hi there,
I just wanted to introduce myself... my name is Heather and I have a new Red Standard Poodle baby arriving home Aug 21! I thought I better join a forum in case I needed some moral support and since all I want to talk about lately is POODLES this should help satisfy me!
I live in Trenton Ontario, so I'd love to know if anyone out there is close by, love to hook up for a play date once my little guy is ready to meet friends!
:)

Hahaha... I don't know about helping with the addiction, but I will help foster one! Welcome to the forum. Your poodle looks like a real cutie! Beautiful color.

Hi Heather! Thanks for pming me the name. I'm focusing on blacks/ black and whites for now but will for sure keep them in mind if I decide to go red.

Your pup is BEAUTIFUL! I love the colour. Did the breeder mention whether that colour will stay or fade over time?

She's been very upfront and honest about coat color... I know he may very well fade some over time, most do... both mom and dad are on site and are a gorgeous color of red! Dad does not carry the dilute gene so we're hoping our little guy maintains his color fairly well. Either way, by the time he starts fading, I'll be so in love with him... who cares!! (kinda like spouses! lol)

Definitely! It's hard to predict coat colour, but by the time it starts fading you're so in love it doesn't matter. The fact that the parents have held their colour might be a good sign, but I actually like the look of faded reds as well.

When we first got into PWDs, we liked the look of wavy and jet black with a little bit of white on the chest. 20 years later my mom has a gal with brown grey wiry curly hair that she thinks is the best dog she's had! Oh and we put her in the lion clip, which we also started out swearing we would never do. She's the opposite of everything we liked about the PWD and we couldn't love her more. Go figure!
