Excitement Unleashed: Anticipating the Arrival of Katie and EZ’s Poodle Pups!

Dear Poodle Enthusiasts and Forest Lakes Families,

We are thrilled to share the exciting news of an upcoming litter that promises to produce pups that are nothing short of extraordinary! Our beloved Forest Lakes American Champion, UKC Multiple Best in Show, and Multiple Reserve Best in Show Ruby Grand Champion, Katie, is set to welcome a litter of exceptional puppies sired by the remarkable Best in Show, Multiple Reserve Best in Show, and Best in Specialty Show American Champion and Multiple Reserve Best in Show Canadian Grand Champion Litilann’s WinterGarden Style N’Eaze, fondly known as EZ.

EZ is no stranger to the spotlight, currently holding the 2023 prestigious title of #1 Poodle in Canada across all varieties and ranking as the impressive #3 Non-Sporting dog. At the last dog show of 2023, EZ brought home four Group 1s, a Reserve Best in Show and a BEST IN SHOW! His accolades speak volumes about his outstanding qualities and the promise he brings to our breeding program.

Katie, a shining star in her own right, boasts an impressive track record earning her AKC championship in just 3 weekends, her UKC Emerald and then Ruby Gemstones with 2 Best in Show and 2 Reserve Best in Show Awards, 25 Best of Breed awards (her first of which was at 8 months of age), and 19 Group placements (five Group 1, six Group 2, five Group 3 and three Group 4). Even taking time off for her AKC career and having a litter, Katie finished at UKC’s #5 Standard Poodle for 2023. She is not only beautiful and showy but athletic as well, with titles in FastCAT and Precision Coursing. And last but not least, Katie has undeniably proven her sound temperament in all circumstances, illustrated by her amazing drive and off switch and demonstrated by her Trick Dog and Canine Good Citizen titles.

Anticipate an exquisite blend of genetics from fabulous bloodlines, resulting in black and white puppies that are visually stunning and embody superior conformation and temperament. Our commitment to ethical breeding practices goes beyond the norm, ensuring the health and well-being of each precious pup.

As preservationists, we are dedicated to creating healthy, well-balanced poodles with proper structure, and this upcoming litter is a testament to that commitment. We also understand the importance of temperament in our dogs, especially for those who go on to become service and therapy dogs, a role many of our pups have embraced with great success.


Katie’s OFA

We invite you to embark on this journey with us as we eagerly await the arrival of these extraordinary poodle pups. Stay tuned for updates on the pregnancy, the birth, and the subsequent growth and development of this promising litter. Your support means the world to us, and we can’t wait to share these precious moments with our extended Forest Lakes family.

Thank you for being a part of our passion for poodles!

Warm regards,

Michele and the Standard Poodles of Forest Lakes Team
