Athena was not only, first and foremost, our loving companion for 14 years but a very important part of Signet Poodles and her impact will be felt for many years to come. She has been a huge asset to our breeding program as well as to other breeders, through her children, grand-children and great-grandchildren. She is the dam of 9 Champions and 2 American Champions.

Her daughter, AM. CAN. Ch. Signet High Society, TP of 11 Champions including 4 Am. Champions, won the Variety and Best of Opposite Sex in Specialty at Poodle Club of Canada, 2002 and was Best Brood Bitch in Specialty at Poodle Club of Canada in 2006. Annie is the dam of 4 BIS winners, 2 SBIS winners, 2 AOM at PCC, 1 AOM at Poodle Club of America and an AOM at Westminster Kennel Club. Annie is owned by Lisa Goodwin, Tango Poodles.

Her son, MBIS/SBIS AM. CAN. Ch. Signet Riverdance, TP of 12 Champions, including 7 Am. Champions was Top Poodle, Top Non-Sporting Dog (BDIC) in 2007. Hamish is owned by Alice Giddy and Kevin Wood.

Her grandson, MBIS/SBIS AM. CAN. Ch. Classique Scaramouche, bred by Tanis Gardner, Classique Poodles, had an outstanding year, ending 2010 as #2 All-Breeds, Top Non-Sporting Dog and Top Poodle. In February, 2010 Spenser was BOS at the prestigious Westminster Kennel Club Show.

Athena loved the show ring and was one of those poodles who showed themselves. Her first show at 7 months of age was under Breeder/Judge Len Harfield who awarded her BOW and BP. At 9 months of age she was WB, BOS and Best Standard Puppy at the OVPC Specialty Show under Breeder/Judge Jordan Chamberlain. Athena was awarded Best Veteran In Specialty Show at the PCC National Specialty in 2006. The joy she displayed at being back in the ring was obvious to all who cheered her on. She was also in her glory when she participated in several Parade of Champions over the years at Specialties.

She has passed on her affectionate, outgoing nature and “joie de vivre” to all of her kids and grand-kids. Always an exceptional Mom, Athena, even up to her passing, loved nothing better than to play with puppies, no matter who they belonged to. She especially enjoyed looking after puppies here at Signet in her later years. She was a wonderful role-model. Athena made a lot of friends over the years. She will be greatly missed.

It came to be that every time I lose a dog, they take a piece of my heart with them and every new dog that comes in to my life gifts me with a piece of their heart. If I live long enough, all the components of my heart will be the dog, and I will become as loving and generous as they are.   Author Unknown
