This is our beautiful Standard Poodle, Buffy. Actually, she is Buffy number III. Our relationship with Cabryn Kennels and Carolyn O'Rourke, goes back to the early 1970's when we bought our first Buffy. Though the years we have purchased five Standards from Cabryn. Each dog was unique in personality, but shared the high-quality standards of the breed. It was so reassuring to know that our dogs came from a breeder that had high standards when selecting a breeding pair. All medical tests were performed on the dogs and no dog was ever bred if there was even a hint of an abnormality. We have never had a dog with a single health issue.
In addition to owning Cabryn Poodles, we used Cabryn to breed our dogs. Each breeding was successful and a positive experience. What fun we had raising all those puppies.
Look no further, you will not find a more dedicated breeder of high quality Poodles.
Just wanted to send you a sweet pic of Cabryn Mia II. Sheís doing great! I got to tell you, she is the funniest, smartest and bossiest little thing Iíve ever seen. She bosses all of her doggie friends around and literally tells them what they can touch and not touch in the house. If they get out of hand she picks up her paw and slaps them right across the face! Itís the craziest thing! At 5 pounds she is always the smallest of the bunch but she doesnít know it! LOL
Thought you'd like to see this! We volunteer at Memorial Sloan Kettering Hospital and we are now part of the, "Angel on a Leash" program.
Nancy and Callie
"CALLIE" 4-years old!
I believed in you from the very first phone conversation we ever had. As the movie line goes, "You had me with hello!" You are genuine, Carolyn, the real thing, and you changed our lives the day we met you and your poodles. And I saw the love and sweetness in your eyes when you talked with us about them! And that's why I give your pens to everyone! (Yes, they work sometimes!)
We can't begin to tell you what our "Callie" means to us. You have given us the most profound gift in the world. That's why I feel such a connection to you and why I have always wanted to stay in touch with you, because, well, just because you are you!
Male Silver Mini " Chagall " at 4 months old
Here's a picture of our four month old male silver miniature poodle Chagall, out of your Lady Liberty and The Lone Ranger. We don't need a welcome mat anymore, he's it!! We can never thank you enough for breeding such friendly, clever, good-natured, gorgeous poodles, and for allowing us to have one of yours in our lives. He is excellent with his potty habits and is friendly to all people, dogs and cats. He also seems to really like the parrot at our vet's! He learns so quickly we think he may actually be a man in a puppy suit; he sits, gives paw, lays down and rolls over on command. We are just so in love with him, as is everyone who meets him--he's such charmer! This photo was taken after his first grooming. We left his tail natural for now because he's a country dog, it looks like a big plume! I wish I were a better photographer because the picture really doesn't do him justice. We'll bring him to visit you again in a few months so you'll see for yourself what a stunning guy he really is.
Thanks from the bottom of our hearts for giving us this wonderful dog to love and enjoy!!

" Chagall " Second Grooming - "Look how I've grown!"
Hello Chagall fans!
Well, Messier Chagall had his second grooming. The groomer told me she "loves" him because he is "so affectionate," which is the absolute truth! Chris, the owner of the grooming shop, asked me where I got Chagall. When I told him your name Carolyn, he said he knows of you. Two other people (among the throngs of Chagall admirers!) also know you; Christine Warner of Furry Godmother petsitting, and a woman in Clinton whose name I didn't get who told me her mother-in-law had a magnificent standard silver poodle from you and they're thinking of getting her another of your wonderful poodles. Of course I encouraged her to do so!
I cannot tell you how proud and happy I am to have one of your poodles! He is a dream dog; he's the sort of dog I'd walk up to before and admire and wish to myself that I could have one just like him. I still can't believe he's mine, and how absolutely wonderful, loving, friendly, clever and cheery he is. The woman who owns the pet boutique, Fur Majesty in Clinton said I just have to do pet therapy for seniors with Chagall. She said he's made for it. He's more than I could have hoped for, Carolyn. I enjoy training him and taking him places and just cuddling with his warm, snuggly little body. I've scheduled him to be neutered, though I would rather have him cloned if I could!
Chagall is coming along beautifully. He LOVES little kids; from infants to toddlers to tweens and teens. Thank you a million times over for making this magnificent dog a part of our lives. I just cannot tell you what a fantastic experience it is the have him for our own!
I hope that this email finds you well and still enjoying your poodles! I wanted to update you on our wonderful dogs!
Yesterday our two sweethearts, Daisy and Dixie, celebrated their 2nd birthday!
