Hey Jenn, was thinking about you all day, wondering how things were going for you. Sounds like a really long hard day for you and your Hubby. Yes you are so right about poodles not living outside. We have seen some that do live outside and we feel so sorry for them. There is one down the street from us, it is a toy and lives outside all year round. It has a dog house for shelter, but thats it. When it is cold outside at night we sometimes hear it whining and it makes us feel terrible. Even our rottie has a dog house w/2 100 watt bulbs hanging thru the roof of it for warmth, and blankets too. The dog house is in our garage that is attached to our house. If she wants to get warmer she gets in the dog house, but many times she only sleeps in the garage, but not the doghouse because she doesn't like to be to warm. I bet you guys are truely exhausted, should sleep well tonight. I'm sure your dogs will forgive you. Give them a lota' lovin' tomorrow and be happy for them that they do not have to live like the dogs that you groomed today. Why do some people have to be so stupid shen it comes to taking care of their animals, that have to depend on their humans for their care. It really saddens me.
