emoticon Lorri (LRRSNDRS--sure glad I don't have to pronounce it) and her lovely toy poodle Tina. emoticon We're glad to have you both in your group, and if Tina wants to mosey on over to the poodletalk thread, we'd like to hear her perspective on your neck of the woods (or fields, or lake). I vacationed near Bull Shoals as a child, but never with a poodle.

emoticon EJHeinrich and pups emoticon As Rosa mentioned on another thread, your standard might want to share canine issues on the poodle thread. We're not all southerners, though I'm across the river from the other Washington, I've spent time in Washington state (pre-poodle) and love it.

Yup, glad you're here, Juliadbf. And very glad that your lovely Kyira has found the poodletalk thread. Tara was happy to see your shih tzu, Oreo, too, since she's trying to get in touch with that side of her canine personality too. Actually, right now, she's being her own lappuppy, which I understand might come from that part of her heritage. Thanks to you both, she knows they're nicknamed 'tzus. That helped a bit with her embarrassment at calling Fido (pronounced FEEDO) down the block a shih tzu when he's actually a pekinese. But she learned that some think shih tzus are crosses between lhasas and pekes, and they can be quite forgiving. Anyway, she likes both your pups lots.

Nope, we haven't forgotten you Daisy5711! I can appreciate your not having a public sparkpage, since I don't either. That said, if you'd like to post a picture of your pup, we'd like to see him or her. Plus, the other pups sure would like to meet him/her too on their thread.

Jane and Tara. emoticon emoticon emoticon

Welcome Kim807 *& pup(s)! If you choose to post a picture or setup a sparkpage, we'd love to see your pups! Or hear from you! Or if they're poodles or doodles, they have their own thread to talk about poodlicious faves and peeves.

We're into triple digits! Welcome, Sasandra and Trista, Rastus55 and Angus and friends, and Lydia and Pearl. Glad you're all here.

To celebrate, however, I've thought of a healthy challenge for all footed- and pawed- members of the Poodle Club. DogAge.com says 15 minutes of daily movement keeps pups and peeps healthy. Here's the article (sans advertisements, though of course all this poodle power has gone to my head!)

Finding the Fit Dog Within

Keeping your dog active can add years to his or her life. No matter what breed or age, regular daily activities can help keep your dog lean, healthy, and young. In fact, regular exercise and active playtime can make your dog up to 6 months younger!

Man walking dog
Why Exercise?
Dogs need exercise as much as people do for optimal health. Ensuring that your dog gets enough exercise helps to keep your dog slim and healthy and helps to prevent unwanted behavior, which keeps your dog safe and happy.

A slim dog is a healthy dog. Balancing good nutrition with regular exercise helps reduce your pet's risk of obesity.

An active dog is a happy dog. An active dog is less likely to misbehave than a bored dog. Daily activities keep your dog happy and entertained, which helps keep him or her from nosing around in potentially dangerous items or situations. Exercise also allows your dog to release restless energy in a constructive, rather than destructive, manner, which can keep you happy, too.

How Much Is Enough?
Determining how many times per day your dog should get physical activity depends on your dog's breed, age, activity level, and general health. Some dogs require short walks through the neighborhood while others require more endurance-based activities, such as running and playing. Even senior dogs enjoy spending time outside after being indoors all day. A general goal is to make sure your dog exercises or plays actively at least 3 times per day for at least 15 minutes each time.

What Is the Best Type of Exercise?
When it comes to exercise, the important thing is to get your dog moving. Rotate activities to keep your dog interested in them. In addition to daily walks, integrate playing at the park, playing fetch, and swimming. Also, visit your local dog park to let your dog interact with other dogs, which can improve your dog's socialization skills.

Thanks, all. I'm now officially on the map! But we still have no one above the Mason-Dixon line. Hint. Hint. (for those who don't know Virginia, it is south of the Mason-Dixon line that separates Maryland and Pennsylvania. But many Virginians consider Arlingtonians such as myself (expl.) Yankees! And of course Tara's from south of the line too!

Has power gone to my head? As my third official act, I'd like to welcome all new members. I don't know how to check peoples' start dates, but Spark says we've gotten some new members since Memorial Day or so. Some have introduced themselves (or their poodles and doodles have introduced themselves) on our threads. So, Welcome (in no particular order):

Germanbear and Chancy
Rose251 and Scooter
Thatheathergirl and Baby Angel
Ft4vr and Ava and Brea
LadyCocoa and Chloe
Poodlelover2 and Charm.

A special mention to Mary1313, who I know has been brightening these pages under another identity (email address?) with her lovely poodle April.

For the rest of you relative newcomers, welcome too. We'd love to meet you and your poodles JLHoppock, Cincal1, Sunshine749, Mytime2spark and Booklover15211. Of course I've probably made a few capitalization errors and typos too, and who knows how many worthies I've omitted...

So a mental challenge for those who have been around here before. When doodling around today, I noticed that we have a team map. Well, I'm not on it, nor is anyone in our significant Pennsylvania contingent. So, hey, you southern and western belles--how did you add your location? Who knows, maybe someday our map will look like that tv commercial?
