Our 2.3 year old female silver standard poodle

June 1-30, 2021

Sierra, our 2.3 year old silver standard poodle, has been with us now for over 2 years. We adore her, as she adds joy, entertainment and love.

I weigh & measure Sierra once a month, so here are her stats as of June 30, 2021: 14″ collar, girth: 24″, height to shoulder: 25″ weight: 34.5 lbs.

June has been hot & windy on the ranch. I am trying to figure out how best to deal with the massive amounts of weeds that get stuck in Sierra’s long hair. Her fur is like velcro, everything sticks to it, making brushing mandatory every time she runs in the yard. I have considered vacuuming the outside (just kidding), or blowing it away with a leaf/snow blower. Ranch life has proven to be a challenge with a standard poodle, hence why many shave off the fur, leaving a short curly coat. The long poodle fur was one of the reasons I started with standard poodles to begin with back in 1986 (besides being non allergic). Artificial grass is looking very appealing, no mowing, no watering, easy to clean and does not shed weeds onto poodle fur!