As you may remember, my husband and I chose our puppy and left. Then turned around and came back for the other one for my parents. Thank God that we did! They have brought us so much joy and love!
Daisy lives with us in our very active household and Dixie with my parents in their retired household. It's so neat to see how each of them has taken on the personality of the house :) They spend a lot of time together (several times a week) and even many sleepovers when one of us are away. They had a rocky start with the cough and pneumonia ...but you'd never know it to look at them now! They are the picture of health. Thank you fo your support during those episodes. It proves your professionalism and respect for your dogs!
Daisy is more silver than Dixie. Dixie's coat is SUPER thick whereas Dixie is smoother. When Dixie's ears get too long, they look like an afro!
Training with the pups has been a joy. They both ring a bell that hangs by the door when they need to go out. They come when called and do many neat tricks. They even know the rules at both houses....amazing! They travel super well. Dixie goes to Myrtle Beach twice a year with my parents and Daisy loves to camp with us too. They LOVE the beach and love to splash in the water.
So as you can see, they are an important part of our family and we thank you for them! I have attached a pic of them...
I just thought I'd give you a little update on Ella. I've really noticed in the past 6 months a change in her verbal comprehension and communication. I said to her the other day, "I'm sorry, you can't come with me" and she immediately dejectedly walked under the table and laid down.
Also, she's become MUCH more affectionate in the past year as well. When she was a puppy she was so busy exploring the world, but now she is very loving. She is a tremendous licker and loves being scratched. She is the happiest dog you could possibly imagine. She loves everyone and everything, all day long.
Gigi is my second Cabryn silver poodle having owned Tiffany in 1999. I had to wait 11 years after owning Tiffany and was looking for a rescue dog. In late August when I found out that there was a Cabryn poodle up for adoption I jumped at the chance. Like me, she is a Senior Citizen, having turned 8 in early September. Gigi has adjusted very well to her new home. She is a very calm dog, and a quick learner who loves to take long walks, even in the snow. She has become a member of the family and even my wife who is not a dog lover, has bonded with her. However, there is no doubt in Gigi's mind whose dog she is - MINE.
Tiffany was a tough act to follow, but Gigi has proved to be everything that I had hoped that she would be.
I thought you'd like to see some recent pictures of Hunter. He is now almost 15 months. He is getting more social with other dogs and people. He is very active, and enjoys playing with us all the time. He is quite a little character!
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you !
We are over the moon with joy with "Jimmy" a smart, fun loving, handsome
black male mini Poodle. "Jimmy's" groomer >>> Carol Basta won 1st place with
"Jimmy" at Groom Expo 2007 Hershey, Pa.
Here is the photo that I told you about. Is that a face, or what??
Lily will be 13 years old on March 3rd. She has been one of the great joys of my life since the day I brought her home. She is as classy, sweet, polite, feminine, obedient, intelligent and beautiful as the day that I selected her.
It would have been enough to have a great dog, but there is frosting on the cake - and that is being your friend through good times and bad for all of these years.
CABRYN Angelsong Tickle the Ivories - " Ivory "
CGC, Rally, Obedience and Agility wannabe
I hope that you can see my little Ivory in the ring for the very first time!
She was wonderful and very attentive! I was very proud of her (and of me for figuring out how to upload a video to youtube.com like the rest of the world).
I see you have added a wonderful web site for people to get
information about your poodles. I'd like to say that we have had two great
standards, a brown and a black, that have prompted me to tell friends about
them. They, in turn, have bought their own wonderful Cabryn poodles.
Needless to say, keep breeding these wonderful, lovely, intelligent dogs.
Thanks so much,
As a first-time dog owner, with allergies
to cats, i decided to get a poodle.
I was grateful you had a 5-month old
poodle pup that i could train outside vs
going from paper to pavement/grass.
Leonardo brings joy and laughter to
my life daily. I have friends who witness
him smiling. He is full of pep at the
young age of 13 (born 3/9/99) & joins me
on walks through Central Park every
morning. He carries his floppy disk back home,
and if I do not have the disk, my glove will
due!! Leonardo has taught me how to live
in the moment, which reduces stress and makes
me more conscious of the present.
You told me you breed for temperament and
personality, and indeed you do!
For Halle is the center of my life who is the MOST MILD MANNERED dog I have ever encountered in my life and I have encountered MANY for I have had myself two dogs in my life Both were purebreds and they were Nothing compared to "Halle Girl" "Queen of the World" as her father has named her.
