Lina is beautifully constructed and very true to her breed standard. She has a gorgeous outline with proper proportion, outstanding front and strong rear, correct carriage, never puts a foot wrong, and loves to show! If that is not enough, Lina is as stunning on the inside as she is on the outside. She never has a bad day and is incurably happy. Not unlike her mother, everyone is her friend, she always remembers a face, and she loves children.

She has been shown to absolute perfection by Sarah Drake. We are incredibly appreciative of her great talent and professional ethics. 

Lina started her show career in the U.S. obtaining both of her majors from the 6-9 puppy class. Many thanks to Brian Meyer and Doug Gaudin for appreciating Lina at such a young age.

In Canada, Lina finished her championship quickly with multiple Puppy Groups and Best Puppy in Shows and a Group 1 from the 9-12 class. 

In 2017 only a month after being put into pattern at 13 months of age, Lina headed down to the Kalamazoo Cluster to gain 9 more points with multiple breed wins and 2 very competitive Group 2nd’s. Thank you, Kim Ramey-Leblanc and Doug Gaudin. She finished her American Championship on her next visit under Alex Zee from Taiwan.

Her first weekend as an adult special and only her 2nd weekend as a special in Canada, she finished her Canadian Grand championship by winning a group 1, 2 and 3. By 15 months of age she won her first Best in Specialty at the Ottawa Valley Poodle Specialty under Kristi Francis. Sparingly shown the rest of 2017 she won 13 groups and 10 other placements and finished the year as #6 Standard Poodle.
