Day 1, July 18, 2008


This is my brown standard poodle Bosco watching out the front window for his favorite (NOT!) neighborhood cat (Spike).

Usually he likes to befriend (or at least tries to!) cats. However Spike, in all his catness, has laid out on our sidewalk and taunted Bosco for several years. We open the door for Bosco to go get the paper out of the paper box and if Spike is there he makes a split second decision to CHASE him! As soon as he has chased him into the bushes he gets back to the job at hand, getting the paper!

My mom's cats are fine, he pretty much ignores them, other dogs are ok...but Spike...that is a whole different situation! Bosco spends a lot of time watching for his "friend", to bark uncontrollably and try to tell him off!

I would love to own a standard poodle some day -- I just love them. And Bosco is particulary handsome!

Very cool that you have him trained to retrieve the paper out of the box. Kat

Oh I love your standard poodle. Such a big contrast to my little Frosty (all 3-1/2 pounds of him).
