This n' That











I went to the local farmers' market this morning with my friend Kim. We opted not to bring our dogs, although there were a lot of dogs there. We noticed a new breed mixture that has been seen around here a lot -- a poodle crossed with a golden retriever. They are crossing other breeds with poodles also to form these hybrid crosses. This "Goldendoodle" is a funny, friendly looking dog, with a beautiful coat and long legs. Since I believe golden retrievers are one of the nicest dogs around, to mix them with a poodle who is very intelligent and non-shedding is a great idea. As Beau says, EVERYONE WANTS TO BE A POODLE!















On another note, here is a picture of a two-headed cat -- ha, ha -- it is my Pierre and Chloe stuffed together in a fairly small basket. Pierre weighs twenty pounds and was in the basket first. Somehow Chloe got herself in there, too. Can you tell where one cat starts and the other ends?











I am totally immersed in books by Janet Evanovich -- the Stephanie Plum series. I just finished Hot Six and am now reading High Five. I think her latest is a number thirteen and I am trying to read them as much in sequence as I can, according to when I can get certain books from the library. They are SO entertaining and so funny.





Okay, as kookiejar says...

Aren't goldendoodles adorable??? I agree with Beau's thinking - everyone wants to be a poodle! Love the cat photo - very cozy!

Gosh, violetlady, I say lots of things; not all of them worth listening to. :)

I think I have to disagree with Beau. I'd like to be a Great Dane.

Mixing breeds, mmmmmm?

violetlady said...

daffodilly, yes - just like chows and german shepherds.

Hmm...a golden doodle, eh? I've never heard of that particular combination. Sounds interesting to say the least. ;D

Awww...love your 2 headed kitty! I have 2 of my own, but they don't generally sleep that close together. My 14 year old Candy is too territorial, although she has deigned to start playing with Dolly, my 2 year old tortoise shell. :-)

Hugs,

Diane
