Seriously, how am I supposed to write a blog when my paws have been so cold and dry from this Minnesota bitter cold winter? Now, just so you know, it isn’t my idea of dressing us like what you see pictured to the right below, and this may be the very reason that our standard poodle breed sometimes gets the wrong stereotype of being high-maintenance, right?!
Have you ever thought about it that it is just the owners who are high-maintenance, rather than, us!? We just simply like to hang out and be treated like many other dogs, meaning, treated like a dog instead of like a human. I am really sorry Nancy, but someone just needed to nudge you about his topic and here it is the very poodle that should be incredibly grateful, telling you to “chill out” how we appear when we go walking, etc. NO WAY, I even use those silly human slangs like “chill out” and not trying to make a pun of the weather either. To think that she was even concerned that our muttluks did not match our fleece coats 😉 It just goes to show what happens when a dog is treated like a human for so long – we begin to act and “heaven forbid” (another human cliche) become like a human?
If we would have been walking, it would have never allowed us to get that close. This week, I want all of you to LOOK for something remarkable in your world and report back to me what it is. Keep your eyes and hearts open – OK, now I am getting all mushy on you and my intention was to end on a light note.
