Hi Everyone! I just joined SP and started dieting this Tuesday. My toy poodle/bichon mix, Lula, also needs to lose a few pounds, so she's doing it along with me! She's quite good at getting me to open her cookie jar far too often! Here's a link to her photo:

Hi, My name is Lisa and I have a 6 year old goldendoodle named Bella.

I will keep telling you that you are important, deserving, loving, intelligent, worthy, compassionate, beautiful, creative, inspiring, brave, true, strong, and able until you finally realize it for yourself.

Don't give up what you want most, for what you want now.

Clearly I've once again gotten behind in my welcomes. Even though I'm inspired by Mayk2queenie's new blog, I'll make an executive decision and start by welcoming back Ladycocoa and her lovely poodle Chloe from North Carolina. And since Lorielp (and her California walking poodles Marley ad Bentley) might've preceded my reign with the Poodle Club, thanks for posting now two months ago (gulp)

emoticon emoticon emoticon

Now, drum roll please,
emoticon
First a side announcement to all poodle lovers on the team, please join us on the team map (I think my dot might look like the District of Columbia though Arlington really is in Virginia.) For sure!

[Another drum roll]

emoticon emoticon emoticon Welcome to Mayk2Queenie and her lovely apricot toy poodle Coco Chanel from Illinois, and to Bellybattler from New Jersey and her lovely apricot standard Dunkin, and to Starscatter from Ohio and her lovely black poodle, and to Ladytalullah and her lovely apricot poodle wrangler(s?)(neat to know that moyen refers to the poodles in between miniature and full standard!), and to Poodlemom9188 and her lovely apricot/cream poodle. Tara just barked so I'll note she's just raring to chat with all your pups on the poodle talk thread.

And welcome to poodlelovers Pulimom from Arizona, and Audreyd37 from California, and Lisa0305 and redrose1961 from Pennsylvania, and smileandnod0829 from Kentucky. Being owned by a poodle or doodle is not required for membership here, but please feel free to post pix of your favorites.

Last but not least, welcome to poodlelovers Treeflower, Squishymom3000, poodledad and Marqster, though we don't know much about you, except that we all love poodles and doodles!

emoticon emoticon emoticon

OK, so I've gotten behind on my welcomes again. I did post belated welcomes to Paperclipsue and Colman, and IH8W82 and Oliver and Janey, and a belated welcome back to to Debbev, Gerry, KellyAnn and Victoria despite BooBoo's and Mighty Joe's and Rusty and Louis all crossing the Rainbow Bridge--all on other threads.

Fortunately, the poodles keep on coming. Tara's been chatting a little with a rescuepup who now seems to be called Lilly Loo. Clearly, I still haven't been following the boards closely enough, but I wanted to wish a emoticon to SemanticSiren and her pups Gus and Gracie, and to Djohn55524, Funnicello and Gardenmoon12, who haven't yet set up their profile pictures and webpages. If you have pups, Tara extends a warm welcome to them on the poodle talk thread. Again, emoticon

Oops, I've been behind on my welcomes again.... I have a huge email backlog and didn't notice the notices, nor do I get them for members who've left (though we always hope their poodles and/or doodles are OK):-( But today I noticed we have several new members, without pictures, darn it. I have my sparkpage set to private so I understand with our new members who do the same. But I love to see poodle pictures, so, come on and


emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Welcome, Lisa0305 and your two standard poodles! Tara told me to make sure to tell them about the poodletalk thread, where poodles and doodles of all sizes (and Aunt Deb whose BooBoo crossed the Rainbow Bridge) can chat about really important stuff, like human training tips.

Welcome Enneirda and your poodle (and doodle too?)! Love the picture of your pups playing! Poodles do have great energy. Maybe your pups can convince Tara about vegetarianism. She really does love her bones, meat and poultry of all kinds, but will also accept marinara and cheese....

Welcome Lauren (smileandnod0829) and Poodledad and Marqster ! Yup, the team is for poodlelovers, not just poodleowners, but if you're owned by a poodle or doodle, Tara would love to hear from him or her too!

Keep on emoticon !

Jane and Tara.

