  1. have another great week Dollores. What a sweet poodle you have ...I love poodles - they are super smart. I have had several in my life time and my latest is Bootz, he has a black body and white paws . He is so jealous of my tiny little chihuahua - aren't dogs the best companions.
    God bless you.......
