Dilquin Standard Poodles
Am/Can Ch Coronado Espree Unbridled TP RN CGN "Levi"
Levi was very balanced and correct, He truly exemplified "unbridled" with his joy of life and his sweet mischievous behavior. He passed his excellent coat texture, strong rear, and wonderful temperament to his offspring.
Levi finished his Canadian career very quickly with his breeder/owner June Thompson (Coronado Poodles) at the helm.
He made a quick 5 week trip down to California and accomplished his American Championship with 3 majors one of which was at the San Diego Poodle Club Specialty.
Levi and I spent many enjoyable hours learning new tricks, working on his rally and obedience, and snuggling on the couch.
Levi earned his Rally Novice title and obtained two of the three legs required to earn both his Rally Advance and his Companion Dog title.
He also certified as a St. Johns Ambulance Pet Therapy Dog and children’s pet therapy dog. Levi enjoyed his visits to the Red Deer Nursing Home, the Red Deer Hospital Pediatrics Department, and helping children read at the Red Deer library.
In the middle of his performance career, Levi decided to eat a baby Kong, it took 2 surgeries and several years for him to recover and by that time Levi was ready to retire.
At the age of 11, Levi took on a new role in the house, mentoring the babies and teaching them all the important poodle things in life, how to check out counters, dig holes to China, and find the best bed to curl up in (usually mom’s).
Sadly, I had to say goodbye to Levi, on August 21, 2015. Fortunately, I see him every day in his children, grandchildren and greatgrandchildren.
