Carly is the newest addition to the family. She steals everyone's heart. My husband and I just love her! Carly is an abstract and we just love the little white spot on her chin!

I am including some pics of Carly on the night she came home; which was only just last Thursday. She is 9 1/2 weeks old.

Wow how funny! I had never seen a poodle with a little white chin like that, not even a photo until ummm I guess it was two weeks ago now we had one come into the salon. I think I posted pics of him somewhere. Anyway I thought that was a chance in a million that he would have a marking like that but here I sit ooohhhing and ahhhhing over your little baby with the same little white chin. I LOVE IT! How adorable!!

Am I to assume the term abstract refers to a solid dog with small white markings? Does that make my girl an abstract too?? She has a small white marking on her chest, much smaller that your baby, and white twos on both back feet. Just curious, I can't recall noticing the term before.

Yes. Any poodle that has white markings in its coat is referred to as an abstract. AKC doesn't allow them to be shown for breed but I think they are beautiful! I am hoping to train Carly to be shown in the agility class.

AH, ok that's interesting to know. I wonder how many absrtact poodles are showin in the breed ring anyway. You can do a lot with chalk, sharpie markers, and dye ..... or so I hear.

That's interesting that you should say that. I was actually wondering if people did things like using dye to cover up an AKC unacceptable spot. Seems that it would be an awfully risky thing to do don't you think? Certainly unethical at the least!

My Billy is a pretty blue and I am thinking about showing him before he reaches his 1 year birthday so he can go in with the puppy cut. Mostly, Dianne and I would like to show our dogs for obedience and agility. Carly can compete in those.
