half a day at the lake with Roxy

Spent a half a day at the lake today. No rain!! Ya! Although still chilly here in Oregon. Roxy had a wonderful time. She loves rocks and as you can see from the picture she was in heaven. So many to choose from! She loved checking out the geese. Almost too much... So many people are shocked to hear that Standard poodles have that bird hunting instinct but its true. Believe me. The last trip to the river was frightening. She jumped right into the swift current of the river in an attempt to get the birds! Now, she is leashed. Close call....

What a great way to spend the day! It looks like maybe Roxy has forgiven you. And what is it with dogs and rocks? My two do the same thing. Chew on them, carry them around......I dont' get it.

Yes, Standard Poodles were originally bred for hunting. I have three Standards at the moment.

I have a website all about Standard Poodles and I'm working on a page all about Hunting Poodles, which I hope to get up soon. Check out my site.

something different!
