We started with one standard dog from Lake Cove Kennels, Ch. Lake Cove Sintaro Microbrew aka Mike and one standard bitch from Namel Kennels. Namel's truly a Lu Lu, lovingly called "Loser". Our kennel grew as we purchased poodles from the kennels like Ravendune Kennels and Keja Kennels. Our personal careers in the fire service grew and moved us from Cheney to Issaquah, Washington. After 15 years, we retired and returned to the east side of the state to Elk, Washington. We now have a small hobby kennel on 80 acres. The dogs have plenty of room to run and a pond for swimming.
