Welcome Margaret. Two four month old puppies sounds like a lot of work. Good for you for adopting. Looking forward to your story. And, yes, this is the correct place to introduce yourself.

Welcome to the forums. We LOVE pictures :)
Two puppies at once? What a lot of work! You must be very tired and busy!

See you around the forums!

New member, too.

Hello, my name is Gwen. I have a 4-year-old standard poodle named Charlie and live in the Ottawa area. He's my first poodle and my first dog. At the dog training school they call him "bulletproof" because they can stick any of the cranky dogs next to him and he'll win them over. Damned if I can get him to come when there's a cat/squirrel/deer in the area though. I'm here because I thought I knew a lot about dogs until Charlie instructed me otherwise.

Welcome! I'm fairly new to this forum too, and have 2 blue standards. Lots of good advice and lots can be learned here. Still haven't figured out how to post photos myself, I guess you have to have a program to make the photos smaller.

I haven't worked that out either. I tried shrinking the picture by e-mailing it and choosing the smallest size but it still isn't showing up.

Indiana, I was able to find pictures of your girls in your profile. They're beautiful!!! And so well groomed. Even though I've had Charlie for 4 years, I'm still ashamed to walk him in public for a few days after grooming him. Fortunately, after the hair has grown out a bit, it just looks like I was going for a messy look - and most of the people around here don't know what he's supposed to look like anyway.

Thanks! Gwen, about the grooming, I am just learning; I used to work as a groomer many years ago before I had kids but to tell the truth, we groomed almost exclusively poodle crosses and shih tzu mixes, and all in pet clips. I had a lovely little Bedlington I was showing at the time so hers was the only show clip I ever learned (I handled my friends' standards in shows but she groomed them into show clips, I just roughed them in). So now I am trying to learn how to groom my girls, basically with a book open at my side, lol! This forum is extremely helpful in that as well as other topics though. Anyway the important thing is enjoying them as dogs, grooming is just the window dressing :)
