Heyy, its been months since I last posted on here, but its mainly due to me starting 6th form
(in the USA, Im not sure what you'd call it but.. its the 2 years before University)
so life is hectic!

So.. I'm 17...
I live in 2 wonderful places in the UK, most the time I'm in hertfordshire.. a mostly countryside county 40miles north o' London.
And occasionaly I'm in Worthing, near Brighton (by the seaaaaside!) 40miles south o' London.

I got my first ever dog in June, who is Harley, my apricot miniature poodle :)
He's not show-type.. just plain old pet type.. which shows in his slightly roached back, curled tail andcow-hocks. But.. looks aren't everything, eh?

I got my first set of Andis 2speed clippers today and plan on doing all sorts of thigns to my little angel ;)
He'll love it really, tho' my family won't.

Anyway, thats me!
I'd show you guys pictures of him, buuuut... I don't know how to :s

Ahhhh :D thats awesome! I almost took Harley to a groomers in Shoreham that someone recommended me.. what is the name of the groomers that you're at?
The little fella is 9 months old, so they're similar ages :)
I adore parti poodles! They're always so interesting to look at, since each one's unique :)

Yep! Looks like Peanut is the one! Exact cut and harness(I think)
Todd looks absolutely scrumptious in that shot ! He looks a bit like a panda with that band over his back!

Here are a few of Harls.. oldest to newest. Ages are a complete blur to me, but I'll give approx:

*9weeks*


*13ishweeks.. with a mummycut (as in.. I trimmed round his nose with paper scissors...!! :O *


*14-15ish weeks. nose hair grown in a bit..*

and ....loads more!.. But Ill put a few more in another post, since I read we're only allowed 4 pictures :)

*hair grows in a bit(around7months)*


*and then! the most recent ones I have are 8months on this computer!*
*


The last one I took for one of my doggie friends, since we're both into cars, and so I got harley into reading Top Gear Mag by putting a yogurt drop on the inside flap and telling him to "watch!" :D

P.S. Sorry I'm so obsessive.. but then again.. I'm infected by a Poodle so am subject to overobsession

Do you know what would be lovely? an apricot parti :) I'd like to see one of those!
and Harls is 18inches at the shoulder...so is technically speaking a standard poodle ... :s
How tall is Todd?

Harley is a handsome boy! Full of personality too from what I see in the photos! As far as your poodle obsession goes..........I suffer from it too! Although suffer isn't quite the right word....but you get the jest of it!

Ahhh the klein.. not common in Britain, in fact I think very few people know about it, but in the rest of Europe its as common as the other 3 sizes.
His mum was really tall and leggy (but not out of proportion) and his dad was 15inches exactly, but long bodied.. so I think he's a good mix of them.
I'm going to find some pictures of his siblings :)

That picture of the apricot parti is magnificent.. I just wish they were a 'viable' colour!
and 13.5"!! thats tiny! awww .. is he also quite light?

And thank you everyone! I need to take more pictures, as with all poodles, he like shis cameras ;)
and Tess.... In my case its a complete obsession... when I'm at school my pockets are full of poo bags, treats, leads, whistles, clickers. All my money goes on training :s
he's eating my money.. sometimes literally!!
