Arrival Story:
Got him as an 8 wk old puppy from a relative.

Marino's parents were very small toy poodles (mom 8 lbs. daddy 4 lbs.). He had 6 other brothers and sisters and they were all very tiny little poodles and there was this Monster size puppy. That one was Marino. At 8 weeksk he was already 4 lbs. My husband picked him because he didn't hang around with his littermates and did his own thing in the kennel. He is the dominant one of in the house. He mostly plays with Woody and sometimes Zack but never Jillian and Heaven forbid the other dogs play with each other or even us in his presence. He barks and growls at them until they quit. That's where he gets his Napoleon name. Marino is named after Dan Marino of the Miami Dolphins. I wonder if he would be embarrassed to know that there was a poodle named after him?

Marino's Life

Long Time No Write

Hello Dogsters! It's been a very long time since I wrote here so there's a lot to catch up on.

First of all, and most important, I'm alive! About a year and a half ago I injured my back very badly and could not walk and could barely stand on my hind legs. Mommy and daddy took me to the doctor and they recommended a very expensive MRI but didn't hold much hope and suggested I be "put to sleep". Well, mom and dad got a second opinion. This vet explained what was going on and told them that if they were willing to continue carrying me everywhere and holding me up to handle my personal business and make me rest then, with the help of some special meds, I might recover. He also told them that even if my legs didn't work I was still healthy so why not get a wheel chair. Mom and dad said ok! Well, to make a long story short, I slowly recovered and don't need a wheel chair or "sleep". I can run and walk but am just a bit wobbly in the back end. Mom and Daddy keep me in most of the time so I don't get hurt by the other dogs and get after me for running to hard and falling down. I love that I have a Mommy and daddy that love me so much and wouldn't give up.

Since all this happened we've also made some changes to our lives. We moved far away from California to a place called Arkansas. It's very pretty here and we like it very much. We drove here with all my brother and sister dogs and cats and our horse. What a trip we had with three cars,a moving van and all 17 of us animas.

Before our big trip we adopted a new sister cat. Her name is Katy. She is mostly blind but she is a real whippersnapper and gets around very well. Since we got here we got another kitty. His name is Louie and he is a crazy one.

Guess I'll go for now. Sorry it's been so long. I'll try to keep things up better.


Another ONE!

Well, they've done it again. They brough home another brother. Oh well, at least this one is a poodle. The last three were DOGS! We've named this one Sebastian. He is a black standard poodle. He's almost as handsome as me but nobody will every catch me. I am also still king of the universe around here. My daddy sees to that. He lets me spend all day in the house with him and I get to sleep on the bed. HA! Take that you newcomer!


Love Daddy

Hello Dogsters. You all probably know how much our Mommy loves us because she is the one who mans the computer for us but our daddy loves us too.

Without a doubt, I am Daddy's favorite. He picked me out of the litter of puppies and brought me home without even asking Mom. He sleeps with me and brings me in to hang out with him all alone.

Daddy buys us special treats and even orders a steak by itself when he goes out to dinner just so we can have some too. Now that's love! He always tells mom it's just for me but she says I have to share. Hmph!

Anyway, just thought you'd like to know we have a daddy too.
