My name is Kari Anne Light, I am a mom and a grandma, and I love poodles and midwifery, and my family of course!  I have seven children, 3 grandchildren, 5 of my own poodles, and PUPPIES!
 
Our family went without a pet for almost 7 years due to many years of dog disasters. 
 
As time without a pet went by my family began to long for a dog. Not me, I wanted a poodle!  Since childhood I longed to have a cute and VERY tiny poodle. All my life I had heard different people say "oh, you don't want a poodle", they just didn't know the truth about poodles, and I not knowing anything about them, never got one either. As the pressure to have a family dog became too much, I knew it would be me who would again be the sole caretaker, so I insisted we get a poodle! 
 
In fact, after much research I found poodles to be everything I wanted in a pet! So, I set out to find my first poodles, so I could start a small home raised kennel. I traveled all over Texas searching for poodles for my kennel. I finally found two, half sisters in Houston, Texas. They have the same father, and different mothers. 
 
As time to breed my parti poodle drew near, I had not yet found the "perfect" male for her. Finally, I found him at Patty's Paw Print Kennel.  He flew here to the Austin area of Texas from Birmingham, Alabama.
 
So, that is the start of MARKARI'S PRESTINE POODLES. We have had 2 litters this past year, and will be having as many as 4 this next year so keep checking back!

Grooming Center & Photo Studio

I have a fairly large laundry room and share it with my poodles. This is where I groom, immunize, and worm them. It's where I raise my puppies, and all my poodles.  The adults have their "very own room" (they consider their crate, which is personalized for them, their own room!). 
 
Once puppies get too big for their mommy's room, they graduate to a playpen. They eat, play and sleep in this playpen, and go outside 3-4 times a day, weather permitting. During these playtimes they get to play with mommy, and the other adult dogs, and they often continue to nurse, sometimes even until they are 12-13 weeks old if they are still here, and if mommy will let them, and most of them time she does!
 
I have a huge yard where they can run and roam, and we have a small dog run as well. They love it here!  I work hard to socialize my puppies with children, and adult dogs. They go places with us too to help them get used to traveling. By the time they are ready for their new homes, they are used to family life, grooming, and all the other joys in a poodle life!  They are always happy puppies, and we love raising them!
