Ahhhhh, poodle eyes! I agree that they are so intense and full of love. Our rescue that we had for a very short time was just such a gentle sould and although he was a standard, he had those same loving poodle eyes. We briefly had a german sheppherd, but she didn't have the same look as our poodles do! *hugs*

checking for the booger man! HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!! That little man BooBoo looks at April and me with very intense eyes, searching our faces it seems. And I think he still sees pretty good because he can throw a greenie up and chase it all over the room! He is so "show-offy" when his little girl pal April is around! LOL

Boo can look @ me with such intense love & wisdom. He is my baby, but also, my man. The man of the house, & he plays the part well. I can't go sit down, that he does not have to come jump up on the ledge of the tub, peep in, & check it out for boogers. As soon as he is satisfied, he marches back in the living room, & goes back to sleep. Bless his heart, he'll be 16 on Nov 3,'09 & he still looks out for Mommy!

YES 17 yrs is GREAT!! OOOPS! I was reflecting on my career span of over 35 yrs. In that respect I have groomed many. And it was the smaller toy poodles. The oldest standard poodle I have groomed was 18 yrs. old.

Mighty Joe still sees OK, but he doesn't really chase a ball anymore.

Poodles living beyond age TWENTY? WOW. I had no idea. Mighty's predecessor, Stevie the Wonder Dog lived to 17 years, 5 months. I thought THAT was long!

Peace, Love, and everything Groovy!

Hugs to Mighty Joe and all the aging precious poodles. My Angel does too, but I am so amazed as to what she does see. She used to spot and chase the rabbits but now she watches her younger sister and when she flushes one out in her view she will try as she might with her arthritis to chase once again. I have groomed many poodles in their 20's, the oldest was 24 or 168 in dog years!

I've always been amazed by the love shining in Mighty Joe's eyes. A little harder to detect nowadays, though, since he has cataracts!

It is so sweet to read all about the poodle stories and their eyes. My baby doll has angel eyes, but at times they are demanding eyes. The eyes tell me pretty please when she does the squinting routine. She is always interested in a special treat which only happens twice a day. She directs me to there location with those eyes. When I am watching TV she makes sure she gets up in my face for eye contact. The new kid on the block, Barbi is a big time hunter of rabbits (never catches just chases). We live in the country and she keeps a sharp eye out through the windows. It is fun to see her run like a gazelle. Later you can find her resting very comfortably in my recliner. They are standard poodles and they have their special beds in the office, living room, and at the end of our bed so they can keep a watchful eye on us at all times! Poodles are my very favorite breed. I am a retired dog groomer and I specialized in the Poodle scissor styles.

Every once in a great while I will see another dog (breed) that has the look Maggie has, but not often. I too think poodles have a special look all of their own. Wise little souls.

I hate to say it but I like sleeping alone too b/c hubby is on a CPAP machine and it is like sleeping with Darth Vader. lol I had to convince him to let Maggie sleep with us. Our other girls always slept in their 'houses'.

Phil is working night shift this week so it is just the Magster and me. AHHH It got cold last night so about 5:30 I was awakened by a soft touch on my shoulder and Maggie looking sleepily into my eyes. She was like, "I love you so much Mom. Can I get under the sheet please." So of course I lifted it up and she snuggled in against my chest. AAAAAAAHHHHHH what a way to start the day - loving eyes and a snuggle.

Yep, I adore my little buddy too!

Bright Blessings

I forgot to say, I wonder if other dog owners love the look of their dog's eyes like poodle eyes are so special and different from regular dogs eyes like German shepherds. I used to have a wolf hound when the kids were little and he had yellow eyes. chilling! but very very protective of us and the kids which is what I liked, since I was widowed and alone. and we had the use of a Golden Retriever who belongs to the kid across the street when he was in prison for a few years (lovely). I love her and I still get to see her but not like I love April. Maybe it's just because I really didn't own stella, but I do still get to see her and I still love her. But I am just enamored with my little poodle!

To be honest, when we first got April, I let my husband over rule me and put her in her little house at night and put that beside the bed. Then about two weeks after we got her, I got sick one night (I was still sleeping with him then) and I asked for my baby to be in my bed in the spare room while I was sick, which was about a week. Well, when I got well, I refused to put her in that house. I knew she needed me as much as I needed her, and after I got Matt trained, he is now ALMOST as crazy about her as I am. so even now that I sleep on the couch because of menopause not sleeping and extra weight caused snoring. she sleeps with him when he is home. other wise she is with me on the couch. My little baby. I think I was of an age that I either needed a baby or I needed a dog. and since my baby is 35 I sure am not having another one of those. I got cured of that craving thank God! HAHAHA!

But aren't they the best thing! Complete adoration and love totally and forever and they gone grow up. Wow! the best of two worlds and they don't wear diapers! hah!

emoticon Right On Mary! Yes, Ginger woke me up this morning as she usually does sitting and staring at me!I open my eyes and see those precious little poodly eyes staring at me! Then she pounces all over me!
She has always slept with us! She loves the bed! I had to train my husband in the beginning to let her sleep with us, He said no, I said yes! Now it is just as normal as brushing his teeth!
Her little couch is for daytime napping only.
She has another little bed in my sewing room too.
Yes, she has an adoration for me and I for her!
Those little eyes get me every time!
Have a great day with your baby!
Rosa & Ginger, too


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


I LOVE MY TWO GIRLS, BELLA & KATIE!

I suppose this is the only place I could post this that anyone would understand. Waking up to bright loving little poodle eyes has really made my life complete. Yes I am married. wouldn't it be great if we could find an mate that had the total adoration and bright little loving poodley eyes? LOL If I could find one that all I had to do was take them outside to poop and feed them for them to be totally happy and revolve their entire world and life around me, man I would be right there.

Matt gets the enjoyment of sleeping with her when he is in town because to be honest, since I gained weight, I snore so loud I can't sleep with him. (YEA!!! Make my day God! I like sleeping alone LOL)
