What a Precious Princess Daisy is! So glad she is getting along with everyone (meaning Dude). Who can blame her about the food? And such a different girl in her before and after set of pictures... She looked soooo calm getting her bath , that's a sure marker in her favor as a good girl! Here's to a long, happy, healthy life with for Miz Daisy with you, Dude and the rest of your family! Happy Thanksgiving!
ps: couldn't help the marshmallow guy, he just cracked me up!

The two dogs are just fabulous! I can't believe how gorgeous, relaxed and comfortable Daisy looks. Please keep the photos coming. And we want every detail about how Dude and Daisy are interacting with each other and with the rest of the family. You have quite a fan club here!

What a great thanksgiving gift..your story brought tears to my eyes. Thank you so much for opening your heart, mind and home to this beautiful girl. She will change some over the weeks to come..she looks so calm and that shouldnt change..but as she learns your home is her home..she may bark at the mailman etc..I wonder if she has ever been groomed? How did she do with the blow drying? She really is a beautiful poodley girl. What a great save..I wish all the dogs at that "breeders" could be rescued and that they would not continue keeping dogs in that way..but we have to accept what we cannot change and have the courage to change the things we can.
As a matter of fact, she did bark at a person walking this morning. Oh well, dogs bark. Dude doesn't often so hopefully she'll learn from him. And not the other way around!
As for her grooming history...twice a year- that's it. It looks like her ears had the upper- half trimmed perhaps to the leather last time since the top half is shorter than the bottom. I'd be surprised if she had ever experienced a dryer but I watched them dry her yesterday and she was very accepting of it.
I clipped her myself when we got home from the bath. I had to enlist my daughters help to pet her and talk to her while I did her face and feet. Its a pretty sloppy job since she didn't hold still nearly as well as Dude and it's my first time clipping a wriggler (and only fourth time ever clipping period).
I didn't get her feet well at all. I'm going to have her teeth cleaned next week so I'm going to ask that they do her feet then- maybe even while she is sleeping. She does have some pretty funky ears as well. She and dude are both seeing the vet at 10:00am tomorrow morning so we will start working on that then.
Oh, and I wanted to tell you something I was very surprised about. Along with her registration papers, I received the documentation of different health testing results. There's a hip joint evaluated- good, Cardiac- normal, patellar luxation- normal, and elbow dysphasia- normal. There's another form listing those that also has eyes but I don't know what the stuff beside it means.

His owner kept him in a crate for the first 18 months of his life, without even water expect for the few mins he was out each day. She claimed she could not get him housebroken and my mom has had him since kuku first told us about Peaches and he has not once gone in the house! Oh and this is a "show " person! So don't ever think just because someone shows their dogs that they are getting the best of care...
Awwww, how awesome. I'm so glad she took the plunge! Yay!

OMG! I was SOOOO excited when I saw your post ..I was waiting for her arrival cuz of the back story you had! She's Beautiful! She sounds like a match made in heaven(With You & Hubby becoming her guardian angels!) Now you've GOT TO keep us updated on her adjustment to her new loving home.
I just love how she seems to be smiling in most of the pics! If she could talk I bet she'd say "Thank You!"
Another Standard hits the poodle lottery.. congratulations and thank you for giving her a chance to reach her real potential and learn to be loved!! She'd been waiting long enough for you to come along.
