Arrival Story:
Merlot was my first Standard Poodle. He's been a total joy and my once in a lifetime soul mate.

Merlot is happy to tell you that he was a certified wilderness SAR dog for several years. He had to retired due to an illness but he was very proud of himself for achieving such a lofty goal. He also has obedience and agility titles as well as his CGC title. He's done it all and thinks life is pretty darn good.

I love my Humans very very much, but sometimes it's hard to determine their goal or reasoning. Lets take Mommie as an example. I've been watching her go out every day my entire life and do some very unthinkable things. She goes out to our bathroom area and proceeds to 'collect' our leavings in a bag. In the past I attempted to find out what she was doing by going over to sniff the bag. For some reason she tells me to leave it and go away. LIKE I WANT THAT! I'm just tring to decide why she WANTS IT. It's gross beyond reason, yet there she is gathering the stuff like it is some sort of rare treat, hording over it like it's a priced bone!

I am now 7 years old and still have no idea what she is doing or why she is doing it, but I must say love her anyway inspite of her nasty habits.


Sleeping Late

Dear Diary,

There are few things in life as good as getting to sleep in. Since I was a pup, I have always enjoyed taking my time getting up in the morning. However, for some reason my mommie has been getting up at around 6:30 AM lately! It is really messing up my lifestyle. I wish she would stop this crazy behavior or at least not force ME out of bed when she gets up. I'm 7 years old and not a silly puppy. I know when I need to go pee and when I can sleep for another 4 hours! Sometimes I think humans are seriously messed up. Get me off my comfy memory foam Queen size bed simply to make me go outside and pee! It's humiliating to the extreme. /sigh

Merlot (who's going to sleeping on the couch since it's to much trouble to walk up the stairs to the bed at this point)
