Hi Ann, for your information, I sent this to your prospective buyer.

Subj: Re: Poodles
I am happy to give you a very good reference for Ann Kennedy and Clarion Poodles. I bought a white female miniature poodle from Ann in 2001. I still have her, and she is a happy, intelligent dog with excellent health. We showed her with a professional handler and she quickly earned her Championship, back in 2003. In my experience, Ann is a careful breeder and produces high quality dogs and I would buy another poodle from her (and probably will when the time is right).
I live in Houston and I originally found Clarion Poodles through the poodle magazines, dog show catalogs, and internet research. I communicated with Ann by email first, and eventually flew out to California to see puppies. Of course, I came home with one! Ann was supportive and gave me all the information I needed, and she still keeps up with us to this day, So my experience with her has been positive.
I don't think you will be disappointed with a Clarion poodle! They are special little dogs.
Let me know if you have any other questions.
Good luck, Beth
