Oh I love when people tell me the great stories of the long living poodles!

Hope you had a great vacation!

Hi folks, back from vaycay. STILL need to upload some Mighty Joe pics. Answering Mary1313's comment regarding Mighty Joe's age (13 1/2)...my poodle prior to Mighty Joe, Stevie (the wonder dog) lived to the rip old age of 17 years, 5 months. And, he was quite lively until about 16 and a half.

Yes, poodles DO live long lives!!!

Peace, Love, and everything Groovy!

OK. I think I managed to add Cleo's picture as my profile photo. We'll see when this posts. This is Cleo in late spring, in her full fur coat. When I got her 3.5 years ago, the shelter gave her a "stupid poodle cut." Of course, she as a poodle isn't stupid--she knew having a bare butt in January wasn't comfy. So now she just gets sporting cuts, just long enough in the summer that her back freckles don't show. Definitely, the heating/ac duct under the coffeetable is a favorite place, both for the temperature regulation and keeping track of the front door and everything in the room.

Sorry, folks. I can't seem to get the uploading process working. Apparently, my computer can't connect to the remote server (sparkpeople I presume) although I can surf the site with no problem

Thanks for your comments! I'll dig up some more photos in the next few days. I'm actually vacationing in New Hampshire now...visiting my brother. We'll be looking at pics tonight...I have tons in my laptop and my external drive. So I'm sure I'll be stumbling upon more photos.

Mighty Joe (or Mitejoe or Joey) is about 21 pounds. He's a senior at age 13 1/2. I'm hoping to find a photo of him in his 'devil dog' Halloween costume from when he was about 5 years old.

Happy Tuesday!

Peace, Love, and everything Groovy!

Mighty Joe isn't the only poodle eager to get home. My Cleo often lags going out on my circle walks of local parks and leads going back (OK, the 13 lb fluffster has me trained).

When I adopted Cleo, she couldn't walk around the block (of course January, the shelter's lion cut and some neighbor's salted walks didn't help but her lack of muscle tone had me wondering whether she ever left her previous house or apt). Now she loves poodle adventures.

However, Cleo also hates getting her fur wet, so normally she hangs back from the door on drizzly days, and even tries to sleep in. So I was surprised last Monday and Tuesday that she was up and at the window at 6:30. Of course, a cold front had just come through. Then, a couple of days ago, Cleo really wanted to walk, despite a slight drizzle. I guess she didn't like being cooped up in the house all that day during my errands. Unfortunately, the heat and humidity's returning today, so Cleo's taken up her position in front of the AC vent!

Oh I would love to be there to see their antics! Anril is pretty laid back. She has toys but what she does is go in the kitchen where I keep here little house and fluff her blankie up with her nose, then take out what toys she wants and arranges them meticulously around in a semi circle in front of her and then lays in the house and stares at them while she slowly drifts off to sleep. She usually keeps one that she tucks under her head as a pillow. She does this while I am cooking.

I have been trying to talk DH into letting me get another one so she would have another one, but NO WAY he says. LOL

I'm in Lubbock and it's normally very DRY!!! My poodles are toys and tiny toys. Snickers is a tiny toy and she's a light brindle. Her coloring is very unique indeed. I've never seen a poodle quite like her and her character is matching. Buffy, the white one you're talking about is my crazy one. She has dumbo ears that stick out. She has more character (really!) than any person I've ever met! She keeps us in stiches and makes us laugh and laugh. She's in heat right now and finds new ways to remove her diaper. She hates that thing! We'll have her fixed soon as we have no intention of breeding her, just have not gotten around to doing it yet. Raider is my big toy and he'll just lick ya to death. Tonight I've had trouble with him just licking and licking. He won't stop!!! I guess he's got so much love in him he doesn't know what to do with it all! lol Buffy is running around right now and hiding the ball and Snickers is barking at my son trying to get the ball! They're so funny! We have so much fun with all three of them. They just enrich our lives so much!

