At our Holt Renfrew Exclusive Lock Into Paris Fashion Show on November 7 (the first event of our J’Aime Paris Festival), we’ll have some special guests gracing our runway! Victoria Tomblin of Epique Poodles will be bringing in Mother-Daughter duo Beezleigh and Nina – two fabulous French poodles that will strut their stuff! Check out Victoria’s description of these canine fashionistas below!
Beezleigh (Registered Name: Epique Don’t Stop Me Now) was born in June and is still a puppy. Beezleigh is the sweetest and calmest puppy – she’s smart and willing to please. At 12 weeks old she competed in the fun match at the Poodle Club of Alberta Specialty, where she came in second. She will start her show career in January when she’s six months old. Her favourite thing is her stuffed bear and dried liver treats. Her best friend is my 22-month-old daughter. They love each other so much.
Nina (Registered Name: Ch Onnalee Larkspur Tet A Tet CGN RN) is Beezleigh’s Mom. Now four years old, Nina first became a champion at seven months, after only three weekends of showing. She has done very well competing in Rally Obedience, earning her Rally Novice title and now working on her Advanced title. Nina is also a Canine Good Neighbour and frequently visits residents in nursing homes. She has done very well at herding and loves agility. Her favourite things are riding with the top down in the convertible and long walks along the Bow River pathways. Most regulars on the paths and businesses on the way know her by name.
I have chosen these two as they have the best temperaments for a fashion show. I think they will willingly walk with confidence with anyone and not get too excited to handle by a novice.
