Paisley went into heat only three days after she arrived in her new home. Thankfully we started interviewing for a potential mate months ago. There were a few options:
All are fantastic dogs but the lucky gentleman for Paisley is: Duke!
Duke is a beautiful 60 pound pure white poodle. He has a great family friendly temperament (we put him through the ultimate test at our house and at the Thompson's house!) and he comes from champion, health tested lines. We've been having Duke spend some time at the Hatch house with Paisley and then he has gone over to the Thompson's to give both of them (mostly Paisley...) a break. He will 'visit' once a day for four or five days and then he will head back to his home in Utah.
Paisley and Duke hit it off right away and we are anticipating puppies in the middle of May! They will be ready to go to their new homes around the 4th of July.
