Kewl, we've never looked at her foot like that so never noticed. That's the only "beauty spot" she has on her toes and I like to tickle that foot in particular, which she acts like it drives her up a wall, but it's funny she doesn't get up and walk away when I'm doing it.

Very sad.
The poodles that are popular with the puppy mills are toy poodles. Teddy is the next size up, a miniature poodle -- don't ask me why "miniature." I didn't chose the name. The third size is a standard.

Teddy came from a reputable breeder. One of my neighbors and close friends is a top-level dog show judge. She was Best-in-Show judge for the 2014 Westminster Kennel Club show. She likes the way Teddy walks. He has a show-dog gate. That and three bucks will get me a cup of coffee.

He and I had a little discussion, and we agreed that I would give him treats, and pet his nose -- and he would let me do that.

The AKC and the Poodle Club of America recognize standard, miniature and toy poodles.

That's why I wrote something about even though I was goofing off on here (i.e. DC). I couldn't take a picture of my actual work screen, it would be breaking Federal law.

I understand. I have to sign confidentiality and conflict if interest documents every year at my job. I mean, so I know who wins certain reality shows a little before they are broadcast, or I can't talk about how horrible some of our on air "talent" is.

The gubmint must be even worse.

Yep, we have to do that too and we have to sit through these stupid little video tutorials and take tests afterward, and you have to pass the tests so you actually have to watch the stupid things every single freaking year.

HIPAA, right? I remember those, and I never even had contact with patients or their information.
