Having served in the Armed Services, discharged with a Purple Heart, I became interested in the wide range of dog health and breeding. I have spent a half century on establishing Ale Kai Kennel, white and black standard poodles, compiling a breeding program that has satisfied many owners.
The American Kennel Club has bestowed on me the first AKC Breeder of the Year 2002 and also, the AKC Lifetime Achievement Award. I am a member of the Poodle Club of America and have provided the illustrations for the Poodle Standard.
I have and will continue to dedicate my life to the health, temperament and beauty of Ale Kai Poodles.
If you wish to see poodles representing the history of Ale Kai Kennels, they can be found in library books written by Anna Nicholas, Mrs Hoyt and Mackey Irich.
