New Puppy Toy Poodle Joey

I would like to introduce you to our newest member of the family, Joey. He is an apricot Toy Poodle. He is very small. My friend keeps telling me to put him next to something when I take his picture so everyone can see just how small he really is. As you can see, I haven't done that yet.

We bought him from acquaintances in Montana on Wednesday. Today, Saturday, he is really comfortable being here. He is really active and driving the German Shorthair, Daisy, crazy. It's too bad Buck, the lab, went camping with Randy last night because Buck seems to like him more than Daisy does.

Joey was named by my 7 year old Granddaughter Kenzie. She had been thinking of names for 3 weeks. Kenzie has named all the new animals of her other Grandparents and friends and even renamed some of the horses. Vegas is now Spirit for instance.

Kenzie wants to be a Vet when she grows up. A Rescue Vetrenarian she says. On a field trip last year they saw a baby lamb being born and she thought it was so gross. She told her mom that the farmer stuck his hand up the sheeps butt and pulled this lamb out and all the momma's guts came out too. Jenny tried numerous times to explain it to her but she still thought is was gross. So when Kenzie told me she was going to be a Vet I asked her how she was going to do with that since she would have to deliver lambs. She informed me that Vets don't deliver lambs, farmers do! She really is amazing with animals and I wouldn't be surprised at all if she doesn't indeed become a Vet.
