"Phyllis Disque of Shiloh Kennels in Iowa started this process in 1995 and has created the “Cantel” breed that consistently produces the desired qualities. She started with the Bichon and crossed it with the colored and parti-colored Toy Poodles. She said she wanted a parti-colored dog with Bichon qualities. Asked why she named it “Cantel”, Mrs. Disque replied, “You can’t tell if it’s a Bichon, and you can’t tell if it’s a Poodle!” After establishing the breed, Mrs. Disque trademarked the Cantel name to prevent others from legally claiming to produce them. Many breeders claimed they were producing Cantels with only one generation and weren’t particularly concerned with producing consistent specimens. ACHC has created The Cantel Club of America exclusively for the genuine Cantel."
Yah. And I didn't refer to you or make mention of you or your post. I posted that because it's just been that kind of week 'round here, and I didn't want anyone else to skim the thread, jump to conclusions, or anything else requiring a hose to put out the flames.
