Video: Zelda pups- a milestone

I was sitting in the puppy box today with Aiden and Kenzie, and just happen to catch a couple milestones on film.  I thought you guys would get a kick out of it.  Enjoy!

That was hilarious! Kids, pups, moms – it has it all. The howling was so cute! Poor Zelda, I’m sure motherhood is a tad bit more trying now the puppies are bigger and moving more. Good thing you happened to be right there as they discovered the up and over!

Zelda & River pups: 3 weeks old

It has been an exciting week for the puppies.  They have moved to the kitchen from our master bedroom.  They now have to deal with all the everyday sights, sounds, and life of a busy home with two 4 year old kids!  This week again I was left taking their photos alone, with no adult hands to help.  However, I managed to get a few decent shots.  Enjoy!

I have 4 deposits on this litter.  The last puppy will be held until a better understanding of temperament can be determined.  I have two other homes interested, but they have very specific needs which may or may not be met by this litter.  If you are interested, please contact me soon, so you can be put on my waiting list.  For those interested in adopting one of these little gems, price for a pet is $1500.00 on limited registration (no breeding rights). These pups should be suitable as performance dogs, therapy dogs, and wonderful pets.  The parents are very stable dogs with outstanding temperaments.  They will probably be small to mid size as adults (20-25 inches at the shoulders).  Contact me at anuttapoodle@aol.com for an adoption application.  References required as my puppies only go to the best homes and as forever members of your family.

Between the video yesterday and the pictures today, my heart is full! They are so adorable. Good job with the sit-stays!

I couldn’t get Leith to sit to save my life and he’s so wooly he looks like a cocker!! That boy is going to be a coat growing fool. I was happy to get a bare handful useable out of the 100 or so I took!! Next week will be bath, blow dry, face/tail shave, then photos!! Should be fun. :)

Aiden and Kenzie’s infant baby blankets came in handy. :) I wasn’t sure how the pups would do with the pink and blue behind, but it worked out ok. Black can look really funny with the wrong background.

VIDEO: Zelda x River litter 3 weeks old

I decided to step back from working on the blog to do short video of the puppies.  Please excuse the Star Wars Lego game running in the background.  I had no idea it was so annoyingly loud until I had the video done.  Also Jazz and Mocha were outside barking their heads off playing right by the kitchen windows.   Just think of it as great socialization for your new puppy. :)

What a darling video! Thanks for sharing. :)

Oh my golly, they are just too lovable. It must be so much fun getting to see them beginning to play and learning about the world. Way cool.
I still have Radar’s baby collar, tucked away safe. Every now and then when something in life is feeling especially hard, I wear it as a bracelet. It’s hard to be completely stressed out when you’ve got a dog who loves you on one side, and a reminder of when that dog first arrived in your life as a puffy cloud of black fur on the other.

BLOG: A New Look!

For the past several weeks I have been searching for a new blog theme/program that would accomplish my eventual mission, to completely drop my static website and use only a blog.  My previous theme did not offer a few important features, as well as being inflexible to change.  I asked friends who blog and also had static websites that they converted to a blog only website.  Some of them are photographers and though I am not a professional photographer, my post are often extremely media heavy.  So, with that in mind, I decided to go with ProPhoto Blog.  It will take me a few weeks to get everything changed over, but I think I have a decent start.

Aside from esthetics, some noteworthy changes are:

1.  There is now a “HOME” button.  Before if you clicked “Anutta Blog” it would take you back to the home, but you had to know it would do that, there was no real home option.

2.  There are now links at the bottom of each blog post showing the previous and / or next blog you can read.

3.  There is a “Subscribe by Email” option listed in several locations throughout the site.  If you choose this method, you will receive email updates about the blog when I post something new!!  This is my favorite feature that was not available on my previous ‘free’ template.

4.  It has a mobile site option.  I’m going to leave it enabled because it does make for a faster load time and organizes the photos and text so you don’t have to zoom to read.

Please bare with us during the change.  I have a lot to tweak.  Let me know what you think so far (both good and bad) and what you would like to see me add!!

Mocha ~ 9 Months old!

Mocha took a trip to my fellow poodle lover, Kathryn Bolin of Aurak Poodles, to get her hair trimmed.  She was looking pretty rough, but now she is simply GORGEOUS!!  Thanks Kathryn!

Mocha is a very interesting dog.  She is different than my other poodles and a bit of an oxymoron at times. Here are a series of Photos to explain my brown girl.

 

MOCHA IS LAZY

Down Stay's are my FAVORITE!

 

MOCHA IS SILLY

This is not photoshopped! It was simply serendipity!

 

MOCHA IS LOVING

You are my favorite, Mom!

 

MOCHA IS DEVOTED

I love my kids!

 

MOCHA IS OBEDIENT

Ok, I can stay. Can I lay down now? It is easier to stay laying down ya know.

 

MOCHA IS WATCHFUL

Hark, who goes there!

She is a cliche’ of the brown Poodle.  They say they are clowns, they say they are silly, they say they are slow to grow up.  Yep, that’s my Mocha.  Most Standard Poodles are very regal, very gentle, very empathetic to those around them, even as puppies.  Mocha is more like a… well a Labrador.  She’s all about her food, puts on weight easy, and absolutely 100% goof ball puppy!  We love and adore our Mocha girl, she is showing us an entirely different side to Poodles!

What a beautiful and expressive girl! She must be a lot of fun to have around. :)

She’s beautiful, Becky! What a fun post. I literally laughed out loud at the goofy picture of her. Great timing!

Valerie B - February 4, 2012 - 12:35 am

I love Mocha too!
