Arrival Story: We purchased Chelu from a local breeder. She was about 6 months old; the breeder had waited to see if she would be a candidate for breeding or showing. Chelu is a black poodle, but she has a few white spots. Also, she has a "difficult" personality; she is very protective of her home turf, but she doesn't do well in groups of dogs.
Bio: Chelu was my husband's dog (officially). Ascii was getting on, and after losing our cat, Lousy Rotten, we realized that we wanted a new puppy so we could train her and give Ascii a some company. After a few weeks, it turned out that she and Ascii had some dominance problems. We took Chelu to some obedience classes, and things got better. But she seemed unhappy; was sleeping a lot, and not as playful. We thought she might need some company. So we got Guy Noir, our black pug. That did the trick! She and Guy Noir are almost inseperable. His laid back, happy-go-lucky personality compliments her hyperenergetic style.
As Chelu has matured, we find that she is so very different than our pugs! She is very curious, and very, very smart. She loves to "hunt" and to play. She runs and runs and runs around the yard, making poor Guy Noir quite dizzy! She tries to be the alpha dog, but Guy doesn't quite get the concept; he has that pug personality...he'll let Chelu do her dominance thing for a little while, then he just stands up and walks away. Since he weighs thirty pounds to her 17, she can't stop him.
Chelu loves to sit on laps. After dinner, she often does the lap rounds, starting with Mom, moving to Grandma, and finally Dad (her favorite lap). She likes tease the cat, she jumps out and startles him while he's sleeping. Chelu gets very jealous when Guy Noir and the Buddy the Cat spend time together; she will often insist on a play-time with Guy to break up the cat fest.
