Everything happens for a reason though, and this could not have worked out better than it did. One of the breeders Mom had contacted prior to placing the deposit on aforementioned puppy still had a gorgeous girl available, since the breeder was considering keeping her for herself. She. Is. Perfect. The breeder is absolutely incredible to deal with as well; so helpful, so attentive to the puppies and works incredibly well with Mom. This is a relationship that'll last past getting Puppy home, which is something Mom really wants as this is our first Poodle.
She is currently 7 weeks old, and comes home on July 10th. She's red, so she matches ME! She has wonderful bone structure, pigment, and a lovely coat. She should be on the smaller size for Standards when it comes to weight; around 45lbs or so. I am 10.5lbs, and Pike should mature around 17lbs or so. Don't worry about Puppy being too big for us; we're sturdy, and I will continue to rule with an iron paw. In this case, size does not matter.
Random fun fact: Puppy's birthday is only 5 days before Mom's.
She has the perfect temperament for both Mom and myself and Pike. She is very friendly and people oriented, is calm and easy going without being a push over, and confident without being bossy. Without further ado, meet my new sister:
We are torn between her registered name being Moulin Rouge or Drops of Jupiter, but her call name is Rosa and it's so fitting! Can't wait to have another minion! A matching minion, no less! Everyone give Rosa a big, Blogville welcome!
|We're waiting impatiently for you, baby sis!|
