Hi there,

I would like to introduce myself, my name is Jewels and I live in California. I recently lost my wonderful standard poodle at age 14. She was the love of my life and miss her so much. We had 14 amazing years together and I cherish every single memory. I will soon begin the process of searching for my next companion. I thought I would join this forum to keep in touch with poodle lovers and enjoy your stories while I am missing having one around.

So sorry for your loss... :( I'm just beginning my standard poodle journey with my nearly 6 month old Lucybug and already I can't imagine life without her... Maybe you'll find your next best friend through the members here on the forum!! Welcome!

Welcome Jewels!!! I am so sorry to hear about your Spoo. It sounds like she was cherished. Take comfort in knowing she felt that every minute. I hope you enjoy it here. And who knows...maybe your next furkid will be bred by one of the members.

Thanks to you all for the warm welcome. Life without a poodle is a little lonely, but I am blessed with a wonderful husband and super horse. My friends all say we have great animal karma since all of our pets have turned out to be outstanding, so I am certain a special poodle will enter our family soon.

Welcome Jewels.
I'm sorry for your loss as well. Although she lived a good long life, it's never long enough. Her memories will live on and they'll have you smiling again.

Where in California are you? I'm from Ventura... still call it home although I love living here in St George Utah now.

Glad you are here amongst other poodle lovers.
Karen

So sorry for your loss. I lost my special baby last March and it still hurts. My husband & daughter decided to get me a new spoo for Christmas. I love him to death. Hopefully you will find a new baby soon. Never can replace but helps to feel the void. I also own a horse and they sure have big shoulders to cry on uh? It's a good thing mine can't talk he knows most of my secrets. :)

Thanks to you all for the warm welcome here. My husband and I are just starting to think about another Poodle companion. Our special girl is a hard act to follow and we realize that our next one will be different and will never take her place, but we want a very special dog. Our pets are important members of our family so we will be looking for just the right fit. Our first two poodles were ex-show dogs which worked out great for us since we are not sure we have the time to properly train a young puppy. It is great to hear about all of your wonderful dogs. It is really inspiring me to start the search. I love to groom and really miss having a poodle to fuss over.

If I can help...

We have 6-8 black Standard puppies coming around mid-March. This is a very strategic breeding pedigree wise and both parents have CHIC numbers. The pups won't leave quickly because I'm so afraid of any of them going to a less than loving home. I may still have pups when they are 3 months old for that reason. They will all be treated as show pups day one since we intend to keep a couple to show and in the beginning you don't know which ones will be staying. My big preference is to sell to folks who know Standards and what's involved in being owned by one, so that's why I'm responding in this fashion. I'm also in California.

I mean no offense by this but you might want to check with the admin before you start soliciting your puppies. I mean you haven't said who you are, what your kennel name is or anything. You just sort of jumped in and started talking about what you are selling. That's not what this forum is about, mostly pet owners here looking for help with their poodles. Good luck finding homes for your puppies.

Selling pups

Okay, so I have a list of prospective new homes longer than what we think are the number of pups. I titled this "If I can help" and meant it that way. Only a couple of the folks on my list really know Standards and what's entailed so this still seems to me like it could/might be a win-win. I don't need an outlet for the pups but am quite wary of where they go. I think you can understand.

That's fine, I'm just informing you of what our admin informed us a while back. I see you joined in Nov. 09 and I'm not sure if you saw his post about selling puppies here.

No - I joined then but didn't "catch" that you have to do the initial posting before you're active and so it was a hibernating place for me until tonight actually. Anyway, do check Levade Standard Poodles fan page on Facebook
and you'll see more about me.

Yeah I found the Levade name on poodlepedigree but under the owner name of Arlene Deis not Dagny. Was that your mom?

Levade Standard Poodles

No, it was/is me. I began using Dagny Reis as Dagny has been my nickname my entire life since I was born in Norway though Arleen was my legal name, so I decided to stick with Dagny now but didn't want to give up Levade (which is the name of a dressage movement) as a kennel name because I was successful before.
