Here's what we have learned so far about toy poodles. They grow to be about 10 inches tall and no more than 7 lbs (smaller than miniature poodles). Right now ours weighs about 1 lb. They are very smart, telepathically intuitive, and easily trained to do just about anything (think circus). They're good watchdogs although obviously not good guard dogs. If you don't shave their bodies or faces, they stay puffy and soft and won't ever look like the poodles with bracelets and pompoms on their tails (ours has a clipped tail and ears anyway).
The only problem now is what to name her. Originally we were thinking of naming the dogs as a pair: Abbott and Costello, Merry and Pippin, Sherlock and Watson. There is always Don Quijote and Sancho Panza. Then we could shorten one to Don-Qui (although no one here would get the joke). My other thought is naming both or one after something here, but so far I can't think of anything good except maybe Oui/Ouisita (two of Abuelita's nicknames).
SO we need some help ASAP. Please comment or email to tell me what good names you can think of for our precious little (female) dog!
