Arrival Story: Toto came to me at 10 months old from his breeder. He is my second poodle.
Bio: Toto is a certified therapy dog, and also works with special needs people. He is soft, and sweet, and understands everyone's moods. He is also a brat, and just tonight, stole my hot dog right out of the bun when I wasn't looking!
Yup, this time I saw the email from HQ... I was picked AGAIN for a Diary pick. It is LESS than one week since my last pick!! Thank you ALL for not mentioning it, I am already too embarrassed!
Well, Sunday we went off for a LONG kayaking trip. Too bad Mom didn't study her radar map a little better...she might have noticed those storms were moving MUCH faster than normal and were on a collision course with our little kayaking pond!!
The good news...either they FINALLY fixed the dam from when it was damaged in Hurricane Irene YEARS ago, OR all that extra rain we've been having really filled up the pond because for the first time since the hurricane the pond was filled to its pre-Irene levels. That is FOUR FEET deeper than it's been since then.
Too bad cuz Mom wanted to take some photos of the pretty blue flag flowers that grow up there at this time of year. Well, when the water came up, it flooded the plants and she only saw ONE single, tiny, almost gone by blue flower!
Me, I saw LOTS of water, BOL! Julia decided since Barney loves to ride on the top of the cowl maybe I should try it. Okay, I am game! So, there I was, sitting up there, viewing the world, when suddenly Julia decides to make a 180 degree turn... SPLASH, the Toto was swimming!
Of course, Julia didn't want to get wet so she MADE me get back up there instead of inside the warm, DRY kayak. By now that wind was really blowing and ice, cold rain was adding insult to injury! To further my misery, she dumped me TWICE more before we got back to shore.
Then, because I was still soaking wet, she decided I needed to ride home in the crate. Of course that meant NO ICE CREAM when they stopped at the ice cream place. Mom didn't tell her that I don't even LIKE ice cream, hehehe!
Mom said I got another Diary pick today. She wasn't sure she was even gonna tell me about it, but decided some more jealous member of my family would tell me if she didn't, and they might not be nice about it.
Yup, I am getting really embarrassed... I have been picked way too many times in the last few weeks and I am sure that picking machine is stuck tight on ME!
Please don't send me any more gifts, etc., for my picks. I am gonna try to pretend they picked some other black mini poodle named "Toto" who also has a HUGE family!!!
Congratulations other black mini poodle named Toto on your diary pick...good job!!!
Hey, me and Skye are going camping in a few weeks. We're going to MY favorite campground, the place with all the ponds. Mom even asked Julia to go along, too. Hopefully, my girls won't get into a fight about who gets to sleep with me or take me in their kayak. Come to think of it, I usually sleep with Mom so they don't get jealous, and Julia doesn't like me in her kayak...she rather have Barney or Ali, so it should be fine! Besides, if they are gonna be fishing, I will need to stay with Mom so as to not get caught on their hooks!!!!
I suggested Mom start getting the camping stuff together but she reminded me it is already all packed up in the Summer kitchen in our nice, new storage boxes. Cool!
Mom and Skye were making up a menu... Mom included Chickie. Being so nice, I offered to gather up the chickies to take with us, BOL!!!
