We have officially brought home our new girl, a Standard Poodle we are calling Gypsum, named after a mineral prevalent in the desert here where we live. She is 9.5 weeks old and just under 15 pounds. We got her from Lido Standards in Las Vegas, and we are very happy with her and with her breeder, Susie Osburn. Gypsum is very good-natured, healthy, and gets along with our cat and our baby daughter. Now it's on us to train her to be a wonderful adult! And a big learning curve for me as this is my first dog as an adult fully in charge. It's way different than being a kid growing up with dogs!
