Full size standard poodles are huge!.......
I jumped up and it ran off the deck into the back yard and just stood there. I tried to coax it over but it just wouldnt come so I laid back down. About 10 minutes later it did the same thing and when I got up it went back out into the back yard. Again I tried to coax it over but it just kept its distance.
Again I laid back down and again the dog came up onto the deck but this time it laid down at the foot of my lounge chair and allowed me to pet it and it stayed. I then went into the house and got a leash and came back out and attached it to its collar and tethered it to the deck railing.
I then went into the house and called the local humane society and asked if anyone had reported the dog missing and they said yes and asked me if I would bring it to them. I told them I only had a 2 seater car and that the dog wouldnt fit so I asked them to give me the owners phone number so I could call them about the dog. They informed me that that was private info and that they could not give me that information.
I then gave them my phone info and requested they have the family call me if they called back. About an hour later, I got a call from the humane society who said that the family had called again and if it was ok they call me DUH! I already requested that.
Anyway, about 15 minutes later the family called and as it turned out, they were in my neighborhood looking for the dog. A few minutes later the two sons showed up in their vehicle and reclaimed the dog.
Here is the kicker: the dog had wandered thru multiple subdivisions covering a span of about 4 miles to finally end up at my place.
That made my day but also alerted me to a potential problem with dealing with the humane society
Anybody know where the Pit Bull shows up on the list? I mean not mine, he is a total numbnut. I mean pits in general
I know a couple that do very well on field trial. After all the poodle is a water dog.
