Meet my Toy Poodle Puppy

This is Oliver, our recent addition to our family! He is a Red Toy Poodle born in Singapore.

We couldn’t be more in love with him. He has brightened up our lives in a way I cannot describe in words.

As first-time dog owners, the learning curve is steep but worth it.

In this new section of the blog My Poodle Diary, I aim to write about all the wonderful experiences we’re going through while raising our puppy. From potty training to diet, exercise, fun, trick training… I want to share what I’ve learned, the ups and downs and all the stuff in between.

For now, let’s start with a Meet My Dog Q&A!