Hi,

Thanks for the welcome. I am new to sparkpeople. I found out about it through flickr as well. I have a one year old spoo named Jasper. My sparkpage is set to private, apparently and I can't figure out how to change it :S Trying to figure it out now. My name is Christina and I live in Vancouver.

emoticon Tina (The_Fae) and her young standard faerypoodle Temperance. And welcome A6A14173. Sorry I can't pronounce your name, nor know if you have a poodle or doodle or just like them, because like me your sparkpage is set to private. Cleaning mine up and getting it online has been on my todo list for a while, but I haven't gotten around to it. Meanwhile, my lovely doodlepup, Tara, has been chatting away on these threads. She's a little miffed today because I've been doing spring cleaning, which she doesn't enjoy. She wants me to shut up and let her on the poodle talk thread, where she can speak her mind, but also told me to make sure to invite your Temperance to chat. If she wants to speak for her non-poodle brothers and sisters that's OK too. Tara's wondering if she's a Bones fan, since that TV show is set in North Carolina where Tina and Temperance live. Seems we've gotten a few North Carolinians recently, which is just fine. I'm sure Chloe and her human (who both live in North Carolina too) will be checking in one of these days on the poodletalk thread. In any event, emoticon

Welcome Tina! We are so glad you are here. There is a discussion by the Poodles on the thread called What is your Poodle wanting to share? They have quite a lot to share too!

Nice to meet you. I have a teacup Poodle named April. She is just a joy to my heart and we are constantly together except when I am at work. She is my velcro pup, she has usually velcroed herself to my left arm! LOL

emoticon Welcome KellyMarie003 and her toy poodle and emoticon to Beccaboo and her poodlepup or doodlepup! Tara thinks that he or she looks like a bichon-poodle mix. She knows because she's met some very nice bichon-poodle doodlepups. She's told me to invite both pups to chat on the pup thread here. And last but not least, emoticon poodlelover Ann (Adoloreswr57). If you have a poodle or doodle, we'd love to see his or her picture too.

Anyhow--all poodle-loving humans are of course welcome too--on the other threads. Some of us walk or otherwise exercise with our pups, some dance or lift or do yoga under poodle supervision, and I even exercise in water (to my doodlepup's horror, were she allowed near a pool!). We can talk about our poodles, finding our motivation, supporting each other--you name it. Let's spark each other!

Again,

Jane and Tara. emoticon

Welcome to the Poodle club! There are two beautiful Golden Doodles that live down the street from me. Just huge lap puppies is what they are. They are gorgeous just like yours too. I think it's the boy Poodles and Doodles that seem to be more barky at the wild life in the yard. My little teacup Poodle does chase the squirrels and then gets so mad when they only go about a foot and a half up the tree and wiggle their tails at her! LOL

So glad you joined us here! come and let your Doodles "talk" to us on the thread: What does your Poodle want to share? It's very fun!

Hi - I am the proud "mom" to two golden doodle brothers - so I hope we can join this team. My boys are crossed with standard poodles and they have a lot of poodle traits. If someone figures out the barking at everything that Edith is experencing - I would love to know the answer too. Casey and Rowdie bark at every bird and squirrel that comes in the yard and we have tried the sound machine too - we didn't donate it, they pulled it off the fence and destroyed it -- so maybe it was working. :)

Hi, Edith. A couple of weeks ago, I listened to an audiobook from our local library (through overdrive.com). It's called, Through a Dog's Eyes, by Jennifer Arnold. While most of the book isn't applicable to most of our situations (detailing how the author got involved in training service dogs, as well as her experiences with several labs--and a labradoodle named Buck after her favorite died), the appendices (and maybe last chapter--definitely the last mp3 segment) seemed another story. I wished I could take notes in the car. I'm sure that both pulling and barking were among the problem behaviors explained and addressed, because we have a labradoodle down the block who, with her older golden sister, really goes beyond the bark chain concept whenever a dog passes the house, i.e. when I'm walking Tara down the block. I (and a lot of others) fear she'll break the front window someday, since her elderly sister has the sense to bark without pawing the glass.

The author's definitely of the dog-whisperer, not dominance school. I remember she explained how dogs (with their superior senses as well as pack mentality) are trying to alert their humans to a potential threat by barking. I think her training involved acknowledging the bark, then telling the dog to go into a silent mode. What I liked about the book was that she knows dogs are bright (we all know that about poodles, of course), and not all are food-oriented. Your training them to acknowledge the kennel command sounds like something she does too, though I don't think talking to them separately will work (or fits with the theory, hence the suggested reference).

