My name is Charlotte and as you can see in the title, I'm from Belgium!
So I want to apologize in advance if my spelling or grammar looks a bit weird, but English is not my first language. Comes right after Dutch and French.
I have been reading along on this forum for a while now and I have learned a lot!
On November 16th my future miniature poodle puppy, James, was born.
He'll be a big mini because the breed standards in Belgium and the Netherlands are different from the ones in the US.
His mom is about 37cm and weighs 7-8kg and his dad is about 38cm and weighs 8-9kg.
In Belgium and the Netherlands this size of poodle is called "Middenslag", if you would translate that to English it would be called "Medium".
I believe he would be a very small Standard poodle in US terms?
In a little less then a month I'm going to visit the puppies for the first time, they will then be 6 weeks old and I will have to choose the one that will be a big part of my life for many years to come. I'm so looking forward too that!
Of course time will tell what kind of dog James will become but I would love to do some agility, obedience and frisbee with him.
We are also going to do some shows as I plan to, in time, become a breeder of these wonderful balls of fluffiness
I look forward to read along and contribute on this forum and I will open a new post in a couple of days with pictures of the puppies as they are coming by mail (actual physical mail
