Rookie & LuLu made the 240 mile round trip to Rapid City recently for their spa day. Talk about a couple of shaggy kidz! They just love the folks at Safe Haven Pet Resort http://www.safehavenpetsitting.com

LuLu’s 1st Haircut 

Dad & LuLu at Safe Haven Pet Resort

LuLu & Rookie traveled to Rapid City on Thursday and stayed overnight at the Safe Haven Pet Resort http://www.safehavenpetsitting.com/ .  Since there are no groomers in Martin, this was a wonderful option. I could spend time with the folks while the kidz frolicked in a fun atmosphere and were pampered with a new ‘do’. Safe Haven is just around the corner and down the road a piece from the folk’s apartment. This was LuLu’s first haircut. You may have noticed that Lieu has changed her name to LuLu. Since LuLu is really Mom’s doggie (I’m just the keeper of the food), Mom felt that Lieu was not a girl’s name. She tried to call her Polly but LuLu refused to answer to that. So we came to a compromise and LuLu loves her new name just fine.  Back to Martin on Friday with a full load of dogz and goodies from Walmart. And oh yes, my lovely iced Carmel Machiado from Starbucks. The only obstacle was I found myself driving the zigzag shortcut home in the dark across the rez. The folks tried to tell me that night falls early up here in fall & winter. So must leave Rapid City by 2 or 3pm for the 120 mile return trip. Since it has been in the 30s at night here, I finally accomplished my goal and found a wonderful WARM winter coat in the men’s department at Herbergers in the mall. Now I’m ready. No wait, still don’t have my snow shovel.

Welcome Lieu To the Renaud Household July 22, 2007

Lieutenant Arrowhead Clark RenaudRookie Meets Lieulieu-web-7-21-07.jpg

Lieu ( sounds like Lew) or her official name of ‘Lieutenant Arrowhead Clark Renaud’ joins big brother Rookie at the Renaud house today. Lieu is 8 weeks old, part BICHON FRIEZE & part MUTT.  It is all Chris’ fault as Chris & I went up to his ex-bosses’ home (Clark) for breakfast and there were Jinx &  Professor Shag with their 3 daughters, ‘The Shondells’. Lieu promptly climbed into my lap and refused to leave.  What could I do? So Clark, who has moved to Florida and the big time, promptly gave me the little shaggy moppet. Chris & I tossed around gal names all the way home (Vegas & Dallas were front runners) and finally came up with the a name familiar to police & the military when addressing a Lieutenant, Lieu. Imagine Rookie’s surprise upon first meeting his little sister. A snif & then a total look of disdain. Hopefully he will warm up to her. Oh yeah, and it is also Connie & Manual’s fault cause they just got two babies. And it is Uncle Junior & Gloria’s fault cause Gloria gave Uncle Junior his new little Sassy. OK, done with the blaming.  The best part is that Lieu reminds me of Mom & Dad’s old Peppy.  So Mom & Dad, now you have your part time doggie that you can see whenever you want (or babysit) when you are in Martin.

Two New Babies in The Blanco Household July 16, 2007

Chance & Bear Arrive in the Blanco Household

Look what you both started! Aunt Lois “forced” me to hold and pet Uncle Jr.’s baby, Sassy, and we had been thinking of adopting anyway, now that there’s no human baby in the house. Having Rookie in the house for a month made us realize we missed four legged friends. These new babies are ‘mixed breed’ (like the rest of us:) half poodle and Lhasa Apsa (however you spell it).  “Chance” and “Bear”.  Connie

Well here we all are.  Chris was kind enough to set up a blog for me so that I can stay in touch with my Texas family of friends after I move to SoDakLand. I’m new at this so forgive the beginner’s blunders and take the ride with me. Rookie will have his own spot here to chat about the trials and tribulations of everyday poodle life. At this posting I am spending the weekend at Arrowhead Resort with Chris & Beacon in Chris’ home away from home 5th wheeler. We managed to make our Pilgrimage to Walmart and Starbucks. Chis is pondering how I will survive when the closest Starbucks to my new South Dakota home is in Rapid City, 120 miles west. Sometimes the good things are worth waiting for. Check out Roseanna & Rookie’s Martin, South Dakota home below, with a September 7th move in date.