Also, I'm not sure of the name, but once I found a collar (at a fleamarket) that used the dog's weight against it when he/she pulled. The leash attached in front, not in back, and it definitely was neither a choke collar nor a nose harness. I gave it to a neighbor who had a young golden (and problems counteracting the strong pulls). She told me it worked really well. Unfortunately, I don't remember the name, though I think it was originally from a petco or petsmart.

Edith there is a device called a gentle leader halter/collar that works wonders on the pulling aspects of their walks. that really might stop the excited barking when they can't pull. you can find them at petco or petsmart.

Thanks, Mary, the ASPCA article looked helpful.
They did okay not barking at passing dogs when in secluded rural training area near former kennel, but in their own territory that is another matter. I think the boredom/frustration barking may be the key most of the time, as they get hyper and encourage each other when they spot birds, cats, squirrels in their back yard, and they can see thru the windows from the kitchen or dining room, so run back and forth barking madly, jockeying for position, with me reminding them to get down when they are jumping up on the door or window sill as opposed to just watching out the window. They've done okay meeting and greeting in training classes, but on the street, when they are the two of them, it is more often a barking and pulling situation before I can even get them to hear me. I am wondering if the only solution is separate walks.... the constant feeding of soft treats didn't work too well in training classes because they are neither super food -oriented, and neither is interested in distracting play... no fetch or kongs interest them as far as I've tried and tried. They do like ear rubs and petting, cuddling, and walks. ... and running with each other when I can take them to the dog park. But that is not feasible in the winter weather or lots of muddy times as the snow melts... so I'm thinking I may have to get a professional training to help intercede. But I'm going to reread that aspca article (printed it out) and am going to try to have a TALK with them together, and then to work with them separately. trying the "quiet" command might work, If i can get them to understand what is wanted. they have learned kennel time, and will go there when asked as long as it is not right in the middle of a barking frenzy, where I have to go get their collars and turn them in the right direction.

Welcome Edith! It sounds like you have your hands full. Here is a link from Dogster, which I might add is free to join and they will even let you set up a page for your Poodles, but they are a wealth of information. Here is a link from them about barking

www.dogster.com/dog-training/stop-do

barking


Also there is expert advice from the ASPCA. it is also free although they do need money and will ask for it. At any rate here is a link for them too on the barking problem:

So glad you have joined! Spark is a great place to lose weight, get encouragement and have fun too.

I'm Ponytrot (Edith), recently moved to Maplewood NJ. Both Joey, my 7 1/2 yr. old black standard poodle, and Lily, my soon-to-be 2 yr. old black standard are both from different shelters - one in Newcastle, Pa.,and one just south of Pittsburgh. Lily is purebred; Joey looks to be, but can't tell for sure, since he sheds some. Neither of them will play fetch-- not even a tad interested, which surprises me since our earlier standard that we had since a baby till she died at age 12 of a brain tumor loved fetch a lot.
Lily and Joey are smart, but somehow they've outsmarted me when it comes to trying to stop their barking at anything moving outside that they see thru the windows or other dogs and trucks/buses when we go for walks. I think having two of them makes it worse, since whoever starts the barking, the other has to join in. We bought one of those machines that is supposed to put out a high pitched noise to stop/ deter the barking, and donated it to Goodwill before we moved, as it didn't phase Joey in the least. Any suggestions on how to discourage barking will be greatly appreciated. A water gun squirt startles them and makes them stop ... for a minute, but only when they see or feel it, not if I'm upstairs and they are downstairs, or if I don't carry it when we are out for a walk. Neither is particularly food motivated, which doesn't help when it comes to try to train them by distracting them, since they would rather focus on cats, squirrels, and birds outside, not me.
Apart from that, and the fact that Joey likes to run like the wind whenever he spies an open door/opportunity, they are both sweet and affectionate. They like people, although Lily was from a puppy mill type breeder before ending up at the shelter with 1 brother and sister at age 7 months, so she has taken a long time to get over being afraid of people. But when Joey goes to meet someone and shake hands, she'll try to get in on the attention, too.

