The Poodle.












































Hellooo daaarling.... can't you just hear Cary Grant? I love this photo. I've been pinning poodles on pinterest (say that three times fast) and have found some great photos of other poodle people. My husband and I both grew up with poodles and it's almost hard to imagine not having one. I thought I'd share these folks that need no introduction.
 

 



















































































































































How could I show you all these beauties (ok the people & pig aren't bad either) and not include a few of my own?



































































 


 One last photo of my other most very very favorite little girl...Phoebe.









































Hope you all have a wonderful day and give hugs to your fur family members!

  1. Pippa looks so sweet and Phoebe looks a little left out! Everyone else has a fur coat to wear and she must go without. She's probably grateful, though, in the summer. Do they play together very much? Did you get them at the same time? How did you come to get a Chihuahua when Poodles were what you love?

  2. Phoebe hates the winter! She has her own little blanket that she burrows in and we only see her come out to go potty or eat! haha. Phoebe is 11 or 12 so she's not really too interested in playing with Pippa. Todd and I play with Pippa though ;-) she is just 5 but is still very puppyish. Both the girls are rescues. Phoebe was abandoned and left in a house for 3 days that we know of and a friend of mine rescued her and knew I was looking to get a dog. I thought I would get a poodle, but Phoebe needed a home, and she was so precious I could not resist. At that time I had a cat and Phoebe took to us right away, we were her family. The cat used to chase Phoebe and they played a lot, it was very sweet. I think Phoebe was sad when Trina (the cat) passed away. As far as Pippa, it was just a random thing. I saw her picture online and by that time Todd and I had been together just 11 months. I showed Todd her photo and said I have to have her! He said she's cute lets get her! She came from an awful puppy mill that was raded in Indiana. It was a really horrific, poor little girl had lived her first year in a tiny cage and could only circle. She had to live with a therapist that does dog rescue work so that she could learn to walk in a straight line (we still can't really walk her on a leash because she circles). She also was terrified of humans. She still wont let me pet her unless she comes to me. But, she has become a good snuggler! On her terms of course. ;-)

    1. My cat and dog are good playmates. I wonder if that is better than 2 cats or 2 dogs. I think of my cat and dog play is really their wild sides coming out--they're really hunting each other. That is so sweet that you rescued them. I tried to get a rescue Westie, but they were taking too long to get back to me. So when I saw Gabriel for sale in the paper, and marked down, and then found that he had the same birthdate as my oldest son, I got him. Of course, the rescue organization called me 3 days later! Oh well. I like that Gabriel was only 4 months and I could train him a bit. He does most commands except come or stay. Those he does when HE wants to.

    2. I'm a believer of signs and the shared birthday is for sure a sign! Gabriel was meant to be yours!

  3. Your babies are adorable. We had a minute poodle when I was a girl. We loved apricot and were so sad when she died. Clarice

    1. Oh thanks Clarice. I bet Apricot was adorable, that's the bad thing about having these sweet little babies...we don't get to keep them nearly long enough. :-(
