Take a walk in Blue Bell Woods listen to the sounds around you, of bird song and bees. Smell the flowers and the scent of Spring in the air. Every year is a new beginning and every day a blessing

My Baby Poodle..........
Bridget was a tiny toy poodle. She was under 1 pound when we brought her home. She was bigger than life from the beginning. She was sweet and sassy and too big for her britches. She thought she was as big as a lion. She only lived until she was 5 years old. Its hard to believe she is gone from us and sometimes its hard to believe she was here .....except for the fact that she left such an impact in our lives. Every time we loose a beloved pet it just breaks our hearts. It never gets easier. After Buttons died I thought I would never recover but we got Bridget and she helped us through. One pet never replaces the other but you fall in love all over again.
Buttons was the love of my life when it comes to poodles she was so dependent on us. She had epilepsy and a lot of health issues that just endeared us all the more. Our lives revolve around our poodles. Once our kids left home they became everything to us. Every one was a blessing.
This is Bambi and Buttons
We had a silver poodle named Bonnie Prince Charlie. He played more with the kids, he was the little boys play mate. They put stickers on him and called him the president of the United States (probably the best one we have had) he was a country kid. When we moved into town he was killed by a car after someone left the gate open. He didnt know city life and the dangers. We soon got another poodle we named Bonnie, after Charlie. She was a wonderful girl and we had some great times with her. She trained us and was a beauty.
When I had my horse out at Golden Valley a guy named Alex had some poodle pups and I just had to have one. Thats how we got Buttons, she was cute as a button. Bonnie tollerated her at first but soon got used to her and they were close. One day someone at work found a little white poodle in the woods near their house. It was October I think. At least it was right before first snow. She was a pistol. We called her Bambi because she came from the woods. She fixated on the men in her life and all us women have scars. She was mean but sweet too. She never did get over whatever her problems were but we loved her anyway. For a time we had 3 poodles.
We will always have poodles in our lives. At this time we have 4 and I will talk about them later.
