Mr.Spaetzle: Okay. You can bring your dog to school for your Halloween literary tribute. But it had better be good. You can;t just say his name is Oedipus Rex or even Dog Quixote.  Caulfield: Give me some credit.  Miss Plainwell: Hey, hey! It's Edger Allan Poodle!

    Or is it Melancholy, following him like a black dog?

    Now if the poodle’s name turns out to be Diana, we have “The Scythe of Time [A Predicament]” by Edgar Allen Poe..(In which Poe quotes Cervantes)

    This is no joke. I have a cat named Edgar Allen Pussycat. Although he is so fat these days I sometimes call him Edgar Allen Pussycow.

    heard that poodles were bred as hunting dogs. to retrieve water fowl. but some dogs, i wonder though. and, the akc is a bunch of bigoted people who only want pure-bred dogs, even if the dogs are totally inbred. what happened to the belief that dogs are our companions no matter if they are pure-bred or mutts. also, is it true about the dogs and their owners looking like each other?

    @vwdualnomand – the real poodle, the tall kind, is a water fowl hunting dog and in France you can still see some being used as such. They never appear in canine shows somehow, and people have a hard time recognising them when they meet them without the snobbish hair cut. My in-laws neighbour hunts with them in the swamps and wouldn’t change breed for anything.

    Mixed-breed dogs are the best! I have two now, they are 7th and 8th in a procession that started in 1969. They have either come up to the house on their own and stayed, or been adopted from our local Humane Society. Each has been a welcome member of our family. GO MUTTS!

    Caufield needs a trimmed mustache and goatee and he’d pull off Steinbeck with his trusty traveling partner, Charley.

    Miss Plainwell is really raven about Caulfield’s clever idea.

    Caulfield knows his Faust. The poodle in Goethe’s play is large and scary, leaves a wake of fire behind him.

    What was in the feeder? Robins don’t eat seed – insects, worms and berries are most of their diet. You’ve never had a good laugh until you’ve seen a robin drunk on naturally fermented berries.
