What started out as a search for a small house pet that did not shed any hair has turned into a passion.
After a couple of attempts to buy a toy poodle I ended up with a Miniature Poodle named Allie, Luachra Wish Upon A Start who was born the day we said goodbye to our first Dobermann hence her registered name. Allie hated the show ring and became the prima donna of the house hold which she ruled with an iron fist.
Not long after came Barbie Ch Chapford Dark Victory she was supposed to be only with us for some training with our toddler Erin and then sent onto New Zealand to have a show career and help improve their gene pool, well she moved in and never left we fell head over heels for this opinionated, destructive creature and she lived with us until her passing at nearly 14.
Barbie became our foundation bitch for our current toy poodle breeding program and is sorely missed she had one litter for our kennels which produced Elvis Ch Elluje Viva Las Vegas and Audrey Ch Elluje What a Wind up, you can read more about both these dogs on other pages.
We are concentrating on silver and white toys and can find it very challenging to produce silvers due to the very small gene pool but keep taking one step at a time producing high quality happy healthy puppies on this journey.
Our first toy poodle was the beautiful "Barbie"
Ch Chapford Dark Victory
Very Sadly we said goodbye to Barbie she will be greatly missed but forever in our hearts. 8.6.99-5.4.13
Above is a photo of our Blue Toy Poodle Bitch "Barbie" Aust Ch Chapford Dark Victory, bred by Mark Chapman of Chapford Kennels. Barbie is a PRCD type PRA Pattern A. Barbie is the foundation bitch for our current breeding program and has excelled as a producer with only having 2 litters
Barbie is the mother of "Elvis" Ch Elluje Viva Las Vegas, "Audrey" Ch Elluje What a Wind up, both by Aus,NZ & Can Ch Tinkilees Roll the Dice (Imp Can) PRCD Pattern A.
Elvis is a Multi In Group & In Show winner. Who has consistently won at Royals & Poodle Speciality Shows held in Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Queensland with Classes in Show, Challenges and Reserve Challenges.
Barbie is also the grandmother of "Costa" Ch Elluje Ready to Rumble, "Rhea" Aust Ch Elluje Wild Child "Mini" Aust Ch Elluje So What & "Larry" Lefay Living It Up and the great grandmother of "Eva" Elluje Born to Be Wild "Finn" Elluje Walk on the Wild Side & "Yoko" Elluje Sunny Side Up Off.
Barbie has been a joy to own and show with her unflappable temperament and cheeky personality and has been a great asset to the Toy Poodle breed. I can't thank Mark enough for this special old girl.
Then came her gorgeous daughter "Audrey"

Erin exhibited Audrey from the time she was 7 years old and titled her, all 100 points on her own even beating some very stiff adult competition, we are very proud of Erin's efforts in the ring she has also handled smooth and long coat Chihuahua's, a Borzoi, Afghan and a Harrier Hound, she has also exhibited a smooth Chihuahua called Hardy, Aust Ch Espero Mexican Mafia and trying her hand at Junior Handlers.