Hi all,

Thank you for the warm welcome! I have decided on a name for my apricot baby...Little Lucy Maude. Lucy Maude Montgomery wrote the Anne of Green Gables series of books that are based in Prince Edward Island, where she grew up. The main character, Anne, is a head strong young girl with red hair. Since my new baby is also coming from PEI, I thought it suited her.

I recenly lost my 14 yo terrypoo girl. Her name was Shadow Bad...and it suited her. She was black with a poodle body and wavy hair. She weighed about 8 lbs and had lost her hearing and most of her sight. She was the boss of the house.

I also have a 70 lb terry poo lab mix. He is very cute with a poodle face and legs and a labrador body...He looks a bit like a labradoodle but his hair grows in and makes him look more sheepdoggy. He is a big suck and would be a lap dog if allowed.

I am driving to PEI tomorrow to get my new sweet baby...I can hardly wait!

Glad to find you guys on here and hope I can achieve my weight loss goals with lots of support and apparently, nagging emails from Spark :)

emoticon Poodlelovers even when we don't know your pups yet. Tara's so looking forward to meeting Tdoucette8's new pup on the poodle chat thread, 'cuz she knows we were all pups once. She also knows about poodles who have crossed the Rainbow Bridge, because her human sometimes mentions Cleo, who was her poodlebuddy Elvis' mamapoodle. In any event, Tara says you gotta ask the pup too about her name. Tara didn't like her shelter name, Daisy, and she's not gonna tell her other names from that awful place. Just mentioning that a pup who doesn't like his or her name just might not listen so well.... Tara's ears did nothing with a whole lot of names, then perked right up when she heard her name-of-the-heart. Not saying that Leanne's place is yucky or not-to-be-respected or that book humans are bad (Tara says she's named after a Buddhist goddess not a house), just that Tara likes poodle whispering as well as chatting and zooming and a little joke or two (at the expense of her human every once and a while;). Of course, she's the Poodle in Charge of her house.

As the official human co-leader of this thread, I've got to mention that poodle ownership (leaving aside the question of who owns whom) isn't required here. We welcome even people who just love poodles and doodles. But if you have poodles, Missilene and GemCatholic61, we'd love to see their pictures as well as meet them and you on the various threads here. Not so subtle hint. Hint. In all events, emoticon

Oops, too that I've forgotten to welcome a passel of poodlelovers who joined in the autumn, including, Pennylewis and her poodles Bridgette and Abby, and Nikkisez and her poodle Branch Rickey, and Dragnalong and her black water-loving toy poodle (NU=name unknown) and KMSRTX and Rascal, and Yaseruyo and her three pups (NU). And summer pack-pals Lorielp and her maltipoos Marley and Bentley, Bluewitch73 and her standard Sawyer, Lemonsmiles and her standards Louis and MarieAntoinette (Netty), and Cew1111 and her chocolate standard Pi (Pi Puppis of Argo's a real mouthful!) and Jeffreygoss1 and his beautiful (handsome?) white soonerpoodle (NU). Last but not least, welcome Jaxcaroline and BDHauge. I hope you will all forgive my tardiness.

Sniff, a few others left without me welcoming them:(. Some may even have de-Sparked, but I hope they just changed handles (and not poodles)! In any event, I also apologize that of you all, I only specifically welcomed KMSRTX and Rascal, and Lorielp and Marley and Bently, and Bluewitch73 and Sawyer, and each on another thread. I know poodles and doodles forgive. Freely. So I beg it of the humans to. And all of you, please feel free to post. Hint. Hint. emoticon emoticon emoticon

Hello all you wonderful loving poodle people :) I am so happy that I have found you! This is my first week on sparkpeople and I have joined animal lovers and a few other groups and was asking around about standard poodles. Then it caught my eye that someone had a specific breed as a team so I put poodle into the team search and here you are! woohoo woohoo.

OK so who am I? well I am an animal, nature nut who wants to get healthy. I have been fighting with my weight, allergies, asthma, headaches... since I was a child. I am ready to take back my life and not let food control me.

I have a 3 year old apricot standard poodle named Jabulani. I got him to train as a service dog for myself but he is nervous so it hasn't worked out. He is my first dog.

