The Adventures of Sheldon and Duncan

What's better than one poodle going out for an adventure? How about TWO poodles going out for an adventure? Thus begins a new periodic series for the blog, The Adventures of Sheldon and Duncan. Think of it as the dynamic duo, the wonder twins, the double act...well you get the picture. The day started out with Sheldon and Duncan going for a ride. Sheldon of course is an old pro, and makes the journey back and forth between Palm Springs and San Diego twice a week. It was his job to show his new little brother the ropes, as it were. In fact, in this photo, we actually still had a little rope on Duncan, as we were just on our way to the pet store to buy a lead. Duncan did very well in the car, and was fearless as he gazed out the window watching palm trees whizz by as we drove down Palm Canyon Drive...

above: we stopped for a bite to eat at Ruby's Diner and sat on the patio. Duncan and Sheldon sat patiently, and flirted with the waitress. She remembered Sheldon from when he went to Ruby's as a puppy too, just last year.

above: Next up was a trip to Pet Co to buy all sorts of puppy supplies. Duncan got a new collar and lead, organic shampoo, holistic treats and of course, all natural food! Here we are in front of the Quick Tag machine, making new ID tags for both kids. They waited semi-patiently as the giant machine made whirring and grinding noises as it engraved the tags on the spot.

above: Back home, the kids decided it was time to play. Owen joined in the fun and played well with Duncan, who is about the same size! It was a fun time for all. I just love how they all get along so well. Now if only I could train them do chores...

Yeah, that whole lack of opposable thumbs thing kinda makes the chore thing difficult.
