About Bella and DiDi

I am a 10-year-old perfect specimen of black Standard Poodle. I enjoy playing catch, lovingly nibbling on my humans’ hands, Cedar-Plank Salmon and Champagne.

Since I can remember, I have always been told that I am incredibly smart. My humans thought about sending me to law school but I begged them to let me dispense my endless knowledge to others instead.

Just don’t try to reach me after 9 pm because I like to get my beauty sleep.

I am a 6-year-old black Standard Poodle or so they tell me. Personally, I think I am part Poodle and part 4-wheel-drive vehicle. I love nature, climbing stone walls, jumping fences, whole rotisserie chickens and light beer.

Sometimes, my humans call me a clown because I collapse in all different positions looking for a cuddle.

I am a young dog so I stay up late. I love to howl at the moon so if you hear me howl back.

  1. You two are so cute!! I have a 10 month old Bichon Frise named Daisy. If you are on facebook she has a page on there and so do I. Thanks for stopping by my blog the other day πŸ™‚

    • Hi! Thanks so much for finding us and the lovely comment! We were happy to find your site πŸ™‚

      As far as the champagne our humans don’t give us any but when they drink it we get a little taste when we do pre-wash at the dish washer. Also, we have a champagne bottle toy that we like to drink from.

      Talk to you soon. We’re excited for your question.

  3. Dawnel likes… I’m similar to DiDi. I’m a cat like my friend Paws in Colorado. I like Tillamook cheese Is it good for me? Or should I stay on the same Tread Mill?

    • Hi Dawnel,
      Thanks for the comment and for reading! We see nothing wrong with a little indulgence every now and then. Enjoy your cheese just as long as it doesn’t make you sick.
      Talk to you soon.

  5. Oh thank you for stopping by our blog! Mom is also a snob when it comes to good champagne!! So she can TOTALLY relate! We look forward to following your adventures!

  6. Kyla here. We terriers are a stubborn lot and don’t ask questions because we know it all. What I don’t know, Kenzie knows. I’ve always wanted to know what a poodle’s opinion of the “poodle cut” used in dog shows. No sense talking to peeps, I want the deal from the poodle.

  7. Well it’s nice to meet you two. Thanks for popping by The Scottie Chronicles. Hope you enjoy my daily musings as much as I’ll be sure to enjoy your wisdom.

    ArooooOOOOO, Stuart
    PS That’s Scottie talk for just about everything from hello to give me more food to I love you, etc.

Talk to us! We're listening.
