One of the best Standard Poodles ever, CH Randenn Tristar Affirmation, has won her 100th all breed Best In Show. It came yesterday at the Olympia Dog Fanciers Association show in Elma WA with judge Linda Riedel making the award. Yes had picked up number 99 the day before under Lawrence Sinclair at the Olympia DFA’s first show of the weekend.

If you were lucky enough to see handler Timothy Brazier and Yes these past two years, you have that beautiful image burned into your memory. Blessed with a stunning head, beautiful coat, and glorious movement, she was breath taking every time she stepped in the ring. We are very lucky to have some of her appearances immortalized on video.

In addition to the BIS wins, Yes made memorable group wins at the 2008 AKC/Eukanuba National Championship and the 2009 Westminster shows. We extend our congratulations to breeders Dennis McCoy & Randy Garren, owners Toni and Martin Sosnoff, and handler Timothy Brazier.We tahnk then all for letting us share this magnificent girl these past three years.
