In Loving Memory
On March 8, 2001, I
had some time to kill before picking up my husband after
I had wanted a Standard
Poodle for some time but with my newly dx'd cancer,
But there she was.
In Run #7, in the very back. Frantic, stinky, matted, peeing all
Pootie, aka Hannah, left today and went to the Rainbow Bridge.
15 years of having
Hannah in my life was one of the greatest gifts ever.
She changed my focus and my future. She set the course for me to get involved
with dogs again and is the dog who made Highfalutin' Poodles a reality. My world
has been shaken, my heart broken and the loss is immeasurable. But I am so blessed
to have found her and shared these years with her.
Until we meet again.
Our beloved boy, Tucker,
left us after 13 wonderful years
together. He was the head of the gang, the owner of our
hearts. You simply could not wake up without a smile when
you saw that face in the morning. A happy, funny boy who
was loved by all who knew him.
The depth of our loss could fill the oceans.

If love could have saved you, you would have lived forever.

UKC CH. ALAMAN HIGHFALUTIN' HOLLYWOOD
Our wonderful boy
went to the Rainbow Bridge yesterday.
We are completely stunned and heartbroken.
He was at home with his Mom, Carolyn, it was very
sudden and he did not suffer.
my first Standard show dog. He has been the "face"
of Highfalutin' Poodles since our webpage went up many years ago.
He loved the shows as a puppy, got a couple of AKC points and
also his UKC Championship. But when I took him back out for shows
after he grew all that big hair, he decided the whole show scene was
not for him and that was that! Off came the hair!!
He was the Daddy
to three beautiful litters here, his babies are all
grown up and doing great. He produced two AKC Champions, Brie
and Zak. He went on to be a wonderful Service Dog for Robin for
many years. When he was retired from that job he became the
adored companion to Carolyn and her Mom. He will be terribly
missed, he was a smart, sweet, loving boy who brought much joy
to those in his life.

The Highfalutin' family is heartbroken over
the loss of sweet Phinn.
We share the grief with his parents, Karen and Wendell, and his
Phinn contracted AIHA/IMT (Auto Immune Mediated
Anemia/Immune Mediated Thrombocytopenia). Phinn and his parents
fought a good fight, but the assault on his young system was simply
too much for him to overcome.
Everything possible was done to try to get
Phinn through this, and to
reach a positive outcome. We want to thank our Highfalutin' families,
and our many dog world friends and hundreds of total strangers, who
supported Phinn in his fight. The outpouring of concern, the warm words
of care, the prayers, emails, and phone calls from all over the world,
were very much appreciated by all of us.
Phinn's journey was posted on our Facebook
and, as of this date, has been viewed by more than 15,000 people.
His life was cut short by something we all do to protect our animals.
VACCINATIONS. Please read Phinn's story. He is one of hundreds who
have been lost due to vaccine induced conditions. The following links are
worth reading by anyone who wants to understand better
how to protect your pet.
Phinn's parents and I always felt that Phinn
was a gift and that his
presence here had special meaning and purpose. Perhaps his journey
and his passing, will help to educate others about Vaccinations, and
create a dialogue between owners and their Vets about what really
is best for their companion.
well, sweet Phinn.
You have made a difference.
