Default Poodle Knows best....

You have head that old adage "mom knows best". Well last night/this morning it became poodle knows best. I have some how managed to get sick, a cold or allergies... something... Between you and me, I thinkI got it from the doctor's office. This child climbed up on me to see what I was watching on my kindle and sneezed all over me. I was so grossed out, and then his mother came over and says "aww he likes you"... my first thought was, well I don't like him... but never the less despite my bath in anti-bacterial hand gel, I am still sick... Anyways, last night I felt like total poop... Remington must have agreed, as when I went in and went straight to bed. he kept bringing me boxes of anything he could reach. I had crackers, granola bars, a bag of chips, and at least four bottles of water. He was so proud of himself that he was bringing me something I couldn't fuss at him. None the less I got up and made some soup. He kept sniffing it and looking at me like "I don't know if this is okay for you to eat". He must have been right, as I was super sick a little bit later. As I am sitting on the floor in the bathroom thinking if I ever see that kid again I am going to kick him (joke), Remington is sniffing me and putting his nose to my forehead. Oh wow... Really Remington just leave me alone... I thought, but could never say that to him to hurt his feelings. All night he checked on me, my sweet poodle had very little sleep. When I woke up coughing he woul sit up next to me and just look at me. When the alarm went off, I got ready to get up and he put his little paw on me like, you don't need to go to work... Now that I am here, and sound like I swallowed a frog and feel like I have been hit by a truck, I have to admit, my beautiful wonderful poodle really did know best.

I read someone's post about their girl carrying toys and putting them in piles... Remington has a black poodle beanie baby he puts in bed with us... he licks it a few times before he falls asleep. I couldn't agree more, he was born to be a mommie. Never in my life have I ever had a dog that is more human than he is...

By the way, been reading a really cute book called the Dog Nanny. It is a pretty cute little romance set in Waco Texas.... My Texas folks, I know you are like me thinking Waco isn't very romantic, but it is cute... With three poodles in the plot how could it be anything but cute! It was a cheap buy on Amazon Kindle...

Oh how sweet! Remington is such a good nurse for you! I know just how you feel - I had the flu last month and still have repiratory problems and am still on meds... But when I was sick I just felt SO guilty that I couldn't take Lily for walks or play with her. My husband was sick for a few days too so we were barely able to even get her in the yard to go potty. I hope you are better soon. Take care of yourself and listen to what Remington tells you

What a good poodle nurse! I had surgery in May and was off work for a month. I had several people tell me that I needed to be carefull that Lexi did not jump on me like she will sometimes do when she gets excited. I was never worried that she would. I slept on the couch for the first week to keep from moving much and she never once tried to get up with me, but layed on the floor next to me. I knew she would just know to be carefull and she was.

UGH -- I had the flu for two weeks over Christmas -- Gatsby sat and WATCHED me sleep for days on end -- never left my side! Ronnie said he hurried back from his walks to take his place!

When I was seven I had meningitis, pneumonia and stomach flu at the same time -- TERRIBLE! -- after I got out of the hospital, my mom put me to bed and I slept for 36 hours straight. My mom said our cat sat on my pillow and hissed at her any time she tried to come near me -- apparently Sylvester knew I needed my sleep!

No offense gentlemen, but I'd take a poodle/cat nurse over a man any day!
