Blossom is a funny girl, very bubbly and is absolutely fearless.
She has Razz's sense of Joie de vivre combined with Paris's affectionate nature
Blossom is also VERY independent, creating her own games of play and equally content
being by herself chewing on a toy or bone, or having fun games of tag with her brothers and sisters.
As a puppy Blossom found great pleasure in tormenting the big dogs with her endless pranks of scaring them,
by hiding in the bushes or stalking them like a lion in the bushes and then jumping out
high in the air landing on them when they least expect a scare from the small red fur ball.
Blossom has now grown into a wonderful gentle sweet natured girl just like her mother.
Judge's have commented at every show about Blossom's excellent shoulder lay back,
high tail set and that she is a very square girl with plenty of rear angulation and of course that precious rich darkest of red coat.
Blossom is an amazing show quality girl who really enjoyed being in the show ring and hearing the clapping.
Blossom earned her Grand Championship at 8 months of age over adults, including her own mother and father !
It was a great disappointment to me when Blossom decided she didn't enjoy doing any Dog Sports, much preferring
to be left at home and going for walks and watching movies cuddled up on the couch.
I have had to make a big choice in Blossom's best interest, to find her a pet home.
Blossom is 100% healthy completing all her OFA and DNA health clearances.
Blossom has never been bred, as my goal is to only use Total Poodles in our breeding program.
Tough choice for us to make to find Blossom a new home, but we feel she will be well loved
and enjoyed and happiest just being a well cherished pet (just like her mother Paris)

Always sad for us to watch one of our Poodle family
leave with another to begin a new life, but we know Blossom will be cherished.

BEST IN SHOW !!!!
4 months of age weighing 22.6 lbs
Blossom took a Best Puppy In Show at her first dog show and appearance in Public
winning many hearts with her devilish antics and developed a ring side cheering section.
Judge's comments were: "I've shown Poodles before and wow, she has amazing shoulder lay back,
which is so hard to get, and is a nice square puppy. You should be pleased with your breeding"
Of course Blossom brings me back down to earth by promptly taring
a huge hole in my nylons which I had to wear the rest of the show. (did I mention she is a bit of a "devil dog" ??LOL )
Standard Poodles never show on a table, however this was the last show in extreme heat
and sun and everyone had had enough of bending over, so we used the table.
Notice the Judge's expression when she feels Blossom's shoulders and tells me how VERY pleased she is to see this.