I am a pet sitter as well so I have lots of furry friends :) Looking forward to chatting with you all :)

Welcome welcome! this is a great team and yep, we are all spoiled and will probably never be able to have anything but a Poodle. In fact, there are those that have had lots of Poodles in their lives!

I have my first one, Little Miss April, and she is the love of my life.

Please check out the thread, what is your Poodle wanting to share and you will see just how smart these furbabies are!!!

Hello! I am new to this forum although I have been on Sparkpeople for a few weeks now. I am currently trying to lose the weight I gained from some health problems that I have.

I have two standard poodles a black female named Ellie (my babydog) and an apricot male named Shy (my lovebug). I have to say that my poodles definitely have the run of the house! They are by far the most loving and amazing dogs that I have ever had. They have totally ruined me for owning any other type of dog!

Welcome LittleoneJade! Wanting a Poodle absolutely makes you part of us! there are a few standards around and they are just as great as all the other Poodles are! Especially Cole (member name coleismysoul) and Stella, who belongs to Pudlecrazy. Also, now that I think about it, there is Tess, owned by 1frustratedcook. Actually, I am sure they would all agree, we are owned by our Poodles!!!!

I have a teacup Poodle named April who is the love of my life!

hi i am new, i have 3 chihuahua and one shep cross.
WHAT I WANT, LOL is a standard poodle
don't get me wrong i live my fur kids
but really miss having a poodle. i have been blessed with toy and med in my life time. but lately (the last couple years) the desire is for a standard.
any one own one? care to share your experience with them versus a toy or med?

Getting discouraged?
Lift something equal to the weight you've lost and carry it around for awhile

Once choice at a time per day
will make your new life style become reality !

Welcome Chanel & Nico,

I know that you will really enjoy the poodle ( & doodle club )please join us on What is Your Poodle Wanting to Share. That's a mouthful, so we just call it poodle chat. All of our poodles(& poodle mixes) talk about their adventures, likes & dislikes. Our "babies" support, pray for, & send healing energy to each other & the human families involved. In my opinion the poodle club is the best club on Sp.BooBoo thinks so to!!!!

Hi! I'm Chanel and I'm new to the group. I have a miniature poodle mix named Nico that I rescued last year. He is the love of my life as well as my fiance's. We adore him! He also helps us exercise because he loves going for walks and loves running around with us at the dog beach.

OK, so now the belated welcomes. Is a groveling wag in order? At least Tara said hi to a couple of these poodles a while ago on other threads....

emoticon to HEALTHYDIANAMB and her handsome little guy, Mr. Curly. It takes a poodle to keep track not only of adult humans but also children, a Chewennie girlfriend, border collies, a sheepdog and chickens! Wow! And I think he and she are the HEALTHYCURLY that appeared and disappeared from the team a couple of days before. We know who's in charge. emoticon

emoticon to Kohl and his human, MHNGJR, which I'm not going to try to pronounce, thank you very much.

Neither last nor least, since they're also spoos, emoticon to our Canadian poodlebuddies, Mandy and Casey and their human, JJCJ_98!

And I've got to apologize to the lovely Coco, who adopted ABSOLUTELEE, not the human's relative. Took a cup of coffee to realize that the handsome Boris is Coco's uncle. So Tara welcomes her as well as Kurz and Mandy and Casey to chat on the poodletalk thread too. And wants everyone to note that she doesn't just pay attention to the boy poodles--though she met another nice one yesterday, when her human got lost trying to find Chloe the white standard poodle. So emoticon emoticon emoticon

Jane and Tara.

Oops, it's been ages since I've welcomed new members. I might have to do this in parts while I excavate my inbox! That said, I'll get down to business.
emoticon to DTCELLO and her handsome standard poodle Kurz and his faithful Beatrice the mini-Schnauzer.

emoticon to handsome Boris, another standard poodle (do i detect a pattern?) and his human ABSOLUTELEE and canine pals Charlie the spaniel and Coco. Coco has her own human, so maybe Boris can teach her to bring (him? her?) to join us.

Tara is wagging her tail and welcoming Boris and Kurz and inviting them to come chat with her and the other poodles on their own thread. Sorry, Beatrice and Charlie, though we'll play nicely with you.....

