Two Poodles living in Spain

The daily lives of two poodles living in Spain. We are a Black Standard Poodle (Grande Caniche) called Dudley and a Cream Standard Poodle called Monica. We were born in a village in the mountains of Andalusia and now live on the Orihuela Costa in Spain. Monica is 4 years old and Dudley is 1. (This blog is in memory of Buddy, one of the original TPLIS who sadly was put to sleep on 27th December 2010).

Goodbye to the Summer!
31 October 2010 @ 16:01

Well that’s the summer over for this year and what a summer it has been. Here on our terrace we managed to reach 50°C and a couple of evenings it was over 30°C….not good when you are permanently wearing a fur coat !!! Thank heavens for marble floors and air conditioning.

 It wasn’t a good summer for my mum though. When we were playing one night I managed to pull her over and she dislocated and fractured her elbow. She had to spend the day in hospital and they thought she might need an operation, but fortunately for her she didn’t. So she spent most of the summer inside nursing her arm in a splint. It was no fun for me and Buddy either as we missed out on our walks on the field, but mum is a lot better now and goes for Fizzy O’therapy (sounds like an Irish drink) three times a week.
Now that the winter is here we will be starting our trips to the beach and I will post some picture of our visits in due course.
Buddy hasn’t been too well recently his is getting very wobbly on his back legs, but the vet gave him some medicine and he seems a lot better now and even tried to nick one of my tuggies, but I soon put him in his place!
Hasta pronto!
P.S. I hope you remembered to put your clocks back!

I am still managing to dodge my bath, but I have been given a close trim - Dolly smells okay to me but my mum says anyone who can eat rabbit muck and other horrible things can't have an opinion on smells - Meg :) xx
