NEW AKC CHAMPION! Pickle Man Parides Razamataz Whirlwind PC (aka Problem Child, aka Pickle Man, aka Taz) His Sire is our UKC CH D'Vine Whirlwind Ryder Parides, and the Dam is our UKC CH D'Vine Raye of Sunshine Parides. Problem Child, was born May 9, 2011. From the moment he was born, he has lived up to the name, 'Problem Child.' This little guy was in training for the conformation ring with Shirley Myall at Zeley's Papillons in Williamsburg, VA. Shirley fondly calls him Pickle Man because he just can't seem to keep himself out of trouble and is always getting himself into a pickle. Pickle started his UKC show career off with a BANG, with Shirley Myall handling! At the age of 6 months, he went Best of Breed eleven of twelve times, had seven Group placements, and is Ranked the UKC #9 Papillon for 2011, which qualified him to participate in the UKC Premier Show, June 2012. However, Pickle Man could not compete at the UKC Premier, because his one of his new co-owners will be a Judge at the Premier.
