Poodle Owners - please share your puppy buying experiences with us with our new visitors! The Testimonial Section of the website allows you to upload your Feedback directly onto the website, but does not allow photos.
Got photos to share? The Feedback Section allows for both photos and longer emails/letters - but you need to email them to me first, for me to upload onto the website for you.
Visitors be sure to visit both pages to see what our Puppy Owners have to say and see pics of the poodle kids at their new homes...
Love what you see but the time is not right, or your preferred baby just got snapped up by someone else???
Subscribe to our website - this will put you on my update list for new litters, announcements and the occasional special sale or price reduction for that "last pup from a litter" that is not mentioned on the website!
No strings attached, your information will not be sold, when you are no longer looking - simply unsubscribe.
How much deposit is required to reserve a pup?
Deposit is usually 50% of the purchase price and are generally not refundable unless something is wrong with the pup. Please go to the Deposit Page to have a look at a sample contract and to familiarize yourself with it before reserving a pup!
There is a pup on your website that says "Pending". What does that mean - is it sold?
Pups listings that say "Pending" or "On Hold" usually have either a deposit in the mail [snail mail] and I will need to make time allowance for that payment to reach me, or I have a definite pick-up scheduled within the next few days without a deposit. About 90% of the time, that pup will be reserved or sold within a few days, but every once in a while there will be a no-show or cancellation. Feel free to ask or request an update on this pup to double check on availability. Pups that say "Reserved" have a deposit received and are no longer available - and no - I won't sell a pup that has a deposit to another person, even if you offer me extra money for it.
Do you take checks?
Sorry no more personal or bank checks. Cash only at time of pick-up for the remainder of your balance or the full purchase price for a pup ready to go. Deposits and Installment Payments may be made via Paypal, Mobile Phone Paypal, US Postal Money Orders, NetSpend and Only1 Reload Packs, as well as Moneygram [Walmart] or Western Union. For more detailed info on payments, pls go to the Payment Page.
Can I make several smaller payments instead of one or two big ones?
Payment Plans are generally available on pups under 5 weeks of age - the amounts and frequency of payments depend on the purchase price and the age of the pup. If you want to do this, the sooner you reserve your pup, the more time you will have for smaller installments! If you need more time than that, ask me about upcoming or planned litters - I can give you an idea when we have new babies and you can make as many small payments in advance that you are comfortable with, and then choose from a new litter once they arrive.
Pick-Up, Delivery or Meeting, Shipping.
Use this zipcode to pull up directions to Lyons GA, just outside of Vidalia . If you are majorly from out of the area or out of state and are driving to pick up, I will gladly offer as usual to meet you along the I 16, I 95 or I 75 corridor = halfways or oneway up to 100 miles for me. I need you to work with me on scheduling though, as I work most weekends. During the week is always easier for me, as I can set my own schedule then. I have an entire page devoted to this information - please click here for more info!
Are your puppies AKC registered?
Lately I get this question quite often - so I rewrote that section on my website and made a separate page for it - look for the answers here.
`Eclat is our
blue merle miniature
[now there is a mouthful, LOL].
When this pup was born to Lala & Imp - with her gorgeous blue merle pattern and the added wow effect of two bright baby blue eyes, I just knew a plain jane name wasn't going to do for her!
She needed a special name for me and since I was in the "E" year - `Eclat just fit the bill for her!
`eclat is french and means the following:
é·clat (-klä, klä)

`Eclat is an Imp x LaLa daughter [LaLa - Lullabye actually was her full name, is a LaVerne sister and also goes back to my very first home bred poodles].
Of course when I picked this real big name for her, I had no idea that she knew what it stood for and decided to take it and run with it...
When you look at the Thesaurus antonyms, she managed to make them all work for her, LOL:
brilliance + effect - oh yeah, does she ever!
confidence, show + display - `Eclat is my resident clown and she loves playing to an audience. Goofy doesn't even come close to describing her. She is 5 this year and has just started to slow down just a wee bit - there is hope in sight!
flair and vigor are her middle names
splendor - don't take her to Petsmart trying to grab a quick bag of dogfood on a busy Saturday - you'll be in there for hours explaining who and what she is and talking merle genes for ever...
She has the prettiest eyes - they are pale powderblue with a darker blue star/petal pattern [that shape varies with her moods], around the iris. I need to have a talk with her about letting me take some close ups of her eyes...
One of the things with her - she hates getting her pictures taken - she either makes it look like a deer caught in the cross light, or she is latched on to me and I can't get enough distance to take a decent one. You also see loads of them where she on her way back to latch back on to me. With her I really could use a second person to take photos off, as she is always totally focused on me - she is either a busy running blob investigating something or she is on her way back to me, in which case I tend to get photos like the ones below:
While `Eclat isn't one of my best mothering poodle personalities [I mean really - who wants to sit with squirming, worming, pooping babies one has to clean up after, if one could hang out with ones' human mom instead?] - she certainly can do great looking colors and good looking babies.
