The Adventures of Sheldon: A Handsome Devil and He Knows It!

This past weekend Sheldon went to the groomer for his monthly wash, trim and fluff. We splurged for the full service extras: nail trim, an herbal conditioner and teeth cleaning. Sheldon loves going to the grooming salon; his groomer fawns all over him, lavishing Sheldon with praise and hearty doses of petting and belly rubs along the way. Anyway, when he finally returned home he was so excited about his haircut that he ran over to the mirror to check himself out. He is one smart poodle. As he admired himself in the mirror, I swear I could hear him thinking: "I look really handsome". You see, Sheldon looks good and he knows it! Later in the evening I sat down for a few minutes, and he ran over and posed for this picture with me, turning to the camera at just the right angle. He is a handsome devil, isn't he?

I like a dog who takes pride in how he looks.

standard poodles are supposed to be one of the smartest dogs so I'm not surprised he does that.

Sheldon looks great after his beauty parlour treatment Rick! He obviously takes great pride in his appearance and likes to look good! He's a really cute looking dog and very intelligent too! You must be very proud of him.

He is a hunk.

Sheldon is striking. And poodles are really smart, aren't they? No wonder he loves the special treatment. I'm thinking about a dog again and a poodle is on the list--maybe a smaller one though.
