These are updated pictures from some of the wonderful families that have adopted some of my Tiny Toy, Toy and Miniature Poodle puppies. This just serves to show how wonderful and thoughtful that people still are in this world of sometimes very sad times. This page lifts my spirits and so I would like to share it with everyone and try to lift the spirits of all who take the time to read about good things in this world.

Oh my gosh, she is absolutely adorable! I love her little face!
She did just fine in the crate. As soon as I got her home I put her down on a potty pad. She peed & pooped almost immediately. No mess in the crate at all.
I'll send pictures when she gets a little older.
And thanks so much for the haircut, she is just too cute for words.
Keep in touch,

Hope all is well! Cookie is doing great, she went to the vet yesterday, and is healthy J Cookie weighs 5.8 pounds, and she got a hair cut by my mom. Now that Cookie has her borditella shot, we will take her to the dog loft to get another hair cut. She is a good dog, she is so much fun and just so sweet. She is starting to teeth, and chews on everything including me, but as soon as I say NO, then she listens right away. I was amazed at how good she was at the vet, she was so calm, and just wanted everyone to pet her, she didn't even notice the shots or the thermometer testing. Cookie gets to go places with us and she enjoys car rides, she is calm everywhere we go.. Cookie is very attached to me, she follows me everywhere :). Happy fourth of July.

I bought an apricot mini poodle from you about a year ago (from the may 28 2007 litter), and I just have to write to tell you how much I love her. I take her to horse shows every other weekend, and she just loves being the center of attention! She has even adopted he own chair, where she just sits and watches people go by.
She is an amazing little dog and I couldn't be happier with her!

Miah survived Hurricane Dolly! She was quite frightened by the wind, however. She is doing very well here and is really growing. She is a lovely baby and great addition to our family. Here is a photo of her taken 7/25/08. I think she was born on 4/25/08...am I right? I cannot remember the name of her dam, but her sire is named Chewbacca.
Have a blessed weekend!

Subject: puppy we bought
Hi Paula: sorry my wife and I haven't gotten back about the little male black and white miniature we got from you earlier this year. We eneded up naming him Rufus-he is the cutest, most mischievious and loving little guy I've ever seen. He loves to go fishing with me, ride in the car, just be with us every second. He is perfect for our life style. We've been so busy getting set up to build at Lake Fork (finally starting next month) I have neglected writing to you about him. After having hunting dogs and terriers, I never thought I would like Poodles, but Rufus has won me over. He is too smart. I still don't know why someone didn't beat us to him. Just glad they didn't.
Thanksfor a super little dog.
David and Reggie
PS: My Wife is usually not one for showing a lot of attention to pets, but she can't resist Rufus.

Subject: Turning into my Mother and I was caught red handed (err blue pawed) - email from Ruby Tuesday
My Mom told me to write an email to you to tell you several things.
One , on my legs, chest, the top of my head and underneath, I have turned into my Mother (cream color). Mommy and Daddy still think that I am cute as a button. A fairly recent picture of me is attached to this email so you can judge for yourself.
I weigh slightly over 10 pounds now at eight months old.
Second , I chewed up an ink pen and stained the carpet in our guest room. I couldn't deny that it was me because Mom caught me red handed (err blue pawed).
Third , I have made friends with Target, the cat. We bark, hiss and chase each other but it's all in good fun. Sometimes we even touch noses very gently.
Love, Ruby Tuesday

I just wanted to again share with you how happy I am with Bailey. I took off work today for a "Bailey Day". We went to the pet store and she got all kinds of goodies. We then went visiting to my doctor's office and then to my office. She is so social.......not afraid, well behaved around people, very loving, lets others hold her with my permission. I can't tell you how many comments were made about how social and well behaved she is. I told them that the majority of that comes from you and your great work!!
I never want my dog to be mean or hateful around people and she is just great! They told me at work that she is better haved and more calm that a lot of the employees children that come up to visit!
She has had a wonderful day and is very spoiled and tired. Mommy has spent A LOT of money on Miss Bailey today.......but she is well worth it......and VERY VERY loved!!

It's been a while since I've sent you any updates. Cappy is doing wonderful. He now weighs 12 1/2 lbs. I have not had his knees checked again yet, so I don't know if everything is okay for breeding or not. But, as soon as I get a chance to get him checked out for that, I will let you know.
Anyway, he is truly a joy. He follows me everywhere I go, even when I go to the bathroom, he follows me right in, or he'll sit at the door and wait for me. And yes, he sleeps with me too!! LOL He is quite a character, so much personality this little guy has. I talk to him, and I think that he thinks, he truly understands what I'm saying. He thinks he's human!! I just wanted to send you an update and let you know how he's doing, and also am sending you a picture of him in his Joker costume for Halloween.
Thank you again for allowing me to bring him into my family, he is truly a joy.

