Today, October 1st, is Poodle Day! Is your canine companion a Poodle, or perhaps one of the many different Poodle mixes, also called Doodle Dogs? A Dawsonville, GA vet lists some cute ways to celebrate with your four-legged friend in this article.
Every breed has their own unique history, traits, appearance, and personalities. It’s always a good idea to do some breed research. There are plenty of great non-fiction books about Poodles out there. If you want something more fun for the kids, there’s even a family-friendly option: The Poodle Who Barked at the Wind by Charlotte Zolotow.
If there was ever a pooch that was fashion forward, it’s the Poodle. Fido can wear 50 different hairstyles, and even has his very own clothing style! The Poodle skirt may not be in fashion these days, but it’s still a solid choice for today’s outfit. You can buy one, make one, wear one, or just use the design as your avatar temporarily.
Fido needs some extra TLC on his special day, too. Toys, treats, and playtime are all great ways to brighten up your pet’s day. This is also a great time to snap some cute photos of your furry friend, and share them on social media. Remember the hashtag #poodleday!
What better way to wind down at the end of the day than by settling in with a great Poodle movie? At the top of this list is the adorable 100% Wolf. In this cute flick, a pup from a family of werewolves is disappointed when he turns into a poodle, rather than a vicious wolf. Then there’s Mr. Too Little, in which a poodle escapes from the circus with his buddy, a Bengal tiger. Last but not least, there’s Oliver & Company, a fun take on Oliver Twist that features a plucky poodle named Georgette.
If you really want to go all-in, you may want to head to Carmel, California, where the whole city celebrates our curly canine pals with an annual Poodle Day Festival. There are parades, parties, and all sorts of fun events for Fido and the family. Of course, it’s probably late for this year, but you can always plan for 2023!
