Then, about ten years later, I got in touch with 'Solnes' kennel in Norway
and I bought my first true apricot colored dwarf dog: EUGENIOS PER SOLNES EVERYWHERE - a so called 'red'. He was a crack:
where ever he appeared people collapsed. And he passed on his beautiful color. I made him up to a multi champion - only one
judge disqualified him because of his dark color. The color of this dog came from American bloodlines. I started to
read the 'Poodle Review' and 'Poodle Variety'. And there I found new informations and ideas how to realize my dream.
Meanwhile I owned my first standard poodle bitch CHAMPAGNE D'OR IVONNE
- she was a medium apricot and faded to almost a cream. When she was 4 years old I decided to breed her and flew to the
States where my friend had seen a lovely colored apricot dog: ODYSSEY'S RISING SUN. And with this breeding I
imported the red standard poodles to Europe. The result was a litter of 7 puppies: 2 light apricot, 3 apricot and 2 red.
I sold the red bitch PICCADILLY'S FLORIDA GOLD to a friend. She bred her once and got GOLDEN AKIM VON BRIWEHBU
and GOLDEN ASKIA VON BRIWEHBU, both red. Akim appears in many pedigrees. since he was used quite often because of his beautiful
color. Out of the same litter I showed PICCADILLY'S FLORIDA SAMBA, a light colored bitch. She became a multi champion but
was never bred.
