Riley is 7 and a half. I think he looks Great for his age, and noone can believe it when i tell them (one thing i like about the light colors as they dont show gray on the muzzle).
I count at birth and I am not sure about your other questions??Do you guys count how old your poodles are while they are in the womb as well? I believe at Poodle life at conception. Have you guys ever had to have poodle abortions when an unsuspecting pregnancy occurred or when one of your poodles was less educated and well off so she just couldn't afford to have a puppy?
I managed a shelter here for 4 years and our veterinarian would make an educated "guess" of the age of any animal that came in as a stray or pound rescue or abandoned...Cricket turned 3 on November 16th! The male rescue poodle we are in the process of trying to adopt has been estimated to be 3.5 yo. Does anyone know how the rescues can tell how old they are? I've always wondered how they do that......