It's about time for me to send an update of how Tempi is doing. She has become quite the little horse show poodle. Appart from cheering me on at my local quarter horse shows, Tempi also has traveled to my larger Dressage shows. She is now an expert at sneaking into hotels! Attached is a picture taken at the Milti State Invitational show, pictured with my show horse, Rohos Classic. It took quite a few tries to get all three of us looking at the camera, but I think that the result was more then worth it!
I hope everything with you is going well. I can't express how much I love my poodle! I have your site saved, just in case I need that second poodle. :)
Thanks for raising a wonderful dog!

He is one that has to take all the toys and keep them close to him, so the others can't have them....LOL I'm sending you a picture of him with some toys that he's keeping watch over, and he finally fell asleep with them.
Cappy is truly a joy. He has the most incredible personality ever!!!

Good morning Paula,
It's about time I gave you an update on Mr. Dante. We bought him from you July 23, 2006. He's a miniature black and his sire was Schwartz. His mother bit off one of the toes on his back foot when she was cutting the umbilical cord. It was pouring rain the day we drove out to get him. One of the concerns we had was with our female Westie, Annabelle. She was/is protective of me. Well, our guess that she'd be fine with a puppy was a good one and she's been good with him since we brought him home.
He is beautiful. We have friends from Tulsa, Charles and Kelley, who came to visit recently. Dante loves to chase balls. His favorite is a blue racquetball, I think because it bounces. I'd thrown it for him, he darted out grabbed it and then pranced back to me. Kelley's family raised and showed poodles for years. She looked at me and said, he has beautiful lines! Thought you'd like to hear that. We have a grandson, Aidan who will be 2 in May, who adores Dante. We were in Cheyenne, Wyoming this summer for my father in law's 75th birthday party with Dante and Aidan and his daddy came from South Dakota. Aidan had so much fun with Dante. He would climb on the couch and throw Dante's ball over the railing down the stairs. Dante would go get it and then "hand" it to Aidan to throw again. When Dante would hand (OK, actually, let Aidan take the ball from his mouth) Aidan the ball, he'd say, Thank you Ante and run to the couch. I found a little black poodle beanie baby and sent it to Aidan. My son said he runs around the house with it saying Ante, Ante, Ante. Other than fetch, Dante loves to chase around our yard with Annabelle (the wicked Westie). The only problem is his being a poodle, this time of year, he is a leaf magnet! We live near Bear Creek Park and frequently, we take him and Annabelle for walks. He's the big talker when he sees the big geese until they look at him. It's a hoot. What else can I tell you about him? He's in excellent health, not a single problem other than he's really sensitive to Sargeant's flea and tick preventative that you put on their backs. We won't use that kind again. Poor guy, I gave him a bath and then put the stuff on him and then he had to get another bath to get it off again. Benedryl was what finally worked. He does like baths. Not overly fond of brushing but tolerates it. The ladies at the groomer's love him. One of his favorite treats is popcorn. He is really good at catching it in the air.
He is still very black but has in the past year developed cinnamon colored whiskers around his mouth and I'm starting to see a few white hairs in the black so he's not the purple black he once was. We had an opportunity to spend the last year in Jackson, Wyoming. He really shows up well on white snow by the way and he's not very fond of it. He really prances when he has to go out in the snow to go potty.
We love him dearly, he's delightful. We have had several people tell us that if we ever (not likely) need to give him away, they'd like to be first on the list.
Oh, and he likes toes. In the morning right after he goes outside for the first time and comes running back in, he HAS to give my toes a quick slurp. When he was a puppy, he would slurp any toes he saw but now it's just Jeff's and mine. Funny puppy. When we watch a movie, he likes to sit on the couch really close to my husband and rest his head on Jeff's stomach. It's pretty cute.
I'm sure once I hit send, I'll think of 10 other things I should have told you so don't be surprised if you see another email.
Take care and thanks a million for Dante,

Kathie here from Santa Cruz ,California.
Happy new Year. Hope you had a pleasant holiday season and your husband is well. Little Theo is so wonderful. He is the smartest puppy we have ever had. And he is so beautiful. He gets along with every pet and is so sweet.
He and Menoi (from YOU also) and Percy the mini schnauzer play like little Ban chi's running around and chasing each other. They are so funny. Theo is getting big! He will be one this week Jan. 8th. He is bigger then Percy and Menoi. We like him big. People always stop us on the beach ands ask what kind of dog he is. Most people haven't seen parti poodles. We let Theo and Menoi get off the leash at the beach and they run wild. Menoi loves the water and Theo is afraid of the waves.
Our house looks like a dog toy box. Bits and parts of stuffed toys and chewy toys. Menoi's mission in life is to remove all squeaky parts from the toys. Sleeping with all these dogs on the bed is tough. We all sleep in lately with the mornings being cooler then usual. Still it never gets below about 45 and the days are warmer. We go to the beach every day unless it is raining.
I see there is a little female from Dream and Hans. Seems she is sweet like Theo. Is she black or brown?
We should have a little female. How much potty training has she had?I look at your web site all the time. I love all the happy homes and pics.
