My New Puppy!

Hello! I'm new here. My name is Hope and I am the proud owner of a 8 month old Black Standard Poodle named Stella. My husband surprised me at Christmas. We had another Standard before her who suddenly at 7 months old got sick, she started frothing at the mouth, nose and eyes running and couldn't stand anymore. After spending 2 days at the vet and having every test done imaginable I decided to let let go and put her to sleep. Even though we have to school aged girls and my husband in the Canadian Military I was incredibly lonely. Stella was 3 months old when we got her, she was VERY timid and thin! She now weighs 49 lbs and is so smart, house breaking was a snap and she knows all of her commands. (I was too lazy to go to obedience traing) LOL! I am soooo grateful for Stella Her temperment is actually better than the Standard Poodle I had before!

Hi, No poofy hair here! LOL. I tried to cut it myself the other day. Let's just say I'll be walking her at night for the next few weeks !LOL She's good, she sat patiently for 4 hours through the bathing, blowing drying, combing and cutting. She's got patience I'll give her that! lol
