Back to the beach!

Tuesday, June 28th, 2011

Hey, y’all!  This poodle’s headed back to the beach – finally. (Enough with the rain!)  I hope your weekend & summer are as good as mine’s shapin’ up to be.  Wooftastik!  ~Rusty~

PS — Dawgs, if you’re afraid of fireworks, ask your humans to stay home with you this weekend. Stay inside, maybe in the most insulated room in the house, with some background sound on so you can’t hear the fireworks as well.  Dig into a special, yummy chewy.  Or play fetch or tug with your people.  I know fireworks can be ruff for some of you, but you’ll be ok.  And, keep your cool:  Hit the beach or a pool!

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 power nap

Thursday, August 26th, 2010

Ahh… Home sweet home! My humans are back from vacation, & I’m back from the rover resort.  I had a grrr-eat time there this time.  My new friend, Paula, said I was Mr. Social, playing with all the dogs.  I didn’t swim in the pool, though – still a little nervous about it.  I need more practice in my pool @ home.  So I’m napping on the couch and Ruth’s cooking bacon. (What an amazing smell!)

Did you know today is National Dog Day? In honor of that, here’s some previously unseen footage of Bruno & I playing pool-side.  We had a blast!  Now back to napping:  What better way to celebrate Dog Day than bacon-scented doggie dreams?   –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

Wednesday, July 14th, 2010

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-

A Fido 4th

Friday, July 2nd, 2010

I’m so excited that I get 3 whole days with my “parents”, Ruth & Tim! Looks like we’ll go to the beach, start up the Cheezeburger Machine, and play a lot!  Ruth says they’ll stay home with me on the 4th to help me if I’m scared of the fireworks.  (I think I’ll be fine, but it’s nice to know they love me.)  Plus, they said they might get me a cool pool to play in so I don’t get too hotLucky dog!
