    We have a visitor!

    "Hey guys! My name's Fletcher!"

    My nephew, Fletcher, is going to be staying with us for a week or two while my sister is healing from an emergency surgery she had Sunday night. She has a huge incision on her stomach and Fletch is notorious for jumping up on people, so its best for her safety that we take him for a while. Some of you may remember my sister's other dog Skylar (white bi-eyed Husky/GSD mix)? He's doing great and is staying with my sister to be her nurse. He's actually the first thing she asked for when she woke up after surgery! You can tell my sister loves her dogs just as much as us PTers do.

    Fletcher is a Standard Poodle, a breed notorious for being intelligent. He sure is intelligent, but he is so stubborn that he will not listen to a word you say half the time. You can literally see him thinking on whether or not he should really sit when you tell him to. While he's here I am giving him a crash course in obedience training and I'm hoping I can send him home a more well-behaved dog.

    "Obedience training? I thought we were just having a sleepover..."

    "Wait up... what's this I hear about a VISITOR?!"

    "I think I remember you....."

    "Oh yeah, you're family! HUGS!!"


    "Beanpole, Stretch, etc... My leg to body ratio gets me all kinds of nicknames..."

    "...but my dashing good looks gets me all the attention!"

    "Don't forget about me! I'm just as adorable, right?"

    "Fletcher, you're on Sala's pink leash.... no wonder that little poodle mix a few houses down was giving us weird looks."

    "C'mon Towser, the water's nice!"
    "No. Just no. You are breaking the laws of the universe. Its a trap. I'll never walk on the liquid ground."

    Dear Fletchy-pants, its a bit too chilly to be in the water.
    "What are you talking about? Its NEVER too cold to go swimming!"

    "Okay, outdoors is boring now. Naptime!"
    And that's it for now! I'm sure I'll end up taking plenty more pictures before Stretchy Legs goes home. Plus, Towser's very first birthday is a week from today (on Halloween)!! Expect a major celebration to ensue.

    Hee hee - yup, that's that Standard Poodle intelligence at work, all right! They are smart enough to know when paying attention is important, and when a human's gonna give in, so that's why they get the "stubborn" rep! Glad he and Towser are still good buddies!

    He's gorgeous! Thanks for sharing the pics! Have fun, Fletcher and Towser!

    If each pet we love takes a part of our heart and replaces it with a part of theirs, my heart is a very strange collection of pieces, but I wouldn't have it any other way

    Some people believe holding on and hanging in there are signs of great strength. However, there are times when it takes much more strength to know when to let go, and then do it. --Ann Landers
