diarrhea by absorbing water. 
3. Pumpkin also contains Vitamin A, which is important for vision health.
4. It also contains Vitamin C, which boosts the immune system. 
5. Save the seeds this year when you carve your pumpkin and grind them up to add to your dog's dinner. They're good for joint health, their coat, and your dog will love the taste.
6. If your plump puppy, or adult need to lose some weight adding pumpkin to their food, introduces extra fiber which can help them feel full for longer. 

7Pumpkin slows the aging process with its abundant antioxidant beta-carotene.
8. Pumpkin is low in fat.
9. An amino acid in pumpkin seeds called cucurbitin is a reliable way to destroy internal parasites, and a natural way to maintain prostate gland health, treat inflamed bladder and stimulate male hormones ...

Behind the Scene

Name: Michelle Scott
Guelph, Ontario
Kennel name: Brielle
CKC Licensed All Breed Judge
1) If you could have another breed, what would it be?
We have been wanting a Dandie Dinmont Terrier for over a year.
2) How many shows a month do you attend, and how many dogs do you normally take?
I try to attend at least 2 shows a month when I’m not judging. We currently have nothing to show, but hope to be a little busier next year.
3) If you could only attend one "must do" show a year, what would it be?
Poodle Club of America National Specialty, for as long as I can remember.
4) Besides your dogs, do you have any other animals?
We used to have many animals when the kids were here, but now we only have one old cat. Now that we’re grandparents that may have to change! 
5) Name something that is on your "life" bucket list to do?  
I don’t have a bucket list. I take the day as it comes and face each challenge and opportunity with thoughtfulness and gratitude.
6) Would you like to see critiques at shows in North America?  
I would love to see critiques at North American shows! Exhibitors are kept in the dark about a judge’s decision, and a critique would help them understand what the judge is seeing. I would like to see a few shows designate a handful of breeds for each judge to critique to start with and the process could be fine tuned depending on how well it’s received. It will be a steep learning curve, but I think it would help our sport in the long run.
7) What is your favorite way to relax?
That would be laying in a hammock on a beach in Mexico, with a few good books.
8) What is your current 5 - year plan in dogs?
We’re not really breeding any more - I’m away a lot and Standard Poodles are a lot of work!  
9) Do you do pet grooming, or pet boarding for dogs you have bred, and do you have a commercial pet grooming and boarding business?
We have a grooming shop and will board client dogs. The bulk of our business is show dogs.
10) What breed or all breed clubs are you a member of?  
I am a life member of the CKC, President of Club VI, Ontario, and a member of the Scarborough Kennel Club.

CPR in Dogs

To many of us, our animals are part of the family, but would you know what to do if things went wrong?  Could you do even the most basic of things such as checking if your dog’s heart is still beating?  Would you know how often he should be taking a breath?  If there were a road traffic accident, would you freeze or give him the best chance of survival?
CPR is ONLY performed when the animal is not breathing, nor has a heartbeat.
If he DOES have a heartbeat but is NOT breathing, perform Artificial Respiration instead.
C = Cardio (heart)
P = Pulmonary (breathing/lungs)
R = Resuscitation (beating the heart and breathing for a third party to revive them)
CPR:  Where to place your hands?
Knowing where to place your hands during CPR for a dog is something that worries many people. We generally say aim for between the 4th-6th rib, but an easy way to get the “spot” is by lying the dog on his right side, feet pointing away from you and you kneeling at his back. Bend his front leg back and where the elbow touches the rib cage, this is pretty much where you want to be.

For a deep chested dog like a Ridgeback/Whippet/Greyhound etc, use this method and then aim about an inch further forwards towards the armpit.  This slight modification will make it even more effective for such breeds.

For a barrel chested dog, such as a bulldog, lay the dog on his back as you would a human and position your hand in the middle of the chest, on the breastbone above the point where the ribs meet.
How many hands should I use?

Medium or Large dog:
Use TWO hands, one on top of the other, with fingers interlocked

Small dog:
Use the heel of ONE hand

Tiny dog:
Use ONE hand around his ribcage applying pressure with the muscle at the base of your thumb.
Newborn pups (or even cats)
Hold around the ribcage as above, and squeeze pressing with your thumb pad only.
ONLY ever perform CPR on an animal that has no pulse.
30 chest compressions to every 2 breathes.
The speed of compressions is also now consistent with human CPR in that we aim for a rate of 100-120 beats per minute.
Before you commence the 30:2 compressions to breaths ratio sequence for a dog, remember to administer 5 good rescue breaths to top them up with oxygen before you start. There is no point in commencing compressions if there is no oxygen in the blood stream to transport!
Tilt the dog’s head back to straighten the airway and pull the tongue forward, right out of the mouth.  Now move the tongue to the side so that it slots out through the gap just behind the large fang tooth. Hold the dog around the muzzle with both hands, which will grip the tongue in place with the teeth and prevent it going back into the dog’s mouth.
Now breathe down the nostrils (for a very small dog you can put your mouth all the way around the nose and muzzle to ensure you do not breathe too hard).
Once your 5 breaths have gone in and you have seen the ribcage rise with each breath, you can then commence the 30:2 sequence.
Continue for 1 minute then stop to check for a pulse, breathing and signs of life.  If no signs are detected, continue for 2 minutes and recheck then another 2 minutes etc.  If there is no change after 20 minutes… Rainbow Bridge is calling.
While it is always preferable to administer the chest compressions with the dog lying on his right side so that the left side of his chest (and therefore his heart) is uppermost, CPR can still be done with the dog on
the other side too.
