For once I happened to have the day off when a poodle meetup was happening. I love to go see all the poodles, even if Sophie doesn't really care much about playing with other dogs anymore.
She was the shaggiest dog there! But not much inclined to mingle.
Cindy, the organizer, made up little treat bags, and each poodle had to do a trick of some kind to "win" one, be it as simple as a sit-stay for Petey:
Or as complex as a game of tic-tac-toe for Inca:
But really, there were enough treats for everyone we all came stocked with full pockets. And every moocher knew it.
A treat also helped keep the interest of Sebastian, the youngest attendee at seven months, as I snapped his picture with Sophie, the oldest.
Poodles are the best!
