Tais is the youngest member of our Poodle family. She is very special, as every baby is, and Vlad is indulging her in every way.

She was born very small...

...and became too busy and restless. Life is so exciting, and there are so many things to do, rather than getting full stomach!..

During hot summer months she liked to lay on cold bricks beside fireplace.

Life is good!

Taya likes to play as much as Philippe does but requires your participation. She is the same type of fidget Lera is. With all that said, she is true apricot in character, and, to my delight, is a smaller version of her granddam Lora. She likes to sleep in the same spots, she likes the same games, she likes the bath tub just as Lora does - aren't we water dogs, after all? - and gives you all the trouble the apricot dog can. Oh, she has selective hearing, too. She only chooses to listen to you if it coincides with her intentions. Who said, it is not in the color?

Taya's show career was quite exciting.

Taya is in good hands!

When the time came, Taya brought to life a litter of black, blue, cream, and apricot puppies.

They took only the best traits of their mom and dad, and we are very pleased by their success in conformation and obedience rings.
