Tivin Standard Poodles

A Higher Standard of Excellence

Grand Ch Tivin Into the Night

(BIS Ch Ale Kai A Walk In the Park On Fifth x Tivin In the Sky with Diamonds)

Date of birth: April 30, 2009

Micah Is a stunning boy with a happy go lucky personality.  He has excellent structure reflected in his easy extended and smooth gait.  Combining the wonderful qualities of his sire and dam, he is the bright future for Tivin poodles.  Carrying on the legacy of our black boys, Micah has excelled in the show ring, garnering three 3 point majors in one weekend of showing as a puppy.  Micah finished his championship, took a trip to the Westminster Kennel Club dog show where he showed beautifully and then returned to the ring to finish his Grand Championship in short order!  Micah lives with his co-owner, Sandy Talbot, her husband Doug, various cats, and his doggy "brother" Nathan and "sister" Leah.
