thanks for all the great comments! I love love love this boy. I think he is pretty awesome...of course I'm not biased or anything
I bought him from a breeder in Winston Salem NC and he is about 9 months old now. I live about an hour and a half or so west of her near Lenoir NC (for those asking). I'd love to meet other poodle lovers in my area. I'm learning how to groom so I have a lot to learn. His breeder has been sending me pictures via email to go by and I bought a book about grooming so I've kind of been "winging it". I'd love to learn how to do the more traditional puppy cut for his ring debut in July. Don't know if he has enough hair for that now or not though.
Greensboro is not to far...a couple hours. One of the things I love about Ranger is he does love life! He bounds around and looks like he is smiling all the time. He makes me laugh every day. I have another mini named Morgan. He is 2 years old. Morgan is an awesome boy too! He is a black/white parti poo. He loves to play fetch and loves to play tug even more. He is the gentleman...Ranger is the wild unruley teen I'll post pics of Morgan later...I'm supposed to be "working" so guess I'll get to it. I look forward to chatting with everyone here!
That's the prettiest phantom I've seen. Truly gorgeous.
I was reading about your grooming. There is a poodle grooming seminar in Greensboro this weekend. My sister and I are going. She lives in the Lexington area. It will be at the Nanhall Grooming School. My sister is starting out as well. Check it out.
