Happy Thursday to you! I've been meaning to get some pics of Copper, so I can keep track of her growth. Last night provided me with the perfect opportunity. WE all gathered together to celebrate hubby-first Father's Day and secondly his birthday is a couple of weeks. Our daughters held a Luah and it was so much fun; I'll post pics of all the festivities tomorrow, but for now look how much Copper has grown.
Hunter hadn't seen her in  a couple of weeks and also seemed really surprised at how big she's gotten. She can now outrun him and if in her harness she keeps up with him.  They will have lots of play time while we are away.

She has the greatest expressions--some are goofy and some just melt your heart.  She is about 30-35 lbs now, at almost 6 most and getting close to her full grown size(I think). Never having had a Standard Poodle before, I'm not sure how long they continue to grow.
After the party, we had 7 granddaughters spend the night-it was such fun and the best sleepover ever. Today we all had a great breakfast, walk and now are playing cards. WE will head to the pool in a half an hour.  It's all good and so much loving.

  8. She's such a beauty!!! If she's like a Lab, she may keep growing until she's almost a year old (but it slows down after 6 months). What a sweetie!

  9. Copper is beautiful, Noreen, the last photo, really shows her pretty face and expressions!
    You are so messed to have the grandchildren near by, and the sleepover reminds me of times gone by that I have tucked wonderful memories away in my heart!
    Thanks for your sweet note.
    Have a blessed and Happy July 4th,

  10. Hi Noreen! Copper is getting big! I showed these photos to my husband and he thinks Copper and Wilhelmina could be twins :)Standard Poodles can grow until they are two years old. Copper should get another growth spurt at around eight months of age .She should get taller and weigh more too once her muscle mass is formed.She is a cutie for sure :)
