Her name is Stanzi, short for Constanze.

stanzi-10-26-16Stanzi is is just seven weeks old.

Joy picks her up on November 5th, when she turns nine weeks.


She is from a litter of standard poodles at Spirit Standard Poodles in Northfield, Minnesota.

This is an breeder’s site you’ve got to see.

Jennifer Anderson is fiercely attentive to excellence in breeding, selectively placing her brood, grooming, training, showing, winning, the works.

Tessa still brings tears to my eyes when I think of her.  We know she has guided us to Stanzi.

And we know that Stanza is not another Tessa.

We are determined to allow her to be Stanzi. And not compare her.

She’s a small standard, probably grow to something like 45 pounds.

And she’ll love the hiking trails, I guarantee.

It will be a new adventure, which I can hardly wait to begin.
