I am apricot/red toy poodle, Maggie (well actually a small small mini). I am classified a toy on all my papers. I am 2 years old also.
Anyway - a black poodle (& big one too) writing. WHOO HOO. On the other thread it is we little light ones for the most part who write. But I have to say poodles are pretty good writers.
My humans are getting ready for Thanksgiving too. Mommy is always telling me how thankful she is for me b/c I am a watchdog, I cuddle, I pick things up and bring them to her, I mind really well and she just loves having me in the family. So does Daddy.
I tell them everyday how much I am thnakful that I am here with them. They get puppy kisses first thing in the morning. I follow them wherever they go (in case they need me). I touch Mommy's leg to let here know I am there. I wag my tail to let them know how happy I am. I roll over so they can play with me and that makes them giggle.
So Happy Thanksgiving to all my poodle pals and all their humans. And to those who don't celebrate Thanksgiving officially this week, take a quick moment and say thanks too.

My positive affirmation, said many times during the day: I am happy, healthy, slender and prosperous.
So, have you been waiting for my Thanksgiving letter, yes, the letter from me, the black standard poodle Allegro, who happens to take up residence at Nancy and Greg's house?! I guess I will at least try to start it tonight since we finally had a more quiet weekend here. Actually, I was in a bit of heaven tonight when one of Nancy's guests let me rest my head on his lap as he gently caressed my head for a long time. For that, I am so thankful! Nancy says she only lets wonderful people visit this home for that reason, she knows her true friends will be nice to us and also, she learns so much about people by how they treat US. Whoa, that is probably something I should not write. (Hope you like us, or I won't ever meet you.) You see, all this time when Nancy keeps pampering us, she doesn't quite get it that we are most happy when we are just with the humans that love us. Why don't people do that....just spend quality time with each other, instead of always "doing" stuff and going places??? Yes, yes, I know quality time can be spent while going places and "doing" stuff, but you know what I mean.
You humans seem to need a day set aside to be thankful, and that is so not dog like! We (at least standard poodles) tend to try and show our gratitude toward our owners every day. We nudge them at the breakfast table to say Good Morning. We try to get you out for a walk to benefit you as much as us, and finally, we snuggle next to you anytime to show how much we love you. You will notice that we don't expect to be treated any different on your human holidays, we just like a routine of sorts.
Now, when I tell you this, don't think we expect birthday cards, but it is Louie and my birthdays this week too, Thanksgiving week, can you believe it, ages 2 and 12. Don't tell Louie, but I think I may give him the best gift possible, my stamp of approval of his existence in this household! He really has helped me stay in shape, both mentally and physically. Louie, on the other hand, will tell you that for his birthday, he just wants Nancy home all day, not to fuss over us, but just to be here.
So, for your human Thanksgiving week, why don't you make everyday a Thanksgiving Day. I know a day does not go by that I don't count my blessings. Now, I am off to rest, my paws are tired from writing.
