Since the pups have been on solids they have become proper playful pups :-) All are tucking into their food with enthusiasm and all are now chunky little pups with the larger apricot pups now being a similar size to the smaller silvers.
On the subject of silver pups, at the beginning of this week I took a proper look at the colour of Dollars pups and it turns out that only 3 of the pups are silver, the remaining 5 are blues. This has caused 1 lady to change her mind about having a pup so there is now a blue girl available along with one blue boy. There is much confusion about the colour blue, largely caused by people calling bad blacks blue. Blue, to my mind, is a deeper grey than silver and it has a blue hue to it, it is not a steel or grizzled black colour. Here is a link to a true blue Blue Poodle.which I have permission to use, I am hoping to receive some puppy and changing coat pictures to put up as well. The blues do take longer to reach their final colour, 2 to 4 years, but I think they are beautiful and worth the wait.
We still have 2 apricot boys and one apricot girl looking for homes, they are cracking little pups and have inherited their mums happy friendly nature.
