The Girls​​​​ of Solo Standards

Millie
Solo's Pony Express From Chapins
"Millie"​​


Millie is from
 a true "Royal size" line of poodles. 
She has a large, strong build yet remains quit athletic. She has that stronger head/nose I like to stamp my poodles with...no snippy, skinny noses here.  She has beautiful clear eyes that do not shy away from life...she looks right at you...sometimes right through you.  She is a soulful dog with great nerve!

Millie comes from a wonderful pedigree, her sire weighed 90 lbs.  Her sire is a line of dogs that I REALLY wanted.  It has little to do with color and everything to 
do with
my love of the very true Royal size, gallant attitude, gentle nature, intelligence and long healthy lives of this line.  Grandparent dogs play a huge roll in the puppies produced in any given litter...it is huge as a breeder to know your lines!   

Millie is a social dog who is good where ever she goes.  Overall easy going with that true & steadfast temperament I look for in my dogs.  You can find her at my side most of the time...she is very loyal to me, she loves people and is a NATURAL with children.  She is also a good watch dog here on the ranch.  I love & appreciate her companionship so much.   Millie is one of my foundation dogs as I move forth with her daughters and granddaughters.


Millie is 26 inches tall and a thick 76 lbs

Snowy winter of 2018-19   Drover, Cleo, Ty & Millie
Poodles do love snow!!

Mother-Daughter duo!

Cleo / "Cocoa"
Solo's My Daddy's A Drover
 "Cleo"

Cleo is out of my most loved Millie & Drover. 
I simply love this dog!  The real plus for me...as I breed for a very specific type of poodle...is that she is large, yet VERY graceful.  You will not beat her temperament...simply stated...top notch in body, mind & spirit! 

Cleo was a confident pup that caught my attention early on within the litter.  She is a happy soul with a biddable attitude. She is also a gentle dog with my grandchildren...a trait she gets from her sire, Drover.   


Cleo has faded as my pictures are most current to puppy pics..  She has blonde highlights!  Browns & Reds fade...it is a genetic allele in poodles that causes this.  No breeder should deny this.  Some fade a little and some fade a lot.  she is a truly majestic dog of great statue & noble character and people Are always in awe of her in when they meet her in person!


***As of fall 2019 Cleo has been spayed. She will be living with my mother-in-law very near us and visitinG Often!
I am going on with her 2 daughters 
​Summer & mavis!  I choose to re-tire her young as she had 13 pups in the 2 litters she gave us...takes a lot to raise 13 ups!

Esther
Solo's Martini Time Esther
"Esther"


we kept Esther from our fall 2017 litter of Millie & Ty. We sure are enjoying this fun-loving and super affectionate dog!  She is a hopeful here at Solo Standards and we plan on puppies out of her in 2020!

  We LOVE her affectionate, calm, attitude, this dog aims to please and listens so well.  She is showing plenty of size, looks like her parents in conformation with a nice strong build...actually, she is a great example of both Millie & Ty.  Essie sure has the strong head/thicker nose and that is the look I strive for in my pups.
She is staying a "true inky black" which is one of my personal favorite colors for poodles!

Essie really made a great impression on all the folks who came out this summer to pick puppies up...everyone commented what a beauty she was and how well behaved she is.  She only gets better all the time

Esther and Summer....half sisters...Best friends!

Esther turns 1 yr old                                           ​12 wksold

me with my 9 wk Old Esther

What a strong, noble looking  at 9 wks

This was a huge litter of 13 pups!!!  I did supplement even though Millie was doing a stellar job...these were big pups and they took to the bottle wonderfully.  My granddaughter Hattie, of course, loved it and keeps asking for more puppies to feed!!
​Solo's Summertime
"Summer"

Summer

​​(From our Ty/Cleo Litter summer 2018)
I called Summer my old soul when she was growing up with the litter...she spoke to me early on.
Summer has really good solid bone structure, she has long legs, a pretty head!  I just have to add...what a pretty mover and athletic young dog this one is!  You will hear some people say the really big poodles are not at athletic...well let me tell you that depends on the individual dog as Summer will prove them wrong. 
This dog is smart too...easiest dog I ever house broke as she remembers everything...show her once so she understands and then don't bore her with old stuff as she's got it!  
Her dark brown color with those clear soulful eyes like her mother (Cleo) are just added bonuses.  
Man...sounds like I am bragging, but Ty & Cleo, you gave me a good one for sure....and oh may I mention that Drover & Millie are her Grandparents...3rd generation Solo Poodle.
