Hey, don't you mean Cat Box DOODY???
Yep, lots of that going on.
The weekends that Sandi is away usually turn into Poodle weekends. Gypsy and I walk more since there isn't much else to do. Today we met Oliver the pig on the walk. Oliver is huge!!!
Hey Oliver, step away from the buffet!!!
He is a happy pig I must say. His little tail is always going.
So, I'm going to get my chores done and embark on a poodle weekend with Gypsy.

It didn't take long for him to fit in. He learned early on that the dog bed is for cats too.
The other boys showed him how to take advantage of the sun spot in the morning. I have to admit he is a cute kitten with a great personality.

We were going out for coffee on this cloudy Sunday morning and Sandi remembered it was June 5th. Gypsy's Birthday!
She is 11 today and that is hard to believe.
Hey, never mention a girls age dude!!!
Sorry about that.
She still looks and acts like a puppy much of the time. She still has a big smile on her face. She gets very excited when she sees a bunny or any other little furry thing. (with the exception of cats) She continues to keep our air space free from big black birds. She still gets very excited when she sees us putting on walking shoes.
Hey, look who's talking!!!
True, no room to talk. She still loves to walk but our walks are getting shorter and slower. She is spending much more time in her bed either sleeping or just hanging out.

The town we are in is a very popular destination for the major cities on the east coast and in the nice weather we usually have many visitors from out of town. More often than not we'll meet people that are not that familiar with Standard Poodles and they are surprised when I tell them how athletic Gypsy is.
and showing signs of aging. Can't jump as high or run as fast. She even tires out more quickly on her walk. Even though she is slowing down, she enjoys every minute of play time.

Gypsy enjoyed playing with Prim but has reverted to being a single dog just fine.
At least I don't have to share Dino!!!

By the dinner time she was ready for a nap. She can't party like she used to.

What is normal for a cat???
That is true Gyp, nothing normal about most cats. Sandi set up a little hospital bed for Zoe while she was not feeling very well and the other cats felt like she needed some company. When one of the cats is not 100% the others can sense something is going on.

Sandi didn't sleep much for a few days. Zoe is her special cat.

I hate bunnies!!!
I know you do gal. And we have an abundance of the furry critters in our neighborhood. They are everywhere. You'd think that they would know not to come into our yard but, more often than not, first thing in the morning we have a few out there grazing without a care in the world.
Make my day bunny rabbit!!!
Gypsy goes after them with gusto, and the bunnies scatter. They have escape routes through the wood fence or under our deck. Gypsy then will sniff everywhere they've been. With all the rain we've had over the last few weeks, she has been getting a bad case of the brown nose.
She has never caught one but has come close a few times. At first I thought I'd try to get her to cease and desist this behavior but, I think she has so much fun doing it what the hell, let her have fun.

Gypsy really seems to like Prim. Gyp will coax Prim into attacking by dropping Dino. After several rounds of doggie wrestling, they settled down and relaxed with us up on the deck. They were exhausted.

She has noticed that Dino is Gypsy's favorite toy so, she is always trying to get Dino first.

I wasn't really sure what to expect of Charleston but went with an open mind. First thing, we had to find a dog friendly place to stay. We ended up at a Holiday Inn on the South side of town. A very industrial area with a beautiful view of the refinery. At least it was clean. I knew we were in trouble when we asked the guy behind the desk for a dinner recommendation and his response was, "we really don't have anything very good close by." Humm, that is customer focused. We did find a neat Bistro a few miles away on top of a mountain that was very cool.
the Boston area arrived to pick up their pup. Talk about a long drive! A very nice couple and we discussed poodles, beaches, Charleston, and had a beer while waiting. Imagine finding my favorite beer from Cleveland while staying in W. Va. Linda arrived with three poodle pups and another of her own dogs. She had a car full. After the initial introductions, the puppies played in the courtyard. Gypsy was very patient with them and had some good interaction with the pups. After a short visit Linda packed her dog and hubby up and headed back to St. Louis. The Boston couple packed up their pup and headed north. Sandi and I were left with Prim, Gypsy, and another puppy that we are dropping off in the DC area. That night, since we had two puppies and Gypsy we decided to pick up something to have in the room. We ended up with Beef Jerky and frozen shrimp. Not sure how that happened but it seemed like a good idea at the time,
Is that West Virginia surf and turf???
Those puppies smell and they kept touching me!!!

Speak for yourself!!!
Here she is getting checked out at the Vet. They grow so fast. I have a hard time remembering Gypsy when she was so tiny. Sandi is going to focus on Prim, taking her to work, walking, and generally being Prim's person. My focus is going to be on keeping my quirky old lady Gypsy happy. We will see how it works out.
