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~

Hey, no New Year’s resolutions required here, dawgs!  I’m stayin’ in shape through the holidays.

It’s easy ‘cuz it’s fun!  I eat healthy foodsnacks & chewies.  I go for walks on the beach and family adventures.  Sometimes mom puts my food in toys, so I have to eat slower & exercise while I eat – cool!  I play with friends whenever I can.  Fetch & catch are always awesome.  I even hopped on the treadmill to show you dawgs how I roll!  (There are treadmills for dogs.  Your humans can help you use one safely:  read here, here and here.)  It’s all good ‘cuz I get plenty of R&R and vet care, so I stay happy & healthy.  And my humans love meAwwww…..

Happy Howl-idays, hounds!  See ya’ next year!  ~Rusty~


Game on!

Tuesday, August 16th, 2011

Last month, my good pal, Bruno, hung out @ my house. I helped him not miss his mom too much for a couple weeks.  A little poodle play did the trick:  We tore it up!  Woof, yeah!  ~Rusty~


Good friends, good times!

Whew!  I’m resting up after a month of sleep-overs with my best friends, Bruno & Elliott. Bruno’s a blast to play with — more on that in my next post.  But he does have one freaky little habit:  He barks @ any animal on TV.  I’m not kidding, dawgs.   Everything from pigs to cats to cartoons.  Check his act out.  Weird, right?!  ~Rusty~


Spring – sort of

Saturday, March 19th, 2011

So it’s supposed to be spring. But the weather is dismal @ my house.  Until the sun shines again, I’m dreaming about playing in my pool.  (Remember when I had a pool party with my pal, Bruno?  Big fun!)  This video reminds me of good times!  ~Rusty~


Poodle pool party!

Sunday, July 18th, 2010

A pool or a pond?  A pool will do for me! I got a new pool, and Bruno’s visiting.  Woohoo! Did you know poodles are water retrievers?  (No, Paris, we’re not silly fashion accessories!)  Fun fact:  “Poodle” comes from the German word “Pudel” which means “plays in water”!  Anyway, we learned to play in the pool this weekend.  We were nervous @ 1st, but “mom” & “dad” safely eased us into it.  First we got in with no water & a bathmat on the pool bottom so we didn’t slip.  Then we hopped in & out of it for chicken treats.  (Yummy!)  When we were having fun, “dad” slowly added water while we munched on chicken in the pool.  He put about 2 inches of water in it.  Then “mom” floated some of my favorite balls in the pool, and I jumped in & out to get those.  (A blast plus a great way to cool off!)  They added a ramp to the end of the pool for another way to jump or look into it.  Bruno mostly watched me hop in & out from the ramp, after he took a dip in it by himself.  Then Bruno, aka “Splash”,  jumped off the ramp into the pool!  Cannon ball! When we’re even braver, they’ll put more water in it.  I’ll let you know how that goes.

Check out my pool pics & video.    I hope your weekend was as epic as mine!Rusty

Sleepy head

Catchin’ a few zzzz’s: Whew!  I’m so tired after a few days @ doggie camp, I think I’ll sleep in today.  But I’m really looking forward to my buddy, Bruno, visiting in a few days.  We can try out my new pool.   Big fido fun!   Zzzzzz… -Rusty-

My buddy, Bruno

Tuesday, June 15th, 2010

Bruno & I hung out for a few days, and had a blast! He’s fun because he’s all about play; he laughs & smiles a lot.   (I know there are some humans out there who don’t think us dogs smile or laugh, but they’re wrong.  It sounds like this.)  Here’s a quick video of us playing.  We were moving so fast, my mom couldn’t keep up with us with the camera!  If you listen close, you can hear Bruno laughing…..

5/29/10 poodle post

Wednesday, June 9th, 2010

Today my new friends, Penney & Sherman visited. I have to admit, I’ve never seen a pug before, and it took some getting used to!  Penney’s fun, and if she likes Sherman, then I do, too.  Here’s a pic of my mom handing out homemade treats.  Look @ how good we all are @ “sit”!

A note from Rusty’s “mom”: I made “Pumpkin-Yogurt Pupsicles”.  They were a big hit!  Check our next “You Are What You Eat” post for the recipe & more of Rusty’s favorite treats ….  Ruth
