Re: Long overdue update from Betty

Thanks guys for the nice comments on Betty... she is just a bit scruffier than she was in the pic above.... and maybe has gone a bit 'blonder' round her head / feet.. that poodle recessive gene! Its great to hear from you ARodders... have often wondered how you were getting on with him? Who is Fleur...

Re: Mini doods' height at 6 months?

Betty is a mini and she is about 15" to shoulder... (ish, as she never stays still...) She is 7 months and 13kg. Vet thinks she has done most of her growing now and will just fill out a bit more over the coming months....

Re: sleeping through the night - I wish!!
