My toy poodles

I used to breed Siamese and oriental short hair cats in the 1970s and 1980s, but when I started to breed Afghans I noticed that breeding and showing both dogs and cats did not work out well, and stopped breeding cats. After some years I felt I needed a small pet to take the place of  cats and bought my first toy poodle in 1991, soon after I had come home from Japan, where I had worked as a visiting scientist for 13 months.

My Afghans had been taken care of by other people during my absence. I wanted a toy poodle with a good temperament, and ended up with a bitch from Toyway Kennels, owned by Jouko Leiviskä. My first poodle, FIN Ch. Toyway Almost An Angel has an excellent temperament, and I therefore decided to have more small dogs.
