    Chanda-Leah, 4 Time Guiness Book of World Record Holder
    "World's Smartest Dog"

    Chanda-Leah was fully toilet trained at the tender age of seven and a half weeks. By her third birthday, she was already delighting audiences with mini piano recitals. At age four, she began reading and doing mathematical equations in dazzling displays of intelligence. Before this gifted prodigy passed to the Rainbow Bridge, she had started painting stunning water-colors that were on par with the work of any abstract artist. Chanda-Leah was a toy poodle who held the Guinness World record for the 'Most Tricks Performed by a Dog'. She’s was hailed as the 'World’s Smartest Dog' by both Ripley's Believe it or Not and The National Enquirer due to a repertoire that included over 1000 tricks. This delightful little dog was an experienced, multi-talented, show -stopping performer who was nothing short of phenomenal.


    Chanda-Leah was an accomplished artist whose rich and colorful abstract paintings became collector’s items that can be seen in numerous homes around the world. Her musical virtuosity had the ability to bring the house down and extended beyond the piano to the drums and to the saxophone. Perhaps most impressively, this doggy wonder knew the alphabet, the days of the week, the months of the year, numbers from 1-100 and could add, subtract and multiply AND read all of the above from cue cards. Although, Chanda-Leah garnered the attention of the local, national and international media, most notably appearing on the Jay Leno Show and David Letterman Show, most of the work she did was behind the scenes on her home turf in Ontario, Canada. She was a sucker for a good cause and loved to entertain in schools, churches, nursing homes, hospitals and at various fairs and fundraisers.


    Chanda-Leah touched lives and amazed and inspired every generation with her sheer skill, unblinking focus, big smile and high energy levels combined with a sharp intellect and a winning attitude. This adorable, champagne- colored fluffy genius will be sorely missed by her owner and trainer, Sharon Robinson and her husband Tommy Robinson and by her legions of fans in Canada and all over the world. Chanda died on June 20th, 2006 in Hamilton, Ontario, due to complications causes by cardiac difficulties. She was 12 1/2 years old.
