Good security requires an attack poodle

...except I think Silvertwinky is glad there wasn't an attack poodle around during his skunk experience

just try to hold on to this knuckle head


don't feel bad about calling.

one morning i was half asleep walking rocky in my back yard. he came across a possum.

he decided to have breakfast early!

he is 12 now and in semi retirement, in his prime he was 125 pounds!

needless to say he never got that possum because i had hold of him by his tail! with both hands.

he didn't know if he wanted to bite me or the possum!

i'm sure he would have just licked it like he does to our cats! yeah right!

Not involving an animal but......

About 2 years ago, my wife and her friend were having a yard sale out front. I was inside on the phone talking to our insurance agent about our policy coverage.

All of a sudden my wife runs in and tells me she needs the phone immediately. She dials 911. Someone did a hit and run at the nearby intersection in our somewhat quiet residential area. The police show up and find that the victim is only slightly dazed due to the accident. They also find a bumper laying in the road that was ripped off the offending hit and run car.

After another 10 minutes, someone weilding num-chucks (which is the Bruce Lee type weapon with two sticks joined by a short chain) shows up. This was the hit and run driver coming back to the scene to reclaim his bumper with his license plate attached. May have been the Drugs????

Now for the somewhat stupid action on my part. I go back in the house to finish the call with the insurance agent. I hit the redial button to get the insurance agent but you guessed it. I spent about 30 seconds explaining why I just called 911.

One night last summer, shortly after I let my two Golden Retrievers out into the backyard, I heard barking followed by yelping. I ran and opened the sliding glass door to see what was going on. Before I could react and close the slider, one of my Goldens who had just been sprayed by a skunk, ran into the house. He was freshly sprayed by the skunk and was still dripping with the liquid. I don't know if anyone else out there has been up close and personal with skunk spray, but it is nasty stuff -- much nastier than the smell when you drive by where a skunk was hit by a car. When up close, it is not the smell that overpowers you but the effects the spray has on you physically. I immediately started to retch uncontrollably and my eyes were watering like faucets turned on high. I was rendered absolutely useless in the cleanup effort and ended up sitting it out in the Blazer for 2 hours with a gas mask on while poor hubby cleaned the house and the dog. Moral of this story is to turn the outside lights on for a few minutes BEFORE letting the dogs out!

I am REALLY glad it wasn't skunks last night. I have been close to a freshly sprayed dog and shared the snow maiden's experience.

I think everyone should have an attack poodle. Really, they are hunting dogs, and he was a lot more upset about the whole ordeal than our Great Dane ever would have been.

Windsor was wound for HOURS. He still isn't done looking for the raccoons every time he goes outside.

Up until last night it was nearly impossible to get him to go outside. He'd just hold it forever so he didn't have to leave my side, and wouldn't go out unless I went out with him. Today on the other hand, I can't get him to come back inside!

Can't say I have an attack poodle but we have a killer of a dog!

I'm kind of glad he was inside the A/S during my skunk encounter! He likes to bark a lot.

Big greetings from over the pond...did I ever tell U those CHOCK A/Ss were WONDERFUL...THANK'S....
OK Guys lay off the POODLE...they r great, going bk to the early '60s, ( sigh !!! )....Poodles were very vashionable, and my MOM used to knit those huge thick 3-4 ply cardigans, with a poodle's head on the back, she did about 4/5 kinds of animals, and was always busy knitting, 2day sadly, she can barely hold a spoon 2 feed herself, at almost 80 yrs young, bless her...we still talk abt those cardies, and how the money paid for treats, like a cream cake on a saturday morning... .
Whilst on our last visit 2 Orlando, Mark and I were taking a stroll around the villa estate, when a little SNAKE crossed our path, we stood there looking at it, when a huge 4x4 slowly crept up b/hind us, Mark says he would pick it up and move it, being Autistic, one of his problems is, he knows NO danger...the Guy got out of his truck, took his walking cane and moved the snake onto the wastground, looked at us an growled..." Don't mess with the snakes Guys...they BITE, real mean...OK ", with the politeness of B A, from the
So when U meet a POODLE...think SNAKE...don't be REALY AFFRAID...Chris.....

It's NICE 2B Important...but it's more Important 2B NICE...Chris.....
