Just sharing a few stories about my quirky Standard Poodle and the joy she has brought me. I might throw in a story about the cats from time to time also!

It has been a while since I talked about Rim. He is the beautiful, sweet boy that we bought into our home thinking it would be a good thing for Gypsy. We did some research and visited many different breeders. We found a great breeder www.crossbrookpoodles.com and we had two beautiful poodles. You can go back and read all my posts about Rim back during this time but I just can not tell you what a great dog he was. Still is. We wanted a sweet, laid back dog that we could possibly turn into a therapy dog. Rim was all that and more. Gypsy on the other hand, didn't share our affection for Rim. She just did not like having another dog around to share her humans with. As Rim got older Gypsy's anxiety increased. Sandi and I had many conversations trying to figure out what to do. Gypsy was basically in a state of depression. Sandi discussed our predicament with her cousin in Chapel Hill. She had an older Standard Poodle and was more than willing to bring Rim into her family. So, Rim went to Chapel Hill where he became Ram. Ram has now completed all his therapy dog studies and is very active in the Chapel Hill community. Ram going to Chapel Hill, in my opinion, was a meant to be thing. Gypsy returned to her quirky self almost immediately upon Ram's departure.

The good news is that we have visitation rights and get to have a Ram fix from time to time.
