First dog passes on....

It is with great regret that we pass on the news that Sutter Brown, Gov. Brown's corgi, has died at the age of 13.
Other celebrity dogs have caught my fancy as well, but Sutter was always special.
Which other dog got to hang out in the California State House? I wish I had met him at the dog park.

Life is good

After Thanksgiving, I like to relax in front of the non-functioning fireplace.  (That is ok since it rarely gets cold here.)  I have just had a professional haircut, and I believe I am looking awesome.  Getting groomed is a bit tiresome, though, so I must chill.

Living the high life

Sometimes I need a break from the Feeder and the Other One.  Yes, I took a bit of a vacation with two pals, Seamus and Auggie.  With three boys there was a bit of jockeying for position, but I think you can see from the pix that I came out OK in this group.  I had a blast running amok, disobeying my hostess and teaching bad habits to all involved.  (Of course you can lie on the couch if you want to! People love it when you jump up on them and plant a big kiss! Counter surfing? why not? so much FUN!!!!!).

Poodles for Equality

Gertrude Stein and Alice B. Toklas and one of their poodles, Basket (Apparently they had three in succession, all named Basket) in an old photo re-published in The Guardian (Dec. 3, 2013).
The Feeder and I thought this slightly bored looking poodle would have approved of the recent Supreme Court ruling. As do we.

BETA, the movie

First there was Rin-Tin-Tin, then Lassie, then Benji, and of course Beethoven and then that ridiculous one crayon short of a full pack, Marley.

Now there is Beta, starring in her first movie directed by Jon Lefkovitz. It is a psychological mysterical historical pastoral and romantical 13 minute movie.

You probably didn't know I have connections with the movie industry - but hey there it is. Beta has a bunch of poodle DNA, so we is cousins.
If you have a teeny bit of time to spare I think you will enjoy this charming, very poodlish flic.

First Selfie

I have had some complaints that I haven't been posting moi as much as I should be, so here I am.
This is my first selfie, taken with the Feeder's box.  She says it will be easier once I get opposable thumbs.

Are white poodles too 60's?

Janie Bryant, as described in this NYT article, is owned by these two lovelies.
She designed the clothes for Mad Men on TV.  I have watched that show with the Feeder, and know that her main comment was that all the clothes look like what she has in her closet.  (Does she need a makeover? ) And how about these poodles?  Do they really need the fluffy pom pom stuff on their legs?  It looks a bit like they are back in the 60's too.

Other Naughty Dogs

Just so you know I am NOT the only one who enjoys munching on a bit of plastic.  My friend Wally is normally much more obedient than I am but here you see the product of his rebellion.  Yes, even mild mannered lab-retreiver-unknown descended Wally can go astray and send a MESSAGE to his people.  PAY ATTENTION! TO ME!!!!!

Dog philosophy

This is great advice from the California First Dog.  Yes, I do mean Governor Brown's corgi -Sutter.
While this may have something to do with the budget surplus this year, I think it really is about bones. It is always about bones.  And isn't it great to have a back yard in which to bury them?