And emoticon to LITTLERUBY1 and THERESASE11 even if I don't know their poodles' names because they have private sparkpages like me. Note to self: can we have semi-private sparkpages?

Anyway, welcome all!

Today's my day for belated welcomes. They're in pairs, like last night's ice dancing, but no medals, only cheers.

emoticon To Deja Vu and her humans Linda6105 (since I'm not sure if I welcomed you both earlier) and Bob6234. Deja Vu's an apricot snow poodle from Ohio--I'm not sure if I want any more of the white stuff, which is melting nicely here thank you very much.

And blazing a poodle trail from even further west (Oregon it is) emoticon to handsome and spirited standards Parker and Emma and their black sibling whose name escapes me at the moment. Their human lovebirds are Roobybegonia (who has so kindly introduced herself) and R. Is there another human in their lives too? Roobybegonia's picture has changed so much since she started, or is it R's that's changed? Please tell me that they didn't split for the Chinese new year! OK, I won't hold my breath (and Tara's smart enough not to try), just sigh and again offer a belated (but sincere) emoticon . And Tara told me to welcome all the poodles to chat on their own thread, which has been too quiet lately. Where's the emoticon

Oops, I nearly forgot Arlenef999, Allitodd and Cowgirl4124! Seems I've let my mailbox get out of control (or under some snow--gotta shovel before the next one). Anyway, since Arlene and I still only have private sparkpages, I don't know about her favorite poodle[s]. Or any of your poodles' names. Tara told me that I've gotta learn how to make at least her picture visible to everyone, like Cowgirl4124 has with her pooch. Not to be rude to the Queen of Hearts, but manyana (I don't know how to do other alphabets either). But I hope your all feel free to share your spark with this team. Tara also extends a welcome wag to all your poodles and doodles, noting the canines have their own thread devoted to important poodle business such as zooming, wet fur avoidance and training humans to deliver treats and massages.

More welcomes. Now I know Penny has claimed Poodleluv1 and Tina has dibs on Lrrsndrs. Tara adopted me nearly a year ago now. And we've three more poodles and two new humans on the sparkteam. emoticon Bunnyspal and your minis Jorja Mae and Sophie. And to Hockeycrew and her cream (but definitely not creampuff) poodle. Tara and her poodle and doodle pals chat on their own thread about important canine matters, while us humans spark on. All are invited to share, laugh and bark. So again, emoticon emoticon

Welcome to two new members and their black standard poodles! So Cole and Sarah aren't alone! emoticon Pudlecrazy and lovely Stella. And welcome Laraluch and your poodle too, even though I don't know his/her name yet! emoticon All poodles are welcome to chat on their own thread, which, frankly has been a little quiet lately as the little pups have been all snug in their beds and the spoos (maybe except Sarah) playing in the snow. Again, emoticon

The poodles are proliferating! Welcome to poodlelover Bonnie2010 and her lovely poodles, whose names I don't yet know. They can also introduce themselves on the poodle thread. Welcome also to poodlelover Buttercup and her poodle Kellie. Welcome too to Avalin(Xsquee_Neglectx) and her poodles Wiggles and Coco. I'd welcome her chihuahua and ferrets too, but I don't know their names and of course I trust they qualify for loving their poodle pals. Last but not least, JD has joined the Texas Trio. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Jane.

Welcome DEIRDREJ1TX and her lovely poodle Sophie! Seems like she's already found the poodle chat thread, so she's starting off with a bark! Glad you both can join us and sorry about the delayed welcome--seems I didn't receive Sparkmail for a couple of days but the problem's corrected.

Jane and Tara.

OK, I've been busy raking leaves and brushing my doodlepup and haven't been mentioned our new members. To Sheboyan, Deboyim and Shellzoo, emoticon emoticon emoticon We'd love to meet you and your poodles too. They can chat on their own thread here even if their humans (like me) don't have a public Sparkpage.

Also, feel free to add your location to our map, so maybe we'll someday look like a wireless coverage map. Or has breaking the 100-member mark simply gone to my head?

Anyway, I'm using my awesome powers to keep this on top of the introduce Yourselves section, so feel free to post there too. Soon we'll see how many people scroll down the page....
