Oops! A belated emoticon to Paperclipsue and Colman, and IH8W82 and Oliver and Janey. Clearly, I haven't been following the boards closely enough, I'm grateful that other members have welcomed you to our little group. I know Colman's been on the poodle talk thread, and invite Oliver and Janey to share there too.

I really appreciated hearing about Janey bringing Oliver out of his shell, and empathize. One of the dogs next door howls at fire trucks too, and Cleo used to join in the bark chain with him and his yorkie brother. Now that Chloe bichon's at my house, I'm hearing a lot more barking, though I think Tara has a much better sense of proportion for the city/burb where we live and only occasionally joins in. Dad encouraged Chloe's barking for safety's sake (or amusement) in the rural enclave where he lives, but here dogs and people pass by on the sidewalk throughout the day. Climbing beans now temporarily obstruct the view from the window with the best access, but that reprieve will end when frost hits, and doesn't apply if I leave the front door (but not screen/storm open for additional sun and air while doing other chores (Chloe does seem to be learning to restrict barking when I'm in the room with her). The risk is that we now ignore the barking--yet once it turned out to be a repairman at the door!

Jane.

I hope you don't mind. I added all of you as sparkfriends.

Everywhere I go people remark that they have never seen an apricot poodle before. My vet says they are not as common. Yet, I see there are several here. Beautiful pups! I think all colors are beautiful. Mine was dark brown when he was born. I was told he would lighten up and he sure did!

The reason a dog has so many friends is that he wags his tail instead of his tongue.

Kathryn,
Welcome to you and your "babies"! I had to laugh at what you wrote. My Zoey is also a rescue. I was told she's a maltipoo, but many people think she's a bichon. All I know is that we rescued each other and couldn't be happier!

We're looking forward to chatting with you and your babies.

Your Poodly Doodlys are adorable and I know you are so attached to one another.

I have a little teacup Poodle named April who is the light of my life. She is very loving and sweet to everyone and never meets a stranger.

We are so glad you came to join us. Spark People is a great place!!!

HI - We (Oliver, Janey and I) are looking forward to getting to know all these wonderful people and pups on this board. I am Kathryn (known as Nana to many). I belong to two wonderful furkids. Oliver is a white, 20 pound, poodleXbichon(maybe X malti). When we rescued him, they told us he was a poodle, but personally I believe he has more bichon traits. No matter, they are both fantastic breeds. Oliver has stolen my heart, as well as everyone else's. Even my daughter likes him and she is not usually fond of dogs. We believe he is about 5 yo.

Janey is our newest furbaby. She is probably 4 or 5. She also was supposed to be a "poodle". Although she is back/brown/patches of white, her fur seems more malti than poodle. She has some little quirks, but she is the sweetest, funniest little piece of fluff. She is about 10 pounds. She has gained a lot since she arrived here. Poor puppy was in really bad shape. We took her to the vet and (although we had been told she was spayed - she wasn't) had her spayed. Also had couple hundred dollars worth of dental work done. Poor little Janey. She was lucky enough to land in a house who would really love her and care for her, BUT she had to go through a lot of painful stuff before she even go to know us.

We all have bonded. Oliver and Janey always got along well together, but not anything special. They now seem to know they are family. Oliver was a quiet dog. Never barked, played ball, or anything. He would however bark at the hawk that sat on our telephone line. He likes to howl when the fire engines or police have their sirens going, and hubby encourages this. Glad we don't live in a city. Janey is our barker. Now that she knows this is her forever home, she barks when anyone comes to the door, or drives into the drive. She has taught this to Oliver so now they both bark, and he has taught her to howl, so we have a concert when the fire trucks go by. Fire season is about half over and it seems this year hasn't been as bad a many in the past. A couple of years ago we were evacuated.

So, Hi everyone. I told Oliver and Janey about this board, and we are glad to be here. Thanks for the invite. emoticon

Welcome to our group Sue. Little Coleman is adorable! I have always had poodles. My first one was Sugar, a miniature apricot poodle. My second one was Strudel, a teacup apricot poodle. I now have a white toy maltipoo that's a rescue. Her name is Zoey. As little April's mommy says, Zoey has more poodle in her than maltese.

Hi Sue! Glad you joined us. Poodles are the smartest pups around! I saw a picture of your little Colman, what a cutie he is!

I enjoyed your posts so thought I would try this team. I have a mini-poodle that is full of charm, spunk, and mischief. His name is Colman. He is one year old and apricot in color.

We are in our 3rd doggie class. He is smart, but still puppy-ish. I have a lot of fun with him.
I have some Colman Adventures on My Spark Page if you are interested.

He is my first poodle. I hope to learn a lot, share a lot, and generally enjoy my new poodle-people friends.

The reason a dog has so many friends is that he wags his tail instead of his tongue.
