Hello! Asti is sooo cute! Great pics on your site! I am a believer in holistic medicine too...back in 2004, I became stressed after a big promotion, and after doctors couldn't figure out what was wrong with me, I turned to holistic medicine.

It was a fascinating and somewhat spooky experience...and it worked!!! Whatever was out of balance was resolved within a few weeks. Amazing!

Welcome!

Peace, Love, and everything Groovy!

WELCOME to THE POODLE CLUB. We have a bunch of fun here, & so will you & your baby. Please feel free to join us on the thread "what is your poodle wanting to share?". We'll have to find a nickname for your babies, like we did the Texas Trio.

I'm sorry to hear about the little girl you lost. A loss by an accident always seems to be more difficult to deal with than a loss by natural causes.

I don't ever remember a time when we didn't have a dog growing up. We had poodles, pekingese and rottweilers. We whelped a litter of pekingese and two litters of rottweilers. This is the first litter of poodles.

This pup will be my 3rd poodle. I agree, they definitely try to train their humans. They are very smart and have a unique way of communicating with us that I love.

I am aware that they can change color. The poodle we had growing up started out as a cafe au'lait. He ended up as a cream.

My oldest poodle, Boo, started out black. She's 11 years old now, and while she's still mainly black she does have some silver streaks in her ears.

I thought it was most common for them lighten in color as they grew older, but Asti is getting darker. She started out almost cream-colored, but she's grown significantly darker. That's fine by me though. I've never seen a champagne before, and apparently they are somewhat rare. I find that funny because she looks absolutely dirty!

At any rate, I imagine by the time old age sets in she'll be white.

Congrats! And welcome! And if Asti decides to speak her mind in the poodle thread, that's fine too. Tara's not the youngest pup, but she's getting used to this strange human world. BTW, pups train their humans, especially intelligent poodle pups and moms, as you've probably figured out.

While Elvis, the poodle in my current picture, is a little older than Tara and only comes over for puppysitting, I still remember the day he was born, and his explorations of his world and his littermates. Fortunately, I didn't have to feed them around the clock and also that all survived. Losing even one would've been so sad (and was sad 2.5 years later when his sister unfortunately ran into a hubcap and broke her neck... I stilll miss her...)....

Anyway, one warning you've probably heard: Poodles may change fur color. Elvis's biggest brother was chocolate colored for the first few months, but now is white. Elvis, however, mostly retained his mom's apricot coloring.

I would have to agree!

I was fortunate enough to be there when the puppies were born. Three days later the youngest one developed an illness. For 3 weeks my mom and I nursed him around the clock. He passed away on my watch. It was very devastating. We knew these things happened, but feeding every 3 hours around the clock for 3 weeks leaves you exhausted, and very attached.

It's an amazing thing to watch the changes a puppy goes through in a single week. All the puppies have been spoiled rotten from the moment they were born.

Awww. I was surprised my husband was so willing to get another...we had 3 already. Of course, my mother was the one who bred the pups, so that could have had something to do with it.

She's so spoiled. She gets lots of kisses, and just looks at me out of the corner of her eye when she's getting them. Just rotten!

I finally brought home my new baby! I have lots of pictures posted on my SparkPage Photo Album.

Her name is Asti. She is a champagne-colored toy poodle. Born June 26th, she was 7 weeks old last Friday. My goodness, how she's changed in 7 weeks!
