Some of them have no problems with their ears going up. Pyro and Smoke have very big ears and heavy ear leather so they might have had problems. Since I had to do theirs anyway I decided to do everyone, just to be sure. Of course the taping lasted less than 24 hours on everyone but Smoke! smile

They don't 'naturally' take to the water, really - but Kaynya LOVES to swim and Spike is learning to like it. I'll bring Spike (and maybe the puppies) down to lake Michigan either today or tomorrow - depends on the weather.

I prefer the clean face look. The other way they look more like a Terrier! smile

More questions from a know-nothing (me!):

1. Does a Powder Puff just happen? Apparently there was a long-haired in the mix somewhere?

2. Do you leave the long hair (other than face and ears) or do they get shaved like the others?

I think Pyro is "aces", but he does look different, and if you wouldn't have posted the second picture, I wouldn't have guessed he was a CC.

The hairless gene is the dominant gene in Cresteds (which is the opposite from all the other hairless breeds).

If you WANT a Powder Puff (PP) you MUST breed a PP to a PP.

The PPs only carry the H gene (Hair). The Hairless carry the HL gene (Hairless smile ).

If you breed an HL to a PP you could get all PPs, all HLs or a mix.

If you breed an HL to an HL you could get all HL or a mix (I don't think you would every get all PPs but I guess it's a chance).


As for grooming, for showing the PPs are shown in full coat. You can shave the face and ears or leave them furry. I prefer the clean look. smile

If you are not showing them you can trim them almost any way you want!

People who don't know about the breed are always taken aback when I tell them the 4 boys ARE from the same litter! smile

Thanks, Lauri, for not making it obvious how little I know!

I'm sure glad I don't have to decide which one to pick because that would definitely be a hard, if not impossible, choice. I think I tend to lean toward the hairless ones simply because that sets them apart, but then again, I love the frou-frou look of a show poodle, so ya gotta love the hair too...

They are just ridiculously cute!! wub The videos made me laugh out loud, especially when they were zooming around in the yard. Don't know which one it was, but one of them looked like a little llama. Wow, I'd have a hard time picking, but Pyro is just so unique. But they are all adorable. Okay, just keep all four and that solves it!! wink

That is what I was thinking! That Pyro looks like he isn't even related! They are adorable, always love your pics and vids.

Pyro left yesterday. frown He is going to a friend. She owns, breeds, trials and shows Newfies. She also feeds raw and does only Rabies vax! smile

I talked to her today and while Pyro was a bit overwhelmed by all the HUUUUUGE black heads trying to sniff him yesterday he's doing better today. Except when one of her 2 yr old Newf's tried to playbow at him - scared the CRAP out of him! smile

We will be co-owning him and showing him in conformation IF he turns out ok and his heart is fine.

I took the pups to my vet for a pupcheck. All 4 pups knees were good. All but Pyro had good hearts.

Pyro has a skipping heartbeat. While most dogs hearts go ta-dump, ta-dump, ta-dump, ta-dump, ta-dump, - Pyro's went ta-dump, ta-dump ....... ta-dump, ta-dump, ta-dump ....... ta-dump ..... ta-dump, ta-dump (and so on).

Doc listened for a couple minutes and said that his heartbeat leveled out after a bit and was fine. He will go back for a recheck in a couple weeks to see if it was just the excitement of being at the vet or something more serious.


Flash is leaving tomorrow. He is going with the stud dog owner. She may have a show home for him, she's waiting to hear back.

That leaves me with Blaze (who's bite is off a bit - further confirming his status as a pet puppy) and Smoke (who is growing more and more on me).

I will be sure to get pictures of Pyro with his new herd o'Newfies and share them with everyone. He may just become the first Chinese Crested with a Water Dog title!! smile

Since I can't add any more to my household, I hope Smoke stays with you. thumbup

Then I will get updates on the beautiful boy!

I hope pyro is Ok - hopefully just overly excited or something.

Have the puppies noticed their brother left home for adventures with newfies?

Not really. I am switching them to a crate instead of the x-pen ... just to make more room in my office again! smile

Oh no!!! Poor Pyro!!!! hugging I hope he's ok. See, there's why we couldn't take him - one dog with medical issues is enough!! (although her IBD is back under control!!!!).

Do heart issues run in crested?
