Black, fuzzy dogs are hard to get good pictures of!
Thank you, she is very sweet!!! Yes, she has a natural tail. Its quite curly right to the last few inches, then it gets long and only slightly wavy...I think her attempt to look like a Lhasa. Definitely not pompomable! It curls and folds up over her back, and I know thats not a good trait in a poodle...but she's no show dog, so it doesnt bother me one bit.
I dont know if she has been groomed in the past year, she is very overgrown and had such horrible mats in her paws. I attempted to shave them (and realized very quickly how talented poodle groomers are), and well, mats are gone but she looks pretty funny now. I didnt dare touch her head - she will see a groomer in a few weeks. I did manage to brush her body out, I think got most of the tangles out. She is very poofy now
Your poodles are adorable, they look very nicely taken care of!!
Reminds me of my Grandmother's poodle-mix, who was for some reason named Ginger. Granny loved to take pictures (with her Brownie camera) and all of them turned out with the dog looking like a black ink blot.
Beautiful curls! She looks almost all or pure poodle to me, cutie pie. I really want either a red or apricot miniature, I love those dogs but I am up to my ears in a new black lab puppy that we brought back with us from North Carolina.
