My Toys

Hi everyone! Not much has been happening around here lately, so I thought I would take this opportunity to show you all my great toy collection. All my relatives (mum, dad, aunty Mel, grandma & grandpa's, godmum V etc) buy me a lot of toys, and whenever mum or dad go away for work or holidays, they always bring Paddy and I back a toy. I am really proud of my collection..

Sunday Best

Look out birds here I come!

I love playing fetch, this is my stick for the day!

Thats a giant statue of Louis the Sun King behind me, its huge!

Isnt this a pretty building, pretty just like moi, ha!

Hi Friends!

Today was a fun day, Pupup agreed to take care of Baby Bro Barkley so me and Mamam could get some good quality time together - just the two of us. We went for a nice long walk around Montpellier and enjoyed taking pics amongst the pretty town scenery. We saw lots of paw friends and even a couple of pretty King Charles Cavaliers that I ran up to thinking they were by good blogging pals Momo and Pinot, but Mamam said that they live half way across the world so it couldn't be them!! Now we are back home and while Pupup and Baby Bro are at the pub watching the soccer, me and Mamam are snuggling on the couch with a cup of tea and cookies. Happy Sunday!
Love from Ripley

Hey look at all of my cousins, gees Im a lucky dog!
Happy paws from Buddy


Poodle Soup is proud to announce we have a new contributor to our blog. Welcome Buddy, we look forward to reading about your adventures!!

Buddy's 1st post....
One sunny day at the end of a beautiful summer spent on the shores of the Mediterranean, my human companions informed me that they would be returning to their native country, Canada, in January, and they invited me to come along. Having lived all of my life until that point in the South of France (I was born in a small town near Nimes, called Beauvoisin), I was worried about the culture and temperature shock of living in Canada. Two years later, I have happily adapted to the people and the snow (love it!). Although both the humans and dogs are not as warm and as culturally aware as my compatriots, the city in which I live, Ottawa, has a large proportion of francophones (it is situated on the border of Ontario and “la belle province”, le Québec), so linguistically speaking, I still switch often between English and French (as my human companions are bilingual, but native anglophones, I had already been switching back and forth for quite some time). As for the snow, I am so grateful for the good fortune of living with snow for several months of the year. It seems like each year it comes again as a pleasant, cold surprise. I really can’t get enough of running through deep stretches of untouched powder. I feel that this experience has given me a taste of the amazement of the original French explorer dogs at the sight of the endless expanses of snowy fields…and it connects me to the history of my newly adopted country, le Canada. Je suis un vrai canadien-français!

New Tricks!

Hi Ripley!

Hope your Christmas was fun? We had a blast - we have been learning to shake hands and sit and roll - I have got the hang of it but Paddy is taking a little longer..but he's almost got it..

But only for a few seconds.....thank goodness!!
I went out for a walk with my Puppup and baby bro, and my Puppup couldnt find me. Panic set in for a few seconds but I was found. You see it was a bit chilly so I walked into the pharmacy with the magic sliding doors. But then once I was inside I couldnt get out!!
Luckily my Puppup saw me and came and opened the magic sliding doors to let me out. Phew.
All good, back at home snuggling with Mamam now.
Crisis over.

My New Hat..

Hi Ripley! I loved your Paris photos! Speaking of traveling, my ma recently went to Venice and she bought me back a great hat - I love to wear it all the time - it's going to come in very handy this summer I think...

Paris & Me

Here I am sitting in the TGV on my way to Paris admiring the lovely French scenery.
Here I am very comfortably looking after bags filled with presents for ME!! Thats my Grandma in the red jacket pushing me along.

As an Aussie Poodle Ive been lucky enough to see quite a bit of the world by living here in France. A few months ago Grandma came to visit us in France. Me and Maman went up to Paris to pick her up from the airport. We had to take the TGV which is a supa fast train, I of course sat on Mamans lap all the way, none of this business putting me in a unfriendly cage locked away in the baggage section. The thing I like about France is that it is wonderful how I am allowed to travel in trains and stay in hotels with my human family, quite different from Australia. Mamam would never be happy with anything less as I am her baby and she loves me so much!!

Back in Business!

Dear Friends!!
Im back, yes have been away for a while, but still always checkin out my fellow friends blogs to keep me entertained. You see, my Mamam was sick for a while, she had to go to hospital for a long time and left me in charge. But she is all good now and happy to be back helpin me out to post my latest adventures on this blog!
Well, the other weekend me, Mamam, Papa, Baby Bro and my Grandma (who is all the way over here from Australia) went to swim in the beautiful waters of St Gulliham Desert, which is a beautiful little French town near our home. The water was so clear and fresh! Much nicer than a beach as I dont like waves...they scare me!!
Mamam packed me a picnic lunch and we played fetch all day!! It was so much fun!!
Lots of love from Ripley

Hi Ripley!

Hope you had a fun weekend - we did - it was hot so we played in the pool. It was such fun - we like to fetch things from the water - Paddy gets great height when he jumps but I have more of a 'running in the air' kinda style..

Here are some pics!

Fun with Ribbons!!

Hey Ripper!

Today there was tons of ribbon kicking around the house and so Paddy and I had a ball rolling around playing with it!

Hope you are well and staying out of the cold! It's been raining here for a few days now, so mum and dad have been trying to entertain us indoors, but we can only watch Finding Nemo so many times you know?

What can ya do.

Love Oscar! xxoo

Mamam's Little Helper

Hey look at me, I have such important duties these days.....I am officially baby bro Barkley's personal security guard. Sleeping on duty? - No way, I always have one eye open!
Such a big help I am to Maman, what would she do without me.
Gosh I am so looking forward to the Summer, when will the winter end!
Lots of hugs to everyone,

Winter Blues

Hey Oscar, Paddy and Friends,
I gotta tell ya that I am struggling with the Winter temperatures!! I cant wait for the Summer. Im just not a cold weather kinda guy, you cant go for walks, cant run in the wet grass and worst is that Mamam wont open the windows meaning I cant bark at people walking by!
I do like sitting in front of the fireplace after a milk bath, and cuddles with Mamam though!

Hey mate! Did you have a great Christmas? Your Elf video is brilliant - I see you have been working on your dancing - Paddy will be so impressed!!

We had a fun Christmas - I gave Paddy a Cookie Monster toy and he gave me a bubble making machine!! It is so much fun - we just love bubbles - we chase them and chase them and then have naps and chase them some more. It's super fun, although sometimes when we bite them they taste a bit gross, but it's totally worth it.

Hope you are having fun holidays - love to Lola, Barkley & the gang!

Love Oscar. Bubble King.
