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).

New Shoes

“Hey I put some new shoes and suddenly everything is right” *.

Here is a picture of me in my new shoes….
well I call them my socks, but they’re not socks really, they are Protectors (“in the avenues and alleyways………” **). These are my new stop protectors, smart aren’t they. 
Why do I need them…..well when I am chasing my ball on the field I pounce on it and slide across the ground which is very stony and I keep tearing lumps out of my stop.  (This is the carpal pad which is found on the back of your front leg which is used for additional traction when stopping or descending a slope….hence the name STOP!) These smart little sock-like things protect my stop…so no more cuts….clever eh!
Just remember you saw them here first.
"Hey I got my new shoes on…….”*
Hasta pronto!
