Wednesday POTD

I'm actually cheating a little for today's POTD because I didn't take this picture.....my sister did. This is her new puppy that she just got the other day. His name is Toby & he's 5 months old. She just had to have her other poodle Cindy put to sleep a few weeks ago because her health was really declining & she couldn't even see anymore & she literally kept walking into the walls. Cindy was almost 16 years old & she originally belonged to our Grandma & Grandpa, but when they had to go to a nursing home, Donna offered to take care of Cindy for them & she ended up getting very attached to her. She emailed me this picture today since we live 500 miles away from each other, but now I can't wait to get home & see this cutie in person! Here's another pic she sent of him looking at her through the gate & sticking his tongue out at her:

I've never seen a poodle that was both black & white before....thought that was really neat. I just know this is going to be one very spoiled dog. But I'm glad that my sister was able to bring herself to get another dog after having to put Cindy to sleep.

Tomorrow, my dh is taking a personal day at work & we're going to go do some Christmas shopping together. I will definitely be taking my camera with me & may end up having more than one POTD to share tomorrow :)

Until then, have a great night,
Benita

what a cutie! I'm sorry to hear of your sisters loss, but having a new puppy should help her spirits. :)

Wow! I've never seen a B&W poodle either! Ours is champagne and as he's aging, he's turning brown on his back. And he's groomed about once a year, so he doesn't even look like a poodle. I worry about him freezing so keep him shaggy. Have a great time shopping!!

What a sweet pup. Poodles are really fun dogs to have around, they are loaded with personality.
