Hi Samantha, and welcome! I have been away at the cottage, so I'm still catching up on all the news. Always glad to have another poodle lover, and good for you for rescuing your furbabies. Poodles everywhere need loving homes!

Great to have you and your fur-babies as part of the team, Samantha. 'Looks like you decided to declare independence from those extra pounds—good for you! I think you're REALLY going to like this group. Spark on!
Welcome, welcome, welcome! Any standard lover is a friend of mine! I definitely enjoy MPS as I currently have 4 soon to be 5 standards ranging in age from 10 years down to 4 months! I think we have the weight thing in common too! Looking forward to pics of your babies!

Welcome Samantha! So glad to know you. I agree with Dee and can't wait to see pics of your baby's. We're a great team...come visit and post anytime. I work out almost daily. Joined 6/12, but started exercising at the end of May when my middle girl's boyfriend posted a pic on his website of her that also included me in the photo...not a very attractive pic of me to say the least. Opened my eyes to the real me...go look at it, it's on my page! Anyhow, would love to chat with you sometime and would love to be your friend if you'll allow me to be. We are so friendly in here...really. We talk about our dogs...on and on! Take care and hope to hear from you again soon! Kelly

Welcome Samantha! I, too, have loads of weight to lose, but right now I just use this site to draw strength from all my "poodle loving" friends. My plate is too full (no pun intended but probably a true statement both ways-hehe) to concentrate on losing weight right now.
Can't wait to see pictures of your rescue babies.
Whenever I''m tempted to eat something I shouldn''t, I remember the following: "Don''t eat for the moment''s pleasure, for when that moment''s gone, the consequences will stay with you, from that moment on."
Hi, My name is Samantha, and I just rejoined Spark this morning. I have a lot of weight to lose :( but I'm trying to be patient and stay positive (or should I say "paws-itive??") Anyhow, I have two sweet standards who are kind enough to give me a small corner of the sofa to sit on--lol--Gus is a big ol' brown boy (67 lbs!) and Gracie is a sweet little black girl (33 lbs--a smallish standard!). I definitely have MPS (multiple poodle syndrome!), and I've been wishing for a poodle puppy. I got both of these guys from rescues, so they came to me after the puppy breath was all gone! I'm looking forward to getting to know all of you--and your poodles-- Samantha
