I know a number of you (us) got poodle *things* for Christmas, but what else do you have about the place? Take some photos and share!!

My collection is only small so far, cos of course I've only had Paris for a little over a year. (In comparison, my 'rat things' collection is massive! lol! But I've kept rats for much longer....)


At the back/left is a pair of coat hooks that hubby got me that I haven't found the right spot for yet:



Left front is salt & pepper shakers, which I actually have two sets of, so one stays nice in it's box, and yes, we do use the other set!



Centre is my beswick china poodle that my boss bought for me in a silent auction (for a charity show) last year. She told me there was a person bidding against her, but she kept outbidding them and she told them she didn't care how high they went against her, cos it was for a good cause and I (me) was worth it!! I love my boss!

Centre middle is a cookie cutter that my mum found me:


The coffee mug was what my dad got me just this Christmas, and I adore it!!

And finally on the far right, is Frog, a wee 'hotel for dogs' McDonalds toy that hubby got me just before we got married, and she came with us on our honeymoon! We have a whole series of photos of Frog on various monuments and lookouts throughout our honeymoon, and she was in as many photos as possible. heh

The ribbon around her neck is a wee bit of ribbon left over from making my flowers that I put on her when my hair was being done on the morning of our wedding too. Such a silly wee thing, but so many fond memories that I'll always cherish little "Frog" (We had no reasoning behind naming her Frog either, except that she wasn't.... We're like that.)

Note to self: must visit New Zealand before I die.

My office manager ordered a new calendar for me for 2010, but she got a desk blotter type, which I don't like. So tonight I bought a poodle calendar for my office wall. :)

My Grandparents got me this mug when they went to Australia last year, it is my favourite mug, needless to say!

Lol, the mug says "Only My Poodle Understands Me"

But for some strange reason it is never ever around! *$%#%$*%$*%#*%
I haven't seen it for a week or so, but some idiot in my family probably broke it and is too scared to tell me!

Grrrgghhh!

Yeah, I have a couple of poodle books too:

Shirlee Kalstone's of course!
Poodles by Kerry Donnelly
A poodle book by Pierre Dib

I am so with you!!! Ever since I say Lord of the Rings series I have wanted to go and see such a beautiful country!

I don't have a poodle collection as of yet because until this time last year, my life was primarily horses and kitties so those are the things of my collections. I'm sure I will get poodly things eventually though. I DID START WITH MY POODLE FORUM CALENDAR!! Yes!

I have to say that I really love those mugs!! cute!

Nothing poodles, but I do have a few schnauzer stuffed animals and a schnauzer cookie cutter. I am very picky about the *breed* stuff I buy LOL

I don't really buy any stuff... like knickknacks, collectables etc. My taste is just too expensive as I love the “breed apart” and “Jim Shore” stuff. So, I’ve pledged to stay away from these kind of things and rather buy Ponki something she can use, like a sweater or leash. I do however have a small poodle figurine that someone gave me on some occasion that sits in my office.

Love the photos of New Zeakand! Sigh, SO makes me want to go back. I'm not usually a repeat visitor of places because I always figure there's new places to see, but NZ is definitely somewhere I could see myself returning to. Such a wonderful place!

Anyway, on topic, considering I don't actually have a poodle yet, I do have a couple of poodle things. The salt and pepper shakers I received that are the same as Locket's and Poodles for Dummies. I'm sure this will grow moving forward as I have found people like to give themed items. :)

LOL, I went a bit poodle crazy for the kids this year. We all got a beautiful wooden brown poodle ornament for our tree, from etsy. Then Santa brought each of the kids a stuffed grey poodle. Then Dd got a lot of doll clothing with poodles on it and a poodle purse. :) I've always got my eye out for anything with a brown poodle on it, as you don't seem to see that too often!

Really the only "poodle stuff" i have are handmade things. I have a Beautiful leash holder that a friend in Italy hand burned (cant remember the name of it) with a picture of Riley onto it. She also made me a container with a lid of poodles on it. Georgous! Ill try and get pictures of it!

I have a couple of things I'll get pictures of later as my camera batteries are dead but I can tell you about them lol

I have a huge Poodle mug like these -> CLICK!

I have a wooden coat hanger that's in the shape of a Poodle, its pink with white poka dots. My friend gave it to me last Christmas.

There are MANY Poodle-y things I want but that's another thing!

You should see some of the other things she has made! Whole tables and chests decorated with dog artwork like that! Amazing.
