5/27/10: My 1st post!

Hi, everyone! I’m Rusty, a 3-yr.-old miniature poodle. I’m settling into my new forever-home. It’s been really fun so far because I’ve played with lots of dogs, and my new mom & dad love me. They even gave me my own blog so I can give you a poodle’s point-of-view. Cool! I have lots to say about my favorite things, poodle-peeves, my adventures, new friends – and pup culture!

So here’s what’s happening so far: My friend Elliott, the corgi, stayed with me for a month. We had a great time, but he did smell funny. My mom said something about a “skunk“.  I went to the beach where a nice lady gave me a biscuit just for being cute! Last weekend I met Penney, the Havanese/poodle, and Sherman, the pug. We’ll have more time to play this weekend – I’ll post pics later.   This morning, I had to potty in the rain, thunder & lightening.  My mom, Ruth, was nearby cheering me on, so I was brave.  When you gotta go, you gotta go!

Lots more to come: I got new toys, food, a new bed, homemade treats – and lots more I can’t wait to tell you about! Have a great weekend. My dad, Tim, says its going to be sunny & warm here. Woof! –Rusty

A note from Rusty’s “mom”: I introduced Rusty in my Mother’s Day post. We’re so happy to have him in our lives. (For you purists out there, we do realize that we aren’t his “parents”. So please suspend reality & enjoy his blog.) Folks always ask me what toys, food, & products I recommend and/or use for my pets. I’m hoping Rusty’s posts will give you more insight into your pup, as well as new ideas to improve life with your dog. Please contact me to help your new pup make a smooth transition into your home & family!

A side-note about Rusty’s friend, Elliott: He’s adorable, but he did get skunked. Check out our spring post for info on skunk season, including a link to a home-made solution you can wipe on your pup to get rid of the smell. (Hint: Skip the tomato juice!) –Ruth
