Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

Hi everyone!
I thought I would share our annual family Christmas letter to give you our year in review.  As you can see, it has been crazy!  I wish you all the best, with lots of puppy kisses.  I hope the new year is full of happiness and joy.  Talk to you in 2013!
Rudy the Red Nosed Poodle

A Rudy tooty hello from my family and me!

Hi Everyone,

Rudy here to fill you in on the activities of the house.  It seems like we are always busy, maybe because we are!  Between medical, business, new books, school and everyday life, we manage to keep our schedules pretty full.  I enjoy it, but Mommy and Daddy might be getting too old.

Daddy is doing well in school.  He studies very hard.  I am proud of him.

We had a new book launch in March.  It’s called Rudy O’Tooty.  Mommy and Daddy went out to the west coast this year, meeting many people in San Francisco.  They had fun.  Mommy had her picture taken and did a video with a firefighter named Martin.


Rudy’s Little World has a new Face book fan page!  We also still do our blog and web site.  This year we have participated in several events for the National Kidney Foundation.  In fact our fourth, “Rudy’s Little Holiday Book Sale” is currently running.  It is a cause near to our hearts since Daddy is a donor, Mommy is a transplant recipient and I have kidney disease.

I visit my vet three times a week.  It gives me a chance to perform and meet new friends.

Boomer! is a great brother.  He is very understanding when I leave and we snuggle when I get back home.  Our favorite place is still our back yard.  It is full of fond memories and just waiting for us to make many more.

Happy Holidays, Grace and Peace, Keep on Rocking-
Rudy, Boomer!, Mommy and Daddy (cause I don’t know their real names, sorry)

Solo This Time

Mommy had to take it easy for a few days, so we did a bunch of writing ahead of time.  That included blogs, fan page posts, a press release and a letter.  We were busy!  Since Mommy had to lay low a bit longer, I decided to handle this blog my self.

The weather has been vast and varied.  It was very warm and then snowed over 12 inches.  The snow stopped and it immediately got really cold!  I had to wear my tundra coat.  Within a few days, it rained for over 24 hours straight and got sunny.  That took care of most of the snow.  We only have one inch left.  Crazy, right?  It has been an adventure going outside.  First we are digging tunnels, now we are slipping in slush.

Playing frisbee has been a challenge for Boomer!  He has done several somersaults and mid air flips.  More often than not, he ends up with the frisbee in his mouth!

My new fan page is fun.  I post lots of pictures to show everyone my family and friends.  Everyone gets to see how funny I am too.

Our book sale is over now.  Made a little money for the NKF.  Most important, we tried our best.

We hope to play with Gertie and and Hobey Baker before the snow piles up again and we can't reach the fence.

Now it's time to watch Rudolph and Charlie Brown before Christmas gets here,  We love them.

Good News

People have requested it and now it's here!  We have a new fan page on Facebook.  It's  Please take a moment to "like" us!  We have already posted some cute photos and we will post more often.

The Rudy's Little Holiday Book Sale kicked off on Monday.  So far we have sold 15 books.  It's a good start, but we'd really like to raise more for the NKF.

My last vet visits went well.  My labs are stable and that is good news.  When I trotted into my vet's office for my fluids, they all cheered!  Everyone was very happy.

I made friends with a little Yorkie at the vet.  Now I have someone to hang with when the troop of white poodles are there.  For some reason the white ones don't dance anymore, so the Yorkie and I are more than happy to fill the gap.
