It's been an exciting month since we got our little girl Siouxsie (pronounced like "Suzy"). She's a standard poodle, registered as black, but suspected she might be a blue - only time will tell! Either way, we'll be happy and we love her to death.

I wish I had more photos of her, but I've found that it's true what they say about black poodles - they are rather hard to photograph, especially with a phone. I'm going to have to break out my DSLR and work with manual settings...

Here she is at about 7 weeks, still at the breeder's.

Here at 8 weeks, being held by my wife as we picked her up at the airport, and later that day after we got her home.

A few days later, one day shy of 9 weeks old.

10-1/2 weeks, in front of the coffee table she likes to chew when she's bored :afraid:

12 weeks, in her wire crate, one of the few places I can get her to sit still for more than 1/2 a second!

And the most recent photo, which actually came out pretty good, a day shy of 13 weeks old.

We're looking forward to watching her continue to grow like crazy (probably at double her body weight in the 4 weeks since we got her)!

If you haven't already tried this

it might help keep her from chewing that lovely table :). It doesn't work for every dog, but it worked for my boys. I was too late to save the undersides of the sofa and loveseat, but they left the legs alone.

She is definitely full of energy, but she is a good girl and settles down nicely when she's in her crate or her pen. She has a great temperament.

She's so beautiful. Amazing how quickly they grow!

I load up Peggy's exercise pen with items she can chew and shred and snuffle around in, and that's where she spends any of her uncrated, unsupervised time. So far it's kept her from showing much interest in chewing on our furniture or belongings, but who knows what the future will bring. I suspect she'd like to have a good long gnaw on our baseboards.

Here she is at 16-weeks, fresh from the groomer. She's growing like a weed and as beautiful as ever.

By the way, anyone know how to make the photos larger within the post?

Here she is at 17 weeks, just hanging out in the yard. She received her final round of vaccinations on Monday, so after giving them some time to take effect, I'm looking forward to getting her out and about to some new and interesting places!
