Ruth!!! So glad you made it. I love that bird on top of your head. I hope it doesn't leave any poopie! LOL

I know what you mean about getting started on exercise. Man it is really hard to start it but if you just grit your teeth, take some ibuprofen and keep on doing it a little at a time and increase a little at a time, you will be shocked what you will be capable of!

I have a teacup apricot Poodle named April. She is the light of my life! This is my first Poodle and I am a Poodle person through and through now!

Glad you came!

Welcome, RASTUSS and Angus! emoticon I've had several miniature and toy poodles in the past. Now Tara the doodlepup's training me. She's probably a poodle-shih tzu mix, so I recognize the look your Mya is giving the camera. Tara's a lap puppy (supposedly a shih tzu trait), and prefers my chair as a lookout perch ... but try to leave without her...she'll leap down and (if I'm not watching) be out the screen door before it closes and running circles around my feet.

Anyway, dogs are a great reason to walk, as you noted. I'm sure you're right that Angus enjoyed the walk more than you. I'm also pretty sure that he can put Opie in his place when necessary. Not until I joined this group did I notice how much energy the standard poodles and labra- and golden-doodlepups have in the dog park!

So, keep on walking and sparking and we look forward to hearing more from you (and Angus too if he wants to put in a few barks' worth).

Jane and Tara.

Hi Ruth and Angus! Welcome to the Poodle Club! Mighty Joe is a 14 year old mini that is quite feisty for his age, though he sleeps a lot nowadays. We live in Southern California, but I'm a Jersey girl, so attitude was born in me.

I am a marketing / market research consultant by trade, and spend many, many years in the automotive industry.

Glad to have you here!

Gerry and Mighty Joe (Young)

Peace, Love, and everything Groovy!

Ruth and Angus (and all your other brood), welcome to our Poodle Club. My three have affectionately been dubbed "The Texas Trio". They are: Snickers, my sweet little tiny toy; Buffy, my little terror...she's a toy but bigger than Snickers and VERY goofy; and then my very sweet male: Raider, who is my BIG boy toy who is 10 lbs and is the lickiest dog around. He's so full of love he doesn't know when to quit licking you...he'll lick ya to death if you'll let him, lol. So glad you're here and good luck with your weight loss and healthier living goals. We are a very close knit group and boy do we get after it when it comes to texting on here and chatting!!! lol Good to have you here and God bless.

That is so true Ruth, the more exercise you get will work all the soreness away. When I first started exercising regularly, I thought I would die!
But keep on and it will get better!
Another thing too, is when the pounds start to come off, you will see that you can move better!
Since I got 36 pounds off of me, i can jump out of bed! Yah!!
Glad to have you here!

Rosa & Ginger, too!

Success is a journey, not a destination.
Focus on the process.

Thanks guys for the warm welcome! Angus and I are thrilled to be here and can't wait to get on with the fun. My bird is a mischievous Indian Ring neck Parakeet named "Jazzie" She fits into our menagerie of craziness and fun. Angus and I started walking last night for the first time and I am positively sure he enjoyed it much more then my cracking knees and aching back did. LOL! But I know it will get better the more I do it and the more weight I get off my poor knees!

What a handsome poodle you have. The other pups are great too. I have a huge soft spot for parrots. Is that an Eclectus? Kind of hard to tell from the pic.

I have a 13 pound apricot/red poodle. She is three years old and is my best buddy - her name is Maggie.

Have a super day.

Your other pups are precious too! Who is the bird on top of your head?
I have a little Toy Poodle named Ginger. I have another dog named Red, but she isn't a poodle.
We do love our Poodles here! We have chatty Poodles too that like to talk to each other about their daily adventures and such.
The thread is called WHAT IS YOUR POODLE WANTING TO SHARE? Be sure to let Angus join the Poodle Chat to get to know all the Poodles and Doodles!
Glad you joined us! See you on the Poodle Club!
Rosa & Ginger, too!
