Poodle Overload!

I was sound asleep when Mom and Dad got back late last night/early this morning. They knew not to come and get me, so when Dad heard Beamish barking like a crazy dog this morning, he figured it was time to bring me home.

I had a great time hanging out with my harem of poodles. Here I am hanging out with Tom and Truffles. Truffles is so mellow and let's face it - she loves having me around. She asked me to stay a little longer but I had to get back home because I missed sleeping in my bed.

As you can see Truffles rules the roost. She is the senior (at 6!) poodle and she keeps everyone in line. The best place to be boss is always on the sofa.

Truffles is a true lady. While the rest of the poodles were running crazy, Truffles would just jump on the sofa and chill. I cannot jump on the sofa so Tom would put me up there next to Truffles and we would laugh at the other dogs.

This is Beamish. She is such a hoot. Beamish and Truffles are sisters and Beamish is crazy loud. I like hanging with her but she is a little much for me. She likes to bark and run around the yard. She scares people who walk by the yard, but she is really harmless.

This little chick terrorized me non-stop. Sunshine a.k.a. Sunny, is a barker. Yap, yap, yap - yikes! She has the most high pitched bark ever and even Tom and Dorothy were at their wits end. When Sunny was not terrorizing me, barking, and annoying everyone, she was flirting with me. Don't worry Pearly Poo, you have nothing to worry about.
Sunny is really cute but she doesn't have an off button. I tried my best to find it because my head hurt from all the barking, but no luck. Dorothy had to hold Sunny still so Mom could get a decent picture of her.

Don't I look relaxed? I love vacations!

Shadow is Sunny's sister. She is mellow like Truffles so I spent a lot of time hanging out with her. She doesn't bark like her sister, but once Sunny starts barking, Shadow just has to join her.

Mom called Sunny and Shadow the tiny terrors. So we have the party girls and the tiny terrors. And me. They called me the king. How appropriate, don't you think?

Even though I had a great time hanging with my harem, I'm so glad that Mom and Dad are back from wine country. They did more than just drink wine while they were away. They went to an aquarium to see some sharks, took a city tour, and ate a lot of food.

Can you believe that Mom is already planning her next vacation? I told her that if she doesn't take me with then she has to take me to Salinger's house so that I can have a real vacation. That dude is a party animal and I know that we could get into lots of trouble together.

Dad leaves for Miami on Thursday and then has to go back to San Francisco next week. Mom must stay with me 24/7 for the next week or else I'm going on strike!

Dude! You should totally come here for a vacation! I'll have mom cook us up some bacon and scratch our butts! It'll be awesome!

Love,

Salinger dude! Mom is talking about going to Hawaii again and of course I can't go. I need to talk to Dad and tell him to tell Mom no way Jose! What is wrong with that woman?

I'm so glad I can stay with you if I need to. Bacon eating and butt scratching sounds like a party to me!

Hi Stubby,

We are glad that you had such a nice visit with all those cute poodles. Did you learn any French while you was there??? Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha!

Riley this is the last time I'm taking you blogg'n with me! Don't mind him, he's bored!

Luv,
Star and Riley.

Hi Star & Riley! Thanks for stopping by. I am going to check out your bloggie right now.

I didn't learn any French from the poodles, but they did teach me lots of bad words. I can't repeat any of them because I don't like to be bad. Let's just say I've heard these words on HBO.

Hi Stubby!
Ohhh, I am so glad you are home! It looks like you really had your paws full with those poodles!
I think we should start some kind of campaign against our parents leaving us. I am willing to picket and shave my head if it will make them stay with us ALL the time!
Welcome back home!!! :)

Hi Pearly Poo! I don't think head shaving and picketing will work with my mom, but a lot of guilt goes a long way.

Mom left me at home for a little while today with Dad while she ran some errands. I am going to hide her car keys so that she stays home tonight.

Hi Lilo! The little poodles did give me a headache so I'm so happy to be back home.

I would love to vacation in Indy next time my parents go away. Perhaps I could spend a little at each blogger's house. I'm going to run that by Mom to see what she thinks about it.

Hi Melissa & Emmitt! Mom and Dad did have a great time, but I don't know how that was possible without me with them.

I missed you guys and all my bloggie friends. I'm still catching up with everyone and it looks like everyone has been having a great time.

Stubby xoxo
