I also wanted Red but a Tpoo. For almost 14 years I loved my little black Casey! LOL He was exactly what I needed. And I was that for him. Gosh, I miss him. I'm in touch with a breeder who has red apricots pups. I'm 3rd in line! Woo Hoo.So happy to see this thread!! I wanted a red poodle and am still not entirely sure how I ended up bringing home my beautiful black parti girl. ? I like to think we get the dog we need, not necessarily the dog we think we want. But I still hope for a red someday! Will live vicariously through these photos for now.
