The Standard Poodle Club pays tribute to Roger E Bayliss (Kertellas), who died suddenly on 3 July 2019. He was a Club Member and Supporter for over 40 years and a towering figure in the world of Standard Poodles at home and abroad. For people of my generation, his first Standard Champion, Roushkas Pacific was legendary and he is in the pedigrees of countless Standards and was Breed CC Record Holder for many years. He continued to breed and show quality Poodles in all three sizes, producing a large number of Champions. Roger will be greatly missed at shows including the Standard Poodle Club Championship and Open Shows, as he was rarely absent from the ringside.
The Club remembered Roger with respect and affection at our Championship Show on 4 August 2019 as we also remember Club Officers, Molly Windebank, Harry and Audrey Hazlewood, who have all passed away this year. We extend our sincere sympathy to Roger’s long-term and devoted partner, Andrew Hoblin and celebrate the life and achievements of this unique man.
Peter Little OBE (Chairman, Standard Poodle Club).
