Our 3.2 year old female silver standard poodle

Sierra May 2022May 1–31, 2022

Sierra started her 4th heat cycle in May. That means Sierra has to wear fancy pants for 21-28 days. Sierra is not allowed outside by herself, as we definitely do not want coyote poodle puppies!

We are planning on breeding her in 2023 and possibly keeping a silver female puppy. John has said it is my decision as to whether to keep a puppy or not, since I take care of all the “input” of feeding, grooming & training and John manages the “output” of pooping & peeing. The decision will be made once the puppies are born.

I had 2 standard poodles together, my mother dog, Iona, a black standard poodle and later I kept her white female puppy, Yogi. Grooming 2 standard poodles is very time consuming, with grooming weekly and brushing daily. I was 30+ years younger then. I loved my 2 poodles and they kept each other company, while I worked form home with them. So can I do this again? I will decide next year. In the meantime, we are loving being with Sierra and having her as our only dog.

I weigh & measure Sierra once a month, so here are her stats as of May 2022: 14″ collar, girth: 24″, height to shoulder: 25″ weight: 32.5 lbs. Sierra lost 1 lb during her heat as she is not as hungry.
