Top Standard Poodle Brood Bitch

20 All Breed Best in Shows (in 12 months)

Tasha is a poodle that change our lives and has an impactful influence on the poodle breed and continues to do so through her offspring today. Tasha had eye catching appeal as puppy and that continued through out her life, after Tasha came to us in 2002 she lived with us for the next 13 years. Tasha loved dog shows and combined with her eye catching and dynamic movement and her charismatic show attitude, she went on to attain heights other only dream about.

Our friend Debbie Cozart was talking with us at Poodle Club of America 2002, after the bitch judging day she told me she felt she had a bitch better than anything she saw at PCA. Debbie sent Tasha to us later that year. Once she arrived in was evident she was special, her first show was Tideland Poodle Club under Daniel Augustus, she won Best of Breed from the Open Class, her next show she won Group First under Betsey Leedy and the next day she finished her American championship with an All Breed Best in Show under Dorothy Dalton at a show with nearly 2000 entries, all wins from the Open class. Our friend Gina Wieser spoke with Zuleika Borges Torrealba about owning Tasha and this was the start of her career and the rejuvenation of Canil da Maya standard poodles. Tasha's career was sensational and provided us with many highs but her greatest attribute was her producing ability. She produces a half dozen Best in Show winners but more importantly influential stud dogs and broods that came down from Tasha. Her first breeding to CH Ale Kai Mikimoto on Fifth produced just one puppy - Best in Show Ch Anastasia da Maya ( see page). Tasha produced only 19 puppies in her life 14 champions ( many champions in multiple countries ) and 6 Best in Show winners, Poodle Club of America winners. Tasha was a fantastic mother, she adored her puppies. She never had a sick day in her life until about 2 weeks before she passed away 2 weeks shy of 15 years old. Tasha was a once in lifetime dog.

Best in Show wins under Anne Rogers Clark, Michelle Billings, Edd Bivin, James Reynolds, Helen Lee James, Jane Forsyth,
