My neighbors went to Hawaii for three weeks and were going to board their 9 month old Poodle, Sam for the whole time. I had offered to keep him but I think they thought that it would be too much of an inposition for me. Well, they went to see the place that they were going to keep him and decided "NO WAY", so he is with me. So far Chloe & JB are handling the whole thing pretty well. Chloe is being her normal alpha self. I've been being really careful to make sure that they all have their own space & enough attention. It's been alot of fun. I've never been a real Poodle person, but I adore this little guy. He's a sweetheart!!!
