Well, here is my confession of the day! I finally have found time to get back to blogging, but I have not done so in such a long time that I am having trouble doing things like changing the layout to add new "gadgets" for ads and such. If you have good computer skills, love doing all things Poodle-related and might enjoy co-owning a blog, or just working on one as a hobby-- please get in touch! I have plenty of article content, product reviews and even some very nice new artwork coming soon for the banner, but I am having difficulty putting it all together. The older I get, the less computer s ..read more

Back to Blogging, with Brodie
Poodle Blogger
by Melanie Schlaginhaufen

Hi, it's Brodie, also affectionally known at times as Bobo, or just Bo. My Mom has been slack on blogging now for some time, so I thought I would step in and give her a hand. First order of business, we need to find some vendors for the blog, because Poodleit, and others that are just filling up space, no longer seem to be active. If you have a favorite vendor of Poodle products, let us know so we can reach out to them! At this time, we don't require any fee or affiliate percentage, since we are starting from scratch to once again build up the Poodle Blog readership. We are glad to review any ..read more

Never say never... Just when you think you have cleared the dog show bug out of your system (after all, it started over forty years ago, I ought to be over it by now, right?) along comes a gorgeous puppy. Brodie is now 11 months old, and has brought so much happiness and laughter into the Schlaginhaufen home! Thank you to his breeder and co-owner, Bonnie Winings of Crystal Creek, for sharing him with us and encouraging us to go ahead and show him as a puppy; thank you to Jennifer Anders, Kelly Knight, Amy Corbitt and Payton Burns who helped us in UKC (he finished his UKC championship the first ..read more

2020 Thoughts on Commercial Dog Food
Poodle Blogger
by Melanie Schlaginhaufen
2y ago
WYSONG TRUTH 45: APPROVED FOR ILL HEALTH? To assure safety and wholesomeness of pet foods, state and federal regulatory agencies prescribe or permit ingredients. Additionally, ingredients must be described on labels by precise nomenclature dictated by alphabet agencies such as AAFCO and the FDA. The problem is, those who sit on the committees deciding what can or cannot be approved may have commercial links. They can push through ingredients that should not be in foods, and prevent the approval of those which either rub prejudices the wrong way or which may create unwelcome competition to th ..read more

Puppy Size? It's that time of year
Poodle Blogger
by Melanie Schlaginhaufen
2y ago
Many of you, like me, are stuck indoors right now as we wait out the COVID-19 epidemic. We find ourselves looking at Facebook or the Internet more than normal, and even if already surrounded by dogs we love, it can be hard not to get "puppy fever" when we see beautiful litters of puppies advertised. My parti-colored Standard Poodle boy has recently sired a litter of pups, and I have been in touch with some prospective buyers recently to help the breeder find good homes for the puppies. They ask questions about the size the pups are expected to be, the colors (and with a multi-colored litter ..read more

Scout and Murray On the Rocks...Oldie but goodie, from July 2010 Melanie Schlaginhaufen Well it seems that Poodle clowns Murray, age 2 and Scout, age 6, were in the water once again this past weekend. These two can take even the most picturesque setting (this time at Great Pond, Aurora, Maine) and add a bit of humor. This one I call Scout and Murray On the Rocks (no, that is not a new drink!) Chris has been so kind through the years to send photos for the poodle blog, as well as photos of "real dogs" for my dog training blog. Rick Miles is another wonderful Poodle photographer who has be ..read more

Grieving a Special Friend
Poodle Blogger
by Melanie Schlaginhaufen
2y ago
This article was originally published here on the Poodle blog in 2011. Because I have been speaking to several people recently who are deeply grieving a beloved pet, I decided to update it and repost, in hopes that it might be of comfort to someone. I have sat where you are sitting. I have stood where you are standing. I have stood frozen with my hand on the door because I dreaded opening it--I did not want to go into a house that was missing the dog I so deeply loved. A friend of mine is today, as I write this, grieving a dog that she lost way too young. I want to share something with you w ..read more

We’re BACK!
Poodle Blogger
by Melanie Schlaginhaufen
2y ago
Hi everyone! You probably haven’t seen any new posts on this blog in the past couple of years. This is because my Mom sold the Poodle blog, when she got busy with other things. But, I missed having a place to share my thoughts and photos with you! So Mommy contacted the person who purchased the blog and she sold it back to us! It may take awhile before the Poodle blog starts gaining steam again, and you may see something on the site from the previous owner that we haven’t yet deleted. Please bear with Mom while she gets back in to blogging mode!  Meanwhile, stay in touch and tell your ..read more

On Memorial day, I received this wonderful "Joey's Journal" entry from my friend Charlene Dunlap of Canine Horizons.  Honestly, I think every day is a holiday for the dogs who live with Charlene and Glenn!

We hope you are all having a very pleasant Memorial Day. Since we've been rather confined the previous three days due to our fortnightly groomathon, we decided we'd spend the ..read more
