Fun with friends!

Sunday, August 12th, 2012

Hey, I hope you’re lovin’ summer as much as I am.

I’ve been tearing it up with my pals, Bruno the Havanese & Elliott the corgi.  It’s a blast when I hang with my boys!

Good friends, good times, dawgs!  ~Rusty~


Beat-the-heat treats!

Wednesday, August 8th, 2012

Whew, it’s hot here!  Fortunately, my mom’s a creative cook.

She made these perfect summer snacks to please all of us guys, and she made them bone-shaped!  Even my pal Bruno, a super picky eater, chowed down on these tasty-icy morsels.

When us pooches get together, it’s always big fun.  (More on that in my next post!)
Dawgs, these snacks did not disappoint!  ~Rusty~

(Well worth the sit-stays!)

A fun twist on noms

Wednesday, August 17th, 2011

New noms for me!  Recently, “mom” switched me to a new, crunchy food. She says it will be easier for me to eat when she’s not here to make my meals.  Hey, I’m a foodie poodle, so I’m not picky.  The super cool part about my new food is that I get to eat meals out of a bunch of new toys!  Mom says that’s to slow me down a bit when I eat.  (I do tend to wolf it down – not gonna lie.)

I tried each of the toys Ruth gave me separately, but those were too easy for me to figure out.  (Scary smart, here.)  So she connected the 2 toys to make it harder.  (She’s even smarter, or so I let her think.)  My pal, Elliott the corgi, eats fast, too.  So his mom feeds him from 3 toys!  Watch – we’ll show you how it’s done, dawgs.  Bone appetit! ~Rusty~


Fido film fest

Monday, May 9th, 2011

Hey, I’m hanging with my corgi bro, Elliott. We’re watching videos with mom, and I picked two of my favorites to share with you.  I love the first flick because it reminds me of when my house smelled like BACON.  But my humans didn’t tease me about it.  They delivered alternative noms.  The second vid is just ridiculous.  No self-respecting poodle would do that.  (Remember when I showed you the game I taught my dad?)  So grab some popcorn & enjoy.  Two paws up!  ~Rusty~


A nice surprise

Saturday, April 9th, 2011

Last week was pretty ho-hum until my friend, Elliott the corgi, stopped by. He hung out with me while his mom traveled, and we had a blast.  (My “mom” took lots of pics, and I even smiled for a few.)  Restin’ up & lookin’ forward to Elliott’s next visit!  ~Rusty~

Rusty’s resolutions

Monday, January 3rd, 2011

Happy New Year! I resolve to play, be cozy & cuddle as much as possible – – and maybe smile more for “mom”‘s pictures.  Shouldn’t be a problem!  I shared my B-day toy with you;  I’ll show you what Santa brought me – later.  And, my corgi-pal, Elliott, is visiting again this week.  In the meantime, I’ve got the cozy down already.  Watch!  ~Rusty~


Holiday play – finally!

Saturday, December 11th, 2010

Thanksgiving week, my buddy, Elliott the corgi, visited. A little background on this situation:  We played really hard & had a blast for a month when I was newly adopted.  The next time he stayed over, I invited him to play (peeked around the corner & barked @ him), just like I had always done.  But that time, he came on way too strong, rushing face-on up to me.  What’s a poodle to do?  I gave him the cold shoulder to settle him down, and we agreed to peacefully coexist.  Really – I had to seriously calm that corgi down!  So the next few times he visited, we didn’t play.  But this time, “mom” whispered in my ear, “You’re taking him way too seriously.  Go Play!”  So I invited him to play again, calmed him down a bit, and game on!  Doggie Detente!!   (The best part:  Elliott’s “mom” told my “mom” that Elliott is now playing more with other dogs than he used to.  Woohoo!)  ~Rusty~


Fido Fatwa?

Friday, June 25th, 2010

Hi, everyone.  I’m sad today. I just heard that some people in Iran think that dogs are unclean, and they will fine humans found with dogs in their cars!  In my humble opinion, poodles are uber-clean!  And we all know how most dogs love car rides.  Very sad.  But the weekend is coming, the cheezeburger machine will soon be going again, and my buddy, Elliott, is visiting me.  Life’s lookin’ up!


5/30/10 poodle post

Wednesday, June 9th, 2010

Elliott, my pal the corgi, wrote to me, with a little help from his mom:

My mother washed me down twice with a special solution, but I am sorry the skunk smell lasted for quite awhile.  I smell good now.  There are a lot of skunks roaming my street so my Mom only takes me for a walk in the daytime.  I think I get into trouble when a skunk comes up to my fence and I go to visit.

I asked Elliott what his mom used to help him smell better; I’ll let you all know as soon as I know!  Elliott also said:

That thunder really scared me.  I was asleep on my Mom’s bed and I jumped right on top of her chest.  She held me tight but I still shook for a long time……  Have a good weekend.  Your buddy, Elliott

I hope  Elliott feels braver on July 4th!  If your pet gets scared of thunder, fireworks or other things, talk to my mom.  She can help!


5/27/10: My 1st post!

Wednesday, June 9th, 2010

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
