Default 52 weeks of "Lucy"

Well, I'm probably in some way jinxing myself here, but what the heck I'll take a risk. I found our new poodle! A toy apricot my daughter has dubbed "Lucy"!

These pictures are from 10 days of age when we picked her out. I'll count them as week one, then I'll try to get pictures closer to the actual "week birthdays" as they come. Of course I'm crazy for taking too many pictures so don't be surprised to see some of those "in between" shots!

I couldn't be happier with the breeder and the quality of her mother! Temperment of mom and sister are to die for, they didn't bark when we drove up but both ran out to greet us tails wagging! Once we got inside both the one year old sister and the mother were happy to lay on the floor and couch while we chatted!

I met the stud earlier, but when I did he was more interested in er.... reaquainting himself with the mother of the litter I was looking at. He did come check me out a few times so I don't think he's too shy. He is a very small toy and has that looser fluffy coat, though he still won a few shows I'm sure with the help of hair spray :(. Mom is a perfect 5lbs with exactly the coat I'm looking for and bone dry eyes! Lucy's full sister is a little too tiny for me at just under 4lbs (spayed of coarse) Her coat is in the middle for being curly, however she does technically still have a chance at getting a bit better as the breeder feels her puppy coat is still lingering.

Lucy is "charting" to be about 4 1/2 to 5 lbs, but honestly how acurate can the chart be at such a young age and the mother is super attentive with a litter of only two?!?

I took a big risk on choosing "Lucy" before her eyes openened and her coat grew in, but once I met the mother and sister and heard all about this line and their incredible temperment, I was pretty well sold as temperment is #1 on my list. Even at the age of 6 years mom looks well, perfect in my eyes!

The breeder feels that Lucy has a great chance at that thick curly coat as she already feels quite dense even compared to her little brother who is no slouch himself. Last years litter of three had two out of three end up with dry eyes and thick coats, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed tightly!!!! Oh and I know I'm shooting for the stars, but I'd love as dark a nose as possible!

Here's Lucy!!!






Love this long dock. Only thing better would have been NO dock. Darn it being 7 days too late :(

Default Officially Week 2!

Week 2! Eyes are just opening. We obviously didn't stay long and didn't want to handle her too much, but we were able to have her sleep quietly in our hands while sitting on the floor talking and visiting with the breeder At one point Candy (Lucy's mom) nested in on Rachels coat so we put the pups with her and she actually nursed them for quite some time. Such a good and patient mom...















Weighing time! The CRAZY thing is that her "little brother" in four days from being a 1/4 to 1/3 less than her is all of the sudden BIGGER than her?!? What??!!? Forgot to write down the weights. Thankfully the breeder keeps very careful record and even showed the growth rates of previous litters. So interesting!

Lucy was 4 weeks old yesterday! She is charting to be about 5 1/2 lbs now. So interesting to see how she compares to the online charts, even though I know they are likely garbage anyway!!

We had an incident two days ago. The breeder said it was time to start short periods of getting the pups de-sensitized to clippers. She hands me the clippers and says to run them along her her coat and hold them near her. The guard was on, so everything would be ok right? So I'm watching her face for reactions (she still rested through the whole thing) and I hear my daughter exclaim - "OH MOM!!" I look and you guessed it, the clipper guard fell off and I scalped my daughters pup! Good thing we are all easy going and we mostly had a good laugh over the whole thing. We now have our first "funny family story" about Lucy! The day mom scalped the pup! I had to promise to get my groomer friend to blend the coat as much as possible the day before "homecoming" lol!







The breeder asked if we wanted to shave her face yet and after the trauma of the "scalping" we just couldn't do it! So she'll stay fuzzy faced at least a few more weeks. Though we'll likely practice more with the guard firmly taped in place! lol!


Here are some pictures from last night, her 4 week birthday, anniversary, whatever you wanna call it!

Ok, so it's not quite her 5 week birthday, but I'm just getting so many cute pictures!







My daugher picked up a new webkinz in ode to Lucy. Can you believe they actually have a webkinz labeled "labradoodle"? lol!


Wasn't there just a thread about a prick eared poodle?
