During the devastating fires in California, 9 poodles that came from us ended up in shelters. Because they had their Avid micro-chips, the shelters we able to contact us, so that we could track down their owners. Some of these poodles where far over 5 yrs. of age, and the owners had never submitted their information to Avid Pet Trac, thus it took a number of days to get a couple of them back to their owners. I have asked time & time again for all of you to remember to send the form in, as it would have been a lot quicker for those poodles to get home if that simple form was taken care of in the beginning. PLEASE, PLEASE check that you have sent it in. One of these poodles could have been yours in the shelter! For those of you who can't remember what the form looked like, here is what you need to look for in your paperwork.

On the lighter side, in June some of our poodles were used for an advertising campaign for the nightclub 'Light' at the Bellagio Hotel. 'Pink & White Poodles' were featured in all of their ads & billboards. Well the campaign caused such havic because of the wording on one of the billboards, that read ' My bitches & I will be there' even here in Las Vegas where you can see showgirls being almost naked on billboards / entertainment guides, sexy men & women in all types of ads,its not proper to call a female dog a 'bitch' .go figure. Anyway the campaign did attract national & international news because the one billboard was taken down and an apology was given to the public by the hotel for using the word 'bitch'! Here are a couple of the ads that were part of the campaign. Got love those pink poodles!!!!

Remember to stop by the Extended Family page (oops now pages) of your website. There are a lot of pictures that many of you have sent to us and hope that you all enjoy the.

Happy Holidays & all the best for 2004 to all of you!

Marie & Karl Hedeman
