Here's my Beauty...
This gorgeous, gentle and super affectionate fluff –ball is my dog, Lola. She’s what you call a Parti-colored Standard Poodle. She’s a beauty and a rarity. I wanted to post about her because just recently she’s become a Mommy!
Awhile back we became the proud foster parents of this beautiful breeding dog. We were selected by this excellent breeder: Lou Lou Poodle, situated here in Quebec. What makes this breeder exceptional is the care she gives to her animals. She is the only breeder for Parti-colored Poodles here in Quebec, and she also has a fostering program. The way it works is that rather than keeping all of her breeding dogs in cages with no quality of life- this breeder, Lucy (yes, that’s her name too:) occasionally seeks out potential families that can give these dogs a real family life.
The notion is that a happy and well kept dog that is used to being around children and is frequently walked and has ample room for romping and playing, will in turn be a well-socialized and wonderful dog. Consequently, this should also set the stage for producing well-adjusted pups. So, when I showed interest in this program, Lola, then a 9-month old pup was matched to our family. She officially became our dog, with the agreement of having her bred by the breeder when…nature called. Once Lola turns 4 years-old, the Breeder will have her operated and she will be officially off duty. This is what I call controlled and responsible breeding.
So, this March, Lola gave birth to 6 cute pups. She stayed at her ‘godmother’s’ house (the breeder) for what we call her ‘maternity leave’.
Her babies are weaned and she’s so glad to be home with us, her family again; where she can now go back to her role of being the cherished ‘baby’ of our household.
Take a look at her pups!
