Reggie are apricot, Miniature Poodle & Rocco are black, Toy Poodle had a trip to the vets this morning. Reggie is just over 10 weeks old & had his second vaccination & then both Reggie & Rocco had blood taken to be sent to Optigen to see if either carry the gene for prcd a type of PRA (Progressive Retinal Atrophy). I have found out that either a swab from inside the mouth or blood sample can be taken to test their DNA but blood is normally better as sure of enough DNA to test than a swab, also this blood test can be done from 4 weeks old so could of done Rocco when we first got him but was told that you had to wait until a year old, just shows you never to take earsay but go to the source of information & get hopefully the right answers. Now it is waiting for hopefully good news.
They were both very brave & I must admit as I learn more about this breed & their temperment they win me over more with each thing they show me. How fast they learn, how brave they are & the fact they like to be little hunters endears them to me. I have to admit grooming the little fluff balls is very relaxing too. To me the Poodle does not seem so tarty as Cavaliers though who will just love anyone unlike the Poodle who likes to get to know you first before gayly throwing its self at you unlike my Cavaliers who would seemingly go with any one.
Below are some photo's of Reggie & Rocco together & individually taken last night.