Yeah, when I mention to California natives that I have 1/3 of an acre, they usually utter sounds like "wow"! We were driving up in LA one time, and there was a gold trimmed Lexus just sitting in the middle of the road. When we passed it, I saw a young gal in there with her head looking down into her lap. Poor little starlet.
I've seen lots of nasty accidents, upside down SUVs, fender benders, you name it. We were almost in one once...2 cars were spinning out in front of us (as a passenger, I missed seeing what happened before but they probably hit each other). My husband swerved, and we just missed hitting the bumper of one of the cars in the middle of the freeway. We were quite lucky!

Yes, my Mighty Joe is so happy to stay at the breeder. He is related in some way to all of the dogs there; one of the girls there has a face just like his...from his Dad! And she only charges $8 a day for boarding...such a deal!



Peace, Love, and everything Groovy!

Oh wow you are lucky to have that property! in california? man that place has property at a prime. I could not deal with those people on the freeway. frightening. especially when you don't know who is using drugs or drinking or who might be a little coo coo (hmmm this may resemble me on the coo coo part LOL).

I bet Mitey Joe loves going to the groomer and boarding! probably gets pampered!

I don't mind the noise and density of Orange County; I'm fortunate to have a home with 1/3 acre of land around it...pretty rare in these parts! Quiet neighborhood; lots of original owners from the 1960's still here!

The only thing I don't like are the freeways...so many cars...first going 80 miles an hour, then coming to a screeching halt rather suddenly. What's THAT all about?

So, I've been in SoCal for 7 years. It took 2 years to get used to my new surroundings. And Mighty Joe? No problem! He was born here in 1995, and he and his mom were shipped to NJ, where she was from. We bought him from the breeder there when he was a year old; he is a half inch too tall, so he wasn't going to make it as a show dog.

When I was moving to SoCal, I looked up the California breeder who owned Joey's dad; she lives 9 miles from here, and she grooms him and boards him when we go away! How lucky was that?

Peace, Love, and everything Groovy!

Oh you are so right about their tiny little tootsies. I always put my hand on whatever surface or either take my shoe off. If I can't stand it I know she can't. I am probably too over protective of the little cutie.

Joey might get spunky when the fall comes, or do you guys have fall?

I was raised in Whittier and mostly Las Vegas so I know about that 120 degree weather. I can't believe as kids we walked on that hot pavement. It would be so hot there that the pavement would actually be kind of soft. I think our feet were just used to it because kids are going to be barefoot.

I really was in a culture shock when I moved back to alabama. No sunday alcohol sales. No slots. closing up the streets. Weird.

But I eventually got used to it and now the area in Las Vegas is so crowded I am glad I don't live there anymore. I love the much quieter alabama area. and I love the look of the woods. No green in Vegas!

Yipes, you get humidity in Alabama as well as heat! Here in Orange Co, CA, it is a pleasant 82 mid-day with low humidity. I also spend a lot of time in the desert (an hour and a half east of here), and the high in the summer can range from about 104 to 115! It is BRUTAL there in July and August; the rest of the year it is wonderful.

My Mighty Joe is funny about walks nowadays. He has started to refuse to walk with me...OK, he is 13 1/2, but he has a LOT of spunk. When we get to the halfway point of our walk, and I turn around, he suddenly starts walking fast! Silly old guy.

Always be mindful of the little foot pads on their feet...I think the concrete can get VERY toasty!

Peace, Love, and everything Groovy!

I think I am already looking forward to Fall as I will get to start back walking with little April. Neither one of us are that heat tolerant right now. Although my problem is different than hers. I am just menopausal and hot dangit! she is, well, furry! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAH

But the summer has been great. I have actually gotten to go out on the boat this year. Last year it was over a hundred degrees here with no breeze here and I am not superhuman. Couldn't do that. Also, we had just gotten a new (new to us but used) boat and it required more work than we though it would.

How has ya'll's summer bean?
