Can you believe this is the same shaggy, long nailed puppy I showed
pictures of at one time?:eek:


Well this is now "Scooter," our newest addition, took him to the vet today
and he said everything looks good. He is EXTREMELY playful and happy,
and it was love at first site when I brought him home and Maddie saw him,
they love to play and follow me around all day long.:rolleyes:

I have a 1 year health guarantee on him from the breeder stating
that if anything goes wrong while in my ownership (death, disease,
etc.) I will get my money back...can't beat that!


Scooter is sleepy in this picture, his eyes are glowing because
I took it with flash on! The thing on his collar is a rabies tag he
got today from the vet.

CONTINUED...


Scooter greeting me :D

Right now my only intentions with him IS PET ONLY, I can't show him
because he is indeed a silver beige colored brindle...but I'm not too
disappointed. Also, I'm not going to breed him unless I find another AKC
female in the future.

We love him already and couldn't be more happier, I DO NOT regret
getting him.

I had a feeling you were up to something today. lol I noticed you hadn't been on here like usual. Well, congrats on your new addition and yes he does look cute now.

Did you groom him today or did the breeder? He looks like a Poodle now. :)

Yeah, I was occupied all day long with the babies, had to take him
to the vet, and had a dr. appointment today (got another ultrasound
tomorrow). Thank you, he is a sweetie, I need to get some better
pictures so you can see the pretty brindle in his coat, it's lovely.

The breeder had him groomed up for me, because something had to
be done, lol.

Sorry for the bad pictures of him, he doesn't seem to stay still, LOL!

Seriously, other than the rabies shot he had to have a thermometer
and fecal examiner stuck up his butt today, poor little guy! LOL, I will
try to get some better pictures of him...I hope so anyways,
I can't expect every dog to be as photogenic as Miss Maddie.:p

Now to think of a registry name, I was thinking:

"Burkhardt's Lil Handful O' Silver"

..I like it, but I dunno, what do you think?

His a cutey pie. No such thing as a brindle poodle. He should be reg'd silver not beige. He will lighten up alot dont worry about the colour.
Yay for the health guarantee.

Thank you! Really? Well he is a silver poodle then, and
being registered as a silver. The vet receipt I got today
said he was black, hubby and I had a good laugh over
that, lol!

black :confused: silly vet :D

Silvers all start off black and when you clip their face, feet and tails by 4 weeks old you can see the silver. The rest of the body coat colours out slowly. By the looks of the first pic, he is a platinum silver. Such a pretty colour. Sivaro (my mum) when she started out was a breeder of silvers and whites. She was known as the name in silver and white miniature poodles. She died almost 10 yrs ago, and I had taken over her name. She sold her dogs 8 yrs prior to dying. Real shame cause the lines were ruined when I wanted to get them back in.

Here is a pic about 20 yrs ago or her beautiful silver & white girls.

Scooter is adorable - how old is he? He looks silver in one pic and silver beige in the other. Teddy's hair is still coming in like a silver and brown tweed.

I'd say the second picture, though you can't really tell the coloring due
to the lighting in the room, going to get another picture of him to post so
you can get a better idea of the color.;)

Also Sivaro, someone stated this on another forum, I wanted to get
your take on it:

"There most surely is such a thing as a brindle haircoat to my um
woolgathering experience. The puddle wool remains brindle- to some
degree for the lifetime of the dog. And is a mismark or dq. (pfft) Sounds
like you have perhaps some sort of a silver dilute going on there. No idea-
as not seen the pup. Likely comes about when folks are breeding any color
to any other color- *G* Not always."

Scooter's Dam was solid white and his Sire Black, same as Maddie's.
Maybe he is a silver dilute?
