Talking The reason I've been a little absent..

Lookie what I got....





Meet Obie!! The newest (Semi permanent) addition! He is 8 weeks old. Standard poodle. He weighs 20 pounds already! Going to be huge!

He is a service dog in training which means I will have him for roughly a year and train him in basic obedience and socialize him and take him out in public.

He is the 6th dog I have raised! That makes me feel old. LOL

Oh my gosh! Obie looks adorable =) And he's a service dog too? That's a pretty amazing and noble thing to do . Is it difficult to train service dogs?

Yep. Joey went back in June actually. LOL

Tsuhei: It's not that difficult. It is just a little more work than raising a normal puppy.

He's adorable! I definitely couldn't do what you do... I'd want to keep them all! Are you going to stick with poodles?

LOL!!! Too late!

We went and the poor thing was pretty scared. I had to carry him through the whole store and my arms are still sore..

Codered: Yeah! Poodles are my thing. :) Plus I'm allergic to other dogs. So it seals the deal!
