Yes. When we walked in the door, Barbara was sitting at the kitchen table with Taffy in her arms waiting for us. They really didn't want us to look at the rest of the litter. This is the one they knew had the qualities we were looking for and they were right. We should be ashamed to question a show breeder who has been showing since 1939. But you know how it is. You just have to see all those fluffy little babies! LOLBeautiful, this is the pup that was picked for you by the breeder you told me about right? Absolutly adorable!
PS can you believe that we lost her phone number and last name? If we ever wanted another mini from her we would be out of luck! lolI knew absoultely NOTHING about picking out a puppy except watch to if frisky - lol nothing about poodles either. Hadnt found this site as yet. When we got out minis the breeder had them ALL in her house - I mean she has 8 that are her dogs and she had three litters of pups running around. they were so very social it was great! Her house didn't smell or anything - every once in a while she woudl say "doors open" and all the dogs would go out together - it was so cute. they were all so friendly. We got to see the momma and poppa and we ended up taking the one she had picked out for my daughter and another. One is built just like the mother - stocky and bigger and the other is like the father - more show quality. But all her dogs were so friendly. I think I like the way she did it better than Leatherstocking but she wasn't breeding show dogs although she did show the father.
