Whenever possible I take a dog or two in the car with me (weather permitting).

I have an ex-pen in my trunk. When I go visit friend and family, all 4 dogs come with me. I can leave 2 in the pen, 2 out, and rotate.

For social time, invite people to your home instead, lol.

Have more than one spoo.

Doggy day care a couple of times a week can help too.
Diggin your post ;-)

See your post is one of the reasons I feel I need one more spoo to add to my duo... This way I can take one with me and not feel guilty that one is home without a companion. I am convinced I need 3 lol

I fully support having more than one spoo, lol. One is never enough, we all eventually suffer from MPS - multiple poodle syndrome, :-). Welcome to the club!

Well, I'll tell ya. We just adopted Daisy a week ago and she spent her life in a kennel only being allowed out once a week. Despite this, she is still one happy, content, and well-behaved girl.

Now, I'm not advocating a lifestyle anywhere near that for a poodle- or any dog for that matter- I'm just saying your dogs will be just fine if left alone on a regular basis so that you can live your human life.

That's so true Kukukachoo! I hate crating my dogs but it is necessary when I'm not right there because Maddy is still so destructive, but it's good to remember once in a while that they have good lives! So we can't feel guilty because we need to do other things too to lead a full human life. Yesterday I was outside with the dogs picking up poop and watching them romp around while I did it, when they darted back inside and that's when that darn Maddy used her long monkey fingers to get a chocolate cake off the high oak cutting board where I'd put it, and quick as a wink they ate most of it! I should have securely latched the door while we were outside

This really puts things in to perspective. Here I am thinking Ralph has it rough lounging around the house alone for a while... those poor dogs out there have it much much worse. :(
