Poodle Party!

Yes, it probably sounds crazy to some people, but not if you own a standard poodle I bet! Daughter, her best friend, our dog Hawkeye and I traveled to Daytona Beach, Florida to visit a wonderful couple and attend the poodle party they were throwing for the Flickr standard poodle group. This pic was taken after one of the dogs (and her owners) left so unfortunately we don't have a complete group shot. It was so much fun meeting all these people and their dogs in person.
This is Cliff and the lovely Molly, two of our host's dogs.
This is our host and hostess, Mary and Beau, surrounded by poodles. Thank you both so much...we had a wonderful time. Hawkeye slept and slept on the way home. I think he was worn out!
Why is this poodle pup talking on the phone? You can read the touching story here and the background story here. It's a very sweet story about the love between and man, his dog, and a whole community of people who got behind them.
This is my daughter holding the dog who went home early and didn't make the group shot. Cute little Dixie the Dog. Dixie has her own terrific blog.
Here's Hawkeye on the way tired!
Tomorrow I'll post a little more about our getaway to Florida.

I love standard poodles! I would love to have one but I don't think the Kitten would like it - and not the hubby either. But I don't know why.

Adorable! I could not imagine my life without a dog in it...and more like 2-5 dogs!

Joyce, thanks for sharing a photo of me on your blog! I had a blast playing with Hawkeye and my humans enjoyed chatting with you!
