I can't wait to hear all about Peaches joining your family. Something for everyone to be thankful for this Thanksgiving
I hope all goes well at the vet and she gets a clean bill of health.

I think you made a good choice, as someone else said, who's going to line up for peaches?

I think you acted on a logical and emotional response, had you been looking at a puppy for a higher fee from them, obviously that would haven't made much sense. I hope that you have many happy years with Dude and Peaches.

Yay! Congratulations on your new family member. Poodles are addictive aren't they?!

I'm like you kukachoo...my first response is to get the poor dog out of its bad situation. Maybe it's not logical, but that's just how I roll. I have a groomer friend who has a lot of dogs....most of which are poodles. Not sure how many, but way too many for her to care for especially since she is 70. They are kept crated most of the day with a few chances to go outside and potty. They get very little emotional care, yet like the good poodles they are they all adore her. They are groomed maybe a few times a year, a bit more if she attends a grooming competition or seminar with one of them. Their area reeks of urine, and I know for a fact at least one is sick but she won't take him to the vet. It breaks my heart knowing they are right there where I could help them, and yet since they are fed, watered, and sheltered my hands are tied. I tried to give one, Devon, a home once. He is so emotionally scarred I couldn't keep him, he was a danger to the kids. So back he went with many tears on my part. So I know exactly how you feel....you have a chance to give a great dog the kind of home she deserves, and of course you want to! I say go for it, and bless you for being so kind.

I was waiting to hear what you had decided. I know you made the right decision. I have always had an emotional response to one puppy or another. If you felt some kind of connection with her, then she's the one!

Whatever you feel about the way he used her to produce puppies one litter after the other, he chose her to breed for a reason. He could have chosen any number of other dogs. She is likely a pretty girl with basic good health with a nice temperament who has been sorely ignored. You may find she is very needy and follows your every move. You may have some issues to work through with her as she hasn't been in a house before.

I have found that my dogs learn from one another. Dude is a good boy. She'll learn from him what is expected in your house. Dude might not know what to do with a friend, but together they will keep each other company. It will be an adventure for sure. The fact that she was friendly with your kids is a great sign and your husband had a soft spot for her, too.

Boy! Is she is LUCKY girl! I look forward to pictures!

edit: PS Apricot is a beautiful color when they are clean and shiny! When they are dirty they are dull looking. I hope you have a wonderful surprise after you get her bathed!

There is no TV series or soap opera in the world that can hold a candle to the real-life stories here on Poodleforum. We're now hooked on the continuing adventures of Dude and Peaches, so keep those posts coming!

Peaches' Homecoming is sure to have the highest ratings this season!

Thanks everyone for sharing in our excitement. Too many to quote everyone who posted, but I appreciate each one of you!

Thanks, I really needed to make it clear to the kids that what they saw was not a good example of how to treat animals. It was a good chance to show them that adults are not perfect either and also that just because something isn't illegal doesn't mean it isn't immoral or unethical.

LOL! How funny. It is so true though. I love keeping up with everyone's "dog days" on here and really enjoy sharing ours.

Absolutely! I will make sure to take photos (LOTS) I have no idea what her true color is, its hard to say if most of her apricot coloring is red mud or her true color!

Oh, and one last thing. We're going to change her name.

She will become "Daisy" when she becomes ours.
